Injectables and fillers are an alternative to cosmetic surgery that treat the lines and wrinkles associated with aging. Through its skin care division, Alchemï Aesthetic Clinic, The Reid Clinic offers a variety of options that will have you looking your best. Dr. Reid’s training as both an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist and facial plastic surgeon has given her greater insight into her patient’s internal and external problem areas. Her skin care practice is truly unique, as you will receive the best medical and aesthetic care available.
What kinds of injectables do you provide?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the product most used in our clinic. It is a prescription medication injected into muscles to improve moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows of individuals 18 to 65 years old. BOTOX® works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and most patients are in and out of our office without downtime. Within days, you will see a marked improvement and lines continue to improve for up to 30 days. Call Alchemï Aesthetic Clinic at The Reid Clinic for a consultation.
As you age, the cheek area can lose volume, causing them to flatten out and the skin to droop and sag. Using JUVÉDERM® XC, an injectable gel that is specially formulated with an anesthetic to improve comfort during treatment, Dr. Reid corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC improve your appearance by lifting and adding volume to correct facial wrinkles and folds in the skin. Alchemï Aesthetic Clinic at The Reid Clinic can also provide instant, visible results and a more youthful face with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, which instantly adds volume to the cheek area to give a subtle lift, and restores contour for a younger profile. Call Alchemï Aesthetic Clinic at The Reid Clinic for a consultation.
How long do treatment results normally last?
BOTOX® lasts up to four months and JUVÉDERM® XC fillers last anywhere from four months to one year. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC fillers can last even longer when done in combination with BOTOX®. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the first injectable hyaluronic gel, approved by the FDA, to provide contour enhancements for up to two years in patients over the age of 21.
Who is a good candidate for these treatments?
All patients need a consultation to be treated at our clinic. Depending on the procedure you are interested in, patients must be at least 18 or 21 years old to be considered. For some treatments, patients cannot be older than 65. Call Alchemï Aesthetic Clinic at The Reid Clinic for a consultation.
