At Newport Cosmetic Center, we specialize in a variety of cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers designed to help smooth wrinkles, restore lost volume, and reduce the signs of aging in the face, neck, and hands.
Cosmetic injectables can help temporarily reduce the signs of aging in the skin, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed. There are a wide variety of cosmetic injectables that work in different ways to help smooth lines and wrinkles, while replacing lost structure and volume. These include:
Comprised of a purified protein produced by the bacterium Clostridinum botulinum, BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable treatment designed to reduce muscle contraction in areas of the face. When you make an expression, such as frowning or smiling, the muscle contractions used can cause wrinkles, frown lines, and brow furrows to occur over time. In 2013, FDA-approved BOTOX® injections were one of the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic enhancements performed in the United States, with nearly six million procedures performed.
BOTOX® injections are often used to diminish signs of mild to moderate wrinkles that develop in the upper face, including the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Our highly experienced physicians perform all BOTOX® injections.
Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus are hyaluronic acid fillers, and replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. They are very ‘smooth’ fillers that provide a very natural result. Juvederm comes in two formulations—Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus; the main difference is that Ultra Plus has a stiffer consistency.
Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus injectable gels are indicated for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvederm Ultra is an excellent choice for lip augmentation, due to its soft consistency. This produces plump, natural-appearing lips that do not appear stiff and ‘overdone.’
While patients should expect correction to persist at least four to six months, in some patients results from Juvederm may last up to 1 year. However, this can vary from patient to patient.
