Botox is a substance derived from botulism toxin which is produced by the bacteria clostridium botulism. The ability of the toxin to paralyze muscle has been used medically for years to alleviate unwanted muscle spasm. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration first approved this drug as safe and effective therapy for blepharospasm, strabismus, hemifacial spasm,and primary axillary hyperhidrosis. Since that time, many dermatologists and plastic surgeons have been using this drug for the treatment of “wrinkles” with great success. Botox is FDA approved for cosmetic use to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
BOTOX for Excessive Sweating
Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, or severe underarm sweating, is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body’s temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements. This condition often goes undiagnosed, misdiagnosed and untreated due to lack of awareness.
JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is a smooth consistency gel dermal filler that helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). JUVÉDERM® XC comes in two formulations: JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC.
Restylane® Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age. Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar already present in your skin.
A special gel-matrix, Radiesse® Volumizing Filler creates immediately visible results. With its fine calcium microspheres Radiesse® Volumizing Filler stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation to create long-lasting volume. The gel itself, as well as the microspheres, are completely broken down by the body over time. The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume. Radiesse® Volumizing Filler works immediately so the results are instant.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen.
As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
