Dermal Fillers and Injectables

Tighten your skin up

Injectables

There are numerous types of injectables that can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tighten skin. Depending on how severe or mild your wrinkles are, and where they are located, NuVo Aesthetics’ certified staff can guide you.

  • Botox

Botox is available for anyone looking to erase years of damage done to their skin and rejuvenate their skin’s natural glow. This in is perfect for anyone on a tight schedule, as this procedure can be completed in a half an hour and no recovery time is necessary. It is one of the most extensively studied aesthetic medical treatments and it has been trusted for years as a safe and effective way to treat aging skin.

  • Dysport

For those who are bothered by frown lines between the eyebrow, Dysport is the perfect solution. This prescription injection provides long lasting results with minimal downtime. Like Botox, it is a great option for anyone looking to smooth facial lines and wrinkles in a non-invasive manner. For certain areas of the skin such as the forehead, some people find Dysport to be even more effective than Botox. Consult your doctor in regards to which is better for you.

  • Xeomin

Xeomin in is the newest anti-aging procedure to hit the market. It offers patients an affordable and effective way to temporarily minimize unwanted frown lines and wrinkles. It is perfect for anyone seeking younger and smoother looking skin. Xeomin’s main selling point is that there is less risk of allergies than other injectables not including Botox due to the removal of proteins that are injected with Botox.

More information about Botox® and XEOMIN® Smoothes Lines
Over the years, we use our facial muscles repeatedly. Smiling, frowning, laughing, squinting – all of these expressions cause wrinkles and grooves over time as the muscles repeatedly contract. NuVo uses XEOMIN (pronounced ‘ZEE-oh-min’), the latest wrinkle-reducing treatment to receive FDA approval, and Botox® Cosmetic.

Botox and Xeomin are used to smooth crow’s feet, forehead creases, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Injections are done using a tiny needle and a very small amount of toxin that is injected into the specific muscles that commonly cause frown lines and wrinkles.  It works by blocking nerve impulses to temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.

Are there any side effects?  Temporary bruising is the most common side effect. In some cases (rare) the toxin can migrate and cause temporary weakness in nearby muscles. If your goal is to look younger than you are, Botox and Xeomin can deliver a more youthful appearance by smoothing out dynamic wrinkles within three to 10 days! Benefits last an average of three to six months.

 

  • Restylane

Restylane is available for anyone looking to restore natural definition to their face and enhance its features without surgery. This is a procedure that uses injectable hyaluronic acid gel to reduce wrinkles, add volume to cheeks or make lips fuller. As Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, the Restylane injection is designed to work just like the natural substance. It is biodegradable and can be used with the other injectables to achieve desired results. Restylane in  is an excellent option for those seeking a non-invasive way to restore youth to their face.

  • Radiesse

Radiesse is a dermal injectable filler that is mainly used to smooth over moderate to severe wrinkles in the face and particularly smile lines around the mouth through plumping your cheeks. It is FDA approved and is also occasionally used to improve volume in the backs of the hands. On average, the filler lasts for a year or longer.

RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler Plumps Your Cheeks

As we age, our skin looses the collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that gives our skin and faces volume, support and suppleness.  The result is facial lines, wrinkles and sagging – the “hollow” cheeks of age.

But RADIESSE can erase those lines and folds, as it adds instant, natural, youthful volume to your face. It can be used for cheeks, smile lines, marionette lines, the corners of your mouth, pre-jowls and your chin.

RADIESSE acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This production of natural collagen continues for several months, which means the volumizing effects continue even after RADIESSE is injected.RADIESSE is clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.

By utilizing one or more types of fillers, NuVo can give you a “Liquid Face Lift” without the surgery!

 

  • Belotero

Belotero is an injectable filler that is approved by the FDA. It works in much the same way as fillers like Juvederm and Restylane and adds volume to the face and smooths the skin, temporarily eliminating wrinkles and fine lines. Made of hyaluronic acid–a natural substance which helps in hydration of skin, Belotero offers the ability to treat a bigger area on the face.

BELOTERO BALANCE Integrates into Your Skin. BELOTERO is as unique as you are!  It’s specifically designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours.  By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you. BELOTERO is made of hyaluronic acid, which exists naturally as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, which results in immediate results.

 

  • Bellafill

Bellafill is also used to correct facial wrinkles and smile lines. It is approved by Health Canada and is the only injectable filler that has been proven safe over a five year term. The way it] works with your body’s natural collagen production, it instantly adds volume to your skin where you have fine lines and wrinkles. It may be a more desirable option if you prefer longer term results.

Dermal Fillers to Plump up your Face for Youthful Contours

** NEW **  – Bellafill® – For Youthful Looks that Last up to Five Years!

Bellafill is a smooth, collagen-based filler with PMMA microspheres that restores rather than just fills, for natural, enduring results.  In a clinical study, satisfaction and effectiveness were established through five years!

The collagen gel in Bellafill provides immediate volume and lift.  Over time, the collagen is absorbed by the body.  The PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports production of your body’s own collage for lasting correction.

The microspheres in Bellafill are half the diameter of a human hair, so small they are virtually invisible to the eye. PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) has been one of the most widely used materials in medicine for 65 years.

 

All seven injectables mentioned above are FDA approved and administered by certified staff at NuVo Aesthetics.  Make sure to consult about which one should be used in which area and what will be the most beneficial to you and give you optimum results.Because we have done hundreds of injections of Botox and Xeomin, along with dermal fillers, such as BELOTERO® AND Radiesse®, we have a practiced, artful eye, to ensure that your outcome is natural, and never looks overdone!

 

 Side Effects for any Dermal Fillers:

As with any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically go away on their own. For post-care instructions, click here. There is very little to no downtime associated with dermal fillers; most patients return to their normal daily activities right after their visit at NuVo.
