JUVÉDERM® is a commonly used dermal filler that improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fills facial hollows in the cheeks, and augments the lips. The main ingredient in JUVÉDERM® is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural substance that helps the skin retain moisture and softness while it adds youthful volume. This substance is gradually reabsorbed by the body over time. Dr. Galanis offers many different formulations of JUVÉDERM® that are customized for specific purposes and areas of the face. During your consultation, Dr. Galanis will assess your skin and your desires for improvement to help determine which JUVÉDERM® treatment is right for you.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure. It is FDA approved for the treatment of deep forehead wrinkles and “frown lines” between the brows. The injections work by temporarily limiting movement of the muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead area. Results are seen after two days, and there is no recovery time. Patients are encouraged to avoid strenuous activity and alcohol for the first 24 hours. Final results will last from three to six months.
Sculptra® Aesthetic provides results similar to hyaluronic acid fillers, but it minimizes wrinkles and fills facial hollows gradually over time. It works by stimulating the skin’s natural collagen production to visibly improve the quality of the skin, restore its underlying structure, and restore lost volume. Most patients receive four sessions of Sculptra® Aesthetic treatments that are scheduled up to three weeks apart.
