Our Injectable Filler Treatments
Kitagawa Dermatology offers a full line of the best and latest in wrinkle treatment products, such as an injectable filler, to reduce fine lines and creases or deeper, more troublesome wrinkles.
Botox is an injectable made from Botulium toxin. Using a very fine needle, very small doses of the filler are injected into targeted muscles. This allows your muscles to relax, leaving the face looking softer and smoother. The Botox amount varies from patient to patient, all with the goal of getting more natural-looking results.
Botox is effective for softening current wrinkles, preventing future ones, treating migraines, and reducing excessive sweating.
For “dynamic” wrinkles – those lines and creases caused by facial movement that disappear once the face stops moving – Xeomin injectable neuromodulator is highly effective as a frown line treatment as well as wrinkle treatment for lines caused by squinting and laughing.
Xeomin, derived from incobotulinum toxin A, offsets the effects of reduced skin elasticity that cause stubborn wrinkles. The results show within a week and last as long as six months. The Xeomin injectable neuromodulator treats forehead lines, wrinkles between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet.
Juvéderm is a biocompatible injectable dermal filler developed from hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar within the body that cushions and lubricates parts of the body such as the joints and eyes. Juvéderm is designed to be a shaping and volumizing injectable filler for the face that reduces facial lines, forehead creases, and nasolabial folds. Results are noticed within a week and can last from 9 to 12 months. Should the injection need to be reversed, Juvéderm can be treated with hyaluronidase.
Restylane is an injectable filler gel made from hyaluronic acid. After injection, Restylane gradually plumps and smooths the skin to give it a more youthful appearance.
Restylane is an effective wrinkle treatment, targeting smile lines around the mouth and lips, and smoothing out lines under and around the eyes. It’s also a popular lip enhancement injection and can be reversed with hyaluronidase should this be needed.
Restylane Lyft is another hyaluronic acid wrinkle treatment developed to correct deeper facial folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane Lyft helps restore the body’s supply of natural hyaluronic acid and rejuvenate the skin’s volume.
After injection, the Restylane Lyft injectable filler absorbs moisture from the body, which fills in the empty areas beneath the skin, immediately giving it a fuller, more glowing appearance. Restylane Lyft also treats unwelcome forehead lines, plumps thin lips, and can be reversed with hyaluronidase.
Radiesse is a long-lasting injectable filler. It is made of minute non-allergenic calcium hydroxylapatatite (CaHA) particles in a smooth gel of carboxymethyl cellulose. Once injected, Radiesse smooths wrinkles and stimulates the body’s production of collagen, further enhancing youthful-looking skin.
Radiesse is effective for deeper, more troublesome wrinkles, and results can last one to two years. Additionally, this injectable filler is an excellent choice augmenting the chin or cheekbones.
