Xeomin is a form of botulism toxin that is used to block muscle movement in areas that contribute to wrinkles. It is used in the forehead, typically between the brows to soften frown lines. Unlike filler, Xeomin only impacts muscle movement, and has no effect on filling deep wrinkles that have already formed. The same ingredients in Botox and Dysport are used, though Xeomin is somewhat of a purer form of the toxin.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are natural looking and long lasting.
KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. Whether you have a moderate amount of chin fullness or a bit more.
RADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.
Botox is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin that’s safe to inject into certain areas of your face that have succumbed to repeated facial expressions over the years. When your master aesthetician injects Botox into specific points on your forehead, between your eyebrows, or at the corners of your eyes, the solution relaxes your facial muscles so lines and wrinkles appear smoother and less noticeable. With Botox, you can still make your usual facial expressions, but the lines on your face won’t be as prominent.
Botox is safe and effective when administered by a medical professional, like the highly qualified team at Skin Serenity Medispa, to reduce the appearance of:
Your practitioner customizes a Botox treatment plan that addresses your specific areas of concern, so you get natural-looking results.
Dermal fillers are different from Botox in the way they work, but similar in that they also diminish the outward signs of aging in your facial features. Many types of dermal fillers, including the Juvéderm® family of fillers offered at Skin Serenity Medispa, contain hyaluronic acid, which is effective at filling in lines and wrinkles and plumping up hollowed areas of your face.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural skin compound that your body produces less of as you age, so when your provider injects a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid into your face, your skin appears more youthful and more supple.
Areas of your face that have lost volume often benefit from dermal fillers like Juvéderm. Different formulas of fillers treat lines and wrinkles and plump up areas, including:
Some dermal fillers can even be used to plump up the skin on your hands so they appear more youthful with less visible veins, too.
The results from Botox and fillers are long-lasting and natural-looking, so you look like yourself, not overdone. To learn if Botox and fillers can help minimize your lines and wrinkles and plump up sagging skin, call Skin Serenity Medispa to schedule a consultation or book online.
