Botox / Xeomin
Years of squinting, laughing, frowning, and worrying can lead to deep wrinkles around and between the eyes. Botox® can significantly reduce or even eliminate these lines in as little as 3 days, with maximum benefits seen within 10-14 days. Treatments often last 3 to 4 months.
A Botox® treatment involves injecting a specific muscle leading to the wrinkles with a very fine needle. During treatment, you will experience a minimal pin-prick that does not require anesthetic. Immediately after treatment, you may resume normal activity. Side effects are usually mild and temporary. Mild bruising is sometimes seen and goes away within 2-3 days. In rare cases, there can be a slight drooping of an eyelid or mild asymmetry of expression, which can easily be corrected.
As you age, your body stops producing a naturally volumizing substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds, like those “laugh lines” around your mouth. JUVEDERM® injectable gel replaces the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is also FDA approved as an injectable for the lips, whether your goal is to smooth out wrinkles or give a more “plump” look. A breakthrough in HA dermal fillers, JUVEDERM® is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved to last up to 1 year with just 1 treatment. Everyone will notice, but no one will know. You can experience the benefits of JUVEDERM® in a quick, in-office procedure. Your healthcare professional eases JUVEDERM® under your skin to instantly smooth out the wrinkles and folds on your face. You’ll see the difference immediately!
Subtle lift. Beauty breakthrough.
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
What makes Juvederm® different?
While other HA fillers have a more granular consistency, JUVEDERM® injectable gel is the first smooth-consistency HA gel. This is due to an innovative manufacturing process called HYLACROSS‘” technology. HYLACROSS‘” gives JUVEDERM® its unique smooth-gel properties as well as an optimal gel structure that holds up over time.

Put Your Best Chin Forward with Kybella.
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
Kybella could be right for you if:
- You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You don’t want to have surgery
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
How Does Kybella Work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
BELOTERO BALANCE® injectable gel is a prescription injection that is used to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds as well as other moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles around your lips and mouth.1
Clinically proven safe and effective, BELOTERO BALANCE1-4:
- Helps smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines and wrinkles
- Feels natural to the touch
- Maintains normal movement and facial expressions
- Is a quick, easy treatment that provides immediate, noticeable results
- Requires little to no downtime
What is the difference between BELOTERO BALANCE and other fillers?
BELOTERO BALANCE is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to integrate into facial skin tissue. The unique manufacturing process for BELOTERO BALANCE yields a soft and cohesive gel that, once injected, instantly fills the skin to help smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles. While the product is versatile enough to handle moderate nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), it may be an ideal option for treating delicate areas such as etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above and around the lips).
Xeomin® is used for the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. Xeomin® is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows, without altering your natural expressions or features.
Xeomin® is brought to you by Merz Aesthetics, a leading pharmaceutical company in the United States focusing primarily on the treatment of dermatological and aesthetic conditions. Xeomin® has been used for years in over 20 countries and is now available in the USA. It is an FDA approved drug and competes with BOTOX andDysport®, which also uses the Botulinum A protein. According to the Dermatology Times, “Xeomin is unit to unit equivalent with Botox.” This means the number of units of Xeomin that will be injected will be equivalent to what you previously used with Botox.
Xeomin® is a formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvement in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Xeomin® may be comparable to your first use.
Long-lasting fillers can be used for correcting wrinkles, enhancing facial contours, or rebuilding facial volume loss due to atrophy and aging. RADIESSE® is a safe dermal filler that does more than just fill in lines and wrinkles – it volumizes and helps create collagen.
What sets Radiesse apart from other dermal fillers? The answer is in its durability, longevity, and versatility. The unique composition of Radiesse provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. This is because Radiesse is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. The microspheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows, and this produces the desired long-term effect. These unique advantages make Radiesse the ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring.
