Biological growth factor injections have long been known to have regenerative properties and have been used in sports medicine for years to help speed recovery following surgery. Biological growth factor injections, also colloquially known as “vampire facelifts,” are a great way to turn back the clock on your appearance.
Belotero is a dermal filler that consists primarily of a sugar-based substance that is naturally produced in human skin called hyaluronic acid. By utilizing this soft, gel-like substance, Belotero achieves soft, natural looking results immediately.
Botox is a neuromodulator well known for effectively reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles through its injection into trouble spots, such as forehead “worry” lines, eyebrows, crow’s feet, bunny lines, laugh lines, and much more.
DAXXIFY™️ lasts for up to 6 months (and in some cases 9!), making it the longest lasting injectable neuromodulator available on the aesthetic market. One reason it lasts so long is because thanks to the peptides found in its formula. DAXXIFY™️ is the first and only stabilized peptide-formulated neuromodulator on the market.
Dysport can be a great way to quickly and non-invasively smooth out expression lines, such as frown lines, between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. A typical Dysport injection session lasts less than 20 minutes, and there is no downtime required following treatment.
Jeuveau® is one of the cosmetic injections commonly used to treat frown lines, glabellar lines, expression lines, and other facial fine lines and wrinkles. Sometimes called “NEWTOX” because of its similarity to BOTOX®, Jeuveau® is much better suited for certain types of wrinkles.
Juvederm is a popular hyaluronic acid gel filler that provides instant volume and rejuvenation to the skin. Thinning lips are one of the main “tells” for a person’s age, because we lose plumpness in the lips as we get older. With Juvederm, people can achieve fuller, plumper lips non-surgically and virtually risk-free.
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical solution that is designed to tackle each of these areas with the best injectable treatments available. For example, Botox may be injected around the brow to reduce and prevent worry lines and creases, while Juvederm may be injected into the cheeks and under eye area to restore volume and Radiesse may be injected into the lips to create a plumper pout.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a substance derived from your own blood, containing a high concentration of platelets and growth factors. Unlike Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a liquid form of blood plasma, PRF is a gel-like material that forms during the blood centrifugation process. Acting as a scaffold, it holds platelets together, facilitating a sustained release of growth factors when injected into specific areas of the skin.
Radiesse, formerly known as Radiance, is an FDA approved injectable filler that is specially designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production while calcium-based microspheres provide immediate volume and lift to the skin, erasing wrinkles and filling in lines and creases. It can even be used as to shape the nose as a non-surgical nose job.
Approved to treat wrinkles and folds around your nose and mouth (often called smile or marionette lines), Refyne is the perfect choice to naturally smooth those areas. The sister to Refyne, Defyne is another new filler from Restylane that is designed to plump and fill deep-set lines. Defyne is designed to fill folds that are more prominent on your skin.
Renuva is an off-the-shelf alternative to autologous fat transfer, making it a groundbreaking treatment that, when injected, gradually replaces age-related fat loss with your body’s own fat. Volume loss is common with aging, which can be treated by an injectable allograft adipose matrix made from purified donated fat tissue.
Kysse injections offer a softer look that is more natural. Your lips will look plump and soft instead of hard and lumpy, providing an excellent aesthetic result. Kysse is also a long-lasting filler, so you can expect to love your lips for up to 6-9 months before needing to come back into the office.
Restylane Lyft is one of the longest lasting hyaluronic acid gel fillers on the market, with patients in clinical trials reporting results that lasted for up to a full year. Restylane Lyft can also be combined with other fillers and neuromodulators, such as Botox, in a procedure known colloquially as a “liquid facelift.”
Restylane Silk works to erase the telltale signs of aging and skin damage that occurs in the lips and around the mouth. Restylane Silk is designed to have a much softer consistency, which makes it ideal for adding volume and shape to thin lips without worry of creating unrealistic or uncomfortably plump results.
RHA® is a unique hyaluronic acid filler because it is the first and only FDA-approved HA filler for dynamic folds and wrinkles. RHA® is manufactured with a uniquely gentle technique to preserve hyaluronic acid’s natural structure, which more closely mimics the hyaluronic acid found in your skin.
Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler that uses poly-L-lactic acid and a biocompatible, biodegradeable aqueous gel to correct deep wrinkles and creases while also stimulating the body’s natural collagen production process. Unlike other forms of cosmetic treatments, Sculptra achieves subtle, natural looking results over time as the body replaces collagen that has been lost over time.
PDO threads can be used to create jaw and neckline lifts, cheek and mid-face lifts, and brow and eyelid lifts. However, the exact treatment will vary by patient need and anatomy. A Thread Lift procedure will hold the skin in place, and will also stimulate collagen to rejuvenate skin, for 12 to 15 months.
Juvederm Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid gel filler specifically designed to restore lost volume to the cheeks. It is formulated with a numbing agent called lidocaine in order to make the process of injection as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
Xeomin is a neuromodulator made with a pure form of the botulinum toxin. Because it seems very similar to Botox, many patients ask us to compare Xeomin and Botox. Simply put, the former is pure botulinum toxin type A and 100% additive-free.
