BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, and Other Injectable Facial Treatments

Along with other rejuvenating, non-invasive facial injectables, Dr. Kimberly A. Henry offers Restylane® and BOTOX® Cosmetic to the San Francisco Bay Area at all three of her prestigious cosmetic surgery centers. By reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and adding moisture to the skin, these procedures can help restore youthfulness and vitality to a patient's complexion. Facial injectables are effective alternatives to more traditional and invasive plastic surgery techniques, such as facelifts and brow lifts. Patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, or another injectable can often return to their normal activities the very same day of their procedure.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

More than 4 million BOTOX® injections were performed in the United States in 2006, making BOTOX® Cosmetic the most common cosmetic procedure in the country. BOTOX® injections specifically target the lines, or furrows, that are located between the eyebrows. These lines can make patients appear older, and can also make them seem consistently angry, sad, tired, or confused. Although small, these deep lines around the brow area can significantly disrupt the facial aesthetics and affect a person's self-esteem and self-confidence.

To reduce the appearance of severe brow wrinkles, Dr. Kimberly A. Henry offers BOTOX® Cosmetic to San Francisco Bay Area patients at all three of her locations. The BOTOX® injections contain a naturally-occurring protein known as botulinum toxin type A, which paralyzes the muscles underneath the brow region so that they are unable to contract and wrinkle. When performed by an experienced, qualified plastic surgeon like Dr. Henry, the procedure is safe, quick, and virtually painless. Results can last up to six months, and generally there are no restrictions placed on patients who desire subsequent treatments. Please contact one of Dr. Kimberly A. Henry's plastic surgery centers to learn more about receiving BOTOX® therapy in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Restylane®

Restylane® injections are safely administered to San Francisco Bay Area patients at the esteemed centers of Dr. Kimberly A. Henry. Approved by the Federal Drug Administration in 2004, Restylane® has ushered in a whole new era of wrinkle treatment. Whereas BOTOX® Cosmetic specifically targets furrowed brows, Restylane® can effectively treat lines across the forehead, nasolabial lines that run from the nose to the mouth, and marionette lines that lead down from the mouth towards the chin.

Restylane® injections contain a substance called hyaluronic acid, which forms naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic; it attracts water molecules and binds to them, boosting moisture, plumping the skin, and smoothing unwanted wrinkles. Restylane® injections increase the body's supply of hyaluronic acid to its optimal level so that maximum hydration is assured and its age-defying benefits are obtained.

The advantages of Restylane® are similar to those of BOTOX® Cosmetic and other injectable facial treatments: it can help patients to look and feel years younger without disrupting their lifestyles. Restylane® injections are quick and painless, and it's possible to resume normal activities almost immediately following treatment. The resulting youthful glow can last for up to six months, at which time the extra hyaluronic acid will have harmlessly dissipated into the body. Please contact Dr. Kimberly A. Henry today for facial rejuvenation with Restylane® at one of her San Francisco-area centers.

ArteFill®, CosmoDerm®, CosmoPlast®, Perlane®, Radiesse®, Sculptra®, Juvéderm™, and fat transfers each have their advantages.
