Valentine’s Day is coming up, and you want to look your best for your true love. Of course, you can revamp your wardrobe, redo your hair, or even change your makeup routine; but wouldn’t it be better if you can change your look down to the smallest details? This romantic holiday calls for a complete transformation—one that’s as natural and long-lasting as possible. Abadir Associates is here to tell you how to achieve the perfect Valentine’s Day look.

GIVE YOURSELF A LIFT (NON SURGICAL)!

The latest trend in injections are two products which, when injected into the upper area of the cheeks, usually along the cheekbones, not only replace some of the volume we all loose with age, but actually significantly LIFT!

These products are Restylane’s “LYFT” and Juvederm’s “VOLUMA”.   Very different from the original Restylane and Juvederm, they are more “robust” and able when injected in the appropriate sites, to actually give an immediate and noticeable lifting of the cheeks, thus improving laugh lines and the lower cheeks. Placement varies according to the particular patient. The amount of “filling” is not excessive (each syringe only contains 1cc—a fifth of a teaspoon—most patients use 1 or 2!).  However the effect is instant, pleasing, giving you a more youthful appearance. Give yourself the gift of Voluma or Lyft!

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin

These neuromodulators are all similar and contain botulin toxin Type A. When injected into a muscle, they weaken, or completely prevent, that muscle’s contraction. Where the muscle in causing the development of undesirable lines or expression, such as frowning, the result is aesthetically pleasing.

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are the only three FDA-approved neuromodulators, although more could soon be approved. Drs. Dale and Michelle Abadir have been injecting Botox for over 20 years and have vast experience.

Lesser known Dysport and Xeomin have similar actions. Dysport takes effect a little faster, and Xeomin has no protein. While this is usually insignificant, on rare occasions patients have developed antibodies to the proteins in Botox and Dysport. These antibodies destroy the product when injected, making it ineffective (the same way antibodies to disease-causing viruses and bacteria will kill them).

Drs. Dale and Michelle Abadir will discuss with you the various types of neuromodulators, benefits and likely duration (which varies depending on which muscles they are used in), and recommend the best for you!
