DERMAL FILLERS & OTHER AESTHETIC INJECTABLES

WHAT DOES IT HELP?

Dermal fillers are facial injection treatments used to help diminish wrinkles while restoring volume and fullness in the face. In order to fill in those preexisting lines we like to utilize dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvéderm, Belotero, and Radiesse

WHAT DOES THIS TREATMENT DO?

FDA Approved Dermal Fillers & Other Injectables are what we use to give shape and fullness to your lips, to fill in hollowing cheeks, or to fill nasal folds/smile lines. Although these are only temporary fixes. Kybella is a stand alone injectable that helps with small pockets of unwanted body fat. 


Filler comes in quantities of 0.55ml, 1 ml, and 1.5ml. The larger the project you want enhanced the larger the amount required to achieve desired results. Recommendations to enhance volume loss in your cheeks are the use of 1 to 1.5ml per cheek in your first visit. The use of 1 syringe may require further follow up visits with additional syringes to achieve desired results and resolution of deeper wrinkles. 

HOW DOES THEY WORK?

There are several types of dermal fillers, one being hyaluronic acid. All Restylane, Juverderm, and Belotero products are hyaluronic acids (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a key molecule involved in skin moisture. HA is a natural substance in the skin that attracts and holds moisture to assist with smoother skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. The recommend product use highly depends on the project area.


Radiesse is an FDA approved dermal filler that is used for both the mid and lower face and FDA approved for the hands. Radiesse is a synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) that works by adding volume under the skin with smooth results and, over time, stimulates your body’s own natural collagen. As your body absorbs the product, it is metabolized and leaves behind your own natural collagen. Results last up to 18 months.

Sculptra Aesthetic

What Does it Help?


Sculptra Aesthetic helps improve the appearance of folds, wrinkles, and hollowness in our faces. As we age, our body naturally creates less collagen. The decrease in collagen leads to the volume loss increasing wrinkles, hollowness, deeper nasolabial folds, sagging along our jaw line.


What Does Sculptra Do?


 Sculptra® is an FDA approved dermal filler that stimulates your body's collagen production making it perfect for reversing the loss of the skin’s fullness. Sculptra is used to fill and recontour areas where underlying supportive collagen and fat tissue have diminished with age. It is most often used to fill hollowed cheeks, smile lines, and thinning areas around the eyes. It is also used to restore fullness to the hands for a natural, younger appearance.


How Does it Work? 


Sculptra Aesthetic works differently than traditional fillers. Sculptra Aesthetic is a sterile biodegradable material that is made of very small particles of a synthetic polymer, poly-L-lactic acid (PLL). Sculptra Aesthetic is injected into the deep layer of the skin where collagen naturally exists and is made. Sculptra will initially fill the wrinkles and revolumize the face with small PLL beads. As the PLL biodegrade, your body produces new collagen where the Sculptra is injected. 

Kybella

Kybella, chin fat, awaken, nakai, med spa, submental  fat, double chin, sculptra, face volume loss

What Does it Help?

Kybella provides a treatment option for patients who are interested in addressing the fat underneath their chin (submental fat)  and other small areas, but are unwilling to consider more invasive procedures like Liposuction. 


What Does Kybella Do?

Double chins can be a  pesky problem area, but with Kybella you can destroy the fat cells contributing to this unflattering phenomenon.


How Does it Work?

The substance is a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb and breakdown fat. As with any treatment, an individual’s response, reaction, and result will vary.
