Juvederm® & Restylane®

Juvederm® and Restylane® are injectable gels used for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. As skin ages, the production of hyaluronic acid (HA) diminishes. Juvederm® and Restylane® are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers contain a molecule that is common to all humans. Therefore, an allergic reaction is extremely unlikely.

There are many ways to use hyaluronic fillers. It can be used to increase the fullness of areas of the face that characteristically “deflates” with age such as the cheeks and brows. It can also be used to fill hollowness beneath the eyes and correct dark circles. It is also used to add volume to lips. The only limitation is that in some areas, the filler will only last only 6 to 12 months. During your consultation, we will discuss with you which filler is the right option for you based on your particular needs.

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that reduces wrinkles, creases and scars by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply. Composed of microspheres in a biocompatible gel, Radiesse® is made from the same minerals found in our bones, Radiesse® is most commonly used in the face on the nasolabial folds (areas to the sides of the nose), around the corners of the mouth and on depressed scars. Treatments require only topical anesthetic. Side effects such as swelling or bruising are minimal and should fade within a couple of days. Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last a year to 15 months.

Sculptra®

Sculptra® Aesthetic is not an overnight miracle or intended to be a quick-fix beauty treatment. It is long lasting. Sculptra® Aesthetic is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time, replacing lost collagen, and giving you a more natural-looking appearance.

A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to 2 years.*

It begins working deep within the dermis, where your skin’s collagen structure is reinforced. Sculptra® Aesthetic helps to replace depleted collagen. A reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness to shallow or deep facial wrinkles and folds. Sculptra® Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles and folds. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last up to 2 years.*

Sculptra® Aesthetic is made from poly-L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid consists of a synthetic material, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body as it works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used safely for decades in dissolvable stitches and as a facial injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries.

*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.

BELOTERO®

Kybella®

Kybella is an injectable solution of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in your body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. During your consultation, your injection specialist will determine the best treatment plan for you based on your desired changes. Most patients require 2 to 4 treatment sessions spaced no less than one month apart, but up to 6 treatments may be necessary to achieve your goals.

Once Kybella is injected into the submental fat under your chin, it instantly destroys fat cells. After the fat cells are destroyed, the cells are unable to accumulate or store additional fat. The results are long-lasting and noticeable shortly after treatment. This non-invasive procedure requires minimal downtime and is an excellent alternative to a neck lift surgery to restore the contour of your jawline.

If you are concerned by your double chin, Kybella injection treatments may be the solution you.
