Lose the Lines this Summer with Botox® / Dysport®

Infini sweat gland ablationHow about a Botox or Dysport treatment for summer? Typically in this sunny season we love to look our best. We’re in natural light and on the go, making memories with family and friends. A refresh to tired eyes or forehead lines might be just the perfect brightening lift you need to boost your confidence. Both of these treatments provide an easy way to lift brows and lose the lines without downtime. You won’t have to take a hiatus from your busy lifestyle.

Botox and Dysport are well-known neuromodulators manufactured by different companies. Both products use botulinum toxin, and are very comparable. Much like the difference between Coke and Pepsi, it’s a preference by the patient and Dr. Cappuccino as well as our experienced and licensed RN Injector Christine.

The repetition of muscle contractions create the wrinkles that patients like to reduce. Over time, squinting and smiling results in crow’s feet, forehead lines, and lines between brows. Injected Botox or Dysport diminishes the appearance of these lines, and provides a subtle lift to the brow. These neuromodulators temporarily reduce muscle contractions, which causes the muscles to relax. Relaxed muscles aren’t able to fully respond to nerve impulses. This results in eyes that look refreshed and awake, a smooth forehead, a lifted lip, or a softened chin.

Botox and Dysport can give you a youthful, natural result. As we say in the aesthetics world, fresh not frozen! Come in for a consultation with Dr. Cappuccino or Christine and we’ll customize a treatment plan for your desired result. For the month of July, receive free Botox with your Infini-RF Sweat Gland Ablation series. Stop sweating, and frowning this summer!

Infini: Radiofrequency & Anti-Aging for Summer Skin

shutterstock_134521247-(1) (1)Patients often ask me if there are any good treatments for their skin that can be done in the summer when they know they will be exposed to UV light. This is the perfect time to try Infini. What if we told you this radiofrequency technology tightens skin, treats wrinkles, and corrects acne scarring? Infini provides anti-aging results similar to a non-invasive facelift. Now we have your attention!

For the month of June at Guy Cappuccino, MD we are offering a free syringe of Bellafill filler with your Infini Face & Neck series purchase. Bellafill also helps keep our skin smooth and is perfectly safe any time of year. Many anti-aging treatments like lasers can’t be performed on summer skin, or on patients with darker skin tones, because certain lasers and light treatments are attracted to the darker pigment in your skin. If you have a suntan, or darker skin tone, you can safely have Infini treatments. Unlike lasers, radiofrequency energy is not attracted to the darker pigment. Infini is safer than a laser, with less downtime.

Infini is a revolutionary radiofrequency energy device that tackles aging skin by tightening and treating wrinkles. It also corrects acne scarring. The device sends high intensity radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis of the skin and stimulates collagen production for wrinkle reduction. We lose collagen as we age, so this stimulation of collagen turns the clock back on our skin. Think of it like an anti-aging controlled ‘injury.’ The collagen ‘fights’ back by strengthening and producing 3-D volumization, and this results in more youthful skin.

Since the treatment targets the dermis as opposed to the surface of your skin, it maximizes results with very minimal discomfort and downtime. You might be a little pink the day after treatment, with the potential for some swelling the first 24 hours. You can apply makeup the day after your treatment. Infini is ideal rejuvenation for treating face, neck, and hands. Depending on the number of areas we are treating, your appointment should be 45 minutes to one hour, with an additional hour for pre-treatment numbing.

Call today to schedule your Infini consultation, and we can customize a treatment plan for your desired goal. LIKE us on Facebook to stay up-to-date on Facebook exclusive giveaways and promotions for Infini—and more!

 

Look Great Now and Later with Bellafill

June is all about Bellafill at Guy Cappuccino, MD Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. Bellafill Cappuccino-6-17-Promo-Web (1)provides beautiful, natural-looking volume to soften smile lines and acne scars. It is proven to be safe, effective, and long-lasting with minimal to no downtime. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers that are temporary and require repeat touch-ups, Bellafill is a unique FDA-approved collagen based filler that works in two ways. This means less time spent at appointments, and less time under the needle. Let’s talk about the beautiful benefits of Bellafill.

How is Bellafill unique?

Bellafill is unique from other fillers because it works in two ways. Immediate volume takes place as the smooth collagen gel filler lifts depressed skin to the level of the surrounding skin in smile lines and acne scars. Long lasting improvement takes place as the polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres also create a matrix to support your body’s own collagen production. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen. This support structure from the microspheres gives lasting improvement by restoring your skin as opposed to temporarily filling it. The result is a smoother, more youthful appearance.

How long will it last?

Results are proven to last through 5 years in smile lines, and 1 year in acne scars. At the 5-year mark 83% of patients were still satisfied with their smile lines results. At the 1-year mark 90% of patients were still satisfied with their results for acne scars. Bellafill creates natural-looking, enduring results. Your body naturally metabolizes and absorbs the collagen over time, but the volumizing results of the support matrix from the PMMA microspheres lays the foundation for long-term smoothness.

Bellafill can be used alone or in combination with other treatments. During June we’re offering a free syringe of Bellafill with the purchase of an Infini Face & Neck Series. Contact us to take advantage of this $1,000 Bellafill value, it’s limited to the first 5 patients. Get your own beautiful benefits with Bellafill!

Cappuccino_microneedlingWhen you choose to have a cosmetic treatment such as microneedling, you’re committing to improving the look, feel and health of your skin. To speed up your skin’s recovery and enhance your results, it’s important to take special care of your skin after your microneedling treatment. This month only, we’re offering a free Skinfuse Post-Microneedling Kit with purchase of a microneedling series. Using an appropriate skincare system protects and enhances your microneedling investment.

Get Your Beauty in Bloom with Microneedling

Cappuccino-5-17-Promo-Web_1Are you ready to get your beauty in bloom for spring? Perhaps winter left you with dull skin, and you’d like to improve texture, fine lines, and acne scars. Microneedling is a wonderful treatment option for patients that aren’t ready for the downtime associated with laser resurfacing treatments.

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to make controlled micro-injuries to your skin. The device we use is the Eclipse MicroPen. The needles of the MicroPen puncture the skin to create channels. The body triggers the skin to respond to these micro-injuries by naturally producing new collagen and elastin to fill the channels. As we age, our bodies slow the production of collagen and elastin. By turning back the clock on this collagen and elastin loss, microneedling offers several benefits.

Benefits of Microneedling

Our microneedling treatments can reverse years of sun damage. The MicroPen targets fine lines, texture, acne scarring, large pores, and minor blemishes. The benefits include smoother, firmer, younger looking skin. The depth of the needle and the number of treatments depend on the area and the desired result of the patient. A series of treatments is typically recommended, about one to two months apart. Recovery time with the MicroPen is minimal. You may experience some redness, tenderness, or minimal swelling the first 24 hours post treatment.

You will notice some immediate improvement after your treatment, and your results will continue to improve over the next 6 to 12 months as the collagen and elastin rebuilds. Contact us to schedule your complimentary consultation for microneedling, and we’ll customize a treatment plan based on your skin goals.
