BOTOX AND DYSPORT

BOTOX® and Dysport® are non-surgical, physician-administered aesthetic treatments for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. They are used with people 18 to 65 and work by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause frown lines. As certain emotions are expressed, facial muscles contract and cause a pleating of the overlying skin. When the pleating occurs over a period of time, the lines become more permanent. Treatment with BOTOX and Dysport can visibly soften and smooth those frown lines. Improvement can be seen within days and can last for up to four months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement of appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better one month after treatment.

Juvéderm

Juvéderm, a "next-generation" dermal filler, is an injectable, smooth consistency gel that helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. "Smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds-the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth) are no more when you use Juvéderm, which is made of hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvéderm is also the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

Restylane and Perlane

Restylane and Perlane will help create a natural volume and firmness to your skin. Restylane is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The Restylane gel is injected into your skin to produce a long-lasting, natural enhancement. Restylane is not permanent, so you have the ability to re-evaluate your needs as soon as the initial treatment has worn off. Restylane is gentle and safe for your skin and once it is totally absorbed, Restylane turns into water and carbon dioxide and disappears without leaving any trace in your body.

Restylane and Perlane contain stabilized hyaluronic acid, made by the same biotechnical process. The difference is Perlane is composed of larger gel particles than Restylane and is intended for deeper injection to volumize skin for correcting facial wrinkles and folds.
