BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician/practitioner-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people eighteen years of age or older. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). One 10-minute treatment - a few tiny injections - and within days you'll see a noticeable improvement in those persistent lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months.
Dysport® is an FDA-approved injection treatment that reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport is injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. However, Dysport can diffuse muscles one to three centimeters from the injection point, while Botox can only reach as far as one centimeter, allowing for results that reach further areas with just a single injection.
Dysport was developed in Europe during the early 1990s, and has been used successfully for several years. It has also been used in the US under the name Reloxin, but was mandated to be FDA approved under its original name, Dysport. In April 2009, Dysport was approved by the FDA for use in the US and is expected to rival Botox, the most popular cosmetic procedure, with its convenience and long-lasting results.
In addition to treating fine lines and wrinkles, Dysport can also be used to relieve excessive underarm sweating, and treat the symptoms of cervical dystonia, such as neck pain and abnormal head position.

Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct wrinkles, lift facial contours, and enhance lips. Recently FDA-approved, Restylane's results are dramatic and long-lasting. One of the most significant factors of this breakthrough treatment is that it lasts for six months to a year. The crystal-clear gel is injected into the skin and plumps up wrinkles to fill them in. It works so safely and effectively, because it contains Hyaluronic Acid which is naturally found in the skin and other tissues.

Sculptra™ is an injectable product that restores and corrects the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume. This FDA-approved substance actually stimulates your body to produce its own collagen for a long-lasting, natural look. Sculptra works by both filling in lines and wrinkles and by stimulating the body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue, thereby creating a fuller, more youthful appearance. Facial fat loss, or lipoatrophy, is the loss of fat beneath the skin, which can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollow eyes. Sculptra provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of wrinkles, folds and sunken areas.
