Botox® • Kybella™ • Juvederm® • Restylane® • Raddiesse®
These FDA approved injectable skin treatments relax the muscles that cause those vexing “dynamic wrinkles.” As a result, skin appears smoother while wrinkles become noticeably smaller and often disappear completely. Each injection is performed by Dr. Sanders, a Diamond level cosmetic provider for Allergan, making him one of the most sought after surgeons for injectable procedures in Louisiana. We currently offer Botox® Cosmetic, and injectable fillers Juvederm® XC, Juvederm® Voluma XC, Restylane, and Radiesse. In addition, Dr. Sanders is the only doctor in North Louisiana now offering FDA-approved Kybella™ injections which help contour the chin and neckline and reduce the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin.
JUVÉDERM® XC is a non-surgical FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) gel filler. Hyaluronic acid is actually a naturally-occurring polysaccharide found in the human body that acts as a cushioning and lubricating agent for our joints, nerves, hair, skin, and eyes. Additionally, about 50% of the body’s supply is located in the skin tissue. As we age, our body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid declines, leading to dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging.
Juvederm® XC is used to instantly smooth mild to moderate wrinkles around your nose and mouth, reduce acne scarring, and make lips plump and full. It can also be used to fill under eye hollows and reduce wrinkles on the hands. Juvederm® XC is a softer cosmetic filler which makes it the best dermal filler to achieve fuller lips.
Juvederm® XC must be applied via injection in to the mid to deep dermis. There is a big misconception that when applying products with hyaluronic acid topically, the skin will absorb the acid and moisten the skin while reducing wrinkles. However, the hyaluronic molecules are too big to pass through the skin and therefore must be injected directly into the skin to fill lines and wrinkles. Treatment can be performed during a brief office visit. You will see results immediately, however your final result will be visible within 3-5 days after treatment when temporary swelling has subsided.
Results from Juvederm® XC can last from 8-12 months.
Results will vary by patient.
Like JUVÉDERM® XC, Juvederm® Voluma XC is a non-surgical FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) gel filler. Juvederm® Voluma XC, however, is a much thicker gel filler used on very specific areas of the face.
As we age, our body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid declines, leading to dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. Juvederm® Voluma XC restores volume, provides contouring and smoothes wrinkles in the cheeks and chin to correct age-related volume loss. Juvederm® Voluma is the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler designed for these specific facial regions. Because of its thicker consistency and long-lasting effects, Voluma should not be used under your eyes, in your lips, or in the lines between your nose and mouth.
Juvederm® Voluma XC is injected deep into the dermis on the upper cheek, middle cheek or chin so that it lays right on top of the facial bones. Treatment can be performed during a brief office visit. You will see results from treatment immediately. You may continue to see changes in your appearance for up to 2 weeks following the injection as the Juvederm® Voluma XC solution settles.
Because of the required depth of the injection in the skin, results from Juvederm® Voluma XC can last up to 2 years. However, repeat injections, especially during the early stages of treatment, are encouraged to produce the best continuous and long-term results.
Results will vary by patient.
