Skin Treatments

Look Younger and Enjoy Improved Confidence

BOTOX® Cosmetic Springfield

Dr. Papale, our LASIK eye surgeon, proudly offers skin treatments, including BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM™ at our Springfield practice, to meet the needs of our patients. We find that many of our patients are interested in refreshing their appearance after undergoing eye surgery. With improved vision, our patients tend to feel rejuvenated; with this renewed sense of vigor comes a desire to look younger and healthier. The BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM™ treatments we offer at our Springfield practice help eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles and laugh lines, and provide a smooth, even complexion. Relatively painless and safe. In fact, approximately 11 million procedures have been performed with BOTOX® Cosmetic. These skin treatment options allow us to provide our patients with an appearance that matches their internal sense of enthusiasm and confidence. If you live in Western Massachusetts and are interested in skin treatment, we invite you to contact our Springfield office today. You can feel confident choosing Dr Papale for your cosmetic procedure, as he has had over 20 years experience administering BOTOX® Cosmetic.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

One of the most popular and non-invasive skin treatment options on the market, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe and effective treatment for reducing or eliminating age lines, laugh lines, and wrinkles. More than 11 million people have enjoyed the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic, and the product is FDA-approved for cosmetic applications. If you have age lines or wrinkles that you would like to eliminate or reduce, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be for you. The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment are remarkable; patients enjoy smoother, tauter skin and improved skin complexion. Indeed, according to the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation, 97 percent of patients who undergo treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic are satisfied with their results.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein injectable that is administered directly into the skin via a fine needle. The product disrupts the production of a chemical known as acetylcholine, which is responsible for muscle contractions beneath the skin. The BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment in effect relaxes the nerves just below the skin responsible for wrinkles and laugh lines, thus reducing muscle contractions. Because the injectable is placed directly underneath the skin, normal muscle movement and control is unaffected. The treatment helps to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines associated with negative expressions such as anger or worry. BOTOX Cosmetic ® allows you to chose your own expressions! The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic can last up to six months.

JUVÉDERM™

As we age, skin changes and the natural volume of youthful skin diminishes, causing wrinkles and folds to appear. JUVÉDERM™ is one of the newest skin fillers on the market, and is becoming very popular with patients thanks to its impressive results. A hyaluronic acid (a natural substance found in the skin and muscles of animals), JUVÉDERM™ can reduce the appearance of deep folds in the face by adding volume and hydration to the skin. Additionally, the filler contains an anesthetic making the treatment more comfortable. These lines are in most instances immune to exercise and diet and in some cases can actually be exacerbated by weight loss. With JUVÉDERM™, the appearance of these lines, which typically run outwards from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth, can be greatly reduced.

Approved by the FDA in 2006, JUVÉDERM™ has proven to be safe, effective, and fast-acting. Manufactured by Allergen, Inc., the same company that makes BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM™ is one of the best skin treatment options on the market for the reduction or wrinkles and age lines on the face. Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, which is an injectable that inhibits muscle contraction, JUVÉDERM™ is an injectable filler. The hyaluronic acid can remain in the body for up to one year after being injected, before being naturally and harmlessly absorbed; as a result, the effects of JUVÉDERM™ are long-lasting, meaning you will require fewer treatments than those required by alternative treatment options and more affordable than surgical alternatives.
