Nonsurgical Facial Aesthetics Deliver A Dramatically More Youthful Look

Vein Centers for Excellence of Greenville is proud to offer the latest nonsurgical facial skin rejuvenation treatments, including the dermal fillers Restylane™ and Perlane™, and Dysport (Botulinum toxin A).

Dermal filler injections (Restylane, Perlane)

Dermal fillers are used to increase tissue volume, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin’s overall contour. Dermal fillers are used to literally fill skin that has lost tissue volume. They are made of natural ingredients such as calcium and hyaluronic acid. The most common areas where filler is used are:

  • Nasal Labial folds – the lines from the corners of your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Marionette Lines – lines from the corners of your mouth that run toward your chin
  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Facial wrinkles

About Restylane™®

Restylane™® is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel that closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the body. By replenishing nature’s supply of hyaluronic acid, Restylane® revitalizes and plumps up the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and giving a softer look.

Restylane™® gels are injected under the skin, directly adding volume to either soften the signs of aging or enhance your features. The procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes, and benefits can be seen immediately.

About Perlane™®

Just like Restylane, Perlane adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Like Restylane, Perlane is a clear gel hyaluronic acid that is formulated to add volume. Perlane is different because the gel particles are larger than those in Restylane. This makes Perlane a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin.

About Dysport (Botulinum toxin A)

Dysport is an injectable used for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles in the face – particularly vertical frown lines between the brows. Frown lines happen because these muscles, which control facial expression, are used very frequently. After DYSPORT™ is injected into these muscles, it stops the tightening for up to 4 months.

DYSPORT offers:

  • Safe and effective treatment of many types of wrinkles
  • Quick procedure with no recovery time needed
  • Quick clinical results
  • Ideal complement to laser skin resurfacing or dermal fillers

Dysport is very similar to Botox. However, some studies have shown that Dysport acts faster and lasts longer than Botox. Dysport has been successfully used in Europe since the early 1990’s, and has been FDA approved in the US since April 2009.

I am so happy that I have no more tired legs or pain. Gradually I have seen my legs change and look beautiful. Dr. Traurig and his staff were wonderful!
