Dysport® is a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that are minimized, not your expressions.
Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions1, which means they can even develop in younger adults. One injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. In other words, no frozen look, just natural-looking results. You can control your look instead of your look controlling you.
How long does Dysport last?
The majority of users see improvement in just 2–3 days after treatment. In just one 10- to 20-minute treatment, Dysport may help improve the look of your frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 4 months.
Restylane® Product Line
Products in the Restylane family add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Restylane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, and eventually breaks down naturally.
The L in Restylane L stands for Lidocaine. By combining lidocaine with Restylane, Restylane-L can help reduce discomfort during and after treatment. Restylane-L is injected into the skin with an ultrafine needle to plump the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) or into your lips for patients over the age of 21 for lip enhancement.
Restylane-L effects generally last about six months and gradually disappears from the body.
Restylane Defyne is a dermal filler injected under the (facial) skin. Once in place, it helps smooth away your “laugh lines” – the wrinkles and folds that may form at the sides of your nose and run down toward the corners of your mouth
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and the lines that run from the sides of the nose toward the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) become more pronounced.
Restylane Defyne is injected into the facial skin through a small needle to smooth facial wrinkles and folds (laugh lines), resulting in a more youthful appearance of the skin. For most patients, the procedure only takes 15 – 30 minutes.
Effects of Restylane Defyne can last for up to 12 months.
Restylane Refyne is similar to Defyne. However, the hyaluronic acid gel formulation in this product is a bit more flexible than that of Restylane Defyne. Refyne is better for treating moderate-to-severe facial folds and wrinkles. Refyne works best on folds and wrinkles that are relatively superficial.
Restylane Defyne is designed for use in your nasolabial lines, between your nose and mouth, and marionette lines, from the corners of your mouth to your chin. While Defyne is just as effective as Refyne, each one is more suitable for certain applications due to the particular muscle and skin movements of each area.

Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face and hands.
Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks, midface area, and the back of the hands to help complete your aesthetic look — for face and hands.
Restylane Lyft patients have reported significant improvement in the appearance of the wrinkles and folds around the mouth that lasted for 6 months.
Silkier, smoother, natural-looking lips
Finally, a filler that can help you achieve your ideal lips. Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth.
Because of its small particle size – Restylane Silk is also ideal for correcting volume loss in the upper eyelid, tear troughs, and eyebrow.
Restylane Silk results typically last from six to 12 months.
Patient treated with 2 mL of Restylane Silk in the lips and 1 mL of Restylane in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. 4 weeks after treatment.
Sculptra® Aesthetic 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.
Sculptra acts as a bio-activator and extremely powerful collagen stimulator. It stimulates your own collagen, allowing tissue to volumize gradually. Over time, the Poly-L-Lactic Acid dissipates as your own tissue takes its place. This gives you a more gradual result, as the smoothness and volume only become visible once your skin has built this extra collagen.
What Areas can be Treated?
Sunken cheeks and temples are by far the most common areas treated. However, many patients see great benefits from Sculptra when injected in the chin and the jawline too. Even more, many women are choosing to reverse the signs of aging on their chests by having Sculptra injected in their chest wrinkles and folds.
When Will I See Results?
Results are not immediate. Results generally take 4-6 months, depending upon a variety of factors, like volume loss and age. Patients will continue seeing changes through the 9th month, and at that time full results are expected.
