When BOTOX and Dysport are injected into muscles, it blocks the transmission between the nerve endings and the surrounding muscle fibers and causes weakness in the muscles, reducing the contractions in the local area. Botox/Dysport only work on the muscles that have been specifically injected, which leaves the surrounding muscles functioning as normal. *The end result is softening, or even eliminating lines of expression of the upper face.
The three most commonly treated areas are the Glabellar Complex (central frown lines), horizontal brow lines, and Crow’s Feet (smile lines). This does not affect your actual smile, as those muscles are not injected. Over time, lines at rest may even fully be reversed. The best approach for success is to be re-injected with Botox or Dysport just as the effect is starting to fade (commonly between ten and twelve weeks for most individuals).
Botox: $11/unit when purchasing 40+ unit; $12/unit when purchasing 30+ units; $13/unit for less than 30 units.
Dysport: $4.00/unit 100+ units; $4.40/unit less than 100.
*Botox/Dysport units can also be purchased in advance and banked for later use to save you money.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.
• *Plump thin lips
• *Enhance shallow contours
• *Soften facial creases and wrinkles
• *Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.
For some patients, surgery such as a facelift, brow lift, or eye lift may be the best approach. Non-surgical rejuvenation treatments, such as soft tissue fillers, cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time when consideration of a facelift becomes appropriate. A consultation is best to help you determine which ones are right for you.

Heather Humphries RN – I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 1999 and have since taken on many roles as a registered nurse. No matter the role however, I’ve always been most gratified by the personal connections I’ve made with my patients. In addition to nursing I’ve always had a passion for art, specifically painting.
In recent months while focusing on anti-aging for myself, I learned that I had a strong desire to help others with the aging process as well. I am very excited to have obtained my licensing and certification to perform cosmetic injections and to be given the opportunity to work for Advanced Skin Therapy of Smokey Point. It’s truly beautiful that I will now be able to merge my nursing skills along with the artist in me for the benefit of those that I will have the opportunity to serve. And since being with Advanced Skin Therapy for more than 2 years now, I have parlayed my love for art with cosmetic injections and have developed such a wonderful client raport and most importantly a happy clientele. I’m delighted to be a part of such a professional, skilled and fun team!
