What is Botox?
Botox cosmetics is a purified protein. It is a non surgical-administered treatment that can temporally reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in patients 18 to 65 years of age. During treatment, very low doses of Botox cosmetics are administered via a few tiny injections into the muscles that cause stubborn lines between the brows, also known as the '11 lines'.
What is Restylane?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. Its job is to help provide fullness and elasticity. Over time, skin loses hyaluronic acid. And as it diminishes, skin loses volume, increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. Restylane® provides rejuvenating cosmetic beauty treatments for a natural, younger-looking you. RestylaneÂ® is the world's best-selling dermal filler. It is well tolerated, nonsurgical and long lasting (usually around six months).Â Your individual results may vary. Restylane® is injected into the skin to restore volume to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane® gives natural-looking results by restoring your skin's fullness.
What is Perlane?
Improve the contour of your facial skin with this exciting new dermal filler. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane can be used to improve the contour of facial skin and to reduce wrinkles, folds, scars and other facial skin depressions. Perlane is a "mid-dermal" hyaluronic acid filler product. As a sister product to Restylane, Perlane is designed for more pronounced facial folds and wrinkles. It has been used to soften wrinkles and facial folds of patients around the world. It is also a popular filler for lip augmentation, facial depressions and facial scarring. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane supplements the body's natural supply, which becomes depleted with age. This filler is biodegradable so its effects are not permanent. The results of a Perlane filler treatment tend to last 6 months to a year. This is much longer than the typical results of collagen injections, which may only last 3 to 6 months. Your individual results may vary.
What is Radiesse?
With RADIESSE® wrinkle filler, you welcome back your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. That's because RADIESSE wrinkle filler's unique formulation stimulates collagenesis - "the production of new collagen" which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients. It's also why more and more cosmetic surgeons, estheticians, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE wrinkle filler for long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm® is from the makers of Botox® Cosmetic. It is a next-generation dermal filler that instantly restores your skin's volume to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. As we age, our skin volume diminishes causing wrinkles to form. Juvederm® is made of a naturally occurring substance in our skin called hyaluronic acid. This substance simply restores your skin to its more youthful volume, smoothing wrinkles away. The ultra smooth consistency of Juvederm® provides a more natural look and feel to help correct facial wrinkles such as the "smile lines" or "parentheses" -€ (line between your mouth & nose) and plumps your lips for a fuller look.
What is DySport?
Dysport is an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with procerus and corrugator muscle activity in adult patients under 65 years of age. Basically, it is an injectable used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines in the face. It is made using small amounts of abobotulinumtoxinA. Used in very small, controlled amounts, the toxin relaxes the muscles in the face thereby allowing the overlying skin to relax.
