Botox and Xeomin are neuromodulators which are used for what are called dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles are caused by repeat muscle contractions in areas like the forehead, the glabella (between the eyebrows), and on the sides of the eyes, otherwise known as “crow’s feet.” The treatments are incredibly effective, safe and easy to undergo with essentially no downtime. These treatments are often treated 2 to 3 times a year.
All three of the above named fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies.
One of the most important factors in choosing a filler treatment is understanding how it works. Over time, our skin begins to lose naturally occurring components such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA), leaving skin more prone to develop etched-in lines and wrinkles. All three of the above are hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable fillers that completely integrate into the skin tissue. While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, hyaluronic acid fillers specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips.
Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
REPLENISH VOLUME. RESTORE COLLAGEN. REFRESH YOU.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE Volumizing Filler to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.

What is Bellafill® and how is it unique?
Bellafill® is a smooth, collagen-based filler with PMMA microspheres. The PMMA re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen. Bellafill® is also the only dermal filler established safe and effective for the correction of nasolabial folds through 5 years.
There are multiple ways to improve skin texture and color. One of the options includes chemical peels of various strengths. Chemical peels use a variety of solutions that can provide a very light treatment to a rather intense one. Our goal is to help guide each patient as to which peel will be best for his/her skin. We factor in your age, skin color, condition being treated, as well as how much healing or “downtime” you have available. Once all of this is determined we can perform a treatment that will minimize risks and maximize results.
An example of a popular peel is the Vi peel. This is a medium depth peel that will improve skin texture as well as reduce discolorations. The recovery is easy and relatively short for most patients. As with any peel it’s results are maximized when combined with a good home skincare regimen.
