BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers
Age can not only affect how you look, but it may affect how you feel about your look. Wrinkles and other such lines become more prominent in our profiles the older we get. However, just because these signs of aging are someday inevitable, it doesn’t mean they have to stick around. At Leawood Aesthetics, we offer BOTOX® among other dermal fillers to help erase any signs of aging that may cause you any discomfort in your appearance.
What Are BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers?
The older people get, the more their skin sags. Simultaneously, the facial muscles we’ve been using our entire lives begin to surface, becoming more noticeably defined in our skin. This combination can lead to the development of smile lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX® and dermal fillers are used to treat such facial lines, restoring volume in the face for a youthful look. Call us today at Leawood Aesthetics to see if an injectable treatment may be right for you.
BOTOX® and dermal fillers can be used to:
- Smooth facial wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of acne scars
- Enhance hollow cheeks
- Add volume to thin lips

Following an injectable treatment, no downtime for recovery is necessary;
patients can get right back into their routines or activities. Patients may
experience mild swelling or bruising, temporary redness or numbness. However, these symptoms can be relieved with topical icing. These conditions can improve anywhere between a few hours to just a few days following treatment, depending on the patient.

Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is performed by selectively treating the hair follicle without causing thermal damage to the surrounding tissue. Laser light is absorbed by melanin which is the target in hair. The light is converted to heat and then the heat damages the bulb disabling the hair structure. The heat loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. Since pigment is necessary to treat effectively, we cannot treat white, gray, red, or light-blonde hair.
Hair has 3 growing cycles: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Laser hair removal is most effective in the Anagen phase (the active growth phase) because the hair then contains an abundance of melanin and cells are rapidly dividing. It is impossible to treat all the viable hair follicles in one session. To be effective, a series of 4-6 treatments are necessary. To target the active growth cycles, the treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. During this time, it is important to shave or clip the new hair growth between hair removal treatments. No waxing, plucking or hair removal creams should be used since the hair shaft must be intact for the light energy to be transmitted to the hair bulb.
Almost all areas such as face, back, chest, bikini area, shoulders, legs and arms can be treated effectively, quickly and safely. Call us today at Leawood Aesthetics to schedule your laser hair removal consultation and experience the freedom of no more waxing, tweezing or shaving!
Femilift is a revolutionary, non-surgical, new treatment for vaginal rejuvenation. It addresses the three major issues associated with vaginal aging, health, and sexual intimacy: vaginal laxity, dryness, and incontinence. Femilift is a nonsurgical laser procedure that does not require the use of hormones and requires no downtime!
Femilift is a laser sleeve that is inserted into the vagina and delivers laser energy into the surrounding tissue. It uses micro-ablative energy (fractional CO2 laser energy pulses) to achieve a deep thermal effect, which stimulates collagen renewal as well as the contraction of the elastic fibers. The result is rejuvenation and remodeling of the treated area.
Patients who choose vaginal tightening with Femilift enjoy several important benefits:
- Enhanced muscle tone, strength, and elasticity of vaginal tissues
- Stronger sensation during intercourse
- Better control over urinary incontinence
- Fewer infections
Most patients will experience improvement in their symptoms within three-tofour weeks of their first treatment. The current recommendation is to have three treatments performed one month apart in order to achieve the maximum vaginal tightening effect.
