ZO Skin Health    This is a relatively new arrival and comes from the founder of Obagi.  ZO Skin Health has an impressive line up of products that that appear to have significant clinical results.  Some are prescription-required others are not.  Our esthetician can guide you through the products and make recommendations.  We offer samples of ZO products after consultation and this is an effective way to “test” products prior to purchase.

Fillers, including Juvederm, are a group of substances that for the most part, are used to improve deeper lines and wrinkles of the lower face and around the lips.  There are four types of Juvederm:  Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC.  The XC formulations contain added lidocaine, an anesthetic to make the injection more comfortable. Juvederm Ultra XC is offered by our clinic and is favored by many dermatologists and plastic surgeons for its versatility and long-lasting qualities.

   Fillers such as Juvederm described above add volume to specific lines and wrinkles whereas Juvderm Voluma takes a different approach: The filler is injected deeper into the cheeks so that volume is added to the upper third of the face thereby restoring youthful contours of the cheek.  This approach is very effective and looks natural.

A more recent advancement is Sculptra, which is not actually a filler but rather represents a biostimulatory product.  Results are gradual and the product is designed to stimulate your own body to add volume which is lost during normal aging.  This approach of correcting the underlying volume deficit is currently the most promising development in the field of facial rejuvenation. Results last 2 years at least with a gradual steady improvement over several months after injection.
