BOTOX & Fillers
BOTOX Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there's a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between brows, which can last up to 4 months. Results may vary.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
In 2005, almost 3.3 million procedures were performed with FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic
Juvéderm™ Ultra/Ultra Plus XC Injectable Gel
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvéderm™ injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen! Recently approved by the FDA, Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps 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).
Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm™ compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.* And, almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm™ injectable gel and another dermal filler* preferred Juvéderm™! In addition, Juvéderm™ injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
As you age, it's not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add lift to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
If you have been looking for a natural-looking and feeling lip filler to enhance the fullness of your lips and reduce lines around the mouth, look no further! Your questions have finally been answered! We are proud to be introducing Volbella. Volbella is the latest FDA-approved injectable added to the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers. This non-surgical lip augmentation treatment is designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also known as perioral rhytids or perioral lines. Perioral lines were previously difficult to treat, so we are excited about this new treatment option for our patients.
Volbella is a dermal filler used to define lips and for the correction of fine wrinkles around the lips. This temporary filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid and does not require a skin test before your injections. The smaller Hylauronic Acid particle size in Volbella allows your cosmetic injector to treat fine lines without getting a full look in these delicate areas.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC, the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved for the correction of facial folds. Juvéderm Vollure™ XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler to smooth facial wrinkles, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines in adults over the age of 21.
Like Juvéderm Volbella®, this filler is created using VYCROSS® technology, which uses hyaluronic acid to create a smooth, long-lasting gel. This specially made gel texture can add subtle volume to the skin for beautiful, natural-looking results.
Kybella is an injectable treatment. It works by breaking up and destroying select fat cells where it is injected. To reach the fat, Kybella must be placed at the correct depth. The great thing about Kybella is that it leaves the surface of the skin untouched and unaffected.
Here are the advantages of choosing this groundbreaking injectable: • Completely non-surgical • Minimally invasive – a series of painless injections without the need for anesthesia • Provides an effective alternative to chin liposuction • Get back to your normal activities immediately after your appointment The only way to know if it is right for you is to visit our practice for a consultation. We look forward to discussing your aesthetic goals and helping you decide if Kybella or another treatment will be a good fit for what you want to achieve.
