Complimentary Botox or Filler Consultation
Restylane® is a FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that restores volume to the skin, lifting and smoothing out wrinkles and other fine lines. This procedure is most commonly used to treat the glabellar lines (between the forehead) and the nasolabial folds. It can also be used to add volume and shape to the lips.
Since Restylane is made from a natural substance found in the body, no pre-testing is required. Restylane produces results that last for several months through its unique ability to bind with water and remain in the skin. The results of this procedure are visible right away and can last for several months, depending on the condition of the individual patient’s skin.
Also available from the Restylane line are Restylane Refyne to help smooth moderate lines and Restylane Defyne to lift deep wrinkles—both working to provide lift while still maintaining the natural form of your facial expressions like laughs, frowns, and kisses.
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel is a safe, effective gel that restores volume to the skin and smoothes away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm is the first FDA-approved dermal filler proven safe and effective for darker skin tones. The Juvéderm gel is made of hyaluronic acid with a smooth consistency, allowing for easy injections and instant, natural-looking results. There is no pre-testing needed for this procedure.
Topical or injectable anesthesia may be used during this procedure to numb the treatment area and minimize any potential discomfort. The results of this procedure are available right away and can usually last for up to a year, the longest results available from any hyaluronic acid product.
Juvéderm® Volbella is an injectable gel that is used for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral rhytids in adults over the age of 21. This FDA-approved injection helps increase lip fullness and soften “smoker’s lines” around the mouth.
This lip augmentation can provide results for up to one year.
Juvederm® Vollure™ XC
In an effort to provide even more options to meet the growing range of patient needs, Allergan is once again evolving and expanding their hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler technology with the launch of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC. Because JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC delivers subtle, soft volume, it is for the nasolabial folds, which are the most requested dermal filler treatment area. About half of all dermal filler patients receive treatment in this part of the face.
Sculptra® is an injectable filler that restores facial fat lost by the effects of lipoatrophy, including sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, and other indentations. This filler is injected below the surface of the skin in the areas of fat loss. The Sculptra injection consists of an alpha hydroxyl acid called poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA. This product is safe, synthetic, biocompatible, biodegradable and long-lasting. No pre-testing is required for Sculptra treatments.
The results of Sculptra will appear gradually after the injection, with most patients able to achieve their desired results after just one treatment session. The length of the results can vary from patient to patient but often last for up to two years.
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine for adults used to help reduce the profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. This fat area is called submental fat and is more commonly referred to as “double chin.”
KYBELLA works by utilizing Deoxycholic acid which is a natural molecule in the body that helps with breaking down and absorbing fat. Once fat cells are destroyed they can no longer accumulate fat which gives you great, long-lasting results. KYBELLA is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin.
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 and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume 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.
Just like Restylane®, Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin. The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. These are typically mild in severity and resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds.
What makes Perlane different from Restylane?
What makes Perlane different than Restylane is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection, which means it’s a good choice for more severe facial wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin. In three clinical studies 63%, 71% and 75% of patients maintained improvement for six months after just one Perlane treatment.
