Essentially Bare has been working with neurotoxins such as BOTOX®, and dermal fillers for more than 10 years. Our practice has always been overseen by a physician, and our experienced N.P.s and R.N.s were trained at Medical Aesthetics Associates (MAA) by Dr. Joseph Russo, Board Certified and Harvard-trained Plastic Surgeon.
Our practitioners treat fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume with an array of cosmetic injectable materials including BOTOX® and fillers: Voluma®, Volbella®, Juvederm®, Vollure®, and Ultra Plus®. We also use Kybella®, which is an injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.
Today, not only are these services more affordable, they are highly popular. Our cosmetic injectors receive ongoing training as new and enhanced techniques develop. According to American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, BOTOX injections continue to lead minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the United States, at more than 7 million injections. It is a popular treatment option as an alternative to more invasive procedures for its effectiveness, immediacy, affordability and minimal recovery time.
Acetylcholine inhibitors and dermal fillers allow patients to achieve rejuvenation by effectively reducing wrinkles or compensating for the loss of collagen and muscle tone that all of us experience as we age. While BOTOX®, Xeomin® and Dysport® (known as injectable neuromodulators) can smooth away an “angry” line between your eyebrows, smooth the forehead or eliminate crow’s feet around the eyes, dermal fillers yield both subtle and dramatic results for lips, marionette lines (nasolabial folds) and wrinkle reduction. These injections can achieve facial sculpting such as cheeks and chin. At the time of consultation, our medical staff will discuss with you the options and listen to your desired results. We encourage patients to bring a photo of themselves that they like.
At the time of consultation, we will ask you detailed questions about your lifestyle because all factors affect the longevity of injectables. Because each patient’s needs are unique, the required number of units recommended to achieve desired results will vary. Each person absorbs Botox and fillers differently, based on metabolic rate and other factors. This means that the longevity of the results will also vary.
