Botox®/ Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) are a biologic, neurotoxin that is injected into specific muscles, causing weakness and or paralysis, resulting in relaxation of the muscle and improvement of skin lines. Lines from wrinkling of the skin can be caused by overactive facial expression of muscles, aging, sun damage, heredity, and gravity.
Botox®/ Dysport® are a safe aesthetic procedure, improving the appearance of glabella area frown lines, located between the eyebrows; crow’s feet (lateral areas of the eyes); and forehead wrinkles. The procedure is relatively painless and patients may feel a slight burning sensation while the solution is being injected. The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes and the results can last between 3-6 months. Re-treatment may occur after 3 months.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin and it helps keep your skin plump and hydrated. As we age we lose fat, collagen and elastin, which causes our skin to sag, wrinkle and look hollow.
Dermal fillers are used to address the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, volume loss, and restoring structure and support. Fillers can also be used to enhance lips, cheeks, jawline, chins, and brighten the under eye area.
If you bruise or swell after dermal injections, we offer Alastin Skincare INhance, which helps accelerate recovery.

Restoring Volume and Iimproving Skin Structure
As you age, your skin produces less collagen, the protein responsible for the structural integrity of your skin. This, along with other lifestyle factors, causes skin laxity, wrinkles, and folds.

Sculptra in Lansing is regenerative medicine that stimulates your own body to rebuild lost collagen. Using its' poly-L-lactic formula, it works by help skin cells regenerate fo the long term by stimulating your own collagen to restore lost volume.
Platelet-rich plasma consists of two elements: plasma, or the liquid portion of blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell that plays an important role in healing throughout the body. Platelets contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal.
To create platelet-rich plasma, we draw your blood and place it into a centrifuge that rapidly spins the blood sample and, separates the blood from the platelets.
