Botox

BOTOX has been used therapeutically for over 16 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is approved in more that 75 countries and remains the most-studied botulinum toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002.
 
BOTOX is a quick and minimally invasive procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows. No anesthesia is required, although your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injection. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and there is no downtime after wards. Discomfort is minimal and brief. The most common side effects following injection include temporary eyelid droop and nausea.
 
According to a survey done in 2005 by the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation, 97% of patients were satisfied with the results of their BOTOX Cosmetic treatment.
 

Juvederm

JUVEDERM injectable gel is a smooth gel filler your doctor eases under your skin to instantly smooth out wrinkles or folds that look like parentheses along the sides of your nose and mouth. It is produced through Hylacross technology creating a high degree of cross-linking and promoting duration for up to 6 months or longer. Results are not only instant, but they are so smooth and natural, everyone will notice, but no one will know.
 
Your doctor can tell you which JUVEDERM formulation is right for you: JUVEDERM Ultra injectable gel, optimally formulated for versatility in contouring and volumizing wrinkles and folds, or JUVEDERM Ultra Plus, a robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper wrinkles and folds.
 
It is a quick, in-office procedure.
 

Dysport

Prescription DYSPORT is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults less than 65 years of age. With just 1 injection into each of points between and over your eyebrows, DYSPORT stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as laughing, in untreated areas.
 
You should not be treated with DYSPORT more frequently than every 90 days. The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea.
 

Restylane

RESTYLANE is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is the first cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide colime and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in RESTYLANE is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA, or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaludronic Acid, which is biodegradable and fully bio-compatible with human hyaludronic acid. There is a limited risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction.
 
After your treatment, you might have some redness or swelling. This will normally last less than seven days. Sunbathing and cold outdoor activities should be avoided until any redness or swelling disappear.
 
Studies have shown that RESTYLANE effects generally last for about 6 months. Its stabilization technology helps contain the cosmetic effects until the injected material is nearly gone. Treatments are typically scheduled twice a year. Having a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated may enhance the lasting effect.
 

Radiesse

Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in the wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that rob your skin of its youthful appearance. The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. With RADIESSE wrinkle filler, you welcome back your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. That's because RADIESSE wrinkle filler's unique formulation stimulates collagenesis - the production of new collagen - which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients. It's also why more and more cosmetic surgeons, estheticians, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE wrinkle filler for long-lasting facial rejuvenation.

Fraxel

Unlike other laser treatments, FRAXEL is able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of the skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin's surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. FRAXEL stimulates the body's own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
 
By design, FRAXEL treatments can target between approximately 5 to 50 percent of the skin's surface, leaving the remaining 50 to 95 percent available to quickly heal the treated areas. Since FRAXEL treatment is so precise, it is safe and effective on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands, in addition to the face. You can expect two level of results, immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter, and tone with start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.
 
You will have some redness and swelling. Often, temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. You will be given specific instructions about what to expect and how to minimize the side effects.
 

Latisse

LATISSE® solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. LATISSE is a once-daily prescription treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes with a sterile, single-use-per-eye disposable applicator. LATISSE users can expect to experience longer, fuller and darker eyelashes in as little as eight weeks, with full results in 16 weeks.

The most common side effects after using LATISSE are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. LATISSE may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where LATISSE is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
