Turn that frown upside down with the help of Dysport. A prescription injection, Dysport naturally smoothes the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of your facial expressions.
Dysport’s numbers speak for themselves. Approved in 57 countries, Dysport boasts 25 years of clinical experience around the globe. And 97% of users say they would do it again.
How it Works
Over the course of time, wrinkles are formed by repeated facial movements and muscle contractions. Although wrinkles are more prevalent in the elderly, they commonly develop in younger adults as well.
Dysport injections combat wrinkles and frown lines by reducing specific muscle activity. During a quick 10 to 20-minute procedure, a Dysport specialist will perform an injection into each of five points between and above the eyebrows to temporarily prevent the muscle contractions that lead to frown lines. While certain muscle contractions are targeted, the rest of your face is left to move and express itself naturally.
Dysport offers quick treatment, immediate results and NO downtime. One short treatment can improve the look of your frown lines for up to four months and most patients see noticeable improvement just two to three days after your Dysport procedure. You can also come back for a repeat treatment for continued results.
Schedule your Dysport treatment at Envy Skin Clinic to freeze your frown lines, not your expressions!

Are you looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment that will last years, not months? Featuring three quick sessions, little downtime and up to two years of impressive results, find out why Sculptra Aesthetic stands out in the vast sea of injectables.
Sculptra is FDA-approved and can rejuvenate the skin around your eyes, lips and other areas of the face that show signs of aging. Via three treatments over the course of a few months, the injectable can restore definition to your face and reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and facial folds.
Sculptra offers a wide range of advantages over other injectables. These include:
- Results last up to two years, other injectables last for a few months.
- It is completely biocompatible (it won’t harm your body).
- It is injected under your skin, not into your skin.
- Sculptra is placed in a pattern to evenly fill out your face around the target area, not as a “spot” injection.
- Sculptra is supplied as a microcrystal powder mixed with sterile water, other fillers are supplied in gel form.
At your appointment, a Sculptra Aesthetic specialist will inject microscopic crystals under your skin to induce a mild inflammatory reaction. This triggers the formation of new collagen. Collagen production increases gradually after your treatment, with Sculptra’s full volume-enhancing results apparent in about four to six weeks.
Sculptra is injected using a very fine-gauge syringe under (not into) your skin–unlike some dermal injectables. Sculptra is placed evenly under a facial defect, which allows for better results than the “spot” placement of other fillers under a wrinkle or line. Immediately after treatment, target areas are massaged for a few minutes to distribute Sculptra evenly.
Sculptra is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is naturally absorbed by the body as it works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for decades in dissolvable stitches and as a facial injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries.
There is little to no downtime after receiving Sculptra injections. While there may be some redness and/or swelling, most patients are able to return immediately to their daily schedule. If there are no complications, makeup can be applied several hours after treatment.
With long-lasting results and minimal downtime, Sculptra is a no-brainer. Schedule your Sculptra appointment at Envy Skin Clinic today for a natural, more youthful-looking appearance that can last two years!

Have your cheeks seen better days? Whether you’re young or elderly, a loss of volume can sag your cheeks and age your face. If you would like to tighten your face and lift your cheeks without the long recovery time and potential complications of surgery, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the solution for you!
The first and only filler to correct age-related volume loss and poorly-defined cheekbones in the midface for up to two years, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is FDA-approved and effective for adults over the age of 21. Because JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler, it can be shaped into the desired contour after injection.
After an application of specially-formulated numbing cream 15-20 minutes before treatment, a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC specialist will inject gel into your cheeks with very small needles. The actual injection only takes a few minutes and your specialist will complete the procedure by gently massaging your face to ensure the gel is properly distributed across the treatment area. The entire procedure is virtually painless due to the numbing cream and the tiny needles. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is also equipped with lidocaine to enhance patient comfort.
Results are immediate and can last up to two years! Most patients can resume normal activities right after treatment and any minor side effects (slight bruising and swelling) can be easily concealed with makeup.
Just about anyone with volume loss in their midface or poorly defined cheekbones is a candidate for treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. Younger patients in their 30s and 40s have better skin elasticity and often notice a more dramatic restoration of their facial volume, while older patients typically need more filler to reach the same level of correction. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can be paired with other facial injections and skin resurfacing treatments to achieve complete facial rejuvenation.
If you are looking to roll back the years with a quick and easy procedure on your cheeks that can last up to two years, schedule a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC appointment at Envy Skin Clinic today!

Looking to smooth those unsightly wrinkles and add fullness to your lips? Try a quick and easy Restylane treatment! FDA-approved for patients over the age of 21, Restylane fills in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This includes lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth and lines from your mouth to your chin. In addition to smoothing your face, Restylane can be used for lip enhancement.
After an application of specially-formulated numbing cream 15-20 minutes before treatment, a Restylane specialist will inject small amounts of crystal clear Restylane gel into your face using tiny needles. The actual injection only takes a few minutes and your specialist will complete the procedure by gently massaging your face to ensure the gel is properly distributed across the treatment area. The entire procedure is virtually painless due to the numbing cream and the small size of the needles.
Restylane is equipped with lidocaine and hyaluronic acid (HA) to enhance patient comfort and shaping into the desired contour after injection. Restylane can treat a wide variety of skin problems, including:
- Nose-to-Mouth Lines (Nasolabial Fold)
- Mouth-to-Chin Lines (Melomental Fold)
- Lines Above the Upper Lip
- Frown Lines
- Adding Lip Volume & Definition
- Restoring Cheek & Cheekbone Volume
- Wrinkles/Lines Under the Eyes
While results are immediate, they are oftentimes even more dramatic after a few days as the Restylane gel settles into its final shape. Depending on your treatment area, Restylane may last up to a year!
To cut down on swelling and bruising, avoid exercise (besides walking) for 24 hours after treatment and take Tylenol instead of Aspirin, Exedrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve or Advil.
Restylane can also be combined with other facial injections and skin resurfacing treatments to achieve even better results. What are you waiting for? Schedule an appointment at Envy Skin Clinic today to get rid of those pesky wrinkles and look (and feel) your best!

Looking for a facial peel that delivers the results of an invasive laser treatment without the long weeks of healing time? A MicroLaserPeel could be the perfect solution! The perfect level between microdermabrasion and skin resurfacing surgery, an FDA-approved MicroLaserPeel is a partial to full epidermal peel capable of removing deep-lying wrinkles, scars and other skin conditions.
How it Works
After your treatment area is numbed with topical anesthetic, a MicroLaserPeel specialist will apply the peel to your face, precisely removing the outermost layer of skin. This smoothes the skin’s surface while simultaneously blending pigmented age spots. Effective for both light and dark skin, a MicroLaserPeel can treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including:
- Wrinkles and Fine Lines
- Acne Scars and Other Scars
- Age Spots and Other Pigmentation Problems
- And More!
The MicroLaserPeel is tailored to your particular need and only takes about 30-40 minutes, allowing you to get back to your normal routine. For best results, repeat your MicroLaserPeel procedure 3-5 times, with each treatment spaced 4-8 weeks apart.
Immediately after your MicroLaserPeel, you will experience significantly smoother, healthier and more vibrant skin. The healing process typically takes 2-4 days. If your MicroLaserPeel is scheduled for a Friday, you will be all set to return to work the following Monday. Immediate symptoms are similar to a sunburn and can be easily treated with ointment and moisturizer and covered up by makeup.
If you are looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment more effective results than microdermabrasion without significant recovery time, sign up for a MicroLaserPeel today!

Acne scars, wrinkles or sun spots aging your face? Roll back the years and rejuvenate your skin with a quick and effective ProFractional laser treatment. Featuring dramatic results and quick recovery time, ProFractional offers skincare patients of all ages a wide range of benefits.
How ProFractional Works
Over the course of a quick 30 minute procedure, a ProFractional laser specialist uses a precise laser beam to pinpoint and treat the target area. ProFractional is a non-ablative treatment. The laser penetrates your skin deeply enough to correct mild and severe blemishes without damaging the surface tissue.
With minimal invasiveness and increased patient comfort, ProFractional laser treatment triggers the body’s wound healing response for rapid healing and tighter, smoother skin. This response works to minimize and eliminate:
- Acne scars
- Skin discoloration
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Poor skin tone and rough texture
- Shallow scars
- Sun spots (freckles)
Typically two to three ProFractional treatments are necessary for optimal results. Most patients need a mere 1-2 days of downtime following treatment. While patients often experience mild redness, tenderness and swelling immediately after the procedure, these symptoms are easily treated with a soothing ointment. Once your skin is healed, it is important to avoid pigmentation problems by applying a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
Although you will see immediate results after the first week of healing, your best results will be approximately 12 weeks after your last treatment. As your triggered wound healing response works to produce new collagen, your skin will become firmer, more resilient and elastic.
While ProFractional laser treatment offers effective results by itself, the procedure can be combined with a MicroLaserPeel for even more dramatic skin rejuvenation. Those acne scars and wrinkles don’t have to be permanent. Sign up for a ProFractional laser treatment to restore your face to a youthful, vibrant glow!
