Neurotoxins (like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) are injectables that are FDA approved to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Most common places for these cosmetic injections are the forehead, glabellar or 11's, and around the eyes (crows feet).
Botox is a neuromodulator ideal for addressing dynamic wrinkles, or lines caused by repeated expressions like smiling, squinting, or frowning. It works by temporarily restricting certain muscles from contracting, which smooths the skin. Botox can also help with crow’s feet, forehead creases, frown lines, a gummy smile, a droopy nose, and hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating).
Dermal Fillers help restore facial volume that can be lost over time. Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by your skin that adds hydration and structure.
Several brands of dermal fillers are available at Regency Medical Spa. After a full facial assessment and evaluation of your skin and the results you want to achieve, you and your provider will choose the filler that's best for you.
Dermal fillers offered include:
Restylane is a widely popular filler known for its impressive results. Both effective and versatile, Restylane can be used on trouble spots like thinning lips, scarring, and wrinkles. It’s made from a clear gel containing hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the skin, making it plumper and healthier. The Restylane products we offer in our office are:
Belotero is chiefly utilized for fine lines and wrinkles that are especially hard to treat. When superficial wrinkles resist typical filler treatments, Belotero serves as the best option for fixing crow’s feet, laugh lines, smoker’s lines, and more.
The only wrinkle filler that provides immediate volume while stimulating collagen production, Radiesse treatments can last 1-3 years, depending on the area. Made from calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, Radiesse restores facial volume and treats wrinkles and folds.
Providing subtle but significant results, Juvederm is FDA-approved and comes in a variety of products that target different areas of concern. Juvederm’s formulations offer various-sized particles in order to achieve your desired look. The Juvederm products we offer in our office include:
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that gradually replaces lost collagen with results that can last more than two years. By stimulating collagen growth, Sculptra restores the skin’s inner structure and volume. The rebuilt collagen strands bring a renewed look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
Bellafill is the only dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth long term to help maintain your youthful appearance for up to 5 years. Bellafill’s tiny, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended within a base of smooth collagen gel. Once injected, the collagen gel immediately reduces the look of smile lines. Over time, your body uses the microspheres in Bellafill to create a “scaffold” onto which your own natural collagen can develop. This collagen forms a foundation that adds volume to wrinkles, reducing their appearance – and giving you natural-looking results that feel soft and smooth for up to 5 years.
Botox and fillers can treat a wide variety of issues caused by age and volume loss, including:
