These are the products we use.
All are FDA approved for cosmetic procedures.
Botox (Onabotulinumtoxin A injection)
Botox is a purified, natural protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is an FDA approved cosmetic prescription that is injected into muscles to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe lines around the eyes (crows feet) and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults (glabellar lines) for patients age 18 and over. It is the most popular treatment used in the world to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Botox cosmetic works by blocking acetylcholine impulses that trigger hyperactive muscle contractions. It is a product of Allergan, and there are over 20 years of successful clinical experience. Botox will last about 3-4 months.
Juvéderm is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler used for injections in the cheek area and creases between the nose and lips (nasolabial folds) to correct age related volume loss and wrinkles. It is also used in the lip and perioral areas for lip augmentation.
Hyaluronic acid, which is the main component in Juvéderm, is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found in the dermis (part of the skin), cartilage, joints, and eyes. It is comprised of cross-linked hyaluronic acid that decelerates the process of degradation in the skin. It delivers nutrients, hydrates the skin by holding in water, and acts as a cushioning agent. Juvéderm will last 9-24 months depending on the filler you choose.
Juvéderm XC, Juvéderm Ultra XC, and JuvédermVoluma XC are available treatments. We will review these products individually during your consultation to determine what is best for you.
Restlyane is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid created by Galderma, and is used very similarly to Juvéderm. It can add volume and fullness to the skin 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 and Restylane Silk may also be used for lip enhancement and lip lines for patients over 21 years of age.
We carry both Restylane and Restylane Silk. Each of these prescriptions will be addressed and discussed to determine which is right for you.
Where Restylane can be used
Deoxycholic acid injection
Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable used to treat the submental fat, or "double chin". This non-surgical treatment is an excellent alternative to traditional surgical methods. Kybella may be a good choice if you find this makes you look older or heavier than you are and you don't want surgery. This area can be very stubborn to reduce despite excellent diet and plenty of exercise.
Kybella's active ingredient is a synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. This molecule helps break down fat. Used in the "double chin" area, this destroys fat cells causing an improvement of fullness in the area. Once fat cells are destroyed, they can't accumulate again, so you won't need further treatments to correct the area once your aesthetic goals are met.
bimatoprost ophthalmic solution
Latisse is a prescription solution used to grow longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. It is applied at night to the upper lash line of each eye. Your lashes will continue to grow as long as you keep up with nightly applications.
