Botox and Fillers
Botox is a minimally invasive, quick procedure done with a few tiny injections administered by a licensed and trained health care professional. Botox blocks the release of a chemical that causes the frown lines between the brows to contract, enabling them to relax. The entire procedures takes approximately 10 minutes with no downtime afterward. Millions of men and women of all skin colors and ethnicities have benefited by being treated with Botox!
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.
XEOMIN® is used in facial aesthetics to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes and crows feet. It contains botulinum toxin type A which is a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is also sometimes referred to as incobotulinumtoxinA. Botulinum toxin type A , the active ingredient in XEOMIN, acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume. RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler works immediately so the results are instant. Once injected, RADIESSE Volumizing Filler adds the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. The production of natural collagen continues for several months, which extends beyond the initial effect of RADIESSE. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.
JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that is used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. In just one treatment, you will achieve smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. JUVÉDERM® XC is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved 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. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume.
BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. It softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you. Belotero Balance is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds allowing immediate and smooth correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as the nasolabial folds which are the smile lines around the mouth, and gentle enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines which are thin lines that appear above the lip line.
Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to instantly, visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds or add fullness to your lips. It can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
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.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.
Dysport® is used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
