Injectables

 

Belotero is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid and is designed to integrate into the skin seamlessly. Belotero is ideal to fill in nasolabial folds and delicate areas of the face, such as vertical lip lines. 


Juvederm is a gel filler used for the treatment of mild to moderate facial creases. It is commonly used to plump lips, reduce forehead and brow lines, add volume to cheeks and jawlines, as well as fill in under-eye hollows. This gel is composed of hyaluronic acid but is unique to other HA-based products in that the gel is smooth rather than granular .


Radiesse is an injection composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) and is used to fill out deep wrinkles and fine lines on different regions of the face as well as correcting volume loss in the back of the hands. The biggest benefit of Radiesse is its role in collagen production. The gel absorbs overtime and the body metabolizes the CaHA, leaving you with your own natural collagen.  Radiesse is ideal for chin augmentations, filling in aged hands, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, shaping the nose bridge and tip, and filling in the temple area.


It is normal for the face to lose mass and volume with age. Voluma reverses this, as it is the first and only FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area. Not only do the proprietary ingredients in Voluma allow the face to be sculpted in a way that no other filler can, Voluma can also last up to 24 months.


Xeomin is a neurotoxin almost identical to Botox; both share the indentical active ingredient - botulinum toxin A. The main difference between the two is that Xeomin is a more purified version of Botox, as Botox has an accompanying protein while Xeomin does not have any additives. Because of its purity, Xeomin has less risk of anti-body formation.  This can be an advantage in theory for patients, as they can be less likely to develop a resistance to Xeomin.
