BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly purified protein injected into the skin to relax the muscles that cause some kinds of wrinkles. While BOTOX Cosmetic can treat certain medical conditions, such as excessive sweating, it is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, primarily to reduce wrinkles on the face and neck. BOTOX Cosmetic injections are relatively painless, as the needle used is significantly smaller than those used for other injectable fillers.
Jeuveau is used by both men and women to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and is an alternative to Botox Dysport, and Xeomin.
Jeuveau, also known as #NEWTOX, is another purified form of botulinum toxin that has been shown to deliver temporary improvement in moderate to severe frown lines by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity, temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines and reducing the appearance of movement lines. Jeuveau is another excellent, non-surgical option that reduces the effects of aging and helps regain a more youthful appearance.
The results of Jeuveau (or competitive neurotoxin brands such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin) can last anywhere from three to four months.
Jeuveau and other brand name toxins are priced based on the number of units used on the individual, and how much you will require is based on the areas you need treated and overall severity of wrinkles.
Move toward a natural look.
Wrinkles aren’t your style and the “frozen look” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that are minimized, not your expressions.
Say Goodbye to Frown Lines
Day to day, the muscles of your face are constantly exercised as you outwardly express your emotions—from laughter to concern, your expressions are part of what make you unique. Unfortunately, these muscle contractions can start to take a toll on our appearance as we age. Glabellar lines often develop between the eyebrows, creating pesky “11” creases that stick around regardless of what you’re feeling. Not only do these lines age the face, they also give the appearance of negative emotion.
If you’re feeling self-conscious about your frown lines, XEOMIN® may be the perfect solution for you. XEOMIN is a botulinum toxin A that works in much the same way as products like Botox or Dysport, to smooth out wrinkles on the brow by reducing muscle movement.
How it Works
When you frown, squint, or smile, the muscles between your eyebrows contract and cause your skin to furrow. The resulting dynamic lines eventually contribute to persistent lines. As a neurotoxin, XEOMIN works by temporarily blocking signals between your nerves and muscles, causing the muscles to relax and minimizing their ability to contract. This allows lines and wrinkles to smooth out naturally when your face is at rest and prevents muscles from moving in a way that deepens creases.

After your treatment, you should start noticing changes within 2-3 days, with optimal results showing within a week. Your XEOMIN results should last for 3-6 months.
JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM® XC is a new U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved version of the effective JUVÉDERM dermal filler. Like the original JUVÉDERM, JUVÉDERM XC is a smooth-consistency gel that, when injected, restores volume to the skin, and smooths away moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM XC, however, contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize the mild discomfort sometimes caused by the injections.
As a result, this new JUVÉDERM formula eliminates the need for a topical anesthetic, as well as the up-to-30-minute wait for it to take effect. The lidocaine in the injection takes only seconds to spread across the treatment area. Results may last 6 to 9 months and, in some cases, up to year. However, additional touch-ups may be needed to maintain optimal results.
JUVÉDERM Voluma® Injectable Gel
Juvederm Voluma™ is a new, FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the face around the cheeks and chin. This is the only injectable gel created to provide a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face, addressing changes in definition that occur over time. Juvederm Voluma can help restore more youthful contours by plumping up the area that so often loses volume as part of the aging process. It can also return a firmer shape to the jaw line when some softening has set in.
Juvederm Voluma is not only an effective treatment method, but it is long lasting as well. In many patients, the results will last for a period of up to 18 months.
The active ingredient in Juvederm Voluma is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance naturally produced within the skin. As we get older, the levels of HA present in the skin begin to decline, resulting in a loss of volume and sunken or sagging cheeks. Juvederm Voluma integrates into the existing collagen and elastin in the skin tissue to offer greater support and elasticity. This can provide a noticeable smoothing and firming to the skin and lend the facial structure more substantial definition.
Juvederm Voluma is the latest in the Juvederm line of dermal fillers. These various formulas have a successful history of reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the skin and rejuvenating the face.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called "lipstick lines" in adults over the age of 21.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC lasts up to 1 year, with optimal treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a crystal-clear gel that is injected directly into and around the lips using an ultra-fine needle to temporarily plump the lips for lip augmentation and to smooth the appearance of lines around the mouth. The lidocaine gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, including the "parentheses lines" around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is designed to temporarily correct facial wrinkles for a smoother appearance to the face for adults over the age of 21.
The clinical study demonstrated JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC lasts up to 18 months, with optimal treatment.
Belotero is the latest, most advanced form of dermal filler available today. It has a unique ability to integrate with the tissues of your skin, providing volume and a more youthful shape to your face. Belotero can reduce lines and wrinkles while enhancing your own facial contours.
As we get older, our skin's production of the substances that keep it moisturized and supple begins to slow, resulting in an increase in wrinkles and lines. But Belotero is a dermal filler that incorporates one of these natural substances, hyaluronic acid (HA), to help you achieve smoother, more youthful looking skin once again

ACHIEVE A MORE YOUTHFUL‑LOOKING YOU
It's a part of life — our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Facial aging actually begins in your 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both internal (genetics and natural aging) and external (sun exposure, smoking, stress, etc) factors. As part of the natural aging process, volume in the hands can also deteriorate over time, making them appear aged.
WHAT HAPPENS AS WE AGE?
- Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity
- Hyaluronic acid diminishes as we age, causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive medical procedure used to treat varicose and spider veins, most commonly found on the legs, by collapsing them through the use of a solvent. Sclerotherapy has been used on patients since the 1930s with great success, producing increasingly effective medical, as well as cosmetic, results.
