BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®
Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and other wrinkles with the help of BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®. These FDA-approved cosmetic injectables are designed to temporarily halt movement in crease-causing facial muscles for more youthful-looking skin.
Restylane® & Restylane Silk®
These two hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are FDA-approved to add fullness and volume in the treated area. Restylane® can be used to smooth away wrinkles, particularly around the mouth and nose. Restylane Silk® is specially formulated to plump and shape lips and to fill in wrinkles around the mouth.
JUVÉDERM® Family of Products
Comprised of hyaluronic acid, the JUVÉDERM® family of products are FDA-approved dermal fillers that can rejuvenate the appearance of the skin by smoothing wrinkles and adding volume to the face. Each formula is specifically designed to address one or more cosmetic concerns, from common signs of aging to lip augmentation.
Considered a volumizing filler, FDA-approved Sculptra® Aesthetic is one of the longest-lasting cosmetic injectables available. In our experienced hands, this formula can restore lost volume around the temples, cheeks, eyes, and other areas with gradual, natural-looking results.
Another popular dermal filler approved by the FDA, Radiesse® stimulates collagen production using a calcium microsphere formula. As a result, lines on the mouth, around the nose, and near the chin can be minimized virtually instantly. Radiesse® can also be used to restore a youthful fullness on the upper hands.
Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport, Xeomin® is a muscle relaxer that can soften deep creases and wrinkles across the face through a series of targeted injections.
An innovative alternative to surgical fat reduction procedures, FDA-approved KYBELLA™ injections can minimize the appearance of a “double chin” by breaking down fatty tissue along and under the jaw and neck.
Similar to JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, Belotero Balance® is approved by the FDA as a cosmetic injectable. Designed to reduce many common signs of aging, this product can also add moisture and volume to the skin without changing the natural contours of your face.
Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite
The Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite is a micro-needling device that can be used alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures to reduce common signs of aging, enhance skin tone and texture, and minimize scars and stretch marks.
