CosMedica Injections offers a wide variety of safe, FDA approved injectables & peels. Safety and efficacy are of utmost importance, this is why we only use the most effective, proven, name brand products to achieve beautiful, natural looking results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA approved treatment that is excellent for reducing moderate to severe frown lines between your brows and smoothing wrinkles in your forehead and around the eyes (crow's feet). BOTOX® is a purified protein that has the ability to safely relax the muscles to which it is applied. It actually blocks the nerve impulses to the injected muscles, decreasing the muscle activity that causes the stubborn lines to form. Injections are performed in a way to not change one's natural expression. Any untreated facial muscles continue to contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions. Your healthcare provider will determine the exact placement of each injection to get the results that are perfect for you.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick, easy, nonsurgical treatment with little to no downtime. Injections are administered by trained medical professionals. The procedure only takes about 15 minutes. After a Botox Cosmetic treatment, you may normally go about your day. Although it is considered a no downtime procedure, your healthcare provider may advise that you take some precautions after your procedure. Noticeable results are typically seen in as little as 3-5 days post injection and results last, on average, 4 months.
Our FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers include: Juvederm® Ultra XC, Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC, Volbella®, Vollure®, Voluma®, Restylane-L®, Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Defyne.
Hyaluronic fillers are dermal fillers that restore lost facial volume, giving the skin a more youthful appearance. Hyaluronic fillers may be used to correct a variety of skin imperfections such as fine lines, moderate to severe wrinkles, volume loss in lips, volume loss in cheeks, and acne scarring. Typical treatment areas include: smile lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, cheek hollows, vertical lip lines, and lips.
The Juvederm® family of fillers, the Restylane® family of fillers, and Belotero® are composed of pure hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in human tissue. It is produced in a laboratory from non-animal sources, which limits the risk of allergic reaction or animal-based disease transmission.
What is the difference between the different products? The primary difference is in the actual gel particle size. Juvederm® Ultra XC, Volbella®, Vollure®, Restylane-L®, and Restylane® Silk have smaller gel particle size and are ideal for finer lines and gentle plumping of an area. Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC, Voluma® XC, and Restylane® Lyft have larger gel particle size and are designed for deeper injection and moderate to severe wrinkles & hollows. Your medical provider will analyze your skin, discuss your options, and decide which product is ideal for your specific needs.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injectable gel is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are available with lidocaine (an anesthetic) infused into the syringe, decreasing any discomfort associated with the procedure. They are administered by injection with an ultrafine needle to a topically anesthetized area. Correction is immediate and results typically last 6 months- 2 years.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen, an underlying cause of facial aging, for results that can last more than two years.
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra® Aesthetic is different than traditional Hyaluronic Acid fillers. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra® Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles, folds, & areas of volume loss.
The treatment is minimally invasive with little to no downtime. Topical numbing cream is typically applied to the treated area to increase levels of comfort. The procedure itself only takes about 45 minutes. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.
