What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® Cosmetic, from Allergan Inc., is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures performed for the temporary correction of certain facial wrinkles. It is a series of small intramuscular injections of an FDA approved purified protein. It works by reducing the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines, such as those between the brows and crows feet that cause wrinkles to form over time. The result is a smoother appearance of these areas with a new look and sense of confidence.

Botox® Cosmetic Treatment

Botox treatments are the top nonsurgical medical treatment in the world. A great option for people with frown lines between the brows, "crow's feet" around the eyes, or want an overall smoothing of the forehead and youthful appearance.

Most patients notice significant results within 3 or 4 days.  The full effect of relaxing the targeted muscles is in place by 10-14 days. 

Treatment Cost - $13/unit

What is Latisse?

River's Edge is now able to offer Latisse; a natural solution to lash extensions and temporary lash applications. Each Latisse kit comes with a bottle of solution and specially patented applicators. River's Edge sells both the 3ml and 5ml bottle at very competitive prices. Each night Latisse is brushed onto the upper lash line, using the disposable sterile brush. Lashes begin to appear longer and darker by 4 weeks, with full effect by 16 weeks.

Lashes gradually return to their prior appearance when Latisse is stopped. When used as directed, the 3ml bottle will last over one month and 5ml bottle over two months. There are creative ways to maximize brush usage and get more days out of each bottle.

My patients who use Latisse rave about their lashes.


Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers, like Juvederm and Restlyane, “fill” in the depressed area of volume loss that happens with aging. Common areas for Dermal Filler treatments are: plumping and defining lips, adding cheek volume, deep forehead/brow wrinkles, vertical lines around lips/smokers lines, nasal labial/parenthesis lines, and marionette lines from corners of the lips to the jaw line.

Depending on your area of concern, Dermal Fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years. During your appointment, the physician will work with you on choosing the best brand/type of filler for your procedure based on your desired result.  Dr. Sacchetti works with all Juvederm and Restylane brands.
