Botox® Injections and Dermal Filler Treatments
As we grow older, our faces start to show age in the form of lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, today there are affordable and virtually painless ways to look younger without surgery. NEOS MedSpa offers the most popular wrinkle solutions: Botox® injections, Restylane®, Radiesse® and Juvéderm™. Our experienced staff will help you decide which treatment is best for you. We offer free consultations in the greater Phoenix metro area.
What It Is
Botox® injections are something that you have probably heard of. It works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause your skin to wrinkle and furrow causing lines. Over one million people have been treated since it was approved by the FDA in 2002. Botox® is most the affordable and effective treatment for frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead creases.Botox® is also a very effective, non-surgical solution for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). It blocks the excess nerve impulses that trigger the unnecessary production of sweat on the hands, face, or upper body areas. Ask us about the advantages of Botox® injections over surgery.Restylane® may not be as familiar to you. It has been used to treat over 3 million people in over 70 countries. It is a completely natural substance called hyaluronic acid, dermal filler that binds with water molecules. This allows it to keep its shape for up to six months. What makes Restylane® unique is its completely non-animal formula – NASHA or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is completely compatible with human hyaluronic acid, unlike fat injections or bovine collagen injections. The treatments are virtually pain free and usually take less than an hour. You can return to work with results that appear almost immediately.Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).Radiesse® is the newest innovation in dermal fillers. Developed with safety and longevity in mind, it offers superior versatility for both cosmetic and reconstructive use without surgery. The unique composition of Radiesse® provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. This is because Radiesse® is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxyl apatite (CaHA) micro spheres. The micro spheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows, and this produces the desired long-term effect.
These treatments instantly smooth away folds and wrinkles. It is particularly effective for the lines that appear between your nose and the edges of our mouth as time passes. This treatment eliminates those lines to recreate a much more youthful appearance in your face.

DYSPORT™ is a simple, effective, non-surgical treatment that works by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead, thereby reducing and smoothing away frown-lines and wrinkles.DYSPORT™, approved by the FDA in April 2009, is effective in the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines in adults younger than 65 years of age.DYSPORT™t is supported by over a decade of clinical experience. DYSPORT™ was developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1990s to successfully treat a number of neurological and ophthalmic conditions. Since that time, with an increased understanding of the uses of DYSPORT™, thousands of treatments have been safely and effectively performed for a variety of conditions.For your DYSPORT™ treatment, call us today to set up an appointment!Dysport™ is the ‘next generation’ neuromuscular blocking agent working like BOTOX Cosmetic to reduce frown lines and wrinkles. Like BOTOX, Dysport (foremerly known as Reloxin) is also made from botulinim toxin and is administered the same way but may last 1 month longer than BOTOX saving patients time and money.Manufactured by Medicis Aesthetics, the distributers of Restylane and Perlane, Dysport has been used in over 2 million treatments worldwide in 27 countries. It was evaluated for safety and efficacy in robust clinical studies which included approximately 3,000 patients and 10,000 injections at more than 80 clinical study sites in the U.S. One clinical trial showed 93%-95% of participants noticed an improvement in the appearance of forehead wrinkles within seven days after treatment, and multiple treatments produced effects that lasted for more than 13 months.Dr. Eviatar is one of the only physicians in New York City to use Dysport and has recently been quoted in an article on WorldHealth.com.Here is an excerpt from the article:Medicis Aesthetics has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its new “wrinkler relaxer,” branded Dysport TM. According to the manufacturer claims, clinical studies and patient reports have shown that Dysport may last up to eight months compared to Botox, which typically lasts four to six months.This is particularly significant, as one of the primary complaints with Botox is its “staying power.” Patients often experience “injection fatigue” because they typically require four injections of Botox per year – an added expense many people are finding difficult to justify in today’s economy. As the manufacturer notes in a press release, with Dysport injections lasting longer, patients should only need half the amount of Botox treatments, reducing their costs. Moreover, Medicis Aesthetics claims that research has shown that Dysport “takes effect sooner, further saving patients time.”One of the first physicians to use Dysport is Joseph Eviatar, M.D., board certified Oculoplastic Surgeon at Chelsea Eye and Cosmetic Surgery Associates in New York City. “I am very excited about the introduction of Dysport as it possesses several unique properties that set it apart from Botox Cosmetic,” says Dr. Eviatar. “Since Dysport does act quicker and last longer, it is more important than ever to have an experienced medical professional administering the injection. They should be very experienced about facial anatomy and dilution procedures. It is exciting to be able to offer patients an alternative to Botox Cosmetic, especially those patients for whom Botox does not last.”Visit the FAQ page for more information, or view our Before and After Gallery.
