Bellafill® provides a beautiful, natural-looking correction that lasts years rather than just a few months. This filler is made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres within smooth collagen.
Collagen immediately adds volume to the skin to lift wrinkles known as smile lines for a smoother, more relaxed appearance. In addition, the tiny microspheres in Bellafill® re-create the firm structure of smoother-looking skin by supporting production of your body's own collagen.
Botox® Cosmetic (Botulinium Toxin Type A, as trademarked by Allergan Inc.) is an injectable that works to soften facial wrinkles. Popular areas treated include the vertical lines between eyebrows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Thousands of men and women today feel much more confident after receiving Botox injections on a regular basis.
Dr. Breister Ghosh focuses on providing patients with a natural look when she injects them with FDA-approved BOTOX Cosmetic in her office. A few tiny injections can relax overactive facial muscles and provide softening for those vertical lines found between the brows, worry lines on the forehead and the 'crow's feet' crinkling at the corners of the eyes.
If preparing for a special occasion, patients should plan to receive Botox around 1-2 weeks before the event since the results of Botox are not immediately seen after injection. It can take anywhere between 3-7 days for Botox to reach the maximal effectiveness and to show results. After reaching the maximal effectiveness, Botox gradually wears off over a period of 3-4 months. This can vary between individuals. In order to maintain results, Botox treatments are needed every 3-4 months.
Juvéderm® Whether you want filler to correct the wrinkles around your nose & mouth, add volume to define your cheekbones, or plump your lips, there is a Juvéderm® product for you. All of the Juvéderm products are composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the human body. These fillers look like a crystal-clear, smooth gel. The list below explains what each type of Juvéderm is best for:
Juvéderm® Ultra XC is best for temporarily adding fullness to the lips & for smoothing out moderate to severe nasolabial folds & marionette lines. This filler lasts up to one year.
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC is best for temporarily smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. This filler lasts up to 18 months.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC is best for temporarily adding fullness, volume, and definition to the lips and for smoothing out perioral lines, also known as “lipstick lines”. It can also be used for filling in the tear troughs and improving the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. This filler lasts for up to 1 year.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC is best for adding volume and definition to the cheek area. This subtly lifts the midface area and contours the cheekbones. This filler lasts up to 2 years.
All of the Juvéderm fillers contain a numbing agent called lidocaine. Patients are also offered numbing cream and ice to minimize discomfort. It is important to note that every patient’s metabolism differs, so the estimated time that the filler lasts will greatly vary between patients.
Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin also referred to as a "double chin." Submental fullness is a common, undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact both men and women, and is influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, it is often resistant to diet and exercise.
If you're bothered by submental fullness, you're not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of people said they're bothered by this fullness, and people are just as bothered by the fat chin or under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.
Kybella is best for patients who have submental fullness without excess skin under the chin or neck area. Unfortunately, Kybella does not tighten loose skin underneath the chin or neck.
One treatment of Kybella takes approximately 30 minutes and downtime is minimal. Swelling is not uncommon, so patients are encouraged to intermittently ice the treated area.Most people will require 3 - 4 treatments at 6 to 8 week intervals to achieve optimal results. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they do not regenerate, so results are permanent.
Restylane® a crystal-clear gel, is injected in small amounts either just under the skin or into the skin in order to restore volume and structure. It is often used to minimize or fill in crow's feet, nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds), smoker's lines, smile lines, worry lines, frown lines or forehead lines. It is also successful in providing fuller lips (lip augmentation), defined lip line (vermillion border), stronger cheek bones, more pronounced chin and happier mouth corners (oral commissures).
There have been more than 20 million facial filler treatments worldwide with Restylane. Restylane does not affect facial movement or facial expression.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is not an overnight miracle and is not a quick-fix. This filler is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds that appear due to lost collagen. It is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time, providing you with a natural-looking, subtle result. A full treatment of Sculptra can last more than two years. An average of three sessions spread out over a few months is needed to obtain optimal results.
