Botox

BOTOX®

You’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy.

Real, noticeable results

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Dysport

What is Dysport®?

Move toward a natural look, wrinkles aren’t your style and “frozen face” isn’t either.

For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that disappear, not your expressions.

Those who want a natural look choose Dysport. Don’t surrender to a look that’s just not you. Take charge of your frown lines by asking for Dysport by name.

How does Dysport work?

One injection. Five points. Loads of confidence.

Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which means they can even develop in younger adults. One injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. In other words, no frozen face, just natural-looking results. You can control your look instead of your look controlling you.

How long does Dysport last?

Forget frown lines for up to 4 months!

You’ve got better things to do than think about what your forehead wrinkles look like. In just one 10-20 minute treatment, Dysport may help improve the look of your frown lines for up to 4 months. The majority of patients see improvement in just 2–3 days after treatment.

Juvederm

 JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are natural looking and long lasting.

What is JUVÉDERM® made from?

The JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.

What should you expect?

Dr. Tapper administers the treatment during a brief office visit. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM® XC, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC contain lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during treatment. If you’re still concerned about treatment discomfort, your aesthetic specialist may offer additional anesthetic options for you.

A natural substance that keep your skin looking and feeling youthful

Hyaluronic acid (HA) has been used in facial aesthetics for almost two decades. As one of nature’s most versatile substances, it has many functions. In your skin, it provides elasticity and volume and retains moisture. Emervel HA gels resemble your body’s own HA.
