Dark circles, wrinkles and laugh lines are all a part of growing older. However, the signs of aging often impact self-confidence and state of mind for many people. For over two years, Memorial Hospital of Converse County has helped those lines disappear with aesthetic treatments like Botox.
Kellie Clausen, FNP Medical Office Building in Douglas, and Temberly Long, DNP in our Oregon Trail Rural Health Clinic in Glenrock have both received advanced training in administering products including Botox and Juvederm and are here to help before a big event like a wedding or class reunion to simple everyday needs!
From twenty-somethings to patients well into their prime, both our Medical Office and Oregon Trail Rural Health Clinics are offering these services at the lowest cost in Wyoming at a regionally low $9 per unit to help people feel better about themselves and curb some of that natural aging process.
When we discuss the different products and procedures available at Memorial Hospital of Converse County, we usually break down the face into regions. Botox which is a smoother, is usually used in the top two-thirds of the face: finelines in the forehead and around the eyeline. Fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma are used in the bottom third beginning with the cheek bone are and used down through the wells around the mouth.
One of the first to hit the market over 15 years ago, Botox has been one of the most clinically researched products available. Botox is routinely used as a smoothing agent for fine lines and wrinkles. Our approach to using Botox is not to freeze the face but to use it conservatively to allow the product to work while allowing the muscles to still work under the skin. Most patients report a light pinch, but we use numbing cream on the skin to help minimize any pain. But the product begins to show results within 24 to 48 hours, with many reporting a noticeable smoothing of fine lines, crows feet, and wrinkles!
Like most aesthetic products, Botox is not a permanent treatment. Discontinuing the use of Botox will allow those lines and wrinkles to return. The length of time between treatments can differ between patients, but many report not having to have additional treatments until 2-3 months on average.
Juvederm & Voluma
Made from concentrated Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, Juvederm has been a highly popular product with our patients! This dermal filler works especially well at the cheek bone, lip, and lower face region to give a youthful appearance. A multi-use filler, Juvederm can be used to volumize cheeks, plump lips, and even help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
