BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections
Many people have prematurely developed facial wrinkles as a result of excess activity of the facial muscles, the so called "laugh lines" or "frown lines". A new and exciting treatment for these lines using BOTOX® Cosmetic injections is a solution for this group of patients. BOTOX® Cosmetic, or Botulinum Toxin, is a chemical which relaxes the muscle by blocking nerve stimulation. Originally used for uncontrolled spasm of the eye muscles, clinicians have found that by blocking the repetitive muscle activity, the resulting wrinkles will soften and, in some cases, may be undetectable. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to treat "laugh lines", "frown lines", "crows feet" and vertical bands in the neck. And the best part is that there is no recovery period! The effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic is temporary so repeated treatments may be needed every 3 to 6 months. Eventually some of the prolonged muscle inactivity may be permanent so that the treatments can be discontinued. Dr. Fata believes that BOTOX® Cosmetic is the fastest, safest and most effective technique to treat facial wrinkles that has ever been developed.
Ultrasonic liposuction (Ultrasound Assisted Lipoplasty or UAL) is a new technique in which a specialized liposuction instrument emits high frequency sound waves which liquefy the fat before it is removed. This technique has changed liposuction into a finesse procedure because the fat can be removed with greater precision and less trauma. Ultrasonic liposuction has greatly improved results in certain areas, such as the back, upper abdomen and breast, which had previously been resistant to traditional liposuction because of the high concentration of fibrous connective tissue. Now more than ever before Ultrasonic Liposuction offers you a way to have the shape you've always wanted. Check back with "What's New" for current updates!
