Botox® Cosmetic is used to reduce wrinkles on the face and is the most requested anti-aging procedure. It is a purified protein toxin produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. Although Botox® Cosmetic is a toxin, there have been no serious side effects reported. This is because it is used in extremely small amounts and does not spread throughout the body.
Dysport® is a FDA approved Botulinum toxin injection which is used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines. Similar to Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® is a protein extracted from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It will help relax muscles in the face that create unwanted expressions, such as frown lines between the brows, lines in the forehead, and crows feet. After Dysport® is injected into the muscle, those muscles are relaxed for approximately 3 to 4 months.

Radiesse® is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin.

Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a substance derived from your own blood that can be used to trigger a healing response. Platelets contain several growth factors that attract stem cells and increase rebuilding of tissues over several months. It was initially developed in the 1970s and has been used since the mid-1990s to aid bone healing after spinal injury and soft tissue recovery following plastic surgery. More recently, PRP has become popular for healing sports injuries and for cosmetic procedures to increase collagen and improve overall skin health. Recent studies have also shown PRP treatment can stimulate stem cells for hair re-growth on the scalp.
Ultrasound Guided Joint Injections Platelet rich plasma injections can be used in the treatment of many musculoskeletal injuries including that of tendons, muscles, and joints. It is especially beneficial for tendons, as they tend to heal more slowly due to poor blood supply. The utilization of advanced ultrasound technology may be used to guide the injection depending on the injury and injection site. Typically, 2 or more injections are required, separated by 4-6 weeks apart. This may vary depending on your injury.
