Facial Rejuvenation & Facial Skin Care in Naples, FL
Dr. Varveris specializes in three facial rejuvenation techniques: Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Botulinum Toxin, and Dermal Filler Injections.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
WHAT is PRP?
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. Dr. Varveris begins by drawing a small amount of your blood and then processing it in a special centrifuge. This provides a plasma concentrate containing a higher than normal number of platelets, which is referred to as platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. While the PRP is being processed, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for treatment. Dr. Varveris will then inject the PRP into the necessary facial areas. After a series of three treatments done at bi-weekly to monthly intervals, Dr. Varveris recommends repeating PRP every six to nine months, with each treatment tending to give better and longer-lasting results than the previous one.
HOW Does PRP Work?
Platelets are those blood cells responsible for tissue healing and the growth of new cells. When PRP is injected, it stimulates the production of natural collagen. This will regenerate your facial tissues and act to naturally smoothen and tighten your skin, softening wrinkles and creating a more youthful facial appearance.
Botulinum Toxin Injections (e.g. Botox)
Botulinum Toxin (Botox) is most commonly used on "active" wrinkles, those that occur when the muscles of the face are in movement. Functioning as a muscle relaxant, Botox is administered via a series of painless, super-fine injections into those areas of the face where wrinkles most commonly develop. It works to dramatically smoothen frown lines on the forehead and between the brows as well as crow's feet at the corners of the eyes. Dr. Varveris recommends that Botox be performed every three to nine months to providing lasting and satisfying results.
Dermal Filler Injections (e.g. Juvederm)
WHAT are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers consist of various forms of hyaluronic-acid, an important structural component of connective and epithelial tissues. When injected into the skin, dermal fillers restore areas of the face where collagen has broken down. This will plump that area to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or unsightly fold has disappeared. For best cosmetic results, Dr. Varveris recommends repeating dermal filler injections every three to six months.
HOW are Dermal Fillers Used?
Dr. Varveris utilizes dermal fillers to achieve the following results:
Enhance shallow contours
Minimize the appearance of recessed scars
Plump thin lips
Soften facial creases and wrinkles
