INJECTABLES

WRINKLE RELAXERS 

Wrinkle relaxers, aka “neuromodulators” or "neurotoxins", work by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles that cause wrinkling. Wrinkle relaxers are injected with a fine needle directly into the muscles. The most common treatment areas include the forehead, frown lines between the eyebrows and lines around the eyes and mouth, though there are many more areas that can benefit from treatment with wrinkle relaxers.

OUR PREFERRED BRANDS

  • XEOMIN® 

    • ​Xeomin® is a smart toxin with a double-filtered formula that removes unnecessary proteins, so you get only what’s needed for smoother lines, treatment after treatment.

    • The difference between Xeomin and Botox?

      • ​The main difference between Xeomin and Botox is that Xeomin contains a “naked” form of botulinum toxin. Unlike Botox, which contains accessory proteins, Xeomin is designed to deliver the toxin without any protein additives. This purified structure may help prevent antibody resistance, a growing problem that has been seen with injections administered over time.

  • DYSPORT

    • ​Dysport is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with procerus and corrugator muscle activity in adult patients less than 65 years of age

    • Dysport takes effect the quickest with results in 2-3 days. However, it cannot be used in all areas of the face.

DERMAL FILLERS

 

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent. Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.

OUR PREFERRED BRANDS

  • RADIESSE & RADIESSE+

    • Radiesse is unlike most other dermal fillers because it is made from calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a natural compound found throughout the body. Radiesse works by stimulating natural collagen production, which provides the skin with the support and lift it needs to reduce lines and wrinkles.

    • Once injected, Radiesse provides immediate volume correction, but its most potent effect develops over time.

    • Over time, the carrier gel in Radiesse is absorbed, leaving just the tiny CaHA particles. Collagen forms around each sphere, increasing the volume of the targeted area. As such, Radiesse’s true value is in its effects as a bio-stimulatory agent that helps the body to produce its own skin rejuvenation effects.

    • This stimulation of natural collagen production has been shown in clinical studies to continue for up to 7-8 weeks after the Radiesse injection, accompanied by ongoing improvements in cosmetic effects.

  • RESTYLANE 

    • ​The Restylane family of products is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, which includes Restylane Silk, Lyft, Restylane, Refyne, Defyne, Kysse and Restylane Contour.

    • Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to act like your body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid.

    • Each Restylane product is designed for a specific purpose and is chosen based on the area being treated.

  • BELOTERO

    • Belotero Balance (+) is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler that completely integrates into the skin tissue.3,5

    • While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, Belotero is designed to be a smooth, flexible gel that fills moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips.
