Hyaluronic acid fillers, including Restylane, Juvederm and Belotero families all have their own indicated FDA-approved injection sites. In addition to these injection sites (mostly for filling up wrinkles), they could also be used for brow lift, eye lift, nose tip lifting, saddle nose deformity correction, nose hump reduction, temple augmentation, acne scar correction, lip augmentation (key-hole pattern, especially), chin augmentation, hand rejuvenation, and even mesotherapy!
There are only a few FDA approved non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatments made by various manufacturers. Consequently, most of the uses are off-label applications: Wrinkles around the eyes, i.e., crow’s feet, “11” sign, nasolabial folds, forehead wrinkles, eyelift brow lift, nasal alar reduction, gummy smile treatment, mouth corner lifting, chin dimple treatment, masseteric muscle (biting muscle) reduction, neck lift and face lift, shoulder muscle (trapezious muscle) reduction for lower neck slimming and elongation, arm muscle reduction, leg muscle reduction, etc.
We now offer wrinkle reduction treatments to the affected hyperhidrosis areas, circumventing the need for any surgery. The success rate is extremely high. And if the patient desires a permanent resolution, our Smart laser system can be used to insert a 1mm sized tiny fiberglass through the skin to introduce an appropriate dose of energy to destroy the specific sweat glands, without reducing the necessary oil production that is essential for skin health. The end result is that there is no more embarrassing amount of sweat with ensuing bad odor.
RADIESSE™is a well trusted dermal filler that immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features while providing long-term improvement in the skin’s appearance. The dermal filler has patented microsphere technology and stimulates the body to produce new collagen for a soft, natural look that lasts. RADIESSE™ dermal filler is made of unique patented calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel carrier. When injected into the skin, these microspheres initially perform as a filler – they immediately provide facial volume for a soft, natural look. Over time, your body will gradually absorb the gel carrier, leaving the very tiny, smooth microspheres to remain. These microspheres start a process in your body called neocollagenesis, creation of new collagen. New collagen production will begin in your own body and encourages collagen growth around the injection site(s).
KYBELLA™ injection is the first and only non-surgical product on the market used to treat excess submental fat (double chin). The active ingredient in Kybella™ is ATX-101 an artificial deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps breakdown the absorption of fat. When it is injected into the fat beneath your chin, the solution causes the destruction of fat cells resulting in your cells being unable to store or accumulate fat.
We use authentic Kybella injection for treatment of fat in areas such as under the chin, accessory breasts, breast tails and love handles. Proper pre-injection of lidocaine helps us prevent significant pain during treatment. If you do not want any surgery and yet, want to have local fat removed, this product might be a good choice for you.
SCULPTRA™ Injections are part of our skin rejuvenation treatments used to provide a fuller more youthful looking appearance. It is a synthetic dermal filler containing poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates collagen production. As we age our skin produces less and less collagen, and sun exposure contributes to its depletion. Sculptra smoothes skin fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the body to produce collagen.
