BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport ® injections are a simple, non-surgical procedure that smooths the deep, persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time.
These injections temporarily relax facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent new lines from forming. The end result is a naturally refreshed, more youthful look that will make you look and feel great. Common injection sites include the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Additionally, Kristina is adept at less-common sites that are markedly enhanced by Botox and Dysport including crepey skin and bands on the neck, radiating lip lines, or “smokers lines” around the mouth, uneven skin surface on the chin, overdeveloped masseter muscles on the jaw (teeth grinders and clenchers), and the underarms to combat excessive perspiration. In addition to standard injection techniques, she also employs her signature “Botox ® Sprinkles” and “Baby Botox ® " techniques for a very soft and natural look for those patients who seek minimal softening of lines.

Bring back moisture to your skin from the inside out. The newest generation of fillers is made from a substance, hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally throughout the body and holds 1,000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid, often referred to as “nature’s moisturizer”, is FDA approved and extremely safe. This natural molecule has the amazing capacity to maintain skin’s hydration, elasticity and volume. As we age, the ability of our bodies to make hyaluronic acid diminishes, leading to a gradual thinning of the skin and overall deflation. Now, with dermal filler we have a safe and effective tool to combat this problem and keep the skin plump and hydrated and bring back that youthful glow.
The areas treated with dermal fillers are vast and include but are not limited to lines, scars, wrinkles, undereye hollows, cheeks, lips, hands, temples, forehead, chin, jawline, neck, earlobes and even nose reshaping. Utilizing various techniques from microdroplets to feathering to cannula injections, Kristina will refresh your skin by bringing back the lost volume and hydration in harmony with your individual features. Robust fillers like Voluma and Restylane Lyft are excellent for reinforcing or enlarging structures such as cheekbones, jaw lines, and chin while the less cohesive, thinner fillers like Volbella, Vollure and Restylane are perfect for filling fine lines, defining and plumping the lips, and hydrating and brightening the dark undereye hollows.
Studies have also found that injections with natural fillers lead to “robust collagen production” They also work to disrupt collagen breakdown, giving you an actual increase in natural collagen production as well as an immediate plumping effect. Because hyaluronic acid is a natural substance already found in skin, there is a very low risk for allergic reaction and therefore no allergy skin testing is required.
