Kybella

double chin treatment | double chin shots Port Orange FLKYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection, the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug available that contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as a “double chin,” is now available. Submental fullness is a common, yet under-treated aesthetic condition that is often resistant to diet and exercise alone and influenced by several factors, including aging, genetics and weight gain.

Each in-office treatment session with KYBELLA™ is typically 15-20 minutes. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA™, re-treatment is not expected.

With this nonsurgical treatment, many patients experience visible results in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to six treatments may be administered. Treatment with KYBELLA™ is customized to the patient’s aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and formation of areas of hardness in the treatment area. In clinical trials, the incidence and severity of most side effects decreased with subsequent KYBELLA™ treatments.
KYBELLA™ has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA™.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® | JUVÉDERM® | Radiesse® | Sculptra® | Ormond Beach FL | Palm Coast FL | Port Orange FLBOTOX® is the brand name for botulinum toxin A, a highly purified therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. When injected in small doses in specific areas, BOTOX injections block nerve muscles responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles. In this way, BOTOX smoothes the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry.
Using a very fine needle, a qualified physician or physician assistant will inject BOTOX Cosmetic into the designated muscles in your face that are causing lines and wrinkles. You may experience brief, mild discomfort during the injection. Taking only a few minutes, BOTOX treatment requires no anesthetic. Immediately following the BOTOX treatment, some patients may experience mild bruising, which will go away shortly. You will see your wrinkles begin to fade within days; with a maximum effect in 3-4 weeks. The effects of BOTOX Cosmetic typically last up to 3-6 months, although many have reported results lasting up to a full year. After several BOTOX treatments, the results may be prolonged.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatment will relax the muscles in your face and soften the skin, giving you a more relaxed and youthful appearance. For optimum results, many patients choose to use BOTOX in conjunction with fillers, skin rejuvenation therapy, and/or laser skin resurfacing.
Outcome will vary among patients and additional treatments may be necessary. There is no guarantee that wrinkles or folds will completely disappear.


JUVÉDERM® Voluma HC Injectable Gel

Parks Dermatology Center is one of the first offices to offer JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC to our patients.  This injectable gel is the first and only 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, in patients over the age of 21. It's different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
The injection itself usually takes approximately 30 minutes. There is minimal recovery time. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites.
Some temporary symptoms, such as redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps, may occur but usually clear up on their own within a week. Any swelling at the injection site can be minimized with an ice pack for a brief period.

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®

BOTOX® | JUVÉDERM® | Radiesse® | Sculptra® | Ormond Beach FL | Palm Coast FL | Port Orange FLJUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is a smooth consistency gel capable of restoring volume to skin and smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps add volume and hydration.
It is non-animal dermal filler of smooth consistency that allows for easy injection and instantly natural results.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is for correcting deeper and more severe wrinkles and folds. This allows for a completely personalized treatment tailored by our healthcare professionals to meet your needs. The results make you look naturally younger, refreshed and can last up to one year.
The injection itself usually takes approximately 30 minutes. There is minimal recovery time with Juvéderm. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites.
Some temporary symptoms, such as redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps, may occur but usually clear up on their own within a week. Any swelling at the injection site can be minimized with an ice pack for a brief period.

What are the results?

Most patients see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas and only need one treatment to achieve optimal results. Results vary and touch up treatments may be required to maintain results, but Juvéderm can smooth lines and wrinkles for up to a year. Outcome will vary among patients and additional treatments may be necessary. There is no guarantee that wrinkles or folds will completely disappear.

Restylane and Restylane Lyft®

Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement.  Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), the corners of the mouth and marionette lines — the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.

Restylane® Lyft is approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in
patients over the age of 21. This is in addition to treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds
(smile lines).  Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.

 


Belotero®

Introducing BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler. A dermal filler as unique as you are. Specially 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.¹
BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.

Radiesse®

BOTOX® | JUVÉDERM® | Radiesse® | Sculptra® | Ormond Beach FL | Palm Coast FL | Port Orange FLRadiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that has been FDA-approved to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by augmenting the skin's natural collagen supply. It is a safe, effective and long-lasting alternative to injectable collagen and other dermal fillers for not only smoothing wrinkles but also adding volume and contour to the face for an overall younger, fuller, smoother appearance. With just one or two Radiesse treatments, you can enjoy a beautiful, natural look that lasts.
Radiesse is composed of microspheres in a water-based gel. The microspheres—made of a substance called calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA)—stimulate the production of collagen to smooth lines and wrinkles and also add younger-looking suppleness to the face. There is no need for pre-treatment allergy testing, and it is absorbed naturally by the body over time.

What areas does Radiesse treat?

Radiesse is especially effective for filling and correcting smile lines, nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth), marionette lines (from the corners of the mouth to the chin), and other lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It can also be used to treat depressed scars and oral commissures.
Treatments typically take 30 minutes and require only local anesthetic. There is little to no downtime; many patients return to their normal activities after their appointment.
Patients typically need only one or two treatments to achieve the full effect of Radiesse. Your doctor may recommend a follow-up appointment to determine whether you would benefit from additional treatments.

When will I see the results of my Radiesse treatment? How long do results last?

Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last for up to a year or more. Touch-up treatments can prolong Radiesse's effects.

Sculptra®

Sculptra® is an injectable product that corrects the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) by restoring lost volume in the skin. Lipoatrophy can result in sunken cheeks, indentations and hollow eyes. Injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin, Sculptra provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas.
Sculptra's main component is an alpha hydroxy acid called poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA. It is safe, synthetic (artificially created), biocompatible (can be used harmlessly in the body), biodegradable (able to be broken down in the body) and long-lasting. PLLA has been used for more than 20 years in many surgical products, including dissolvable sutures and soft tissue implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will happen on the day of treatment?
At your Sculptra treatment session, you will be asked to remove any makeup, and the area of skin to be treated will be swabbed clean. Then, your doctor will administer Sculptra in a series of injections with a very fine needle. Afterwards, you will be given an ice pack to reduce swelling. It is important to massage the treated area to ensure that the material is evenly distributed beneath the skin. Sculptra's effects are not immediate. Improvement in skin volume occurs gradually.
Will I need more than one treatment?
More than one treatment will be necessary to achieve the best results. Patients with more severe lipoatrophy generally need additional injections. In your follow-up appointment a few weeks after your first Sculptra session, your doctor will determine whether you need a touch-up treatment.
How long do the effects last?
The results of Sculptra vary from patient to patient. In a clinical study, the effects were shown to last for up to two years after the first treatment session in most patients.
