Dysport

For men and women, Dysport is an exciting new alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetics.   Dysport is particularly effective at treating glabellar lines, frown lines between the eyebrows. Like BOTOX®, Dysport treats dynamic wrinkles, those caused by the repeated movement of your facial muscles, and is made with a purified form of botulinum toxin. Dysport is FDA-approved and thoroughly tested for safety.Results may be seen sooner with Dysport; within one to two days of treatment as opposed to three to five days as with BOTOX®. In addition, Dysport may last longer, with an average of four to six months as opposed to three to four months as with BOTOX®. Dysport can also be a good alternative for patients who have developed a tolerance to BOTOX®

Xeomin Aesthetic®

Xeomin Aesthetic® is the latest treatment with botulinum toxin type A, the same active compound found in popular products like Botox Cosmetic and Dysport. Xeomin is an injectable that also reduces wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily relaxing the muscle.

Xeomin Aesthetic® contains just one ingredient: botulinum toxin A. Unlike its competitors, Xeomin is a “naked injectable,” meaning that it does not contain any additives or extras. The major benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to Xeomin because there are simply less ingredients in the solution for the body to create resistance to.

The most common area of treatment is frown lines between the eyes but usage in other areas is common. It may also be used to treat excessive underarm sweating. Xeomin Aesthetic® temporarily reduces the muscular contractions that cause wrinkles resulting in the overlying skin becoming smoother.

It is most effective at smoothing the lines caused by years of moving these muscles on a regular basis. Several tiny Xeomin Aesthetic® injections are placed directly into the muscles responsible for these lines and wrinkles. Xeomin Aesthetic® treatment generally lasts for three to four months. Regular treatments every few months are recommended for longer lasting results.

Injectable fillers help smooth and remove deep wrinkles and folds in the face. Fillers can augment thin or uneven lips. Results are immediate, and the look is soft and natural. Areas for treatment include nasolabial folds, cheeks, around the eyes, lips and wrinkles around the mouth. Fillers are used to treat folds and creases on the face caused by loss of volume and hollowing in the skin due to the aging process, effects of gravity and repetitive facial muscle activity. Our procedures minimize discomfort and our products are the most advanced:

A topical  Lidocaine numbing cream is applied 30 minutes before injection.  Advise injector of allergies to Lidocaine or tendency for fever blisters.

Belotero Balance®

Belotero Balance® is not just any filler. New technology makes Belotero Balance® even easier for healthcare professionals to inject and place where it’s needed most. With a special, patented production process Belotero Balance® is able to fill out the skin more effectively, giving a more natural look and setting new standards in wrinkle reduction.

Belotero Balance® is a gel containing hyaluronan, a natural component of our skin, which helps to keep the skin moist and elastic. The hyaluronan content of the skin diminishes with age, which is a reason why lines begin to appear. Belotero Balance® is a filler which plumps up the wrinkles by replacing the lost hyaluronan.

Belotero Balance® is thinner and more lightweight compared to other HA fillers giving the final injection solution a very high degree of elasticity. So once it is injected, it distributes much more evenly and seamlessly between treated and untreated areas. Belotero can effectively treat many types of wrinkles such as:

  • Frown lines
  • Chin Folds
  • Marionette lines (mouth to chin lines)
  • Smile and laugh lines
  • Earlobes
  • Lips and Philtrum (area between nose and upper lip)
  • It was created for, and especially helps, very fine lines/fissures at upper and lower lip.

Juvederm – JUVÉDERM® XC

Juvederm and Juvederm XC are smooth gel fillers that can be used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. The new XC versions come premixed with lidocaine to help make the procedure as comfortable as possible. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC comes in two versions, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC a softer gel used for lip augmentation and mild to moderated facial wrinkles and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC which is a stiffer gel used for moderate to severe facial wrinkles needing more support such as nasal labial folds, cheeks and marionette lines,

Restylane® and Perlane®

Restylane (Restylane Silk and Restylane Lyft) and Perlane are FDA-approved cosmetic dermal fillers from Medicis. They are both composed of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your body that helps to provide fullness and elasticity. Over time, skin loses natural hyaluronic acid, but injections of dermal fillers like Restylane® & Perlane® are able to help fill the wrinkles and folds caused by this. This process from which they are made, though, allows them to be injected in places where other fillers cannot be injected. These fillers are used most often in the nasolabial folds (the parentheses from your nose to the corners of your mouth), under the eyes and in the upper cheeks, and in the lips.

Radiesse

Radiesse wrinkle treatment is composed of very small, smooth calcium hydroxylapitite microspheres, which are suspended in a water-based gel. Calcium hydroxylapitite is a mineral component that occurs naturally in the bones and teeth.In the class of dermal fillers, Radiesse, an FDA-approved dermal filler, is unique as it supplements the skin’s own depleted collagen and stimulates new collagen production in and around the treated area, which encourages longer-lasting results. Within a year of an initial Radiesse injection, the body absorbs the Radiesse and leaves in its place the body’s own naturally-formed collagen.Typically, Radiesse treatments take 30 – 60 minutes, depending on the area treated.  Using an ultra-fine needle, the dermal filler is injected below the surface of the skin to add volume to the skin.  Radiesse treatments are comfortable for most people.  Following Radiesse treatments, normal activities can be resumed and makeup may be applied a few hours later.

Sculptra®

Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance. Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person. Within the deep dermis, 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 has been depleted over time. The result? Sculptra Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects while restoring natural collagen.
