Botox is a US FDA approved method used for the treatment of facial wrinkles to get a smooth look. Many clinicians have been using Botox Injections to improve the aesthetics of their patients’ facial features. It is safe, effective and uncomplicated non-surgical procedure that can help you get rid of expression lines.
How Does Botox Work?
- Treatment of the Facial Muscles’
The facial muscles have soft tissue attachments to the skin and hence when they contract, they cause the overlying skin to move resulting in wrinkles. These fine lines cannot be treated by the regular cosmetic products available in the market.
- Blocking the Nerve Impulses
Botox is an advanced technology that works by blocking nerve impulses to these muscles and reducing their activity. It acts as a relaxant to these muscles, preventing them from contracting and thus preventing the formation of wrinkles. Botox softens these muscles and caused fine lines to diminish giving the face a smooth and fuller look.
- Easy to Use
It is a simple 10 minute procedure wherein a cosmetic treatment is administered via very small needles. The injection is given to very specific muscles that require the treatment, like forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines, and its effects are localized to the area of treatment rather than traveling to other areas of the body. Usually, a muscle will require no more than one to three injections.
Benefits of Botox
Botox doesn’t just help you get things back in shape, it can also prevent the formation of creases. It can refresh your overall appearance and you can see visible results in a couple of days. It is effective for removing all kinds of facial wrinkles. The effects of a Botox are natural looking and give you a sculpted and contoured skin for a younger refreshed look, shaving years off your age.

As we age, we do not look as lively as before. Our face loses that spark and our reflexes lose that sharpness too.
Our skin doesn’t look as beautiful – and the collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin, which act as cushions, start decreasing in concentration causing the skin to deflate resulting in the appearance of fine lines, and wrinkles. Belotero Balance is designed to treat such etched lines and nasolabial folds.
Belotero balance is a filler which treats smile line and other facial wrinkles. It is an FDA approved treatment which relies upon hyaluronic acid to restore the aesthetics of your face. The hyaluronic acid used in Belotero is specially formulated using a proprietary technique called Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM). This process turns hyaluronic acid into a smooth and flexible gel with variable densities of cross linking in one cohesive structure enabling it to blend safely and naturally into the skin. This monophasic double cross linked gel can blend in gently yet effectively to fill in moderate lines and wrinkles.
The Belotero Procedure
Anybody with smile lines can be a candidate for Belotero. A Belotero treatment is a simple and fast outpatient procedure that takes only 10-30 minutes. The patient is asked to sit down or sometimes recline to make himself comfortable. A fine gauge needle is used to inject Belotero Balance into targeted areas.
It is a flexible, smooth gel that has low viscosity that enables it to incorporate efficiently into the skin by binding with water. Unlike Botox it does not treat wrinkles by impacting the ability of the muscles to move.
The affected areas are sterilized before administering the injections, however no anesthetic is required as there is hardly any discomfort. The injections are quick and there is no downtime. The results are almost immediate.
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar naturally occurring in the body and is found in skin, muscles and tendons. It is responsible for delivering nutrients to the skin and keeping it moist, supple and young. With age, the levels of hyaluronic acid keep depleting resulting in the skin becoming dry. The facial muscles also come closer to the surface of the skin due to other factors and wrinkles start appearing.
Juvederm is a US FDA approved non-surgical collection of fillers primarily consisting of hyaluronic acid. It is synthesized in the laboratory and used my cosmetologists and dermatologists to plump lips, restore volume of facial skin and smooth wrinkles and smile lines among other things.
What Can Juvederm Treat?

The Juvederm Procedure
The treatment process for Juvederm is simple. Prior to administration patients are advised to abstain from any anti-inflammatory medications 3 days prior to treatment and not wear make-up on the day it is going to be administered. Juvederm is a biosynthesized substance so it does not require any allergy tests. Administration takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Juvederm is administered into the mid to deep dermis depending on the severity of the wrinkles or correction required. Our dermatologists will numb the area with a topical anesthetic cream to minimize discomfort for the injection.
On average the results lasts for 6-9 months and in some patients up to a year. The site of injection may show some swelling but generally goes away quickly and the natural radiant look of the skin is restored.
Kybella is US FDA approved injectable used for getting rid of the double chin. It is a synthetic substance that works like the body’s indigenous fat destroying substances. It is a prescription medication suitable for anyone above the age 18 and is very effective in reduction of moderate to severe fat and improving your jawline.
Most patients show dramatic improvement after a maximum of four sessions. Each session occurs 4-6 weeks apart depending on your individual needs.
Facial Volume is an important factor that showcases your age. With age, the skin’s collagen breaks down causing the face to lose volume. Radiesse is an elective cosmetic procedure which can lift and contour your skin by simulating the face’s natural collagen to fill up the facial skin. Radiesse is a US FDA approved dermal filler which reduces wrinkles and skin folds.
Radiesse is an injectable high viscosity dermal filler which plumps up the skin and lifts it by diminishing the signs of aging by restoring the skin’s natural elasticity. It is made up of tiny microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. The microspheres are made up of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. The gel is carboxymethyl cellulose which is essentially an organic compound of calcium, hydrogen, oxygen, glycerine and sterile water.
It has been proven to be effective in reducing and diminishing:
- Nasolabial Folds (laugh lines)
- Marionette lines (lines running downwards from the corner of the mouth)
- Smile Lines
- Frown Lines
- Cheek Enhancement
- Chin Reshaping
- Jawline contouring and mandibular angle
Anyone with deep wrinkles on the face, scars or skin depressions can undergo radiesse treatment. It is also effective in enhancing the shape and size of the cheeks and chin. Radiesse can also be applied to restore volume in the back of the hands. Anyone between the ages of 35-60 can undergo Radiesse treatment.
Age-related flattening of skin, with effects more pronounced in the cheek areas is a hallmark sign of aging. It happens due to depletion of hyaluronic acid which is found in between cells and is responsible for keeping the skin firm with a youthful look. Juvederma is the first and the only injectable gel that has been approved by the US FDA for use in boosting skin volume. Your face derives its beauty and youthfulness primarily from the volume without which fine lines become more apparent.
It can be helpful for all adult over the age of 21, who want to restore the volume of their skin for a smoother contour and younger look. It is far superior that surgical options for face-lift and those involving fat transplant from other areas of the body like thighs, in that it is easy to perform, doesn’t have any complications and has longer lasting effects.
Juvederm Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid filler synthesized through a process called Vycross technology which efficiently helps in the formation of large chains of hyaluronic acid by cross-linking them.
- The cross-linking lends an excellent filling capacity to Voluma. It prevents its degradation and offers longevity of up to 2 years.
- It can be molded or shaped to achieve the desired contour.
- There is also lidocaine which minimizes patient discomfort.
Some patients might additionally be given topical anesthetics to reduce discomfort. It is a virtually painless procedure which works by restoring the hyaluronic acid of the skin resulting in instant plumping up and restoration of your youthfulness taking at least 5 years off your age.
Juvederm Vollure is an FDA Approved gel used for injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds in adults over the age of 21.
Juvederm Vollure is specifically tailored with a balance of gel firmness and low cohesivity, yielding a versatile formulation that adds subtle volume for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It has been shown to last up to 18 months from the initial injection or touch-up injection in a majority of subjects.
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Xeomin is FDA approved and used primarily for the correction of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It is made through a unique precision manufacturing process that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the accessory proteins that don’t play an active role in treatment.
