BOTOX Cosmetic can help you improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, crows feet and wrinkles in your brow. The treatment requires no downtime and results can last up to 4 months. Most patients use Botox less frequently and/or in smaller doses over time because the wrinkles soften and become less visible, as exaggerated movement diminishes. Initially, you can expect treatments every 3 - 4 months to maintain the desired result. The goal is to eventually only require treatment every six months or so.
Juvéderm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvéderm injectable gel is eased under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. It smooths your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth) as well as restores fullness and youthfulness to your lips.
Kybella is identical to something your body makes called deoxycholic acid, which helps to absorb fat. It works by destroying fat cells. The injectable treatment is an alternative to liposuction or surgery to treat double-chin fat. When injected, it physically destroys the cell membrane of the fat cells and the fat is absorbed into the body. This causes a reduction in the double-chin and an immediate improvement in the under-chin or submental area. Patients can receive more than 50 injections in the submental area and up to six treatments may be administered. Doctors do recommend a gap of one month in between treatments to allow Kybella to work property
Before approving the drug, the FDA looked at the results of two U.S. trials that included more than 1,000 people. Those who got the drug more often saw less fat under the chin. More than 80% of those getting the drug said they noticed some improvement in their chin fat.
Restylane Silk is the newest product to treat those pesky wrinkles around your mouth. It is the softer, thinner sister filler to the classic Restylane, which has been approved since 2005 for the treatment of facial wrinkles and smile lines or the parenthesis lines (nasolabial folds). Setting it apart from other fine line fillers like Belotero, Restylane Silk contains the anesthetic lidocaine to improve comfort during the procedure.
Restylane Silk is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally found sugar molecule in the body. Our natural supply of hyaluronic diminishes over time with age, and fine lines and loss of collagen occurs as a result. Because of its unique small particle size, Restylane Silk can re-deliver this naturally plumping substance to minimize fine vertical smoker’s lines.
In FDA studies, 98% of participants treated with Restylane Silk reported an improvement in lip wrinkles. Over 75% of subjects still showed improvement 6 months after their initial injection. There is no downtime to the procedure, and the treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the only FDA-approved filler, designed to instantly lift the face by restoring volume to the cheek area. What makes Voluma special is its smooth gel formula, providing an unmatched ability to sculpt facial contours. Voluma is composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. When injected under the skin, HA will draw in and hold moisture to plump wrinkles and provide shape to facial features. Juvéderm Voluma XC also encourages the body’s natural production of Collagen, which in turn will continue to improve the skin’s appearance over time. Many clients require multiple syringes for optimal results, but the results can last up to two years, making it a great long term investment in your beauty.
