FOERHEAD LINES IMPROVED at LONDON MEDICAL SPA

These photos are of my patient before and 2 weeks after her neuromodulator treatment. Notice how the horizontal lines have smoothed out creating a more refreshed look. How many years were removed from her face with this easy 5 minute treatment?

Three neuromodulators are FDA approved in the US. The most popular and commonly known is Botox. The two others Dysport and Xeomin are also very effective with nearly identical longevity. I use them all and get great results.

How they work: These drugs when injected into or near a target muscle will prevent the nerve that activates it from releasing the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. This action weakens the muscle temporarily and keeps it from contracting for about 3 months.

This treatment is technique specific and you will be well served by going to an experienced injector. In this patient the Frontalis muscle has been injected with very small amounts of Dysport. The Frontalis muscle is a thin sheet of muscle over the forehead. Importantly, it the ONLY elevator of the eyebrows. Too much neuromodulator medicine or in the wrong location will temporarily drop the brow and create eyelid hooding. This is not an attractive look but unfortunately can and does happen on occasion with even the most experienced doctors. Thankfully this is temporary and will resolve in a couple weeks.
Some patients that already have a low or flat brow or eyelid hooding may therefore not be good candidates for this treatment. They would instead benefit from a CHEMICAL BROW LIFT using the same neuromodulators and this treatment is also available at LONDON MEDICAL SPA.

Duration: This treatment lasts about 3-4 months with all 3 neuromodulators. Dysport seems to work the fastest with visible changes starting in about 6 hours. I like that. I recommend that my patients receive a touch up in 2-3 months before the effect wears off and the lines come back.
Some people say their treatments last 6 months- lucky them.
Some patients unfortunately have shorter longevity of their treatments. Those with the deepest lines and therefore the strongest muscles will often need a touch up sooner. Also those that are high metabolizers, for example runners, will also find their Botox doesn’t last as long.

Cost: I usually charge $200 for this forehead treatment regardless of the amount of drug I use. If more is needed in 2 weeks I do the touch up at no additional cost.

CHEEK FILLER at LONDON MEDICA SPA

These photos are of my patient before and after her cheek filler. Cheek filler has become one of my favorite treatments for both men and women and I do a lot of it. Cheeks are the place to start when rejuvenating the face.

This treatment will subtly lift the face. If you think of the face as a triangle, aging creates more of a base at the bottom. Adding cheek filler helps to invert this triangle giving a more heart shaped contour to the face.

Before I add filler to the under eye area or the folds between the nose and mouth I will often first fill the cheeks and see what effect enhancing the cheeks alone will have on those areas. Possibly less product will be needed to create the overall effect.

Filler is degraded by facial movement. Cheek filler is long lasting because there is less movement in the cheeks compared to other areas of the face such as lips. Some cheek fillers can last up to two years.

It’s a very comfortable procedure with no downtime and no bruising taking only 20 minutes for me to perform. Instantly visible to you but this stealthy enhancement will not be obvious to others.

UPPER FACE TREATMENT at LONDON MEDICAL SPA

Here is another photo series of my patient before and after her forehead treatment. Notice how the deep central frown line and the horizontal forehead lines were improved after treatment.

Deep expression lines on the forehead are caused by repeated brow raising and frowning. The underlying muscles when activated crease the skin. This over time damages the skin and underlying tissues leaving deeply etched lines.
In patients with deep lines few treatments will be more effective at removing age and a stressed appearance from the face than this one.

Frequently neuromodulator( Dysport, Botox, Xeomin) alone is not enough to treat this area. Her treatment involved a combination of precisely placed filler in the vertical frown line between the brows and Dysport in this frown line and over the forehead. Filler in the frown lines is an advanced treatment and should never be performed by an inexperienced injector.

Horizontal forehead lines are a tricky business as well. The frontalis muscle is the only elevator of the eyebrow. Too many units of neuromodulator in the frontalis muscle will weaken the muscle enough to drop the brow excessively making you look Neanderthal. This is temporary but takes weeks to resolve. It is sometimes difficult even for the most experienced injector to judge initially how much neuromodulator is the correct amount to block the lines yet not drop the brow or cause upper eyelid hooding to increase. I prefer to treat in stages for this area in patients at risk for brow drop. I treat conservatively initially then touch up in two weeks.

ANOTHER MID/LOWER FACE TREATMENT at LONDON MEDICAL SPA

These photos are of my patient before and immediately after her filler in the mid and lower face.
Notice how the mouth corners and marionette lines are improved. The nasolabial folds are also softened.

These results should last 6-9 months at which time a touch up is beneficial. Filler induces your own collagen to be laid down and less filler may be needed at subsequent treatments.

Filler can be dangerous when not injected properly. There are danger areas of the face near blood vessels and a skilled injector knows where and how much to inject to prevent complications such as infection, lumpiness, skin break down, and even blindness. Again, choose your injector wisely.

PRICING: I keep my treatment prices competitive to nearby practices but I still get calls everyday wanting price quotes for filler and Botox. That said, what you are really paying for is the SKILL AND EXPERIENCE OF THE INJECTOR not the product. You want to know what is really expensive? Fixing problems! Remember this is your face not your buttocks. Your good( or bad) results are seen and can’t be hidden. Bottom line: Don’t chase the lowest price on filler, Botox, or any other cosmetic treatments. Go to someone with experience and expertise and you will be happier in the long run.

MOUTH CORNER TREATMENT at LONDON MEDICAL SPA

These photos are of my patients before and after their treatments of the mouth corners. Notice how in the after photos the corners of the mouth are lifted. This takes age off of the appearance of the face.

The medical name for this is area is the oral commissure. The mouth tends to turn down with age due to the pull of the depressor muscles of the mouth, skin laxity, and gravity. A depressed mouth corner gives the appearance of sadness and adds age to the face.

This is an easy treatment which I perform everyday. I start this treatment at the first hint of this age related change in my patients, even in their 30s.

How it’s done:

Numbing cream is applied for 30 minutes. Next, the proper amount of high G prime filler( lifts well) is injected with a tiny needle in the proper area to lift the mouth corners. It is critical not to add too much filler. The results are instant and last 6-9 months. Some bruising is common but only lasts a week and can be covered by make up. You may feel the filler under the skin for a couple weeks then it becomes assimilated into the surrounding tissues.

It’s a rewarding treatment for the patient and the doctor because the results are instantly visible yet quite discreet and hardly detectable to others.

ANOTHER UNDER EYE TREATMENT at LONDON MEDICAL SPA

These are photos of my patient before and after treatment of her under eye area. Notice how this treatment removes age from her appearance.

“Dark circles”under the eyes are a common complaint. They make us look tired and older. Dark hollows under the eyes can be caused by loss of fat and bone resorption in the area. The skin in this area is also some of the thinnest on the body and blood vessels can be seen thru the skin making the area appear darker. Adding a small amount of filler can make the under eye area appear more youthful.

This procedure takes about 20 minutes and results are instant. Best results are seen at two weeks. The procedure is performed comfortably after numbing cream. Some swelling and minor bruising is common for a few days after.

Usually one syringe is all that is needed to treat both eyes and results can last a year or more.

Caution: this is an advanced treatment and should be performed by only the most experienced physicians.

ANOTHER LONDON FACE LYFT at LONDON MEDICAL SPA

These photos are of my patient before and 72 hours after her treatment. Multiple modalities were used here. An untrained eye might look at these photos and not see much but if you study the photos you will notice the subtle but real changes in her lips, cheeks, under eyes, brow height, facial lines, skin texture and color. My goal is to make real changes but still keep my patients looking very natural.

She offered this testimonial:

”Dr London is awesome! He is so much fun and light hearted. I just drove 4 plus hours -again- from Tampa bay to see Dr L! I'm 45 yrs old and I don't have good cheek bones. I'm in love with what he does for my cheeks (restylane) and lasting results (12 months). Dr L. also added restylane to my tear troughs this last go round and that had some pretty cool results for lighting up the dark circles around my eyes. I also tried Dr L. "Great" chemical peel, I didn't realize how much dried dead skin I had on my face. There is really something to be said about a chemical peel removing all those fine lines around the mouth and crows feet. I'll be back in 6 months to see you again Dr L. Thanks, again!”

The LONDON FACE LYFT is my specialized treatment consisting of filler( usually 3 syringes), neuromodulator(Dysport or Botox), and a skin resurfacing all done in one hour long session. Each modality is individualized to the patient as to where and how much of each product is used.

In her case I felt the filler was best used to subtly fill her cheeks and tear troughs. This treatment elevates the face somewhat and fills the hollows under the eyes. Next, her lips were a bit asymmetric needing more on the left upper lip so I enhanced her lips to create a more even look but was careful not to add to much volume(as always I’m trying to make her look natural not “done”). I used Dysport in her upper face to soften her forehead lines and even out her brow height. Lastly, I gave her a “LONDON GREAT PEEL” where I mix 4 different acids to provide a medium depth peel that will be complete in about 4 days.

This treatment is all customized to each patient depending on their needs. Best results are seen at two weeks when the filler has settled and the neuromodulator is fully effective.
A touch up of neuromodulator( Dysport) would be nice at 3 months.
