Botox, Captique, Collagen, and Juvederm Can Help You Look Younger and More Refreshed

Aug 29, 2008
Injectable filles can be used to reduce wrinkles, lift sagging skin, and help skin look generally younger and better.

BOTOX Cosmetic
Facial furrows form mainly in response to normal aging (increased by sun exposure) and the pull of underlying muscles. BOTOX Cosmetic works by decreasing the pull of these muscles thereby allowing treatment of some skin creases without surgery.

Botox has become a sensation in recent years, and with good reason. Rather than surgically sculpting the shape of your face, these gentle injections simple ease it back into a more relaxed, youthful glow. The mechanism is as simple as it is effective.

BOTOX Cosmetic is the brand name for botulinum toxin type A, nature's most potent blocker of nerve impulses. BOTOX Cosmetic works by partially blocking the nerve to the injected muscle.

BOTOX Cosmetic injections are best on the upper third of the face. Forehead lines, furrows between the eyebrows, and lines around the eyes (crow's feet) respond favorably to BOTOX Cosmetic. Frown lines (below the mouth) and chin creases may also be improved with a BOTOX Cosmetic injection, but response here varies by individuals.

Please remember, BOTOX Cosmetic injections are temporary. The effect wears off in about four to six months. If desired, the injection may be repeated, and modified to achieve a different result each time.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted market approval for Captique Injectable gel -- a new dermal filler product based on Genzyme's non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA) technology.

The way your skin looks is directly related to the way your skin is supported. As we age, the natural support layers in the skin break down resulting in the formation of wrinkles.

CAPTIQUE

Captique, a clear gel containing a purified form of hyaluronic acid, adds volume lost during the aging process by temporarily smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles.

Captique is injected just under the skin's surface in order to temporarily correct wrinkles.

Captique is the newest hyaluronic acid entry into the U.S. dermal filler marketplace. It is indicated for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and is manufactured by Genzyme. Inamed is Genzyme's exclusive U.S. marketing and distribution partner for Captique.

COLLAGEN

Collagen, also know as Zyderm and Zyplast, is a safe non-surgical approach to replacing the skin's natural collagen and smoothing out facial lines. These lines are caused by the wearing down of your skin's natural collagen, which is a network of fibers providing the supporting structure for your skin. Collagen Replacement Therapy helps to smooth facial lines and augment the skin by supplementing the collagen under the skin. Collagen can be injected in vertical lip lines and along the edge of the lip to enhance the definition of the lip border and make the lips appear fuller and more youthful.

The procedure is performed in the office and takes about 20 minutes. It is important to have a simple test on your forearm to make sure you are not sensitive to Collagen Implants. 97% will show no reaction to the skin test and can be treated. Results are immediate, but not permanent. Just like your natural collagen, injectable collagen begins to lose its form and will eventually wear down. Full correction occurs and is maintained only with a series

JUVEDERM

As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvederm injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen! Recently approved by the FDA, Juvederm injectable gel is a "next-generation" dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds, the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvederm injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvederm compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. And, almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvederm injectable gel and another dermal filler preferred Juvederm! In addition, Juvederm injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
