BELOTERO BALANCE® is a prescription injection that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
How It Works
It Works Within Your Skin
One of the most important factors in choosing a filler treatment is understanding how it works. Over time, our skin begins to lose naturally occurring components such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA), leaving skin more prone to develop etched-in lines and wrinkles.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that completely integrates into the skin tissue.2,3 While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, BELOTERO BALANCE specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips.
Only BELOTERO BALANCE is created using the proprietary Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) process5:
- Produces a smooth, flexible gel
- Blends into the natural structure of your skin
- Gently fills stubborn etched-in lines and wrinkles
- Integrates with your skin’s tissue
- Helps smooth your moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines and wrinkles
- Maintains normal movement and facial expressions
- Feels natural to the touch
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your provider will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which means they can even develop in younger adults. One injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. In other words, no frozen face, just natural-looking results. You can control your look instead of your look controlling you. That’s the Dysport difference.
You’ve got better things to do than think about what your forehead wrinkles look like. In just one 10- to 20-minute treatment, Dysport may help improve the look of your frown lines for up to 4 months. The majority of patients see improvement in just 2–3 days after treatment. Results of repeat treatments may be comparable to your first use. Another plus? There is little to no downtime after your treatment, which means you can get back to your day faster.

Treatment consist of:
Fraxel laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out.
Laser hair removal makes it possible to experience smoother skin anywhere on the body. Unlike shaving, depilatory creams, waxing, tweezing, and other common methods of hair removal, laser treatments produce lasting results.
The Candela GentleLase device safely and effectively removes hair even from sensitive areas such as the bikini line. Laser hair removal can also treat the back, chest, lip, chin, neck, shoulders, arms and legs.
Prior to your appointment, do not tweeze, wax or tan in the area you wish to receive treatment. You will however, be asked to shave the area to be treated within 24 hours before your visit.
Removing unwanted hair requires several visits. Most patients need between 3 and 6 treatments.

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together, and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view. On the day of the procedure you will need to bring compression hose to be put on after the procedure and worn for 7 days, only to be taken off to shower. The recommended brand is Jobst thigh high compression stockings 20-30mmHG.

It begins to work within the deep dermis, where your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen.

XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults.
XEOMIN® contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
Botulinum toxin type A acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the lines on your forehead between your brows.
XEOMIN® was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2011. It is now widely available to patients across the US.
