Botox, dermal fillers, Kybella®, and PRFM are all absorbed by the body over time, so we recommend periodic appointments to renew your injections and maintain the look you want.
Jeffrey R. Raval, MD, MBA, FACS and our team of highly-trained Paramedical Aestheticians are friendly as well as skilled, and the atmosphere here in our office is comfortable and supportive.
What are you waiting for?
Botox has become a go-to treatment over the last two decades. Injections are used to improve or prevent facial signs of aging by reducing visible wrinkles. Botox doesn’t directly affect the skin but works to ease muscle contractions that cause wrinkling over time. Botox is also an effective solution for treating hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm perspiration.
Also based on botulinum toxin, Dysport is a purified neurotoxin that is injected to relax muscles that cause wrinkles and brow contractions. For some patients, Dr. Raval says Dysport can work faster and last longer than Botox.
Botox and Dysport solutions are measured in tiny increments called units. That allows Dr. Raval to precisely match the amount injected to the change you desire. (The more units you receive, the more obvious the change.)
Dermal fillers are also delivered via injection. They are used to restore youthful fullness to the lips, eye, and nose areas. The result is smoother features without unwanted wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers can reduce and, in some cases, erase visible signs of aging. As with Botox and Dysport injections, the amount of filler can be varied to provide just the amount of change you want to see.
Restylane® is a family of injectables made from a non-allergenic biodegradable gel. Restylane is used to restore facial volume, especially in the lips and to the nasolabial folds between your nose and mouth. The result is fuller and more youthful features. Restylane Lyft®is part of the Restylane product family and is the only FDA-approved injection specifically formulated to add volume to the mid-face area, particularly the cheeks and smile lines. Injections can last up to 12 months.
Juvéderm® is a well-known name in dermal fillers. It is based on hyaluronic acid, a substance produced naturally by your skin. Juvéderm was the first injectable to be FDA-approved for individuals with darker skin tones. It helps restore smoothness and volume to the face by removing wrinkles, deeper folds, and smile lines. Voluma, another product in the Juvéderm family, is specifically used to rejuvenate the cheek and mouth areas. It can improve even moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, and the injections can last up to 2 years in some cases. Included in the Juvéderm family are also Volbella® XC, Voluma® XC, and Vollure® XC.
Want to get rid of your double chin to restore a more youthful jawline? Kybella is the only non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment for that. It is an injectable that uses a naturally-occurring organic acid to dissolve fat deposits, which are then absorbed by the body.
