Cosmetic Injectables, Fillers, and Volumizers offer non-surgical alternatives for softening facial lines, and restoring volume and fullness to your face. All injections at South Shore Skin Center are performed by our fully licensed, expertly trained, and experienced Cosmetic Nurses and Physicians.
Botox® Cosmetic used at South Shore Skin Center is FDA-approved and designed to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. It works by relaxing the muscles that cause the lines and wrinkles that develop as a result of the natural aging process.
Fillers help to diminish the signs of the aging process by ‘smoothing’ lines and wrinkles. With an appointment as short as 30 minutes, you can begin to minimize those lines and wrinkles and begin to restore a more youthful appearance. Our experienced staff will customize a program specifically for you.
We offer a variety of the highest quality fillers, including Juvederm®, Belotero Balance®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Restylane® Silk, and Restylane® Lyft.
When expertly administered, volumizers such as Juvederm® Voluma XC and Sculptra® can restore lost collagen and volume that naturally disappears over time. Our skin experts and medical professionals at South Shore Skin Center can produce natural-looking results that can last one to two years with just a few sessions.
Age doesn’t have to look the way it used to look. It can appear subtler. It can be more gradual. Shouldn’t your anti-aging be just as subtle? Welcome to the new age of anti-aging.
Introducing Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds** that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. It is not a quick fix. It is not an overnight miracle, but it is long lasting. It is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. It replaces lost collagen, giving you a more natural looking appearance without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years. * So you have more time to see how sensational subtle can be.
How does Sculptra® Aesthetic Work?
Sculptra® Aesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen. Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, * as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance.
To be successful, it requires a series of treatments administered by a Sculptra® trained physician. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. However, the number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session can vary from person to person.
Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra® Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. * It subtly corrects these facial wrinkles gradually over time. The goal is to provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last up to 2 years.
Side effects of Sculptra® Aesthetic may include injection site discomfort, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, and swelling.
*Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra® Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials.
**Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. Clinical trial ended at 25 months.
