AccuVein – Bruise Prevention Device
Seeing beneath the skin to avoid the bruise
Bruising from cosmetic injections…why does this occur?
Cosmetic Injection can cause a bruise, no matter how careful or experienced the injector. Until now there was never a way to see “beneath the skin” to avoid nipping a blood vessel. The face is incredibly vascular – that’s the primary reason the face bruises so easily.
Seeing the vessels before we inject helps to avoid them, the potential for that accidental bruise goes WAY down. Before AccuVein, any injector was essentially operating blind – and even with precision knowledge of facial vein anatomy, every single person’s vein map is different. Vein illumination – the solution AccuVein precisely illuminates veins, large and small, on any area of the face and body, allowing us to avoid them.
When it comes to fine lines and wrinkles, there are a few different types. Some wrinkles can be easily treated with dermal fillers, while others require a different kind of treatment. Neuromodulators are designed to treat wrinkles that appear when expressions are made, otherwise known as dynamic wrinkles. We treat both men and women to improve their appearance without that "injected" look. Here at Precision Aesthetics & Wellness, we have a range of neuromodulators to choose from. We can easily determine what's best for you during your consultation at no charge!
What are Neuromodulators?
When we are young, our face easily bounces back when we make expressions. The wrinkles that form when we smile or frown disappear as soon as we relax the muscles. As we age, however, the collagen and elastin start to break down to the point where the wrinkles stick around long after they would normally have faded away.
Dermal fillers can’t address these wrinkles, just like neuromodulators can’t address static wrinkles. Neuromodulators block nerve transmission so that the muscles that form wrinkles do not contract. You can still make the same expressions, but your face will remain wrinkle-free. Below is more information about the injectables we offer at Precision Aesthetics & Wellness.
BOTOX® is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the US. It is used to treat wrinkles that appear in areas like in between the eyebrows. It treats the underlying muscles, so your appearance will stay natural and relaxed without the “frozen” look that many patients dread. The results are able to last up to four months.
Dysport® is used to treat the lines in between the eyebrows, also known as the “angry elevens.” These lines can make you look frustrated or irritated, even when you’re completely at ease. Once the underlying muscles have been treated, the wrinkles on the surface of your skin have a chance to fade away. The results from Dysport® are also able to last up to four months.
Another neuromodulator that has been FDA-approved to treat glabellar lines, Xeomin® allows for a natural-looking appearance that is line-free. This injectable contains no additives, which means there is less of a risk that the patient’s body will develop antibodies to fight off the injectable serum. The results from this treatment are visible after one week, and they last up to four months.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Are you suffering from fine lines and wrinkles on your face? These age-related imperfections are mainly due to a loss of collagen and elastin as we get older. Plenty of over-the-counter creams and serums claim to erase wrinkles, but very few actually deliver. At Precision Medical in Mt. Kisco, NY, we offer a range of dermal fillers that can effectively plump and hydrate the skin with little to no downtime.
Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive treatment that uses certain active ingredients to rejuvenate the skin. Some fillers last longer than others, but most of them come with little to no downtime. The right filler for you can be determined when you visit us for your consultation. Below is more information about each of the dermal fillers we offer.
Replenishes your skin's lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. But What's unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. The natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients. The gel of the filler contains microspheres made from calcium hydroxyapatite, which are what the new collagen growth builds on. Typical results from this filler last from 12 to 18 months. Radiesse has recently received FDA approval for the use in hand rejuvenation.
JUVÉDERM Ultra® XC is the smooth gel filler used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose and enhance your lips. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.

Restylane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles.
Just like Restylane, Lyft adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) can be used in the lips as well.
What makes Lyft different is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection.
Restylane® Refyne is designed with XpresHAn Technology™ to help soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). This can help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions. So, you always look like you. Talk to your specialist and see for yourself why it’s worth it.

Crafted with XpresHAn Technology™, Restylane® Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Using innovative cross-linking technology, Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is able to help restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain your natural expressions.
Another hyaluronic acid-based filler, BELOTERO BALANCE® is a filler for the treatment of nasolabial folds. These are the lines that form around the mouth when you smile. BELOTERO BALANCE® is used for moderate to severe nasolabial folds, and it can be used in other areas around the mouth, nose, and chin as well. The results from this filler can last up to 12 months.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Sculptra Aesthetic helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. It works gradually, producing a more natural-looking appearance that can last up to two years. If you want a more youthful-looking appearance without looking like you've had work done, then Sculptra Aesthetic may be the right choice for you.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a facial injectable that works gradually in a series of treatments — on average three injection sessions over a few months — for subtle, more natural-looking results. It begins to work within the deep dermis, where your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have depleted over time.
Since Sculptra Aesthetic works over time it’s important to keep going to all your treatment sessions as recommended. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. Following a simple aftercare routine that includes short facial massages will also help you get the most out of Sculptra Aesthetic. Each session builds on the last to produce a more natural-looking appearance that doesn't look like you've had work done.
