Restylane Before and After

Restylane, an Alternative to Botox

We are going to talk about 2 serums and where they have come from, plus how they are used and why. Then we will reveal two wrinkle reduction substances that are most commonly used today instead of Botox.

People have been searching for a cure for wrinkles for centuries.....long before the FDA approved using Botox between the eyes for wrinkle reduction in 2002. They are still searching. Botox wasn't the finish line in the race of the human race to stay looking young long past the time that they are young.

Serums have been developed that contain plant extract and animal oil for the purpose of, if not replacing Botox injections, at least prolonging the effects of those injections. Two of the most popular of these serums are Emu oil and tea extractions.

There are two other injectable wrinkle reduction substances that are in use today:

The first is Collagen. The body has collagen naturally but we lose it as we age. Doctors use a series of collagen injections to raise the area being treated and smooth wrinkles and creases. The injections are done using a very fine needle. A local anesthetic is usually mixed with the collagen but it is rare for a patient to require additional pain medication.

People who are allergic to beef or beef products should not receive collagen injections because of a possible allergic reaction. The results of collagen injections usually last about six months. The area must then be retreated.

The other is Restylane. This is the newest wrinkle filler on the market. Although it is derived from hyaluronic acid, as is collagen, it is not animal based so there is rarely an allergic concern.

Restylane can be used in ways that neither Botox nor collagen can be used. As well as being used to fill in wrinkles and creases in the face, Restylane can be used to augment the chin, cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and to fill out other parts of the body. Restylane can last up to a year.

Patient Testimonials
(Letters from a patient who received a cosmetic treatment)

Dear Dr. Crutchfield,

I can not thank you enough for all of the hard work and time you devoted last week to making me look better! I really appreciate everything that you have done. You have made me feel like "25" again - (I wish)!

I look forward to the next appointment. Many, many thanks, again!

Faith S.

I have 3 homes; New York, Atlanta and Los Angeles. I have had cosmetic dermatology treatments in all three areas and I specifically fly to see Dr. Crutchfield in Eagan, Minnesota because he is absolutely the best cosmetic dermatologist I have ever encountered. He is more than a physician; he is an artist who constantly strives for perfection in his craft. I have sent several friends, including my sister, to see him and, to a person, they have all been extremely satisfied.

I appreciate your generosity and the great care I've received from you. You've made a patient for life and I recommend you to all my friends.

Thanks again!
