What is JUVÉDERM®?

JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting.

Dr. Rivera and Dr. Panchal offer their expertise in determining the formula of Juvéderm that’s right for you. Options include:

  • Juvéderm® XC smoothes lines around the mouth and nasolabial folds
  • Juvéderm Volbella® XC addresses vertical lip lines
  • Juvéderm Vollure® softens moderate to severe parenthesis lines and wrinkles around the mouth with long lasting results for up to 18 months.

You may have more than one application in a session. Juvéderm treatments usually last about six months to a year, and regular visits help you maintain the results.

Why choose BELOTERO?

  • Helps smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines and wrinkles
  • Feels natural to the touch
  • Maintains normal movement and facial expressions

Belotero naturally smooths moderate and severe facial lines and wrinkles in the following treatment areas:

Belotero lasts about six months to a year in most patients.

Why choose kybella®?

  • It is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
  • Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
  • Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

Treatment areas:

  • Submental fat also called “double chin”
  • Off label areas like underarms and buttocks can also be treated. Call for more information.

Radiesse stimulates your body to produce more of the skin-tightening and skin-strengthening compound known as collagen. It’s primarily used to replenish lost volume in the face and hands, and results can last a year or more in many patients.

Why choose RADIESSE®?

  • It is the filler that immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen
  • It is clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients
  • RADIESSE® patients are highly satisfied
  • It is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine to significantly reduce injection related pain

Treatment areas:

  • Corners of the mouth
  • Cheek volume
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Pre-Jowl folds
  • Hands

Filler Q& A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers consist of a gel-like substance that Dr. Rivera and Dr. Panchal inject just below the skin to smooth lines and restore lost volume. The certified staff at Bella Mia Medical offers:

  • Revanesse® VersaTM
  • Juvéderm®
  • Belotero®
  • Radiesse®

Each formula has a different texture, consistency, and injection depth to provide the desired results. As expert medical providers of fillers, Dr. Rivera and Dr. Panchal examine your particular lines, creases, and folds to determine which fillers to use and where to inject them so you get optimal results.

How do fillers work?

Revanesse, Juvéderm and Belotero contain hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your skin that helps keep it plump and hydrated. Radiesse contains calcium hydroxylapatite that stimulates natural collagen production.

Where are fillers effective?

Dr. Rivera and Dr. Panchal use fillers to treat facial lines and wrinkles as well as to:

  • Restore volume to cheeks
  • Ease chin creases
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Plump the lips
  • Reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines
  • Smooth out marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses

Do fillers hurt or require downtime?

Fillers are administered via injection with a small needle. You may feel a slight pinch during the brief procedure, but in general the process is quite tolerable. We also offer injections by using cannulas, which minimize bruising and swelling. Ask about the application of lidocaine or other topical anesthetics if you’re concerned about discomfort.

You can resume most of your regular activities after receiving filler injections. You may experience a little swelling or redness in the injection areas and be asked to refrain from heavy physical activity for 24 hours after your treatment.

Which Neuromodulator is right for me?

Why Choose Botox

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved treatment to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. It’s a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within 5-7 days, with results lasting up to 4 months. BOTOX® delivers predictable and natural results!

Why Choose Xeomin?

XEOMIN® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Xeomin uses a highly purified dose of incobotulinumtoxinA to temporarily disable the muscles improving the appearance of contraction-related wrinkles. It is FDA-approved and fairly fast-acting, giving you the results you intend within a couple days and lasts up to 3 months!

Neuromodulator Q& A

Why choose a Neuromodulator?

Neuromodulators temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. It’s a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within several days after the treatment, with results lasting up to 4 months. Neuromodulators deliver predictable and natural results!

Where can Neuromodulators be used?

Neuromodulators are a quick treatment that works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the appearance of:

  • frown lines
  • crow’s feet
  • forehead lines

Where are Neuromodulators most effective?

Neuromodulators effectively treat facial wrinkles, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines on the forehead
  • Lines between the eyebrows

Neuromodulators can also reduce the pin cushion look of some chins, lift your brows, and reduce hyperhidrosis — excessive sweating under the armpits.

When should I expect to see results?

The positive effects of Neuromodulators usually start to appear within several days but can take as long as 14 days to be evident. If you’re getting a neuromodulator in advance of a big event, such as a wedding or reunion, plan the injections to happen a couple of weeks prior, so you get optimal results.

Who is a candidate for Neuromodulators?

Any man or woman who is bothered by the look of fine lines and wrinkles is a candidate. You don’t have to be a certain age or have a specific skin type. However, women who are pregnant and nursing or people with certain allergies or neurologic conditions should not seek Neuromodulator treatments.

How long do the effects of Neuromodulators last?

The results of Neuromodulators typically last three to six months. Regular treatments help maintain your results. You don’t have to worry about side effects from long-term use.

Do Neuromodulator injections hurt?

Neuromodulator procedures are quite tolerable and brief, but they do involve a needle, so you do feel slight pinpoint discomfort. Many people describe it as a pinching sensation. Dr. Rivera and Dr. Panchal use super-fine needles to administer the Neuromodulator. Discuss any concerns you have about pain with the staff and they can offer topical anesthetic or ice to reduce discomfort.

Do Neuromodulators have any side effects?

Side effects are rare, and any you experience usually go away in a day or two. These include slight bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection sites. You can wear makeup immediately after getting the injections, and you can resume your daily activities but should avoid heavy workouts for 24 hours after treatment.
