Learn more about neuromodulators
Neuromodulators are a type of injectable medication used to relax specific muscles in the face that contribute to unwanted lines and wrinkles. Commonly treated areas are the "angry-11" vertical lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead wrinkles, crows feet (around the eyes), and bunny lines (along the sides of the nose.) Dr. Gerecci also performs specialized injections that require more expertise than the standard treatment areas. Injections can be performed to help correct eyebrow asymmetries, provide a chemical “browlift”, diminish fine lines around the lips, improve a gummy smile, fix downturned corners of the mouth, smooth out dimpling of the chin, relax hyperactive masseter activity leading to a square-shaped face or nighttime grinding/TMJ discomfort, smooth out vertical platysmal bands of the neck, and relax muscles that lead to a bunched-up appearance of the lower eyelid.
She makes sure each patient understands what product is being used, what dosage, what treatment areas, expected outcomes, risks/benefits of treatment, cost, and is given detailed explanations and instructions. A complimentary Dr. Gerecci values patient comfort and utilizes multiple techniques to help minimize discomfort during the treatment session. Sometimes injections are done to “treat” a problem that already exists, but injections are also performed to “prevent” unwanted lines or wrinkles of the face. A typical treatment session is 15-30 minutes and involves multiple tiny injections of the desired treatment area. follow up visit is scheduled 2 weeks after injection to ensure patients are satisfied with their results and any questions or concerns are addressed.

Learn more about dermal fillers
Dr. Gerecci only uses dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural occurring substance found in our skin, soft tissue, and connective tissues. A benefit of using HA products is that they can be dissolved and reversed. Fillers can be used to soften lines, wrinkles, and grooves of the face but can also be used to build structure and support in the face. Commonly injected areas are the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, and lips. Dr. Gerecci also performs specialized injections that require more expertise than the standard treatment areas. Injections can be performed to help correct lower lid hollowing or “tear trough deformity”, add structure to the chin and contour the jawline, improve the appearance of the nose via “liquid or non-surgical rhinoplasty”, and fill out hollowing of the temples . Multiple products are available, and during your consultation Dr. Gerecci will review which product she thinks is best for you and why. There are several options from the Juvederm® line including Ultra, Ultra Plus, Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella. From the Restylane® line there is Restylane-L, Lyft, Silk, Refyne, and Defyne. From Revanesse® there is Versa.
