BOTOX® for Hyperhidrosis
BOTOX® is FDA-approved for severe underarm sweating when topical agents don’t work. BOTOX® treatment helps control this situation by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands, which stops the excessive sweating. During the procedure, a small amount of BOTOX is injected through a very fine needle into the affected underarm area. Most insurance plans cover this procedure.
RESTYLANE is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. It is a clear gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. This synthetic acid carries no risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for treatment are the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth) and perioral area (lines around the mouth). With its unique ability to bind with water, RESTYLANE remains in your skin for many months with treatments needing to be repeated usually only twice a year. The procedure is quick, usually taking no more than 20 minutes, and the results often are immediate.
Formerly known as Radience, Radiesse is a synthetic injectable filler that non-surgically reduces most wrinkles, creases and scars by augmenting your body’s natural collagen supply. Composed of microspheres in a biocompatible gel, Radiesse is made from the same minerals found in our bones, so it carries no risk of allergic reaction (unlike collagen, which requires a skin test) – just one of its advantages over alternative treatments. Radiesse can be used on many areas of the body, but the most effective areas treated are the lips, nasolabial folds, peri-oral lines, depressed scars and oral commissures. Treatments typically take 15 minutes and require only local anesthetic.
