BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA)
Botox® is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth facial lines in people 18 and older. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Botox® is used to minimize the frown lines between the eyes, the horizontal lines in the central area of the forehead, and the crow's feet at the corners of the eyes.
It is also used to lift the eyebrow area creating a mini brow-lift and to minimize or decrease the dimpled skin (peau d'orange) of the chin area. Botox® works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause the persistent lines that have developed over time. One 10-minute treatment with a few tiny injections and within 3-10 days there's noticeable improvement with complete effect at 10-14 days. Effects last between 4-6 months typically. With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why BOTOX® Cosmetic has been chosen by millions of women and their doctors.
The only FDA-approved alternative to Botox®. It is similar in effect to Botox Cosmetic®.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years. It's different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
Juvederm® and Restylane™
Injectable fillers are used to fill in the unsightly lines and furrows that are present on our faces, restoring volume and fullness to the skin. As we age, the natural support layers in the skin break down resulting in the formation of wrinkles. The injectable fillers that we use, Juvederm(R) and Restylane™, are made of a naturally occurring substance (hyaluronic acid) which is used to correct these lines or to restore volume, creating a smoother, more pleasing appearance. The FDA has approved them for injection into the skin for the correction of facial wrinkles and lines. In addition, they have been used to enhance the appearance and fullness of lips. JUVEDERM® is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you'll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. Everyone will notice, but no one will know.
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.” It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area and in children less than 18 years of age.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.
