Facial Sculpting consists of the precise use of Botox® Cosmetic and like products to relax muscles, as well as Dermal Fillers such as Radiesse® and Juvederm® to restore lost volume in the face. This is done with the technical skills and knowledge of injecting, along with the artistic ability of an aesthetically-trained eye to create a more youthful appearance.
NovaThreads which are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. The whole needle is inserted in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, the needle is then pulled out and the PDO thread remains under the skin.
PDO is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. They have been around for years used in other ways. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. Skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave any scar tissue.

Treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion can: Improve age spots and black heads.
Botox® Cosmetic is a safe, fast and effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions on the forehead and around the eyes and lips. Botox Cosmetic/Dysport is a FDA approved highly purified protein that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum.
- By blocking the nerve impulses to the tiny facial muscles, that cause the facial expression lines and wrinkles, this protein prevents their contraction and relaxes them.
- By reversing the dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines, worry lines, laugh lines and neck bands, Botox Cosmetic reverses the visible signs of aging. Depending on the individual, the results can be visualized within 5-10 days after treatment, it peaks in 2-4 weeks and will last for 3-6 months.
- The length of the treatment session is usually 15-30 minutes.
- There is no recovery period and patients should not experience any “down-time”.
Botox Cosmetic is not a replacement for fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm or Radiesse in the treatment of deep static wrinkles. In actuality the two products are complementary and their simultaneous use results in a more smooth, relaxed and younger appearance. Also known as Botox or Botulinum Toxin Type A.
Botulinum toxin is also used cosmetically to balance facial asymmetry and relax tight neck bands, as well as medically to reduce perspiration and to treat migraine headaches and muscle spasticity.
Dermal Fillers such as Radiesse®, Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm® re-volumize and immediately enhance specific areas of your face, including smile lines, superficial lines and lips. Fillers can also be used to contour the cheeks and jaw line.
Juvederm™, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Perlane are a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Our clinic professional eases Juvederm™/Restylane, /Restylane Silk,/ Perlane injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore the client’s skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth).
Juvéderm™ provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm™ compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. Juvéderm™ injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that has been proven to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, most patients get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Juvederm™ Voluma™ is the latest of the Juvederm range of hyaluronic acid fillers specifically designed to restore volume in areas of volume loss. Common areas include the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. Additionally, due to its versatility it is also suitable for adding definition to the jaw line. It stimulates collagen and has long lasting effect up to 2.5 years.
How It Works – Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in the wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that rob your skin of its youthful appearance.
The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. With RADIESSE® wrinkle filler smooth out the signs of aging. That’s because RADIESSE wrinkle filler’s unique formulation stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients.
Perlane is an FDA-approved dermal filler for implantation into the skin for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. Perlane is generated by a Streptococcus species of bacteria.
Perlane differs from Restylane primarily in the size of the particles and the depth of the required injection. Perlane, used for deeper wrinkles, has larger particles that are injected deeper into the skin than Restylane.
Perlane is not approved for use in lip enhancement, but Restylane can be used for this purpose in patients 21 years of age and older. Clinical studies showed no significant differences in the safety of Restylane and Perlane.
Perlane is comprised of biotechnologically engineered, non-immunogenic, stabilized hyaluronic acid gel particles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin. The three-dimensional gel particles in Perlane are hydrophilic molecules, attracting and binding to water molecules as they degrade, helping to maintain volume augmentation for about six months.
Restylane Silk is the first FDA –approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler to augment the lips.
