BOTOX ® & XEOMIN® [NEUROMODULATORS]
Neuromoduilators can successfully treat fine lines and wrinkles, caused by repetitive muscle movement. When the muscles in our faces are used over and over, wrinkles begin to form. Combine that with the natural loss of the skin's elasticity, and the signs of aging can make us look much older than we feel. With noticeable improvement of fine lines and wrinkles, without surgery or recovery time, explore how you can let La Therapie help you turn back the signs of aging.
BENEFITS OF NEUROMULATORS:
Reduce wrinkles without surgery.
Help improve underlying muscles, (beyond what facial peels are able to address).
Temporarily minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
Provide fast and dramatic results.
*Individual results may vary.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Several tiny injections of the medication are administered directly into the muscle areas you wish to treat. The location of the injections will be determined by examining your ability to move certain muscles in the selected area. The location, size, and use of the muscles vary among individuals, which will be evaluated during your appointment. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Most patients see an improvement within 5-10 days. The efficacy of anti-wrinkle injectables will usually last between 12 and 16 weeks. Neurotoxins are safe for all skin types and ethnicities.
In addition to treating the muscles in the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes, neuromodulators can treat many areas on the body including:
Jawline (Nefertiti Lift)
Lines on Neck
Upper lip wrinkles
Platysmal Bands (Neck bands)
Masseters (jaw muscle)

Dermal fillers are created from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a natural component of healthy human tissue. An important structural building block in the skin, HA can stimulate the body's production of collagen, which helps create healthy dermal and epidermal tissue. Additionally, Hyaluronic Acid draws water from the body to the treated area, providing volume to the skin which helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. There are many types of fillers, each addressing a different issue or area of the face. La Therapie's nurse injector is highly trained with advanced certification in injectables, knowing the exact amount of the ideal product to create beautiful, natural looking results.
La Therapie offers the following types of fillers:
Voluma - Adds volume in the cheeks to help correct age related volume loss. This injectable gel lifts, re-inflates, and contours the cheeks.
Vollure - An injectable gel used to correct facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds). This is the most recent Allergan injectable. It creates a natural look, when used around the mouth to gently re-volumize this area.
Volbella - An injectable gel used for gentle lip augmentation and smoothing lines around the mouth.
Juvederm Plus XC - Used to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).
Restylane Lyft - Filler for moderate to severe facial folds and volume loss.
Restylane - Used in mid-to-deep dermis to augment facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm Ultra XC - Used to inject lips for lip augmentation and correction of perioral lines (lines around the mouth).
Belotero - Used to soften wrinkles in the nasolabial folds.
Radiesse - Used to correct volume loss in the dorsum of the hands.
*Some dermal fillers contain the numbing agent, lidocaine. Please ask your provider if you have questions about lidocaine.

The Non-surgical Solution to say goodbye to a Double Chin
The aging process just does not seem fair, especially when it comes to the dreaded double chin. Submental fat can begin to accumulate, creating a fat pocket under the chin. There is no predicting who will develop submental fat, as weight is not alway an indicator. La Therapie Spa's Expert Nurse Injector has extensive training in helping patients rediscover a more youthful appearance by eliminating submental fat under the chin. Kybella treatment is an alternative to liposuction and surgery.
During the non-invasive treatment, several tiny, targeted injections of deoxycholic acid are administered. Over several weeks, the medication breaks down fat by destroying the cell membrane. The fat is then metabolized and eliminated as waste, permanently removing fats cells. Most patients require a series of two treatments for maximum results. The procedure is very tolerable, as a topical lidocaine is applied before the injections. Most patients resume their normal daily routine following the procedure.
