Botox is an FDA approved treatment used to address signs of aging on the face. It is composed of a unique solution called Botulinumtoxin, which is effective at treating most aging concerns. Adults of any age can get botox, whether it is to prevent signs of aging from developing or to treat existing ones. Botox is an approved treatment to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look softer and more relaxed. It can also be used to relax facial muscles and create a smoother, slimmer look.
Botox is a quick, 15-minute “lunchtime” procedure that is virtually pain-free. It takes anywhere from 10-14 days to take full effect with results that last 3-4 months. Botox delivers predictable, subtle results so you look just like yourself...only with less noticeable facial lines. With consistent treatments over time, Botox can help prevent further fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers or facial fillers are products such as collagen and hyaluronic acid that help to rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through facial injections. With age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Exposure to sun and years of muscle movement ( squinting, chewing, smiling ) contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin requiring intervention. Facial fillers are a great way to combat the aging process in a natural way.
We offer several different types of facial fillers at Ashley McFarland Aesthetics as well as many areas in which they can be injected. Depending on what area you are concerned with or your desired look may be, we are able to determine which filler would be best suited for you. You can expect, on average, for most dermal fillers to last 6 months-18 months depending on the area treated and which filler was injected.

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile. The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Before starting treatment, we will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if Kybella is right for you. Then, we will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.

Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique in which a small handheld instrument made of several tiny needles is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin. Microblading differs from eyebrow tattooing because each hair stroke is created by hand using a blade which, in turn, creates fine slices in the skin. Eyebrow tattoos are done with a machine and single needle. Microblading is used on eyebrows to create, enhance, reconstruct, or reshape their appearance in terms of both shape and color. Unlike traditional tattooing which deposits pigment deep into the skin, microblading deposits pigment into upper region of the dermis, so it fades more rapidly and is therefore able to give a more natural looking appearance of hair.

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, nonsurgical medical procedure that helps to remove extra fat cells from beneath the skin. As a noninvasive treatment, it has several benefits over traditional surgical fat removal procedures. CoolSculpting uses a procedure known as cryolipolysis. It works by placing a roll of fat into two panels that cool the fat to a freezing temperature. Some people who do CoolSculpting opt to treat several parts of the body, usually thighs, lower back, belly, and sides. It can also reduce the appearance of cellulite on the legs, buttocks, and arms. Some people also use it to reduce excess fat underneath the chin. It takes an hour to treat each targeted body part. While treating more body parts requires more CoolSculpting treatments to see results. Larger body parts may also require more treatments than smaller body parts.
