Is it Already Time to Consider the Holidays?

Holiday Facial Rejuvenation

While Halloween has not yet come and gone, the Holiday Season is closer than you might expect – and now is a fantastic time to start considering non-surgical facial rejuvenation to help ensure you look and feel your most confident before its major social and familial events. Dermal fillers and laser treatments are both fantastic ways to address various concerns, but their full results can take a few weeks to become apparent. Scheduling your appointment now allows for plenty of time for your results to set in, allowing you to look your very best before the busiest season begins.

Dermal Filler Options at Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center

We are pleased to offer dermal fillers from both the Juvéderm® and Restylane® families. Trusted, effective, and safe, these fillers can be used to address skin laxity and signs of aging throughout the face, helping to restore a more youthful shape to multiple treatment areas.

Popular options available through our office include:

  • Juvéderm®, designed to treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lip areas
  • Juvéderm Voluma™, designed to lift sagging skin and add volume to the cheeks
  • Restylane®, designed to treat laugh lines and to improve the symmetry and volume of the lips
  • Restylane® Lyft, designed to address nasolabial folds along with skin laxity, lines, and wrinkles

In addition to these options, we offer both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® for the elimination of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet.

Laser Medicine

Dr. Deborah Farrell specializes in laser medicine, another incredibly safe and effective option for Holiday skin rejuvenation. Depending on your specific needs, laser treatments can be used to address a number of common concerns including:

  • Fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Sun and age spots
  • Spider veins
  • Unwanted hair

We also offer laser tattoo removal for the permanent removal of regrettable ink.

Dermal Filler or Neurotoxin: Which Option is Best for You?

Filler vs. Neurotoxin

Dermal fillers add volume to the face. At Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, we offer a comprehensive line of fillers from the Juvederm® and Restylane® families, enabling us to address common concerns such as:

  • Facial lines and wrinkles
  • Hollow or sunken cheeks
  • Depressions underneath the eyes
  • Asymmetrical or insubstantial lips

Restylane® Lyft, available at our office, has also been approved for use on the back of the hands. It is the first and currently only dermal filler to be approved for this use.

The dermal fillers at our Mechanicsburg office have been selected for their efficacy and history of safe application. A single treatment can last for six to 18 months.

Neurotoxins

We offer BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, two of the most trusted and effective neurotoxins on the market. Unlike fillers, which stimulate collagen and elastin production, neurotoxins work to relax muscles, allowing the overlying skin to become smooth.

Neurotoxins can be used to treat:

  • Forehead creases
  • Lines in between eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Neckbands

In some cases, neurotoxins can also be used to address issues like pebbly chin and skin laxity along the jaw as well.

Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® will provide results for three to four months. Results can be maintained through touch-up visits.

Which Option is Best for You?

Dermal fillers and neurotoxins treat different issues. The one that is appropriate for you will be based on your specific concerns, anatomy, and ultimate desires. 

During your initial consultation, we will listen carefully to your requests and provide an honest assessment of your best options. This may include a dermal filler, a neurotoxin, or a combination of treatments. It may also include nonsurgical options, such as laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel, that address issues outside the reach of injectables.

At Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, we take time to understand each patient’s individual needs, allowing us to provide the most suitable treatments. Please call us at 717-732-9000 to schedule your consultation and learn more. Located in Mechanicsburg, we serve all surrounding areas of Pennsylvania.
