Our medical staff provides an array of injection services such as Botox®, Juvederm, and fillers that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give your face a smoother, younger appearance.
Neurotoxins, such as Botox®, work by temporarily relaxing the muscles in the face that cause dynamic wrinkles for a subtly refreshed appearance that can improve your whole face. All have been in use for cosmetic and medical indications for decades, and their safety and efficacy are well established.
Botox® is a simple, non-surgical treatment that uses purified proteins (also found in soil and honey) to temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. These purified proteins block the nerve impulse to the muscle that cause wrinkles to form while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
Dysport® is very similar to Botox®, the original Botulinum toxin A treatment for wrinkles. However, recent studies have indicated that it may be more effective for certain types of wrinkles, like crow’s feet.
The difference in Xeomin® is that it does not carry the proteins that are typical of the other products. The potential advantage lies in the lessened likelihood of antibodies being formed to the proteins which – for a very limited number of patients – can render the product ineffective. (This typically is only seen in patients who have used botulinum toxin for an extended period of time.)
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.
Juvederm® Ultra/Ultra Plus XC is a smooth consistency gel made of Hyaluronic acids - a naturally occuring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. They can last up to 1 year.
Juvederm Volbella® XC is made of the same material as Ultra XC except it is tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines. It lasts up to 1 year.
Juvederm Voluma® XC adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance. This is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that can last up to 2 years.
Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines). Restylane® lasts up to 1 year.
Restylane® Lyft can add volume in your cheeks and hands for a smoother, fuller appearance. This product can last up to 1 year.
Belotero® is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that completely integrates into the skin tissue and treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips. This product can last 6 months or longer.
Sculptra® is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments. Sculptra® can last over 2 years.
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
