Examples of our work
The goal of Botox and Xeomin is to relax the muscles of expression to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The most common areas treated are between the eyes (picture 1), forehead (picture 2&3), and around the eyes (picture 4). However, there are multiple other locations such as smile lines, nose lines, jawline slimming (Picture 5), and neck. It typically takes about 7 days to see the effects of the treatment and it can last from 3 to 4 months. As with any aesthetic procedure, results will very from client to client.
(Picture 1&2) As you can see in both pictures there is general improvement in the overall volume of the lips. The fine lines/wrinkles of the upper lip and body of the lips are smoother and less pronounced. The borders of the lips are accentuated as well giving a more youthful appearance. The changes are subtle but natural appearing.
(Picture 3&4) The treated side and untreated side are labeled in these pictures. You can notice an improvement of the volume and body of the cheeks. This improved the overall structure of the midface and does result in an improvement of the fine lines/wrinkles of the lower face having a slight upward pulling affect on the lower face.
(Picture 5) Under the eyes are one of the earliest areas to show aging. In some cases, the hollows under the eyes can be exaggerated by genetics or after significant weight loss giving the face a more tired appearance. Fillers can be placed in these hollows or troughs to reduce the depth and shadowing effect. This picture shows subtle changes but you can see on the left (untreated) that there is a slight hallow with a darker shadow but that is resolved after treatment (on the right).
(Picture 6) This is the result of jawline shaping. The labeled untreated side on the left shows a significant area of tapering/hollowing with a sagging jawline. However, the treated side on the right side has a nice uniform “V” shape without a hollow or sagging jawline. This gives the overall appearance of the face a much more refreshed and youthful look.
You are worth it
The goal of dermal filler treatment is to restore the lost space primarily in the compartments of the face. As we age, these compartments that are full of fat, muscle, and bone begin to break down. Unfortunately, then gravity pulls this loose tissue down forming static fine lines and wrinkles. We are able to apply fillers to these areas of volume loss creating a more full and youthful appearance. The results are immediate and last anywhere from 6-24 months depending on the product used. Areas commonly treated are smile lines, under the eyes, nose lines, lips, cheeks, and jawline. However, we also use fillers for liquid nose jobs, deep wrinkles between the eyes, temples, neck, and even the hands.
You may also notice that there is very little to no bruising or swelling with these before and after pictures despite being taken the same day. The reason is that at JAGMedical we use the most advance techniques that essentially eliminate pain and bruising. Most of our techniques only require a single needle stick for proper results. Some of our clients receive treatments and return to work the same day as there is no down time. As with any aesthetic procedure, results will very from client to client.
(Picture 1) This picture shows the results of microneedling after 3 treatments. You can see an overall improvement in skin texture and color. The small pox marks are smoothed out, the dark spots have been faded (more dramatic in the hyperpigmented spots between the eyes), and the skin is tighter more youthful appearing.
To maintain your beauty
Microneedling therapy is used to induce the body’s own mechanism of producing collagen so it is also called Collagen Induction Therapy. There are usually 10 or more very small needles at the end of a treatment pen that create “microinjury” to the skin. These small injuries promote a healing cascade that is more organized than in typical skin injuries. During this process, fibroblasts are stimulated to produce collagen that gives the skin a more youthful appearance. Microneedling therapy combats aging on multiple levels as it smooth fines lines of the face and neck, dark spots/sun spots (ie hyperpigmentation), pore size, and acne scars. This treatment is used mostly as a maintenance therapy and consists of 3-4 monthly treatments a year. Medical microneedling is clinically different from cosmetic microneedling that can be purchased and performed at home as it typically treats deeper in the skin layer, is performed at a low frequency, and has superior results. As with any aesthetic procedure, results will very from client to client.
Here at JAGMedical Cosmetics we use the only FDA approved microneedling device the SkinPen. We do this to ensure that our clients get the best treatment that has been medically researched to show improvement and safety versus other devices available on the market.
The first picture shows results of FGF treatment once a week for 8 weeks. Top left is the before, top right is at 4 weeks, bottom left is 6 weeks, and bottom right is 8 weeks. For each client treatment cost and frequency will vary based on area treated. The solution is usually placed using a microneedling device.
The second and third picture shows a female with a small area of thinning. After 1 treatment of FGF she had improvement in hair volume.
PRP and FGF
The factors of youth
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment is achieved by drawing a small amount of blood from the client and isolating the platelets. This isolate consists of multiple growth factors along with a small concentration of stem cells. PRP is used several medically indicated cases such as joint injections but also has benefits in aesthetic medicine. It has significant medical research showing improvement in hair restoration and is currently being used as an adjunct with microneedling to reveal even a greater benefit in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Because it is taken directly from the client the risk of rejection or other complications are minimized. Approximately 3-4 monthly treatments are recommended and usually performed with microneedling to get the best results. As with any aesthetic procedure, results will very from client to client..
FGF (Fibroblast Growth Factor) is a relatively new therapy in the treatment of hair loss. This human naturally occurring hormone can be applied into the dermal areas of thinning hair. Studies have show, that this treatment has been medically shown to improve hair width and growth up to a year out in most cases. Treatments are variable based on level of hair loss so a complete assessment prior to treatment is required. As with any aesthetic procedure, results will very from client to client.
