Neurtoxins & Dermal Fillers

The facial aging process varies from person to person.  The main causes are changes in bone density, loss or displacement of fat and the break down of collagen and elastin.

Taking a preventative approach that incudes minimally invasive facial cosmetic treatments is a way to lessen the signs of aging and avoid or delay surgery.  Injectables are a great way to improve the signs of aging and/or enhance your natural features.

Why About Face Aesthetics & Skincare, LLC
of Greeneville & Norton

Sue Cressel, NP, and Owner of About Face Aesthetics & Skincare, LLC has 15 years of injecting experience. Highly skilled, Sue listens to her clients to fully understand their needs and lifestyle and determines the best way to treat the signs of aging (facial lines and volume loss). Usually this will be with a combination of injectable solutions such as Botox Cosmetic®, Xeomin®, Dysport® and a family of dermal fillers.

Today’s injectable menu offers a wide array of same-day procedures to not only address the wrinkles themselves but also to either relax the muscles that cause expression lines or to fill, sculpt and contour features.  By adding volume, we can soften lines, folds and wrinkles as well as add volume to the lips.

The most common neurotoxins include Botox, Dysport and Xeomin, all of which are frequently used at About Face.   These types of injectables are used to block targeted nerves from activating the facial muscles. Over time, repeated contractions of facial muscles can contribute to the formation of wrinkles and lines in the forehead, around the eyes, on the nose and neck, and near the mouth and chin.  Botox, Dysport and Xeomin temporarily relax the muscles causing the wrinkling leaving a smoother, refreshed appearance.

Beyond cosmetic purposes, we also sometimes treat migraines and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) with these injectables.

Hyaluronic acid helps to keep the skin hydrated, supple, and youthful looking.  Aging and sun damage reduce the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in the skin, and once depleted, there is volume loss resulting in sagging and folds. Injectable dermal fillers tailored to a specific application and area can restore this lost volume and provide a more youthful appearance.

Sometimes there is not a problem area but a desired enhancement. This is particularly true in the lips.  Your injector should have a level of skill and experience so that the client receives full, evenly enhanced lips that reflect symmetry.  Our hyaluronic dermal filler procedures include Juvéderm, Restylane® and Belotero Balance® injectables, which offer a variety of different attributes that can accommodate your specific skin needs and desired  outcome.

Sue is also skilled in the use of Radiesse® and Bellafill dermal fillers.

It’s more important than ever when receiving these types of treatments to have an experienced injector. Sue Cressel has done many of these procedures hundreds of times.

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable for  adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called “double chin.” The active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Typically a series of 2 3 treatments are needed 6 weeks apart.

Bellafill is the only dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth long term to help maintain your youthful appearance for up to 5 years. Bellafill is not included with our other   dermal fillers because it is not a hyaluronic filler.  Bellafill’s tiny, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended within a base of smooth collagen gel. Once injected, the collagen gel immediately reduces the look of smile lines. Over time, your body uses the microspheres in Bellafill to create a “scaffold” onto which your own natural collagen can develop. This collagen forms a foundation that adds volume to wrinkles, reducing their appearance – and giving you natural-looking results that feel soft and smooth for up to 5 years.

Only the most skilled injectors offer Bellafill.
