BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® are simple, safe, and effective treatments that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes, and thick bands in the neck.
BOTOX®, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® are injectable solutions of a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines between the brows to form over time. By temporarily blocking the nerve impulses, the muscles that cause these wrinkles relax, giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days you will see a noticeable improvement. Results typically last from 4 to 6 months and there is no downtime involved.
For some, Dysport works quicker than BOTOX for faster results. Dysport may also be used to treat broader areas with fewer injections. In addition, some people who use BOTOX repeatedly may become resistant to it but respond to Dysport. Our providers will help determine which treatment is best for you.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC provides versatility in contouring and volumizing superficial facial wrinkles and folds. With all the original benefits of JUVÉDERM, JUVÉDERM Ultra XC has been specifically formulated with lidocaine to reduce any pain and irritation that can come with receiving an injection. You can now get the smoothness you expect with the improved comfort you want.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
Wrinkles and loss of skin volume are a natural part of aging. Factors such as heredity, sun exposure, and lifestyle can accelerate the process.
Fortunately, dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus can plump deeper wrinkles, such as smile lines, creating a fuller, more youthful appearance. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is an injectable gel that is safe, effective, and long-lasting, with results lasting up to one year depending upon the areas treated. This quick in-office procedure produces immediate, natural-looking results.
JUVÉDERM Voluma® XC
JUVÉDERM Voluma® XC is the first dermal filler formulated with lidocaine that is FDA-approved to restore age-related volume changes in the cheeks. Unlike other fillers commonly used to treat the midface, Voluma XC contains hyaluronic acid, which enhances contour and creates a more youthful look.
Voluma XC works to sculpt and reverse aging by replenishing diminished hyaluronic acid in your skin, which can cause the skin to lose volume and structure. Voluma XC is injected into the skin for long-lasting facial fullness up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
Restylane® is a dermal filler that is used to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of aging facial skin. Restylane restores natural volume to your skin – correcting fine lines, creating fuller lips, and enhancing the shape of your cheeks or chin or even the hollows below your eyes.
Restylane treatments are quick, and the results will last 4-10 months depending upon the areas treated and the amount of motion in the area. Restylane is an immediate and safe way to attain a beautiful, more youthful-looking facial appearance.
Are your lips thinning or losing shape? Are you noticing an increase in vertical lines above your lips?
Try Restylane® Silk for instant, natural-looking results. As we age, our lips become thinner and lose their shape, and we develop lines above the lip. With its unique formulation of smaller gel particles, Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to gives patients a softer, more precise result for lips and surrounding areas. It is also ideal for filling in the “smoker lines” around the lips.
Perlane® is similar to Restylane in that it is a natural dermal filler that corrects moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds. It restores the skin’s contour by increasing volume in the tissue.
The difference between Restylane and Perlane is the size of the particle (Perlane contains more hyaluronic acid). This means that Perlane is better at filling in deep lines while Restylane is used in fine lines or in thin-skinned people. Results are immediate and can last up to a year.
Radiesse® is a wrinkle filler used to add volume and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, or the “smile lines” that extend from your nose to the corners of your mouth. The benefits of Radiesse continue by naturally stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.
A Non-Surgical Facelift for Younger-Looking Skin from the Inside Out
Traditional facelifts with surgery can certainly help you look years younger, but going under the knife for cosmetic surgery does not stop or slow the aging process and its effects on your face and neck. New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa offers a revolutionary alternative called the Vampire Facelift.
The Vampire Facelift is an effective treatment for wrinkles and fine lines, smile lines, marionette lines, and much more:
- Eyes - crow’s feet, eyebrow lines
- Scar treatment, including acne scars
- Chest and neck - Horizontal necklace lines
What makes the Vampire Facelift so amazing? PRP cosmetics, which uses specialized stem cells to heal and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out.
What are PRP Cosmetics?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. Platelets contain a growth factor and they occur naturally in your blood. Scientists engineered a way to create a highly concentrated platelet plasma solution that can be injected into the body. A high concentration of platelets signals the body to send stem cells, which are involved in healing. PRP therapy is used in various areas of medicine for its rapid healing power. In the aesthetic and cosmetic industry, PRP therapy is used to revitalize your skin with a PRP cosmetic facelift (Vampire Facelift).
What to Expect
First, one of our providers will draw a sample of your blood (about the amount for a standard lab test). Next, we place it into a centrifuge to spin at a very rapid rate, separating platelets from other components in the blood. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains the stem cells capable of creating new skin tissue.
Like hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected beneath the skin; however, PRP contains at least eight growth factors that continue working as powerful rejuvenating agents over an extended period of time. By activating these growth factors, your skin improves in three ways:
- New blood vessels form, resulting in a more youthful glow and skin color.
- New collagen forms, lifting your face and giving it a more youthful shape.
- As the growth factors work to build a new layer of skin just below the surface, the outermost layer of the skin, or epidermis, appears smoother.

- No downtime
