Age is just a number, but sometimes we don’t want others to know ours. To decrease signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines on your face, consider getting Botox® or dermal fillers from Amanda Ralph, MSN, APRN, NP-C, at White Coat Aesthetics in Las Vegas. Botox and dermal fillers are extremely popular and have proven themselves with their lasting results. For a consultation, reach out to Amanda today.

Derived from clostridium botulinum, Botox® is a purified protein version of botulinum toxin type A. Botox is one of the most popular and well-established substances that practitioners use to temporarily reduce wrinkles in patients.
To get results, Amanda injects Botox directly into the muscle, where it blocks that muscle’s nerve signals and temporarily relaxes it. When the muscle is relaxed, dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement soften, dissipate, or disappear completely.
Examples of dynamic wrinkles include:
Botox results usually last between three and four months.
As an alternative to Botox, the practice also offers Dysport® injections. Made from a similar toxin, Dysport works best as a treatment for moderate to severe lines in the area between your eyebrows.
Dermal fillers are solutions that Amanda injects into your skin to add fullness and volume and diminish the appearance of fine lines. Dermal fillers can also enhance features, like cheek contours and facial structure.
White Coat Aesthetics uses a few different types of dermal fillers. These include:
Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Juvederm is best for restoring fullness and reducing signs of aging in your lips, cheeks, and around the mouth.
Restylane® uses hyaluronic acid gel to target wrinkles and folds. It can restore fullness to your face and the back of your hands.
Kybella®, made from deoxycholic acid, is designed specifically to treat the presence of moderate to severe fat under the chin, or a “double chin.”
Sculptra® is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic biocompatible substance that prompts collagen production. Sculptra fillers are best for treating deep folds, lines, and creases in the skin, and restoring facial volume.
Because each dermal filler is different, your results can last anywhere between six months and two years.
When you meet with Amanda for your free consultation, she helps you determine which treatment is right for you based on factors such as:
Your health history is also an important determining factor in your choice between Botox and dermal fillers.
