Dermal fillers are used to enhance our client’s already beautiful features and to restore volume in areas where volume has been lost. Most of the fillers used at Picasso medical Aesthetics are made of hyaluronic acid with the exception of Radiesse which a calcium-based product is. Most fillers can last anywhere from 9-12 months based on the client’s lifestyle. For clients who smoke, sunbathe, exercise heavily, or drink daily fillers may not last the full 9-12 months.

Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a next-generation dermal filler.
it is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel which gets injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, specially those around the nose and mouth, like your " smile lines" or "parentheses" ( nasolabial folds: the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth)
Over recent years, hyaluronic acid has emerged as what some call a "miracle compound" for filling in wrinkles and facial contouring. New studies show ho crossed-line hyaluronic acid promotes collagen deposition i the deeper parts of the skin, which helps thicken the skin and provides more longevity. Meaning, it temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face that feels very natural.
Juvéderm ™ is a hyaluronic acid in the form of viscoelastic gel, which is transparent and homogeneous. That gives it four major benefits:
It is obtained by bacterial fermentation and is of non-animal origin
It does not require prior skin testing
It is highly biocompatible
There is far less swelling compared to other fillers. After treatment, patients go out that day!

Neuromodulators are used to decrease muscle movement by blocking communication between the nerve endings and the muscles. This decrease in muscle movement will lead to decreased expression lines in the areas being treated. There is currently 4 neuromodulators in the market: Botox, Dysport, Jeaveau, and Xeomin. After placement of the neuromodulator product best results will be noticed at about 2 weeks post treatment. Most results last about 3-4 months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as eye creases, marionette lines and glabellar furrows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. Such dynamic wrinkles are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles that occur every time you smile, laugh or frown.
Lines that are caused can give people a tired, angry or sad appearance – even when they aren't necessarily experiencing those emotions. While you may have earned every one of your worry lines, you don't have to show them anymore.
Subtle expression lines and more advanced furrows can be treated by using BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause facial lines to form over time. For over a decade, ophthalmologists have employed BOTOX® Cosmetic for its original intention; the treatment of blepharospasm (abnormal blinking or eyelid tic). Physicians also have been utilizing BOTOX® Cosmetic for years as a cosmetic treatment for correcting visible signs of stress and aging.
One 10-minute treatment, involving a few tiny injections, and within days there's a noticeable improvement which can last up to 4 months.
Smile. Laugh. Frown. Make all the facial expressions you want and stop worrying about wrinkles!
Dysport is the trade name for type-A botulinum toxin. Dysport is the only FDA approved and a most recent competitor to Botox, which also utilizes the type-A botulinum toxin, but is more concentrated than Dysport. Side effects are similar between the two facial injectables.
They both relax the muscles that are responsible for causing facial wrinkles and fine lines.
Dysport was approved for use in the United States in May 2009 though it has been in use in other countries for many years. Initially, Dysport was only approved for cosmetic use to treat the lines between the eyebrows, which are known as "frown lines". but has now been approved for usage on the neck bands, forehead, crow's feet and around the mouth with nice, natural-looking results.
Botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. – which is the active ingredient in XEOMIN® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines.
Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.
