Injectables & Fillers
General information about injectables & fillers to go here.
Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to improve the look of moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows, across the forehead or at the side of the eyes — crow’s feet. It is temporary, lasting 3 months or more.
Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. Dysport can block the signal from the nerve to the muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
The Juvederm® family, including Juvederm® Ultra XC, Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC, Juvederm Vollure™ XC and Juvederm Volbella® XC, uses hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found in the human body to serve as ‘filler’ to improve deep facial wrinkles and creases, restoring the fullness and volume of the skin and lips. Results can last 6 months or more depending on location and the filler used.
KYBELLA ® is a prescription medicine used to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fullness below the chin (submental fat), also called ‘double chin.’ The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Radiesse is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. Injected through a small needle under the skin, this filler works immediately to add volume. The benefits of Radiesse continue over time by naturally stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The results have been shown to last a year or more, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.
The Restylane family of products includes Restylane, Restylane® Defyne, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® Silk. These products can be used to add volume and fullness to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane and Restylane Lyft may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging. Used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, Scultra works over time to help to stimulate collagen. The results can last over 2 years.
Juvederm Voluma® XC, injectable gel is the first and only FDA-approved filler 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 in patients over the age of 21.
