At LA Med Spa, we offer injectable solutions to address the early signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and more. Wrinkles are caused by a combination of the lack of collagen in the skin, cellular changes in the body, changes in the environment and exposure to the sun. Neurotoxin injections are widely considered one of the best ways to treat wrinkles and restore a youthful appearance. For sagging skin and loss of volume, we use the most advanced dermal fillers on the market. Patients may use these injections in combination for maximum results.
BOTOX is the brand name form of botulinum toxin A that is made by Allergan, Inc. It is a purified and safe form of botulinum toxin A that is produced by a microbe and causes botulism. When injected, BOTOX will temporarily paralyze the facial muscles preventing them from creating deep wrinkles, crow’s feet, and furrows in the skin.
Juvederm Ultra is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler designed to add volume where you need it most. It features special Hylacross technology that produces a smooth and flexible gel, yielding natural-looking results.
Juvederm Ultra Plus, also a hyaluronic acid filler, is formulated with larger molecules to create a thicker and more stable gel. Specifically made to correct significant cosmetic issues, Plus is injected deeper into the dermis. It targets those deep nasolabial folds and loss of facial volume and can be used to contour the face and enhance the lips. Because of the thicker consistency, it also lasts longer than Ultra.
Like other Juvederm products, Voluma is formulated with hyaluronic acid, but it is designed specifically to add volume to the cheek area. Injected directly above the bone, the results from Voluma can last up to 2 years.
Restylane Lyft is the only hyaluronic acid filler FDA-approved to treat both the face and the hands. In fact, it’s primarily used to add volume to the back of the hands. Lyft features innovative NASHA technology with unique particle size for the application. This dense formula is perfect for areas that need significant volume and less mobility. Lyft can also be used to treat scars.
Restylane Kysse is the first lip filler designed for natural looking lips. Its revolutionary XpresHAn Technology™ ensures that you retain the full range of expression after treatment. Kysse injections add volume, enhance lip color, and smooth upper lip lines for up to one year.
Dysport is similar to Botox in many ways. Both injectables are non-invasive muscle relaxers that are used to correct a variety of visible symptoms of aging. Dysport is a botulinum toxin that causes your facial muscles to relax. It’s injected under the skin and directed towards targeted areas. These injections treat moderate to severe cases of wrinkles. After injections are administered, the muscles under your skin will relax and smoothen specific areas on your face. Results typically last for 3-6 months, after which you’ll need to go for additional dosages.
Unlike Hyaluronic Acid fillers, Sculptra is made of Poly-L-lactic Acid which is designed to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. You will not see immediate results with this treatment, unlike a typical “filler”. Over 4-6 weeks, your body “resorbs” the material resulting in the production of collagen. This results in natural volume restoration and hydration. Best results can be seen with 2-4 treatment sessions. The results continue to improve over months and can last up to 3 years! The benefit of Sculptra over traditional HA fillers is the ability to treat more volume loss with natural, longer lasting results.
