Restylane® and Juvederm®
What are Restylane and Juvederm?
Restylane and Juvederm are injectable gels made primarily of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the skin. They are administered to replace volume and fill areas of mild to moderate volume loss of the face due to the natural process of aging and weight loss. They are both FDA-approved to fill the lines of the face around the mouth, nose, and lips, often referred to as "marionette lines" or "parentheses." Other areas of the face can be treated off-label.
How are Restylane and Juvederm administered?
Both products are injected into the dermis of the skin using a precise, small bore needle. Upon initial consultation, Dr. Campbell will work with you to help determine which areas of the face would respond best to treatment and how many syringes might be needed. For pain prevention/relief, a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin for several minutes before the procedure, and both Restylane and Juvederm contain another numbing agent to make sure your treatment is comfortable.
How long does it take to see results? How long do results last?
Most people notice desired changes to the treated areas immediately. There may be some swelling which can last up to 72 hours but usually dissipates within 24 hours. Duration of results can vary from individual to individual and area to area, but improvements commonly last 6-12 months and decrease gradually over time.
What are the costs of Restylane and Juvederm and are treatments covered by insurance?
Since these are elective cosmetic procedures, insurance does not cover treatment costs. The cost can vary based on the amount of product needed, which is different from person to person. Dr. Campbell and her staff will help tailor a specific treatment plan for each patient and aid in determining cost before any injections are performed.
What is the difference between Injectables?
While some patients prefer one agent over another, injectables work in an almost identical manner and are both quite effective. If effectiveness of one of the agents starts to diminish over time, it is often useful to switch to the other to regain the same results. Again, a board certified dermatologist will help guide to the optimal product for use based during your consultation.
DYSPORT & BOTOX
Facts About Frown Lines
Frown lines are caused by a number of factors, and not always caused by age.
Although age is a factor, over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, during frowning or squinting, and this repeated movement forms lines between the eyebrows.
How soon will I notice results?
Usually within 2-5 days, though full results may take a few days longer.
How long do the results of Dysport and Botox last?
Depending on the individual, these agents typically last three to six months.
Can Botox and Dysport be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)?
Yes. This is most commonly performed in the underarm area, although can also be done on the palms and soles. This treatment is also offered at Cypress Dermatology.
Are Dysport and Botox treatments covered by insurance?
Since they are considered elective, insurance does not cover cosmetic Dysport or Botox injections. Please visit us at Cypress Dermatology for a consultation and to discuss cost and payment options.
What are Dysport and Botox and how do they work?
Dysport and Botox are injectable medications (both forms of botulinum toxin) that have been proven safe in clinical trials and are used to treat facial lines that result from movements of the muscles of facial expression. They work by paralyzing the muscle groups that are specifically targeted by the treating physician. When a muscle group can no longer work, the muscles in the area relax and lines soften. Both Dysport and Botox are offered as treatments at Cypress Dermatology.
Where/How are Dysport/Botox injected?
Injections are performed with a very small needle, usually into the area between the eyebrows (glabella), crow's feet, forehead, and neck (off-label use). There is usually minimal pain associated and typically no anesthesia is required. Treatment usually takes less than five minutes.
What is the difference between Dysport and Botox?
While some patients prefer one agent over another, Dysport and Botox work in an almost identical manner and are both quite effective. They are both forms of botulinum toxin and can be used to treat the same areas. If effectiveness of one of the agents starts to diminish over time, it is often useful to switch to the other to regain the same results.
COSMETIC LASER TREATMENT
Cutera® Excel V
The Cutera Excel V is the latest in laser technology combining the power and precision of both the 532 nm KTP and 1064 nm Nd:YAG lasers. This laser offers the capability of treating a wide range of vascular, age-related, and pigmentary conditions and the enhanced healing and recovery time that goes along with its advanced cooling system.
What types of vascular lesions are treated with the Excel V?
Port wine stains
Telangiectasias (fine blood vessels)
Vessels associated with facial rosacea
How does it work?
The Excel V works by delivering controlled pulses of light energy causing the blood in the targeted vessels to clot together, eventually resulting in its destruction and disappearance. This is safe and does not cause an interruption of blood flow to the area as blood is redirected to deeper vessels.
Are treatments painful?
Patients usually experience a mild stinging sensation when an area is being treated. Generally, no pain medications are required and the sensation only lasts a few seconds.
How many treatments will I need?
Most small vessels will resolve after 3-5 treatments, although some patients may experience success after only 1 or 2 treatments. The number of sessions that will be required depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being targeted. Every patient is different, and Dr. Campbell will examine you in consultation to help determine how many treatments will likely be needed and what kind of results might be expected. Treatments are generally performed every 4 weeks.
What are possible side effects?
Many patients report no side effects, but those most commonly reported are mild redness and minimal swelling of the skin of the treated area. These effects typically last about 48-72 hours.
When can I expect to see results?
Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins show significant improvement within 8-12 weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear. To remove them these new veins will need treatment as well.
Cutera’s Excel V laser platform includes a patented procedure known as Laser Genesis. This microsecond 1064 nm treatment is an excellent treatment option for diffuse redness, rosacea, and scars (including hypertrophic and keloid scars), as well as being an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment. Think of it as a "laser facial." It works quickly to reduce redness while minimizing scars and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. Ask about the Laser Genesis procedure if you struggle with overall redness or have an upcoming event. We know you would love to have that "glow!"
Other Conditions Treated by the Excel V:
Unwanted freckles and blotchy pigment
Benign skin growths such as seborrheic keratosis
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime.
The Non-invasive Lift
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look from your brow to your chest!
Focused Ultrasound. No Surgery.
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as effective in clinical studies* and in over a million treatments worldwide.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.

Kybella is an injectable formulation of purified deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. In its naturally occurring state deoxycholic acid helps in breaking down dietary fat for absorption. Kybella is a nonsurgical treatment to help eliminate fat under the chin, or a "double chin."
Who is eligible to receive a Kybella treatment?
If you can pinch the skin underneath your chin area and can feel fat under the skin, then you may be a candidate for Kybella.
How are Kybella treatments performed?
Kybella is administered by tiny injections under the skin in the submental (under the chin) area. Each treatment takes about 15-20 minutes. Typically numbing injections and ice are used to relieve the pain of injections.
How long do results of Kybella treatments last?
You may need one or several treatments with Kybella depending on how much fat under the chin you have. Once results are achieved, however, the results are permanent. Dr. Campbell will see you in consultation prior to performing Kybella injections to evaluate you carefully and help determine the best and safest approach to eliminating fat under your chin.
