Botox® Cosmetic is a purified toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox® Cosmetic, in extremely small doses, is injected into the specific muscles that cause frown lines, forehead crease, and wrinkles near outside corner of the eyes (crows’ feet). Within days there’s a noticeable improvement of the lines in the areas injected. Botox® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you had work done. At the Straith Clinic, Botox® Cosmetic injections are performed by our board-certified Plastic Surgeon (ASPS).
Juvederm® is gel indicated for the correction of moderate to severe lines along the sides of the nose and mouth (such as nasolabial folds). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps to retain moisture and elasticity. Young, healthy skin has an abundance of this substance. As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin is reduced by sunlight, aging, and other factors. This lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, which then leads to facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm XC is an injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid which helps to replace the HA that has been lost. This helps to add volume and smooth out the skin. Juvederm has been tested on both female and male patients and all skin types, so everyone can enjoy the benefits. Juvederm XC is also available in two formulations, Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. Radiesse, Restylane, and Perlane are also fillers to restore volume and smooth facial wrinkles. The results can last from 6 to 12 months. Your healthcare professional will determine which filler is right for you.

Chemical peels are performed using a chemical solution to peel away the skin’s top layers. This procedure works best on fair skin with superficial wrinkles. Results vary and depend on the exact concentration of the selected solution’s formula. Chemical peels, depending on the doctor’s discretion, the type of peel, and your goals may be performed multiple times to obtain a desired result. Peels are performed by both the board-certified plastic surgeon and esthetician depending on the strength of the peel. Find out about the new “Perfect Peel” now available at the Straith Clinic Medi-Spa.
