Botox & Dysport
BOTOX is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows for a short period of time.
Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults less than 65 years of age.
VOLUMA 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.
JUVÉDERM is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Restylane can be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years and 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.
Dermal Fillers work in a similar way to Collagen, by “filling in the gaps” where skin firmness has deteriorated. As well as softening lines, the uplifting effect can be used to augment your lips and to contour your face.
Over time, our bodies lose their form because of weakening muscular and connective tissue as well as physical inactivity. This loss of shape and volume can be especially prevalent in the buttocks, which begin to sag because of the lack of supporting tissue. In addition to causing a lax look of the skin, the loss of volume can lead to a lessened ability to support your own weight because the buttocks are heavily involved in stabilizing the body’s core.
