The JUVÉDERM® family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
JUVÉDERM® is the first smooth consistency gel formulation and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA to last up to one year from initial treatment. JUVÉDERM® is developed using the proprietary HYLACROSS™ technology, an advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable, smooth gel that flows easily and consistently into the skin and provides a predictable result. All other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers currently on the market have a granular consistency gel. These granules can be seen under 2.4x magnification as opposed to the smooth consistency gel of the JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers.

As we age, gravity continues to work and our skin and muscles begin to lose their elasticity and strength. By removing excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids, blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes. Eyelids that droop or bulge can cause a person to appear much older or fatigued. This procedure can be performed on men and women alike and offers a younger, more refreshed look. Blepharoplasty is typically a cosmetic procedure but can also be done to improve peripheral vision by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient’s field of vision. In fact, insurance often pays for a blepharoplasty if testing can prove visual significance.
Blepharoplasty cannot be used to raise the eyebrows or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet or dark circles under the eyes. It is important for patients to have realistic expectations before undergoing surgery in order to be satisfied with the results. While this procedure can enhance your appearance, it cannot alter your entire appearance or change the structure of your face.
The procedure is performed as an outpatient with local anesthesia and IV sedation. Patients may choose to have this procedure on their upper or lower eyelids or both. Incisions are made along the eyelids in inconspicuous places (in the creases of the upper lids and just below the lashes on the lower lids). Dr. Stancey removes excess tissue through these incisions and then stitches them closed with fine sutures. Swelling and bruising usually subside within two weeks and the patient may resume normal non-strenuous activity after two days.
XEOMIN® is a prescription medication used in facial aesthetics to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) in adults.
XEOMIN® contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
XEOMIN® is also sometimes referred to as incobotulinumtoxinA.
XEOMIN® in Aesthetics: How Does it Work?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.
Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.

When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested services. Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for 3-4 months with no downtime or surgery and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, and horizontal lines across the forehead.
Even though BOTOX® is not a surgical procedure, it is very important to choose a highly experienced and qualified physician when deciding to undergo BOTOX® treatments. Doctors who are less familiar with the technique could leave you looking “frozen” or perpetually surprised. Dr. Stancey is intimately familiar with BOTOX® Cosmetic, having successfully treated hundreds of patients at our office. Not only that, she also takes the time to talk with each candidate before beginning the injections to find out what he or she wants to achieve and to determine how best to correct the problem area(s) so patients can be happy again with their smoother, younger-looking faces.
