Our Cosmetic Services:

Cosmetic Injectables Center focuses on Injectables procedures only.  These include muscle relaxants such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, Filler injectables such as Voluma, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Sculptra, and Radiesse, Fat dissolving injections (Kybella), and Thread injections (Novathreads). 

What is Kybella?

Kybella distributed by Allergen, the company that makes Botox and Juvederm, is a product injecteded in the neck to dissolve fat and improve the appearance and profile of submittal fat (double chin).  The active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.  The procedure takes about 10 minutes and the results are visible by 6 weeks after.  A total of three treatments are usually necessary.  The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, pain, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.

What are Novathreads?

 Nova threads are reservable threads used to lift and tighten skin without any cuts or incisions.  They can be used i many parts of the body such as face, jaw, neck, décolletage, abdomen, buttocks, and knees.  They are made of polydioxanone, a product previously used for biomedical applications especially in cardiothoracic surgery because it gets fully absorbed by the body without any scar tissue by 4 to 6 months.  It also stimulates collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for another 12 to 15 months.  Nova threads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread.  They are simply inserted under the skin through an easy injection.  Depending on the technique of placement (Nu-Mesh or Nu-Lift) and the choice of thread (Smooth, Twist, Barb1, barb2), it can create a line or scaffolding to create a real "skin repositioning" or tightening in the area injected.                                                                    


What is Botox? 

Botox Cosmetic is an FDA approved purified protein that is used to relax the facial muscles that cause frown lines.  If not prevented, these lines over time can etch into the skin and become a permanent feature of the face.  This can result in a person appearing angry when in fact she's not.  Botox can also be used off-label to lift brows and decrease lines on the forehead, next to the eyes (crow's feet), and on the nose (bunny lines).  Other more advanced techniques can also be performed to decrease creases on lips (granny lines), upturn corner of lips, decrease size of large masseters (jaw line), and lift jowls to give the appearance of small face lift. 

    Before:  Lines resulting from frown                        After: No lines, though patient is trying to frown

What is Dysport?

Dysport is also an FDA approved purified protein that is similar to botox in its effect.  However, the units are not directly interchangeable, and some may have a slight increased or decreased effect compared to Botox. 

What is Xeomin?

Xeomin, by makers of Radiesse and Belotero, is another muscle relaxant whos units are directly comparable to Botox.  So one unit of Xeomin produces the same effect as one unit of Botox, with the same length of duration and onset.   Xeomin has no additives, and does not have an accompanying protein like Botox, which may mean that there is less risk of developing antibodies against it (No formal evidence yet.) 

What Are Fillers? 

Fillers consist of several different products that can be safely used to "fill" the grooves and the hollow areas of the face.  These include Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus, Restylane, Perlane, Sculptra, Belotero, and Radiesse.  See below for more information on each one.


Voluma vs. Juvéderm vs. Restylane vs. Radiesse vs. Belotero vs. Sculptra:

 How Are They Different?

Juvéderm Ultra, and Restylane are composed of hyaluronic acid molecules (a naturally occurring substance in the body) that are cross-linked to increase their longevity.  They are safe and FDA approved for placement into the nasolabial folds (parenthesis).  They can also be used Off-label to fill the under-eye hollow areas (tear troughs), cheeks, lips, and facial lines to give a fuller look and to smooth away unwanted wrinkles.  Juvéderm Ultra Plus and Perlane are a bit thicker in their consistency, and are used in deeper areas that require more volume and firmness such as in the cheeks.  They also last a little longer.  A newer product called Voluma is very similar to Juvéderm Ultra Plus in that it's thick, is made up of hyaluronic acid and is available through the same company (Allergan), but it can last up to two years instead of one.  An advantage of hyaluronic acid based products is that they are almost instantly reversible with a reversing agent.  Radiesse on the other hand, is a  calcium hydroxyapatite product that has the advantage of stimulating the body's natural collagen formation in the injected areas, enhancing its lasting effect.  It is thick in consistency, and white in color. Hence it is best used in deeper areas and not as appropriate for very superficial fine lines.  Also, it does not have a reversing agent.  Belotero is a softer substance with less viscosity and is used more for superficial lines.  Sculptra, when injected, promotes stimulation of collagen production after a period of over 6 weeks which results in natural looking results that last over 2 years.  It is meant to be injected every 6 weeks for a total of about three times, and is very helpful in those with significant volume loss of the overall face.

How Latisse Makes Eyelashes Grow

Latisse was initially used as a glacauma medication that was applied into the eyes as an eyedrop.  Patients who used it noticed the significant impact it had on their lashes and reported this effect to the company.  That is how Latisse made it into the cosmetic market.  They way that it works is by pushing the hair follicles out of rest phase of their cycle, into the growth phase.  Click the picture below to see patients as they go through the process.
