Injectables & Fillers
The Vanishing Vein offers Botox injections to patients throughout Framingham, Boston, Newton, Worcester, Cambridge, Lowell and Quincy, MA.
What is Botox?
Botox injections are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles through minimally invasive injections. These injections are made from botulinum toxin A, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several different uses. When injected into the skin, Botox can block the nerve muscles that are responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for a younger and more refreshed appearance.
To learn more about average Botox prices, please give us a call today. Our friendly and helpful staff would be happy to answer any additional question you have, as well as set up your initial consultation with Dr. Davison. We also recommend viewing some Botox before and after pictures prior to have the treatment, as this will give you more realistic expectations of your results.
How is Botox Administered?
Botox is a quick and simple procedure that is performed right here in our Framingham office. Dr. Davison is a certified Botox specialist, and he will administer the solution via a tiny needle through a series of injections into the muscle. There is no anesthesia required, no downtime, and you should begin to see results immediately.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?
If you are unhappy with crow’s feet, fine lines in the brow area, smile lines or other facial wrinkles, you may be a perfect candidate for Botox. Most patients are between the ages of 18 to 65. If you have sagging facial skin, Botox is not an appropriate treatment for that. Dr. Davison will discuss your goals with you during your initial consultation, and make a recommendation for a treatment plan that will yield the results you want.
What are Typical Botox Results?
After your Botox treatment, the appearance of your wrinkles begins to improve within 24 hours, with full results developing gradually over the next five days. Most patients achieve their desired results after just one injection, although additional treatment sessions may be required in the future. The results of Botox injections typically last up to four months, with some patients reporting results lasting up to a full year. Take a look at some Botox before and after pictures to see just how incredible the results can be.
What are Botox Costs?
Botox costs will be dependent upon your specific goals. So please give us a call today and we’d be happy to discuss average prices with you, or set up a consultation so you can meet with Dr. Davison in a one-on-one setting.
The Vanishing Vein offers Juvederm injections to patients throughout Framingham, Boston, Newton, Worcester, Cambridge, Lowell and Quincy, MA.
What is Juvederm?
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel is a safe, effective gel that restores volume to the skin and smoothes away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm is the first FDA-approved dermal filler proven safe and effective for persons of color. The Juvéderm gel is made of hyaluronic acid with a smooth consistency, allowing for easy injections and instant, natural-looking results. There is no pre-testing needed for this procedure.
Call us at your convenience to set up your consultation with Dr. Davison, or to discuss average Juvederm prices. And if you’re still unsure of the benefits of this filler, browse through some Juvederm before and after pictures to see the results with your own eyes.
What Does the Juvederm Procedure Entail?
Topical or injectable anesthesia may be used during this procedure to numb the treatment area and minimize any potential discomfort. Dr. Davison will then administer the Juvederm solution directly into the treatment area using a tiny needle. Results are apparent almost immediately, and your body will eventually absorb the Juvederm solution – typically within six to nine months.
What are the Benefits of Juvederm?
The results of Juvederm are visible right away and can usually last for up to a year, the longest results available from any hyaluronic acid product. While it is most commonly used to fill out facial wrinkles, such as crows’ feet, nasolabial folds, forehead wrinkles and lines around the mouth, it is also highly effective in plumping and enhancing areas that have lost volume over the years.
We encourage all patients to look through some Juvederm before and after pictures prior to electing this treatment, as it will give you a better idea of the results and more realistic expectations.
What are Juvederm Costs?
Juvederm prices are largely dependent upon what you are looking to treat, so they will vary from one patient to the next. Dr. Davison would be happy to sit down with you during your initial consultation and discuss your specific goals, so give us a call today and we’d be happy to schedule this for you.
Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of submental fullness, or a “double chin” in your lower face? You are not alone – in a recent study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, about 67 percent of men and women stated that they were bothered by the excess fat underneath their chins. Rather than endure the risk and invasiveness of liposuction, come to the Vanishing Vein for a safe and effective Kybella® injection.
Located in Framingham, Massachusetts, the Vanishing Vein is led by Dr. Brian Davison. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how Kybella® can improve the appearance of your lower face with no surgery or downtime.
What Causes Submental Fullness?
When the submental area underneath the chin accumulates excess fat, it is often difficult to target this cosmetic concern with diet and exercise alone. Submental fullness can be influenced by a wide range of factors, such as:
- Weight gain
- The natural aging process
Traditionally, invasive procedures such as liposuction have been the ideal option for restoring more attractive contours to this area, but Kybella® injections offer a less risky treatment with no disruption to your normal activities.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable treatment comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fatty tissues underneath the chin, the deoxycholic acid formulation permanently disables fat cells and prevents them from accumulating or storing fat in the future. The result is an elevated appearance underneath the chin for a more attractive jawline.
What are the Benefits of Kybella®?
- Quick, convenient treatments that are easy to schedule for even the busiest patients
- As deoxycholic acid is easily recognized and processed by the body, this treatment typically carries no serious side effects
- This permanent destruction of fat cells is long-lasting
- Most patients achieve visible results after two to four treatments, with a maximum of six treatments
- This treatment allows patient to immediately return to work and normal activities
- Aside from slight bruising, swelling, or redness at injection sites, there are no tell-tale signs that you have undergone cosmetic treatment
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
The best way to determine if Kybella® is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Davison and our medical team to have your individual condition evaluated. We will discuss several factors such as your health, medical history, treatment expectations and aesthetic goals to help you choose the treatment option that is best for you. We will also outline what you can expect as well as any other safety information that may be relevant to you.
Contact the Vanishing Vein today to schedule a consultation and find out how non-surgical Kybella® injections can improve the contours of your lower chin and improve your overall facial profile.
The Vanishing Vein offers Perlane injections to patients throughout Framingham, Boston, Newton, Worcester, Cambridge, Lowell and Quincy, MA.
What is Perlane?
Created by the makers of Restylane, Perlane is a dermal filler that works to augment lips, smooth out facial lines and improve the look of scars. This FDA-approved injectable features a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid than other fillers on the market, creating longer-lasting results.
To learn more about Perlane costs or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Davison, give us a call today. In the meantime, we encourage patients to browse through some Perlane before and after pictures so they can get a better idea of the results they should expect.
What are Common Uses of Perlane?
Perlane is used mainly to add volume to facial lines in the cheeks and chin, as well as to fill out scars. It is also highly effective in augmenting the lips and chin, nose correction, and lifting the eyebrow area. For best results, many patients opt to have their Perlane treatment along with other injectables, such as Botox or Restylane. Your doctor will discuss your goals and treatment options with you during your initial consultation.
How Does Perlane Differ From Other Facial Fillers?
Perlane contains a higher concentration or hyaluronic acid, making it a better choice to improve the appearance of larger folds in the face (as opposed to smaller wrinkles). It is also longer-lasting than most other injectables, with results lasting up to eight months. The best way to compare results is to look at some Perlane before and after pictures as well as those of other injectables.
What are Perlane Costs?
Perlane costs vary from patient to patient, so give us a call today to discuss your specific goals. We would be happy to set up your consultation with Dr. Davison, who will be able to answer any of your questions, and give you a clearer understanding of all of the available dermal fillers that we offer.
The Vanishing Vein offers Radiesse injections to patients throughout Framingham, Boston, Newton, Worcester, Cambridge, Lowell and Quincy, MA.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that has been approved by the FDA to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by stimulating the natural production of collagen in the skin. This product is made of microspheres composed of calcium hydroxylapatite within a water-based gel and is made from minerals similar to what makes up our bones. Radiesse can be injected directly into the skin with no need for pre-testing.
To better visualize the results, we encourage all patients to view some Radiesse before and after pictures. And if you’d like to discuss average Radiesse prices, or any other aspect of the treatment, please don’t hesitate to call us today.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse injections are performed right here in our Framingham office. Dr. Davison is a certified Radiesse specialist, and he will inject the calcium-based filler using a tiny needle into the treatment area. There is no anesthesia or down time required with this procedure.
Radiesse’s unique microsphere technology begins working immediately to stimulate the body’s own collagen production. This results in incredibly natural-looking results, which will fade over time as the solution is absorbed by the body.
What Results Can I Expect with Radiesse?
Radiesse is most effective in reducing the appearance of smile lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth. The results of this procedure are visible immediately after the injection and can last for up to a year or even longer. With continued treatment, patients will require fewer and fewer injections. As you’ll see by browsing some Radiesse before and after pictures, you can expect a smooth, youthful-looking and nearly flawless complexion.
What are Radiesse Costs?
Our staff is available to answer any questions you may have, including average Radiesse costs. However, we’ll be able to give you a more accurate estimate during your initial consultation with Dr. Davison, as he’ll be able to sit down with you to discuss your specific goals, and come up with a treatment plan from there.
The Vanishing Vein offers Restylane injections to patients throughout Framingham, Boston, Newton, Worcester, Cambridge, Lowell and Quincy, MA.
What is Restylane?
Restylane® is an FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that restores volume to the skin, lifting and smoothing out wrinkles and other fine lines. This procedure is most commonly used to treat the glabellar lines, between the forehead and the nasolabial folds. It can also be used to add volume and shape to the lips.
Give us a call today and our helpful staff would be happy to schedule your appointment, or give you average Restylane prices. If you’re still unsure if this filler is for you, take a look at some Restylane before and after pictures to see the results you can likely expect.
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane is made up of a hyaluronic acid-based gel which permeates the dermal tissue and binds to water molecules in the skin. This reaction effectively adds volume to the treatment area, giving your complexion a smoother, lifted and naturally youthful appearance. Restylane gradually dissolves over time without any residue or trace.
What Results Can I Expect with Restylane?
Since Restylane is made from a natural substance found in the body, no pre-testing is required. Restylane produces results that last for several months through its unique ability to bind with water and remain in the skin. The results of this procedure are visible right away, and can last for several months, depending on the condition of the individual patient’s skin. The see the results for yourself, take a minute to browse through some Restylane before and after pictures.
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane?
