Botox® is a trademark of a medication that is injected in the face to temporarily decrease wrinkles and creases by interfering with the nerve impulses that cause the underlying muscle to contract and cause the wrinkle. These lines and wrinkles are often the result of repeated facial expressions that eventually cause the muscle to remain contracted even when your face is at rest.
Dysport® is a trademark of a medication that works like Botox®. It is injected into the skin to safely interfere with the nerve impulses that cause facial muscles to contract and create wrinkles. These lines and wrinkles often form as a result of repeated facial expressions so that the muscles remain contracted even at rest.
Juvederm® is a gel-based dermal filler that is injected into the skin to soften lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face and neck. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which is already contained in the body. For this reason, no allergy tests are required. Juvederm® is effective on moderate to severe wrinkles on the cheeks and the nasolabial folds that form from the nose to the corners of the mouth. It can also be used for temporary lip augmentation to make thin lips fuller and poutier. The results are immediate, and Juvederm® injections usually last 6-9 months, although some patients have seen the results last as long as a year.
Juvéderm® Voluma XC
Juvederm® Voluma XC is a dermal filler injectable that improves the loss of facial volume primarily in the cheek area. This non-surgical treatment can also sometimes be used to fill hollows in the face and subtly lift the mid-face.
It is not appropriate for fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm® Voluma is injected deeper into the tissue than Juvederm®, which allows it to support the skin’s structure. A key advantage to Juvederm® Voluma is that the results can last up to two years, and you will see the results immediately.
Protégé Skin Tightening
Protégé treatments are designed to leave your skin feeling healthier with a more youthful glow by delivering focused radiofrequency energy to the skin which heats the deeper layers of skin in a controlled generally pain-free manner. This heat causes the skin tissue to contract and stimulates new collagen production in the process. Results continue to improve over four to eight weeks after treatment as the new collagen is produced. The result is smoother, firmer skin. Protégé is safe for use on many areas of the body and face, including the neck, back, midsection, thighs and arms. Most patients can return to their routine schedule immediately after a Protégé treatment looking and feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that improves the signs of aging without surgery. It is an injectable that corrects nasolabial folds, marionette lines, hollows of the eyelids, fine lines above the upper lip, and smile lines around the mouth. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the body, there is no need for allergy tests.
Vanquish Fat Removal
Vanquish is an advanced, non-surgical, no-touch fat removal technique that uses “focused field radiofrequency” energy technology to destroy fat cells and slim your waistline or other areas without surgery, anesthesia, or incisions. It is a body contouring deep-tissue heating method that tightens skin, reduces wrinkles on the body, and may minimally decrease the appearance of cellulite without causing extreme discomfort. Vanquish is FDA-approved for deep tissue heating which can result in fat reduction on the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, arms, and legs.
