A combination of factors may cause wrinkles and lines in the face. Causes include cellular changes, collagen reduction, or damage caused by sun damage and environmental toxins. Repeated muscle contractions resulting from frowning, squinting, or eyebrow raising cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually leading to the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® targets muscle under the skin and temporarily decreases the underlying muscle activity in adults which causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. The result is a smoother, fresher look.

KYBELLA ® The active ingredient is a synthetic deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps decompose and absorb dietary fat. KYBELLA ® kills fat cells when injected into the fat beneath the chin, resulting in a reduction in fullness under the chin. Once these cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Once you reach your desired aesthetic goal, further treatment is not expected. May be used for even better results with CoolSculpting. Discount packages offered when Kybella and Coolsculpting used together to minimize double chin and to permanently remove fat in the neck area.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC is the only filler that is approved by the FDA to increase fullness in the lips and soften the appearance of perioral lines, or “lipstick lines”, for patients over the age of 21. The crystal-clear gel is injected into and around the lips using a needle to plump the lips for lip augmentation and smooth the lines around the mouth for up to a year. Lidocaine gel is used to reduce any pain or discomfort from the injection.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is one of the most popular fillers worldwide and is made up of non-animal hyaluronic acid. Ultra Plus XC has lidocaine to help decrease pain when injecting the sensitive lip area. This filler adds fullness to lips and is the first filler to last for up to one year in the lips. Dr. Melinda Silva has specialized lip training to help you with smoother, fuller and natural looking lips. Dr. Silva is also trained to do the popular “millennial 50:50 lips” for your sexiest and plumpest lips ever.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC helps to smooth out the deep lines around your nose (nasolabial or “laugh lines”) and mouth areas. It is also a great filler to improve “puppet lines” or marionette lines which are vertical lines that run from the corners of the mouth toward the direction of the chin. These deep lines are caused by loss of collagen and fat and make you look angry, sad and older. Don’t delay, the longer you wait, the more difficult it is to correct the defects for a natural look. Dr. Melinda Silva is an anti-aging specialist and will use her 23+ years of experience and clinical insight to give you a more youthful look.
