Juvederm® is one of the several filler products approved by the FDA (Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella). It is made of hyaluronic acid and used for corrections such as smoothing and diminishing facial lines, providing volume to areas of the face and restoring lips to a more youthful volume and definition. There are several formulas of Juvederm that are available. Each one has a different thickness and consistency.
Botox, also known as Botulinum toxin, is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure performed. Botox temporarily weakens the targeted muscles, causing the treated site to become smooth and wrinkle-free. The procedure is painless and done with a very fine needle. Results from Botox take two to three weeks to show, and will last from three to four months.
Kybella is FDA-approved to permanently eliminate excess fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. Through a series of tiny injections, Kybella will start to destroy fat cells, allowing them to be absorbed and eliminated through the body’s natural inflammatory process. Over the next few months, a tight, smooth jawline will emerge. Once these fat cells are destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goal.
SkinMedica Chemical Peels:
SkinMedica has three different strengths of chemical peels. These chemical peels use key ingredients for skin renewal, such as salicylic acid to exfoliate the skin and reduce inflammation, resorcinol to help the salicylic acid penetrate deeper in the skin for more dramatic results, and panthenol to provide moisture. Two of the peels contain retinol to increase collagen production.
