Botox® / Juvederm®

Injectable Treatments

Fine lines and wrinkles may cause you to frown, which will only produce more wrinkles. Smooth away those lines and instantly restore your skin’s youth and volume and say good-bye to facial wrinkles and folds. The following are some of the injectable treatments that we administer in both our Ft. Lauderdale and Palm Beach locations.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, in forehead lines, and around the crow’s feet in people from 18 to 65 years of age.

Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic consists of a few tiny injections and takes about 10 to 20 minutes to complete. Within days there is a noticeable improvement in those persistent lines and wrinkles. Results may vary, but the typical BOTOX® treatment lasts about three to six months.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. The BOTOX® solution temporarily paralyzes facial nerves, reducing the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines between the brows, laugh lines around the eyes, and creases in forehead.

Dysport®, like Botox cosmetic, is a form of botulinum type A, and was recently awarded FDA approval for the cosmetic reduction of facial wrinkles in the upper face area. Areas treated include the Glabella lines between the eyes, forehead lines and the Crow’s feet lines at the outer corners of the eyes. Dysport should last between 3 and 6 months in most patients.

Radiesse™ (Formerly Radiance™ FN)

Developed with safety and longevity in mind, Radiesse™ is a new generation injectable filler that offers superior versatility for both cosmetic and reconstructive use without surgery.

What sets Radiesse™ apart from other dermal fillers is its durability, longevity, and versatility. The unique composition of Radiesse™ provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. Radiesse™ is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. The microspheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows, producing the desired long-term effect. The results pf Radiesse™ may last between one to two years. Radiesse™ is an ideal filler for deep creases and folds.

With collagen-generating properties, Radiesse™ not only fills in wrinkles, but it also stimulates development of new tissue. This trait of the filler removes the need for multiple injections over a span of a few weeks or months, allowing Palm Beach area Radiesse™ patients to maintain longer optimal results without numerous return trips for additional injections.

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm® is the “next generation” of FDA approved dermal fillers. Juvéderm® provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers are used to restore volume and fullness to the skin, giving a healthy, youthful appearance. Juvéderm® contains the highest concentration of non-animal, cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available. It is currently the only approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in patients of color. Juvéderm® is developed using the proprietary Hylacross technology, a technologically advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable, smooth gel that flows easily into the skin and creates a smooth, natural look and feel. All other currently approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers utilize a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can be seen under magnification as opposed to the smooth formulation used in Juvéderm®. Juvéderm® provides optimal results with a single treatment in the majority of patients and delivers sustained results for six months or longer.

Restylane®

Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. With a highly favorable safety profile, Restylane® is composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (a substance found naturally in the human body). Restylane® is fully biocompatible. There is limited risk of animal-based disease transmission or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins, although no allergy testing is required before use.

Restylane® maintains its shape using the body’s own moisture. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is hydrophilic or “water loving.” As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide long-lasting results.

Voluma

As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.

Sculptra

Sculptra Aesthetic. Not an overnight miracle. Long lasting. Not a quick-fix. The first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. Replacing lost collagen. Giving you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last more than two years.* So you have more time to see how sensational subtle can be. Discover anti-age for the modern age.

Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds,** that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
