Juvederm® is an FDA approved facial line filler that adds volume and smoothes unwanted lines and wrinkles. This has been proven safe and is minimally invasive with immediate results.
Juvederm® is an injectable gel that smooths out the wrinkles and folds on your face. The results are instant, creating soft, natural looking skin. Juvederm® is typically used to treat:
- Deep nasogenian grooves (the folds between your nose and cheeks)
- Nasolabial folds between the nose and outer corners of the mouth
- Lines around the outer eye (crow’s feet)
- Smile lines
- Thin lips
A member of the Juvederm family of products, Volbella is an FDA-approved injection used to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth and chin. Volbella is also highly effective in filling pitted acne scarring in the face. Volbella is unique in that it blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, which allows it to synthesize volume that can last for up to a year.
Sculptra® is a solution made from a synthetic but biocompatible material that is created from natural sources. Results can last up to two years, although you may need several initial treatments and occasional maintenance touch-ups. Sculptra® is typically used to treat:
- Deep folds between the nose and mouth
- Smile lines
- Lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
- Chin wrinkles
Restylane Lift® is an FDA approved injectable gel for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It adds volume and fullness to your skin, and is commonly used for lip enhancement. Restylane consists of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. Once it’s injected in the skin, it creates volume. Patients typically see redness and swelling immediately after the treatment. This is temporary
XEOMIN® is an FDA approved treatment for reducing frown lines between the eye brows. It is similar to BOTOX®, with the main ingredient being botulinum toxin type A, it is used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. Results typically last up to six months, and patients see a different almost 3-4 days after their appointment.
BOTOX®, a controlled bacterial toxin, is a paralyzing agent injected into muscles to reduce motion. By limiting wrinkle-producing activity, BOTOX® gives the skin a smoother appearance. Our patients find that BOTOX® works extremely well for horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and “crows feet” around the eyes.
BOTOX® injections are minimally invasive. The procedure starts with a fine needle that injects the solution into the targeted area, causing controlled weakening of the muscles. There is little to no downtime after your BOTOX® injections, and your results should last about three to four months.
