WHAT SIGNS OF AGING DO INJECTABLES TREAT?
Injectable treatments are formulated to treat some of the most common signs of aging. All of our treatments will help you turn back the clock and reveal the firm, smooth skin of your younger days. These treatments are a great way to achieve noticeable results without the need for invasive surgeries. Our injectable treatments can help to address all of the following signs of aging:
Forehead or worry lines
Loss of volume in lips
Marionette lines between the mouth and chin
Parentheses lines around the mouth and nose
WHAT TYPES OF AESTHETIC NEUROTOXINS DO WE OFFER?
You may be wondering what aesthetic neurotoxins are. Don’t let the complicated name fool you. These are simply injectable treatments that relax the muscles. Neurotoxins are substances that block muscular nerve signals, inhibiting their ability to contract. When the muscles are unable to contract, it results in the diminishing of fine lines and wrinkles in the affected area. This is how aesthetic neurotoxins are used to help reduce the signs of aging. Our neurotoxin treatments can be used to treat the forehead, in between the eyes, and areas around the mouth. We provide three main injectable neurotoxin treatments, which include:
This treatment is used to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles. You can expect results to last anywhere from three to six months.
Jeuveau is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used in adults for a short period of time (temporary) to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).
Dysport® treatments allow you to improve the appearance of wrinkles without changing the look of your entire face or affecting the ability to make facial expressions.
Xeomin was FDA-approved in 2010 to treat glabellar lines, or fine lines. Xeomin can help temporarily get rid of frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
PLUMP FACIAL FEATURES WITH INJECTABLE FILLERS
As we age, it’s common to lose the natural plumpness and elasticity of your more youthful days. This can cause wrinkles and an overall sagging appearance that often makes individuals look older than they are. At Brunswick Medical Aesthetics, we offer a variety of face filler treatments to help remedy this situation, and help you find the right treatment to achieve your desired results. We offer the following filler treatment lines:
NOW OFFERING VI PEELS AND SKIN CARE from Vitality Institute!
Chemical peeling, or chemexfoliation has been a part of clinical dermatology for centuries. From its early inception, aesthetic benefits to patients were known with an ability to improve texture and reduce freckling, melasma, and acne. Chemical Peels remove the outer layers of skin to enhance the appearance as well as improve its functionality. They create controlled damage to the skin, exfoliate dead skin cells, stimulate cell renewal, and regenerate of the supportive dermal structures. Chemical Peels are classified based on their depth of penetration, from very superficial (stratum corneum) to deep (reticular dermis). The depth of penetration is based on the type(s) of peeling agents as well as their percentages. In addition, the acid pH, application technique, quantity applied, skin preparation, and skin type also affect how deep the chemical peel will penetrate. VI peels are a medium depth peel. Patients shouldn’t have to endure pain and discomfort in their journey towards a better appearance, which is why Vitality Institute has designed its VI Peel to be virtually painless, unlike other chemical peels. They also know that complicated applications and convoluted instructions distract from the process, so they make sure that their products are easy-to-use, with no need to pre-condition the skin. And when it comes to results, Vitality Institute’s products are absolutely unparalleled, producing healthy and lustrous skin in as little as 7 days. Patients even reap benefits that they weren’t expecting, since the VI Peel infuses the skin with essential vitamins to complement its exfoliating work.

SkinPen® Precision System MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP
How does microneedling work? It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.
Benefits of SkinPen:
Little Downtime: It is a perfect treatment for patients with a busy schedule.
Natural Recovery: SkinPen’s mechanical process is versatile and usable year-round.
Safe for all Skin Types: Clinically proven effective on all skin types, Fitzpatrick 1 – 6.
Comfortable: A light numbing cream may be used to minimize discomfort
When you have PRP with your microneedling treatment, you can increase your benefits. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma — a major component of your blood — contains numerous growth factors that can support and accelerate the healing process initiated by your microneedling treatment. If you choose to have a microneedling with PRP treatment, the provider will safely extract your blood at the practice and centrifuge it — spin it at high speeds — to separate the PRP from other blood proteins. Once separated, your provider will apply the PRP to your treatment area after microneedling. Your skin will absorb the PRP into its deeper layers, boosting your treatment.
