What is Botox, Dysport, Xeomin & Jeuveau?
They are neuromodulators that are safe and effective prescription medicines that contain purified proteins . When injected directly into muscles they provide a smoothing effect on moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles that can last up to 4 months.
How long does it last?
The effects from Botox/Dysport will last approximately three to six months. As the muscle movement gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear. That’s when you know the area needs to be treated again.
What is a dermal filler?
Dermal Fillers are used in static lines or in areas where volume has been lost through the aging process. They can also be used for lip rejuvenation.
What fillers do you carry?
We presently work with Restylane, Juvéderm, Bellafill, and Radiesse dermal fillers.
How long does filler last?
There is a vast array of dermal fillers can last between 6 months to 5 years. Based on your goals, budget, and medical history, your Provider will help you choose the dermal filler that is best for you.
What is the difference between Botox and filler?
The primary difference between the two is that Botox reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. Botox is the better choice for dynamic wrinkles that occur when the face is in motion or making expression, as it will reduce their motion and visibility. Facial fillers, however, replace volume that is lost through the aging process by plumping and lifting the skin.
Can I go back to work after my injection? Will I be bruised?
There is always a chance of slight bruising for up to two weeks after an injection. Following your post-care instructions and using topical or capsule-form arnica can help with bruising.
SCLEROTHERAPY- SPIDER VEINS
WHICH ARE THE AREAS WHERE SPIDER VEINS CAN BE TREATED?
Spider veins located on face and legs can be removed with sclerotherapy and or laser (see AFFIRM above). Both sclerotherapy and laser therapy require 3-6 treatments.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
There is a risk of infection and patients are screened carefully before this treatment and especially before the injectable treatment.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness or “double chin.” We also use Kybella “off label” to reduce the fat deposits causing jowls. Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid. It is synthetic but identical to a fat dissolving product made by our gall bladder to help break down fat. Kybella is not a treatment for lax or excess skin, vertical bands or horizontal lines on the neck.
It takes a minimum of 2 treatments to appreciate any results. Most patients will achieve their desired results within 3 months after their 3rd or 4th treatment though up to 6 treatments may be administered. Treatments are performed 4 to 8 weeks apart. It is possible that you will not see improvement despite multiple treatments due to your underlying anatomy, skin tone or other factors.
The improvement in the submental area is very long lasting and retreatment is not expected. Normal aging changes in the skin and other tissues of the neck will continue to occur, however. Though the treated fat cells are removed and replaced by collagen, a small amount is left behind. If you gain a great deal of weight, the remaining fat cells may expand giving a full appearance.
All patients should expect swelling in the treated area. This is more pronounced when treating the submental area, but less dramatic when treating jowls. This is most dramatic in the first 3 days after the first procedure. Subsequent treatments generally result in significantly less swelling. Swelling will steadily decrease but may still be noticeable at a month post-treatment. Tenderness, discomfort, and numbness in the treated area is very common and can last weeks. Redness and firmness in the area are also common. Bruising is possible and will generally resolve in a week.
HydraFacial treatments are a superior method for improving the skin’s appearance where common signs of aging are noticeable. Cosmetic concerns that can be corrected with this rejuvenating treatment include:

Our expert team at Renew Aesthetics in Fort Walton Beach FL offers you a gentle yet effective alternative for addressing clogged pores while treating your skin with potent solutions intended to moisturize, protect, and revitalize your skin.
We apply a patented, spiral type treatment tip using vortex technology to the skin.

This mixture effectively and completely cleans pores without squeezing or pressing the skin.
Additional benefits include:
Dermaplaning is a highly safe, efficient physical exfoliation procedure used to take away dry, dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). This procedure enhances the health and appearance of the skin. It is also a great add on prior to a peel or botox.
Peels address the visible skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture. Peels also address skin tone unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes. Renew Aesthetics offers a range of different strength chemical peels that can be selected to provide the optimum treatment.
We offer medical grade chemical peels. Medical grade chemical peels are medically prescribed and pharmaceutically prepared compounds that are applied on the skin and left a certain amount of time. The reaction of the skin to the compound is observed by the doctor and when the desired topical effect is reached the peel is removed. It is used to remove superficial layers and it improves the texture and radiance of the skin.
EmSculpt® is a revolutionary treatment that addresses both body fat and muscle strengthening! Electromagnetic technology is used to stimulate your muscles to rapidly contract.

Vanquish has been approved by the FDA for circumferential reduction. It uses multipolar radio frequency (RF) energy to shrink the fat between the skin and the underlying muscle.
The device has a very large spot size, one of the largest available in the cosmetic industry. As a result it can treat a large area in a short time, for example, it can treat the abdomen and flanks in one go. Vanquish is virtually painless and most patients only feel a warm sensation during the procedure.
The applicator for the Vanquish device is placed over the treatment area and creates a radio field, but does not touch the body. It is this radio field that generates the heat. Vanquish emits major points of multi-polar radiofrequency that target the fat. The fat cells absorb the heat generated, but the surrounding cells are not damaged in any way. The heat also results in skin tightening.
Treatment lasts for about 30 minutes per session. It usually requires 4 treatments to achieve a significant reduction in fat cells.
Vanquish is specially designed to deal with those isolated pockets of fat that you feel self-conscious about. It is commonly used in the abdominal area and generally results in measurable fat reduction. Vanquish can also be used on the upper arms, love handles and the upper thighs.
The treatments for Vanquish are usually done weekly over a period of 4-6 weeks. Most people notice a reduction in circumference during the second week of treatment and more improvements are seen as the treatments progress.
Results don’t always show quickly, but individuals with larger pockets of fat tend to see results sooner. On the other hand, results may take a longer time to show for people with smaller areas of fat to lose.
The results with Vanquish are not immediate, as it does take some time for the fat cells to be flushed from the system. Clients are therefore advised to drink plenty of water after treatment, to help with the process, as the body continues to eliminate dead fat cells. Final results can take up to 8 weeks to be seen.
There are much fewer risks associated with Vanquish than with some of the other non-invasive body contouring treatments. The device does not touch the skin, and this ensures that treatment is consistent. Most patients experience no side-effects with Vanquish.
There are however, some restrictions regarding Vanquish treatment. It is not recommended for people with metal implants, therefore if you have surgical staples or screws, Vanquish is not considered a safe treatment for you.
