Facial Rejuvenation Q & A
What is Exilis Ultra 360™?
Exilis Ultra 360 is an advanced treatment platform that uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and ultrasound to smooth and tighten your skin. Treatments can be performed on the face, neck, or upper chest.
Collagen loss is a primary cause of sagging, wrinkled skin. During youth, your body has a thick layer of collagen that smooths and plumps your skin. As you age, you lose much of that natural padding.
Exilis Ultra 360 treatments create heat in the deeper layers of your skin. Your body responds by creating new collagen, which smooths and tightens your skin, decreasing the appearance of lines, folds, and wrinkles. It takes 2-4 treatments to achieve optimal results, which develop over a period of months following your sessions.
How can botulinum toxin refresh and revive my appearance?
Botulinum toxin is an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. The treatment works by temporarily impeding the ability of targeted facial muscles to go through their full range of motion.
That means those muscles will no longer be able to tug and draw your skin into folds, lines, and wrinkles. You’ll look younger, better rested, and more approachable, all without the risks that come with invasive surgery.
Botulinum toxin is made by several different companies and the different products differ in speed of onset, duration of effect, and cost. In general, you can expect results to last around four months. At that time, you’ll begin to notice your wrinkles gradually returning. You can decide if you’d like to extend your results with another treatment.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables that work to restore lost facial volume. Most are made of a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, a substance your body creates naturally.
There are numerous types of dermal fillers, all of which have a unique composition and formulation. Some are thicker than others, making them a better fit for certain areas of the face. Dermal fillers can restore or enhance volume in your cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and crow’s feet.
Dr. Chastanet offers a variety of high-quality products such as RADIESSE®, REVANESSE VERSA®, ® BELOTERO BALANCE®, and JUVÉDERM® family of dermal fillers. She and her staff have the training and experience needed to administer these injections in the exact placement and the precise volume needed to create a beautiful result.
