BOTOX and Juvederm®

iStock_000013942060XSmallBOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport are both FDA-approved injectables used to treat blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm, misaligned eyes and even neurotrophic corneal disease. These products are also commonly utilized to diminish undesirable skin lines to give a more smooth and youthful appearance.

Dramatic results can be achieved with both products. Injections selectively relax facial muscles so they do not contract. There is no downtime and injections only take a few minutes.

Although BOTOX® and Dysport are similar in their function to combat wrinkles, they do have different dosages and side effects. Our cosmetic team will help you decide which product is right for you.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are another approach used more and more to help reduce some of the skin changes associated with aging and correct lines around the mouth. These fillers include Restylane®, Juvederm®, Radiesse®, Perlane®, Sculptra and Collagen, which are injected to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, scar impressions, enhance lips and tissue volume.

Restylane is a clear, natural dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin, correcting moderate to severe wrinkles. The filler is made from non-animal based hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body and no skin testing is needed.

Perlane is a thicker hyaluronic acid injectable dermal filler that has been used to soften wrinkles and facial lines and popular filler for lip augmentation, facial depressions and facial scarring.

Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid injectable gel used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. This long-lasting filler will help reverse the signs of aging.

Radiesse is a dermal filler that restores a natural, youthful look. This filler is made of calcium-based microspheres in a gel that is injected into nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

Microdermabrasion & Chemical Peels

Microdermabrasion gently diminishes the appearance of fine lines and age spots. It also stimulates the skin to increase collagen production for overall improved skin tone and clarity.

Chemical peels are used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation.
