There is no reason to hide behind crow's feet, smile lines, and other wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic , a purified chemical that is injected into the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, can restore your youthful appearance quickly, safely, and easily.
Typically, the effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic is visible within three days. Maximum benefits are reached between 5 to 7 days. Once the muscle relaxes and the skin softens, you will have a more relaxed and youthful appearance.
JUVÉDERM® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Dr. Joel Lamm M.D. eases JUVÉDERM® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses”
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with the help of Dr. Joel Lamm M.D. and JUVÉDERM® injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen
Juvéderm Voluma (TM) XC
Wrinkles are only part of the aging equation. Volume loss in the cheeks is a major reason we lose that youthful profile over the years. Juvéderm Voluma (TM) XC is injected under the skin with a small needle. It works instantly to add volume and subtly life the cheek area, temporarily reversing this sign of aging.
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age. It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Will I experience any side effects?
The safety profile of KYBELLA® is well characterized. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness. These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA®. Call your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects.
