Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles. The most common use is to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. The best time to start injectables is before your wrinkles appear. Injectables are also a preventative treatment.
Dysport like Botox is a neurotoxin that relaxes your facial muscles to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Juvederm is a dermal filler that is a long-lasting, non-surgical option to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Juvederm contains a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is naturally found in the body. Fillers that include HA are a top choice for patients.
Restylane is also a dermal filler that has HA and corrects facial volume loss. Restylane adds volume beneath the skin where collagen and other tissue have been depleted.
Kybella is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called "double chin."
One of the most significant advantages of Kybella injections is that the fat removal results of the treatment will last a lifetime. Individual physiologies vary, but most adults stop being able to grow new fat cells when they reach the age of 25.
To achieve the desired results, two to four treatments may be needed. Noticeable results may appear in about six weeks following your final treatment. Your skin continues to improve for about six months.
The injectable for you will depend upon your personal needs, goals, and lifestyle. Our aesthetician will recommend the best option.
