Cosmetic Injections Can Temporarily Improve The Look Of Your Moderate To Severe Face Lines.
Dysport. Another Option.
Treatment with prescription Dysport can temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines. Treatment generally takes just 10 to 20 minutes.
With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport blocks 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. You should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days. Read more.
How does Botox work?
BOTOX Cosmetic, also known as Botulinum Type A, is derived from a bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. It is produced under very closely controlled laboratory conditions and then administered by Dr. Palmer in exceedingly small therapeutic doses to treat unwanted facial lines and wrinkles. BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. Read more.
How does Perlane work?
Perlane adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to add volume like your body’s own hyaluronic acid.
What makes Perlane different is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection. On average, the gel particles in Perlane are larger than those inRestylane, which makes Perlane a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin. Read more.
What is Juvederm?
JUVÉDERM® is a ‘next generation’ family of smooth, long-lasting gel dermal fillers, and the latest advance in hyaluronic acid cosmetic filler technology. Over recent years, hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar already found naturally in the body, has become a favored compound for replenishing the areas of the face where the skin’s youthful fat volume and fullness has been lost, such as in the nasolabial folds (lines that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth), wrinkles of the lower and upper face and lipstick lines, and for plumping out the lips.
In the body, hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers of the skin. It is present in all living cells, attracting and binding water, hydrating and giving the skin smoothness and volume. However, as the body ages, the ability of the body’s cells to manufacture its own hyaluronic acid is diminished, resulting in the loss of skin volume, producing folds and wrinkles.
JUVÉDERM® is biosynthetic and of non-animal origin. Since it is not created from an animal source, there is little chance of allergic reaction. The formula is highly biocompatible, and no testing is required prior to administration. It has been proven to be safe and effective for skin of all types and colors.
The main difference between JUVÉDERM® and other popular hyularonic acid fillers is that JUVÉDERM® has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid, and it is produced with a special formulation process that makes it smoother than that of other popular gels. These gels utilize a suspension process, with particles that can be visibly seen. The particles in JUVÉDERM® gel are so small that it is completely transparent.
The combination of the higher concentration of hyaluronic acid and the smoother formulation make JUVÉDERM® long-lasting (up to six months or longer) and easier to fill with, and it should produce more natural, even-filling effects, with patient discomfort minimized at the injection site. As with other hyaluronic acid fillers, JUVÉDERM® is gradually absorbed naturally into the body. Read more.
