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 for up to 4 months.
Dysport™, from Galderma, is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and crows feet for a short period of time in adults younger than 65 years of age.
Frown lines (wrinkles) happen because the muscles that control facial expression are used often (muscle tightening over and over). After Dysport™ is injected into the muscles that control facial expression, the medicine stops the tightening of these muscles for up to 4 months.
Restylane®, from Galderma, is a safe cosmetic dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that naturally occurs in your body. Free from animal products, this limits the risks of possible allergic reactions. This filler restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, making this an ideal product for the nasolabial folds (the deep ridges occurring between your nose and mouth area). Restylane is also great for providing beautiful lip fullness.
Restylane Lyft® is now approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. This is in addition to treating moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).
Juvéderm Ultra® from Allergan Inc., is a gel like product with a smooth consistency made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvéderm® is injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). It is also a wonderful choice for restoring fullness to lips.
Juvéderm ™Ultra Plus, from Allergan Inc., is an injectable gel that restores volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. Juvéderm Ultra Plus injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. The difference between Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus is particle size and the depth of placement, with Ultra Plus being larger and placed deeper.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first filler to be FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile for up to 2 years. As we age, we loose the fat pads in our cheek area, so the volume loss results in a more aged appearance. This is the perfect filler for bringing back some facial youthfulness.
Juvéderm® is a the newest filler from Allergan, the makers of Botox. Juvederm Volbella adds definition to the lips.
Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine is the latest advancement in the Juvéderm® range of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lips and mouth area. It is a smooth gel that is injected into the lips or around the mouth area, addressing the fine lines around the mouth. We use an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year.
Do you have a double chin? Kybella may be the perfect treatment for you. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. It is good for mild to moderate chin fullness.
