Botox®, Juvederm®, Kybella® and Restylane®
Certain lifestyle choices – such as smoking, poor diet, or excessive sun exposure – can accelerate the aging process and result in wrinkles. However, minimally invasive facial cosmetic treatments like those offered at Rejuvenation Wellness & Medispa can help minimize signs of aging, such as a loss of volume, collagen, and elastin, using injectable solutions like Botox® and Juvederm®.
Our injectable treatments require no downtime and result in smoother skin and a more youthful look that enhances the natural beauty of your face. These include:
- Wrinkle smoothers to erase fine lines and reduce or eliminate moderate to deep creases
- Facial fillers to restore volume and facial contours
- Lip augmentation to plump and define thinning lips
Botox injections, which are FDA-approved for people 18 and older, can help prevent wrinkles before they start. The whole reason wrinkles develop is because your skin weakens and folds over time and can’t recover after years of laughing, smiling, furrowing your brow, or a host of other facial expressions.
Often, doctors will recommend treating your wrinkles with a topical retinol product that stimulates collagen, which strengthens your skin. Botox, on the other hand, prevents and smooths out existing wrinkles caused by muscle movements across your forehead, between your brows (known as “the elevens”), or in the outer corners of your eyes (crow’s feet).
Precise placement of Botox in facial muscles that pull in one direction allows for opposing muscles to pull in the opposite direction to become stronger with time, thus allowing these muscles to age more evenly.
The Juvederm family of dermal fillers is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that helps maintain skin volume and hydration. Juvederm adds volume to the skin and lips to smooth creases and create a fuller appearance. Each injectable gel is formulated to target different areas of the face:
- Juvederm® XC smooths lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) for up to one year, while Juvederm Vollure™ XC does the same but lasts longer – for up to 18 months.
- Juvederm® Ultra XC plumps up your lips, while Juvederm Volbella® XC adds subtle volume to lips and smooths the appearance of vertical lines above the lip.
- Juvederm Voluma® XC lifts and contours your cheeks to address volume loss associated with aging.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. It typically involves a series of injections to reduce the appearance of submental fat (double chin). It may take several weeks before improvements are noticeable, but the effects can last for years. Because the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat, which means that submental fullness will not return and you should not need any other treatments.
Restylane is a safe, natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to your skin by correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds. It is made from a water-soluble substance already present in your skin called hyaluronic acid. Restylane wrinkle treatment can help make you look younger without surgery.
