The field of cosmetic injectables has rapidly grown since their introduction in the early 1980’s. At Advanced Skin and Body Solutions, you can rest assured that you are being treated with the most current techniques to ensure beautiful and safe results.
Our injectors, Dr. Jodie Reinertson, MD and Kevan Petterson, RN, BSN, join us from Cosmedic Skincare in Seattle. They are experts in facial assessment. With their extensive product knowledge, they can design a personalized plan for you. Oftentimes, multiple sessions are needed over the year to make incremental changes that still leave you feeling like yourself, only more rested and vibrant.
Because of this tailored approach to facial aesthetics, it is imperative that you see Dr. Reinertson and Kevan for a complimentary consultation. Find out how botox and dermal fillers can be used to find a more vibrant and younger looking you today and schedule a complimentary consultation.
There is not a more cost effective way to rapidly see a younger and more vibrant you then Botox Cosmetic. Botox Cosmetic works by predictably and selectively weakening muscle movement in specific muscles of the face. After about 1 to 2 weeks, you are left with a refreshed and more rested appearance with less visible wrinkles. The effects of Botox Cosmetic have a mean duration of about 3 – 4 months, so for best results, it’s important (but not necessary) to get this treatment about 3 – 4 times per year. The injections do not hurt as both injectors use a very small 33g needle to administer the medication. Patients often say “was that it?” after their first treatment is over. As always, both Dr. Reinertson and Kevan stand by their work and a two-week follow-up is encouraged (especially after a patient’s first visit) to assess and refine their results.
Areas Commonly Treated by Botox:
The furrow or “11’s”
The tail of the eyebrow to produce a tasteful lift
Bunny lines on the nose
Facial slimming by injecting bulky Masseters
The corners of the mouth for less of a frown
The chin to combat a dimpled or “orange peel” texture
The neck: to tighten and lift. Often called the “Nefertiti Lift”
Since the introduction of Bovine Collagen in 1981, the field of facial fillers has exploded. Now, there are hundreds around the world, so it is important you chose an injector with a vast amount of product knowledge and uses the safest and most current techniques. At Advanced Skin and Body Solutions, we only use non-permanent fillers due to their safety profile. We also commonly use a device called a micro-cannula, a blunt tipped device that reduces side effects like bruising.
Dr. Reinertson and Kevan are industry leaders and have recently been ranked within the Top 100 accounts with Allergen. It is their mission to tailor dermal fillers to their patient’s unique face. Oftentimes, multiple visits are the way they choose to achieve this tailored and natural appearance. They believe that small incremental changes in the face leave a person looking their most natural and beautiful. During a consultation with them, they will outline a patient’s top priorities based on what they see and what the patient sees. Both Dr. Reinertson and Kevan believe it is important to forge a relationship between their patients and themselves in order to increase patient satisfaction with their treatments.
Fillers can be used in a variety of ways to enhance a patient’s appearance. The important part to remember is everyone’s face is unique. What will make one person look amazing will make another person look unnatural that is why both Dr. Reinertson and Kevan will never use a “cookie-cutter” approach to achieve their results.
