Botox®

Botox® is a simple non-surgical cosmetic procedure to smooth the deep, persistent lines between your brows that develop as you age. Botox® is a relatively short cosmetic treatment, involving tiny injections of a special protein-based cosmetic injectable. It relaxes the muscles that cause the age lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to four months*. The Botox® treatment is safe – it is FDA approved and has been extensively tested.

LAVIV

LAVIV is an autologous cellular product used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe nasolabial folds, or the smile lines. An autologous product is one that is obtained from the same individual which means that your LAVIV is made specially for you from your own collagen-producing fibroblast skin cells. It is the first and only FDA-approved individualized therapy that helps polish the smile lines.

Dysport

Dysport is a cosmetic injectable treatment (FDA-approved) that reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead. It is similar to Botox® and injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. The difference between Dysport and Botox®, however, is that, Dysport can diffuse muscles one to three centimeters from the injection point, while Botox® can only diffuse as far as one centimeter, allowing for results that reach further facial areas with just a single injection.

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm® is touted as the “next generation” of cosmetic injectables. It gels gently smooth wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose and restore a youthful volume to the face. Made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to provide volume and support to the skin, Juvéderm® is especially effective on smile lines and “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth. Treatment takes only 15 minutes with immediate results and no downtime. Results typically last about 6-9 months*.

Restylane®

Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic injectable that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds , such as nasolabial folds. Restylane® is made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body. Restylane® maintains its shape using the body’s own moisture. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is hydrophilic or “water loving.” This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide lasting results.

Restylane® Silk

Restylane® Silk is a natural cosmetic injectable that is the first and only FDA-approved product that has been designed specifically to enhance the lips and smooth lines around the mouth.

Perlane®

Perlane® is a cosmetic injectable used to treat deep facial lines, augment the lips and contour the cheeks and chin. Made by the same company that produces Restylane®, Perlane® contains purified hyaluronic acid, a sugar found naturally in the body that works with collagen to keep the skin smooth and supple. It is hypoallergenic and so does not require a pre-treatment skin test. With its unique ability to bind with water, Perlane® continues to perform up to 60% longer than collagen.

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is a cosmetic 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, so it carries little risk of allergic reaction. Radiesse® can be used on many areas of the body, including the lips, nasolabial folds, peri-oral lines, depressed scars and oral commissures.

Sculptra®

Sculptra® is an anti-aging treatment, a cosmetic injectable that gives natural-looking, long-lasting results over time. With an average of three injection treatments, spread over the course of several months, the Sculptra® procedure helps replace lost collagen, and correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. Sculptra® is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a safe, synthetic, biocompatible, biodegradable material, injected below the surface of the skin in the fat loss area.

Bellafill (Formerly ArteFill)

Bellafill is a non-absorbable cosmetic injectable used for smile correction. Bellafill is the only FDA-approved injectable smile correction treatment of its kind. Bellafill has a dual-acting formula consisting of a combination of 20% Bellafill Precision-Filtered Microspheres and 80% Bellafill Purified Bovine Collagen. The result is the immediate visible smile correction of facial wrinkles and folds in as few as one or two treatment sessions with no downtime*.

PRP/Selphyl

The Selphyl System is an anti-aging procedure which allows physicians to prepare an autologous Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) using a small amount of the patient’s blood, which is then used as a cosmetic injectable. Because it uses the patient’s blood, the Selphyl treatment is also known as the “Vampire Filler”  or “Vampire Facelift.”

Xeomin®

Xeomin® is an FDA-approved injection treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by overactivity of certain facial muscles. It is similar to Botox® and Dysport and is injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting.

KYBELLA®

KYBELLA® is a non-invasive approach for the reduction of fat around the chin, upper neck and submental area, commonly known as the “double chin”. According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 68% of Americans are bothered by their “double chin”. The KYBELLA® injection contains a natural molecule which eats away at fat while leaving all other cells healthy and intact. KYBELLA® is FDA approved and clinically indicated for treatment of subcutaneous submental fat in the chin or neck.
