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.
Bellafill is a semi-permanent filler, with results that last for up to 5 years and beyond. Bellafill treatment is a facial filler meant for nasolabial folds and certain types of acne scars. It is formulated with bovine collagen and PMMA microspheres, which create a matrix that supports production of the body’s own collagen over time.
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.
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.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment for chin fat. It works by using deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that can help eliminate fat.
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.
Qwo is the world’s first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of cellulite. The FDA has approved Qwo to treat moderate-to-severe cellulite in the female buttocks, creating a smoother appearance of the skin. In clinical trials, Qwo reduced the severity of dimpling, waviness, “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” appearance of the skin – all common concerns that our patients have voiced.
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.
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.
