BOTOX ® Cosmetic, a purified form of botulinum toxin, is a popular method of reducing or eliminating frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s-feet around the eye area, forehead creases, thick bands in the neck, and fine lines that develop with age. BOTOX® injections at our office in Sacramento, near Stockton and Roseville, are safe and convenient, and the wrinkle-reducing results of each treatment last up to four months. Many people are finding that a combination of Botox® Cosmetic and Juvéderm® provides for a longer lasting correction and a more balanced natural appearance. For some Laser Resurfacing, Juvéderm® and Botox® Cosmetic provides a more complete rejuvenation. At your consultation, Dr. Charles Perry will provide you with some options to address you aesthetic concerns.

Dysport much like Botox® Cosmetic is used to chemically relax the muscles of the face. The relaxation of the facial muscles attained with Dysport injections are completed quickly, taking only about 10 -15 minutes. The effects can usually be seen within 2 to 4 days. Dr. Perry will begin by examining your face and the sources of your creases or wrinkles. He will identify the muscles to be treated, cleanse the area, apply a topical or local anesthetic if needed, and then delivers Dysport or Restylane® or even Juvéderm® if needed to the treatment area through a micro needle. After treatment, you will want to ice the area for 10 minutes and you will be free to return to your usual activities.
Restylane® is a natural, hypoallergenic dermal filler used to correct age-related facial wrinkles, folds, and hollowness, including the deep creases that appear between the nose and mouth. Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic or Restylane® injections at our practice near Folsom, Stockton, Woodland, Yuba City, and Roseville can also add volume to the lips to compensate for aging or naturally thin lips. Off FDA label uses of Restylane® for volume in the cheeks, lower eyelid brow and nose can add quite a dramatic enhancement. Some patients find that Restylane® combined with Dysport and a light Laser resurfacing can add quite a boost to their appearance and they can return to work that same day.

Thinking about facial enhancement. Juvéderm® may be right for you. Juvéderm® is the latest in in a line of hyaluronic acids to be produced by Allergan, makers of Botox® Cosmetic. There are several types of Juvéderm® to choose from. Juvéderm® Ultra is used for fine lines and is a smaller finer filler. Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is a little firmer and is great for larger lines or creases and lifting or volumizing the face. Juvéderm® is similar to Restylane®, in that it is a hyaluronic acid that is used to correct age related wrinkles and volume loss that occurs with aging. Juvéderm® is also used in combination with laser rejuvenation and Botox®. Dr Charles Perry likes the way the combination of Juvéderm® and Botox® look as the effects are often synergistic. When considering facial rejuvenation it is important to consider that not all people need only one syringe. Often some will look better with several syringes of product and different combinations of products including Juvéderm®, Restylane® or Radiesse™.
Juvéderm® is a smooth product that enables your tissues to hold more water and provides a natural soft look and feels smooth as well. If you are over 18 and thinking of facial enhancement and want a smooth look and feel Juvéderm® may be right for you.
Juvéderm® is hypoallergenic. It contains a sugar or polymer produced from bacteria that occurs naturally in our tissues and is produced naturally by cells specifically for the human.
Where is Juvéderm® used?
Most commonly Juvéderm® is used in the creases around the lips. Non-FDA uses that are commonly sought are improving the fullness of the lips and around the eyes to reduce the wrinkles. It can also be used to shape the eye brows and the dorsum of the nose.
Risks of Juvéderm®
The injection of Juvéderm® is often done with local numbing medications to make the injection comfortable. Bruising and swelling are common with injectables however these are often temporary and resolve in a couple of days.

At Chrysalis Cosmetics, our chief priorities are your safety and comfort, which is why we utilize the AccuVein® Vein Viewing System. This remarkable handheld device allows our experienced plastic surgeon and our team of medical specialists to view a map of your vascular system to more precisely administer treatment, particularly in the case of cosmetic injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, and Restylane®. The AccuVein® equipment projects an image of your veins onto the surface of your skin in the area to be treated, providing a “map” of where to inject the rejuvenating product. During the procedure, we can avoid injecting the formula into the sensitive veins and home in on the regions that will optimize your results. During the initial consultation, we will customize the treatment plan to suit your unique anatomical needs and cosmetic goals using the AccuVein® system. In addition to enhanced accuracy, AccuVein® also helps to minimize the risk of bruising and reduces the potential for repeated sticks, typically diminishing the already brief recovery time for non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
