BOTOX® is a safe, FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that has been popular among healthy American men and women since its FDA approval in 2002. Millions of people have undergone Botox injections to help smooth facial lines and restore a younger appearance. BOTOX is injected into the facial muscles, helping to block nerve impulses and relax the muscles. Without contracting facial muscles, lines become less evident and are prevented from worsening.
BOTOX is used primarily to reduce frown lines and crow’s feet, but it can also be used to soften forehead furrows, lessen neck bands, soften a square jawline, hyperhidrosis, and more.
Dysport® is an injectable similar to BOTOX®, and it works in the same way–by blocking nerve signals of the muscles. The muscle is not able to contract when this happens, and the resulting relaxation of the muscle lessens wrinkles in that area.
Dysport can be used in the same areas as BOTOX. You and your provider can decide which product is best for you.
Juvederm treatments are cosmetic injections used to fill in sunken facial features, such as nasolabial folds and thin or aging lips. The filler is a smooth gel made from hyaluronic acid and appears smooth and natural, rather than hard, stiff or lumpy.
The hyaluronic acid binds to water molecules and gives your skin a soft and youthful look by filling in mild to moderate lines and folds and temporarily re-contouring the face. Outcomes vary from person to person, but most patients achieve immediate results that reduce the appearance of lines, folds and hollowed areas of the face for up to one year.
Like other Juvederm® injections, Juvederm® Voluma XC dermal filler, offers a way to fill in different areas of the face, giving them a smooth and natural appearance. This specific filler is designed to add more volume to your cheeks and other areas in the mid-face and works to lift and contour specifically in those areas. This filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance present in your body naturally, which binds to water molecules, giving your skin a soft and youthful look. This treatment is the only FDA approved filler that can fix the loss of volume in your cheeks and mid-face for up to two years.
Restylane® is a type of dermal filler that adds volume, fullness and corrects wrinkles like ones from your nose to the corners of your mouth. It can also add volume, fullness, and definition to your lips. It uses hyaluronic acid that acts like your body’s natural hyaluronic acid, which binds to water molecules and gives a plump, voluminous appearance. Both Restylane® and Restylane® Silk are FDA approved for achieving more full, defined lips.
Restylane® Silk helps achieve your perfect smile and is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip enhancement and smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the mouth. Silk filler uses hyaluronic acid to offer full and voluminous lips; the hyaluronic acid particles are smaller and smoother than other products yielding smooth, natural results.
Silk also works beautifully as an under eye filler!
Sculptra is the first facial injectable that gives subtle results over time by replacing lost collagen and giving you a more natural-looking appearance. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic is an average of 3 injection sessions over a few months and can last up to 2 years. [Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.]
Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid (a synthetic material that has been used safely for decades in resorbable stitches and as an injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries.) It is biocompatible and biodegradable. Sculptra helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen.
Kybella is the first FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment for submental fat, or a “double chin”. Kybella is a prescription medication that contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a substance naturally produced by the body to help with fat absorption. When it is injected directly into the area under the chin, it effectively destroys fat cells in the area. The remains of the treated fat cells are eliminated by the body and the transition between the neck and jawline becomes slimmer and more defined. The treatment can be tailored to the unique needs of each patient, ensuring superior results with every treatment.
Kybella can be used to treat men and women with any skin type and tone. The treatment is generally recommended for patients that have some pinchable fat underneath the chin that affects their appearance. Patients undergoing Kybella treatment must commit to the full series of treatment sessions in order to see the best possible results from their treatment. Usually, 3-4 treatments are needed.
