Sculptra® is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments. Sculptra® can last over 2 years.
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
Radiesse® is a synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a gel carrier of sterile water for injection, glycerin and sodium carboxymethylcellulose. Radiesse® is indicated for subdermal implantation for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and it is also intended for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss.
Like Botox, Jeuveau® has a molecular weight of 900 kDa, but they’re produced in different facilities and are derived from different strains of the same toxin. (Botox, or onabotulinumtoxinA, is made by Allergan in Westport, Ireland; Jeuveau®, or prabotulinumtoxinA, comes out of Seoul, South Korea.) The risks and potential side effects listed by the companies are also identical.

This lady wanted a little more refreshed look. We added volume to her cheeks with Radiesse to help replace some of the volume loss and we added 1 syringe of Restylane under the eyes to help with the bags.
