Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic are injectable treatments available at our Houston, Texas practice. They are both variations of botulinum toxin A, commonly used to treat facial wrinkles. They are temporary solutions and have many similarities (and a few differences). The effect on muscle weakness is seen approximately two to four days following injection, with maximal weakness at seven to 10 days. The effect is usually reversed in four months. However, if an area is treated repeatedly, the effect seems to be prolonged after each time.
If you would like to improve the appearance of your skin by making it look younger and healthier, a chemical peel may be right for you. Different solutions such as glycolic acid, TCA, phenol, and croton oil are available at different concentrations. Each has its own specificity and indication. One of the chemical peels used the most by Dr. Madjidi is the Vi Peel, which has a blend of different chemicals that work together for an optimum result. It is suitable for all skin types and you can see and feel the result in just one week.
ThermiTight is a non-surgical, minimally invasive skin tightening treatment that uses a tiny probe to deliver radio frequency energy just beneath the surface of the skin. It’s primarily used to tighten sagging skin on the face, but it can also be used on the neck, tummy, and thighs.
ThermiSmooth is a radiofrequency treatment that is used to treat lax skin on the face, namely the eyelid, perioral, and cheek region. It requires a set of 3 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart to get maximal results.

Restylane® is soft-tissue filler that is used to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and restore fullness to the lips. It is made of non-animal based stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living cells of vertebrates. Restylane® is free of animal proteins. Though effective for the correction of numerous cosmetic flaws, the area that Restylane® helps the most is the laugh lines, called the nasolabial creases (parenthesis around the mouth).
Injection therapy with soft tissue fillers such as Restylane Lyft can restore facial contour, or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. If you would like to enhance shallow contours and improve the appearance of deep nasolabial creases, you may be a candidate for Restylane Lyft injection. Contact the Houston practice of Dr. Azita Madjidi today to learn more.
If you are interested in treating fine lines and wrinkles with injectable treatments, Prevelle® Silk may be an excellent solution.
JUVÉDERM® is soft tissue filler used to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and restore fullness to the lips. It is made of non-animal based stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living cells of vertebrates. JUVÉDERM® is free of animal proteins.
