Anti-wrinkle injections such as Botox and Dysport work beneath the surface to temporarily reduce the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe wrinkles. This non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment helps relax your wrinkles and lines to refresh your skin with little to no downtime. Although the products are similar, there are some subtle differences.
Botox is made from Botulinum Toxin Type A and relaxes the muscles leading to less wrinkles.
Effects are usually seen within 5-7 days, with peak effect at 14 days.
Treatment is painless and generally lasts 3 to 4 months
Dysport is also made from Botulinum Toxin Type A and relaxes the muscles leading to less wrinkles. Effects are usually seen within 3-5 days, with peak effect at 14 days. Treatment is painless and generally lasts 3 to 4 months.
We work to restore the facial ratios and rebalance the face. As you age, everything starts to deflate and descend causing the lower face to become heaver and appear older. We work to flip the ratios and rebalance the face!
As we age, we lose facial volume by loss and redistribution of fat, bone, collagen, and elastin. Collectively, this weakens your skin's inner structure, decreasing it's ability to maintain elasticity and moisture. Facial volume loss may appear as hollow temples, sunken-in eye sockets, flattened cheeks, or loose sagging skin around the jawline also known as jowls. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that helps restore volume/youthfulness, soften the appearance of lines, or enhance current features with little to no downtime.
Sculptra®, the most natural way to help you age the best way possible. This product works with your own body to help rebuild lost collagen and elastin. Ultimately, minimizing jowling, temple and facial hollowness, wrinkles, and shadowing.
Beautiful skin is a journey, and as time goes on, it can be harder and harder to keep up. As you age, collagen production diminishes, and your skin doesn’t have the same resiliency and fullness it did in the past.
Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years.
Benefits of Sculptra®
Sculptra® is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems. Sculptra® is injected in or under the facial skin through a small needle for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles. A treatment regimen of Sculptra® consists of up to 4 injection sessions scheduled 3-4 weeks apart. Sculptra® may provide cosmetic correction of facial wrinkles with a Wrinkle Assessment Score of 2, 3, or 4
Radiesse® is a dermal filler made of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres that work immediately upon injection. CaHA is comprised of phosphate and calcium, which occur naturally in the human body. Radiesse® can be used as a volumizing dermal filler for facial folds and provide support in the upper face, in turn reducing skin laxity in the lower face.
A newer and highly effective use for Radiesse® is the technique of hypderdilution. When diluted and injected superficially, Radiesse® acts as a collagen stimulating agent. The Hyperdilute Radiesse® technique combines the filler with saline and lidocaine, thinning the consistency and increasing the volume of product. The Hyperdilute Radiesse® is then injected into the desired area through a thin cannula. This treatment is a favorable alternative to surgical intervention such as facelift or neck and décolleté lift.
Since everyone's chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
