Injectable Treatments at Jupiter Dermatology
To suit all your skin needs, we have a range of numerous injectable treatments with both neuromodulators and dermal fillers. A neuromodulator is an injectable treatment that relaxes wrinkles and contains botulinum toxin. Dermal fillers are injectable gels typically comprised of hyaluronic acid that aid in improving aging signs.
Botox is the most widely used neuromodulator treatment. It is from a purified form of botulinum toxin type A. It reduces wrinkles, lines, and folds by blocking the nerve signals that cause the repetitive movement of muscle which leads to these aging signs. Botox can be used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Results are noticeable within a week and last for 3 to 4 months on average.
Dysport is a neuromodulator that is made from botulinum toxin. This is formulated differently than other neuromodulators like Botox. It is used to improve moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows and across the forehead. It smooths out these lines by blocking the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. Patients will see some change immediately with the most dramatic results occurring after a week. The results of Dysport last on average for 3 to 4 months.
Jeuveau, or Newtox, is the newest FDA-approved neuromodulator on the market. This neuromodulator reduces lines and wrinkles by blocking the signals that tell the facial muscles to contract. This injectable was specifically designed to treat frown lines but can also be used on the forehead and for crow’s feet. Jeuveau gives dramatic results that will be visible within a few days of treatment. These results last between 3 to 4 months on average.
Juvederm XC is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that is used to smooth out and plump up the skin. It is used to improve the appearance of smile lines, marionette lines, and lips. Patients will notice results immediately after their 15- to 30-minute treatment. The results will continue to improve as the hyaluronic acid settles into the body. Most patients enjoy the results from Juvederm XC for up to 1 year.
Juvederm Volbella is a dermal filler from the hyaluronic acid-based fillers line from Juvederm. This filler was created to enhance the lips and correct vertical lip lines. Volbella is a great choice for subtle, plump lips. The results from Volbella have been shown to last for up to 1 year.
Another filler from Juvederm is Vollure. It is formulated with a Vycross technology so that the results of Vollure last for up to 18 months. This injectable is FDA-approved to improve lines and wrinkles in the midface. Within a 15- to 30-minute treatment, your skin will be smooth and plump with Vollure.
The Juvederm Voluma filler is a great, long-lasting treatment that adds volume to the face for a more defined and contoured look. It is FDA-approved for use in the cheeks and lips to plump up the areas if they are thinning or have lost volume. Voluma results can last for up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to eliminate fat. This injectable uses an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid which breaks down and destroys fat cells. Kybella is used to treat excess fat under the chin that causes the look of a double chin. Most patients need 3-6 treatment sessions for optimal results. The fat cells will flush out over time which makes the results long-lasting, especially for patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Radiesse is an injectable treatment that is used to correct deep facial folds and creases. The injectable consists of calcium hydroxylapatite that is suspended in gel. Hydroxylapatite is a normal substance found in the bones. Radiesse can be used for chin and cheek augmentation as well as reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds, perioral lines, scars, and aging hands. The in-office treatment takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. Radiesse results have been shown to last for up to 18 months in most patients.
Restylane is a cosmetic dermal filler formulated of hyaluronic acid. Restylane is injected into the dermis to restore fullness and volume to the skin. The results from Restylane are seen immediately and last for up to 18 months. This filler can correct wrinkles, lines, and folds in the face as well as plump up areas of volume loss like in the cheeks.
The Sculptra Aesthetic is a poly-L lactic acid-based filler that provides a gradual correction of lines and wrinkles on the face. It does this by stimulating the body to produce new collagen and tissue which creates a more youthful appearance. Sculptra can treat all parts of the face. This treatment is known as the “liquid facelift,” and patients enjoy their results for up to two years or longer.
