Injectables

Nourishing your skin with a high quality anti-aging skincare regimen and protecting it from sun damage can go a long way toward keeping skin smooth and wrinkle-free. But even with the best care, factors including the natural processes of aging and repeated facial expressions can cause wrinkles. Fortunately, the dermatologists at Dermatology & Skin Surgery have some impressive procedures and products at their disposal to treat wrinkles and take your anti-aging routine to another level.

 

Please consult with our physicians for proper treatment or production selection.

BELOTERO BALANCE

Smooth facial lines and wrinkles

Belotero Balance injectable gel is a prescription medication that temporarily smooths and fills in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds as well as other moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles around your lips and mouth.

Clinically proven safe and effective, only Belotero Balance is created with a proprietary technology to evenly and completely integrate within skin tissue to:

  • Helps smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines and wrinkles
  • Feels natural to the touch
  • Maintains normal facial movement and expressions
  • Is a quick, easy treatment that provides immediate, noticeable results
  • Requires little to no downtime

Belotero Balance fills in small gaps beneath the skin’s surface improving the appearance of stubborn etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines above and around the lips. Treatment is quick and simple with options available to manage any discomfort. After treatment, moderate-to-severe etched in-lines and wrinkles around the mouth are noticeably smoother with a natural look and feel. Results with Belotero Balance are expected to last 6 months or longer in many patients, however, individual results may vary.

As when any injection into the skin, there is a risk of infection with Belotero Balance. Your dermatologist will discuss this and other risks, along with potential side effects.

Talk to your dermatologist at Dermatology & Skin Surgery to find out of Belotero Balance is the right solution for your wrinkles.

BOTOX COSMETIC

Visible improvement of frown lines

Years of squinting, concentrating or frowning can cause furrows and creases in the skin between the brows. BOTOX Cosmetic is an approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of these moderate to severe frown lines in adults.

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is a quick, 10-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery. The treatment targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines — repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting. With a few tiny injections, BOTOX Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to reduce muscle activity for a visible smoothing of lines between your brows.

Real, noticeable results may begin within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX Cosmetic feels like a pinch.
Ice to numb the treatment area or a topical numbing cream may be applied before treatment if you are concerned about discomfort.

Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

At Dermatology & Skin Surgery, your BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is administered by a licensed medical expert in facial anatomy with special training in the treatment technique, so you don’t lose the ability to show expression. You can still frown or look surprised, but without the wrinkles between your brows.

BOTOX Cosmetic is the number one product of its kind prescribed in the United States with a record of effectiveness and safety dermatologists know and trust. Talk to your doctor to discuss any potential risks, side effects and other issues associated with treatment to determine if BOTOX Cosmetic is right for you.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC

Boost cheek volume for a more youthful profile

Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Your cheeks may also lose volume and the skin may begin to sag, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is the first and only FDA approved injectable gel designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.

Gently injected under the skin using a fine needle, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC:

  • Adds volume lost to aging for adults over 21 years
  • Creates contour and a subtle lift instantly
  • Is a nonsurgical treatment
  • Contains a modified hyaluronic acid, derived from naturally occurring sugar in the body
  • Provides natural-looking results
  • Helps restore a more youthful profile for up to two years with optimal treatment

To reduce discomfort during treatment, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC contains an anesthetic called lidocaine.

Participants in a clinical study of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC reported looking up to 5 years younger and 90% were more satisfied with their appearance at six months after treatment.
