Sculptra is an injectable made from synthetic material that mimics natural collagen in the body called poly-L-lactic acid.

Botox is made of a protein gathered from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum and purified. The purified product is then administered by physicians to wrinkles, creases and frown lines through a short series of tiny injections. Botox is introduced directly to the muscles that create lines and wrinkles resulting decreased depth and definition. The injection series can be completed in around 10 minutes, with no down time. Within days lines will begin to fade and results commonly last up to 4 months.
Dysport is an injectable that works by blocking the signal sent from the nerve to the muscles. By limiting this signal and the activity of the muscles, the movements that cause frown lines are reduced for a period of time and the skin has an opportunity to heal itself. Frown lines will fade over the course of several months and the skin will begin to look smoother and softer. Dysport is given as a short series of injections and can be finished in as little as 10 to 20 minutes allowing patients to go on with their day as usual. Anesthetic is available but is unnecessary for many patients.

Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically made to add volume in a way that mimics the body’s own hyaluronic acid.
