Injectables: BOTOX, Dysport, and Dermal Fillers
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a sterile, purified protein. When injected into muscles, BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily reduces contractions that cause skin creasing. BOTOX Cosmetic treatments can dramatically reduce wrinkles and fine lines for a more youthful appearance.
Fillers offer an exciting alternative for patients who wish to avoid facial surgery. Dr. Yee offers a variety of options, including Restylane®, collagen, RADIESSE®, Perlane®, Sculptra®, JUVÉDERM®, and many other "liquid facelift" and non-surgical treatments, such as the Y® Lift.
Dysport® is an injection used to improve fine lines and wrinkles. It works by reducing muscle contractions, which can cause skin creases. Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport is usually recommended for patients who wish to treat larger areas of the face.
Restylane® is one of the most popular dermal fillers on the market today. It not only fills wrinkles, lines, and certain blemishes, but also moisturizes the skin. In addition to its value as a filler, Restylane is also a popular non-surgical lip augmentation option.
RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that smoothes wrinkles, lines, and other facial imperfections that extend from your nose to your mouth. In addition, treatment can stimulate the skin to produce new collagen fibers. The resulting benefits can last up to two years.
Perlane® is a hyaluronic acid filler. It is similar to Restylane®, but more concentrated. As a result, it is more effective in treating deeper wrinkles and folds. Perlane can also be used to produce a temporary brow lift without the need for surgery.
Sculptra® is a popular treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. The polylactic acid in Sculptra promotes collagen growth in the skin, which takes effect over several weeks following treatment and lasts up to two years. It is synthetically produced, so no allergy testing is required prior to treatment.
JUVÉDERM® produces a collection of hyaluronic acid fillers, which can lift, smooth, and plump the skin. Dr. Yee offers several formulas to address different areas of the face, including the cheeks, the nose and mouth, and the lips.
If you seek a dramatic transformation but are hesitant to undergo a surgical facelift, Dr. Yee may recommend a liquid facelift. By using a combination of injectable products, Dr. Yee can safely and effectively treat wrinkles, sagging skin, and other symptoms of aging.
As we age, our cheeks can lose their youthful contour and smooth, plump shape. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first FDA-approved dermal filler to increase volume in the cheeks. The formulation is specifically designed to restore volume loss in the mid-face and produce long-lasting results.
KYBELLA® is a non-surgical injectable that improves the appearance of a double-chin. Treatment eliminates fat cells by breaking down the fat cell membrane, improving the contours of your jaw and neck. KYBELLA has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for your safety.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler specially designed to address signs of aging in the lower face. This injectable treatment can quickly and comfortably improve the appearance of deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and vertical lip lines.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is an injectable filler used to treat lines around the mouth, and add fullness to the lips. Dr. Yee was among the first in the United States to offer this revolutionary dermal filler and can deliver natural-looking results.
