Nonsurgical Cosmetic Enahancements
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to fill in lines, wrinkles and scars. Unlike facelifts that stretch the skin, fillers add volume for a more natural and youthful appearance.

Restylane® Silk is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA. Restylane® Silk is designed for meticulously precise lip definition and line control for the silkier, smoother lips you’ve been looking for. It also provides natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
Radiesse® dermal filler is setting a new standard for cosmetic fillers. It uses advanced, calcium-based microsphere technology to deliver soft, natural-looking results you can see immediately. Kim Cupp ARNP performs advanced techniques to include jawline enhancement, cheek augmentation and hand restoration with Radiesse dermal filler. Unlike other dermal fillers, it also stimulates your body to produce new collagen, so you’ll continue to look more youthful and attractive over time. In fact for many patients, the benefits of treatment with Radiesse® dermal filler may last up a year or more.
Belotero® – it becomes you… As we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumizers and moisturizers such as Hyaluronic Acid (HA) diminish, leaving lines and wrinkles where our skin was once youthful, even and radiant. Belotero is an HA dermal filler, made of the same volumizing and moisturizing component of your skin, so it is the natural choice for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Kybella® is an injectable acid that destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin (commonly known as the “double chin”). The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
What are neuromuscular blockers?
Neuromuscular blockers, Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® are acetylcholine release inhibitors and neuromuscular blocking agents indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe lines.
What is the difference between Xeomin®, Botox®, and Dysport®?
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin have a lot in common, but they also have some important differences. Unlike its predecessors, Xeomin does not need to be refrigerated. This may be an advantage when it comes to distribution. What’s more, Xeomin is “naked.” There are no additives — just botulinum toxin type A. This may lessen a patient’s likelihood of developing antibodies to Xeomin. When your body senses a foreign invader, it responds by creating antibodies and launching an attack. If this were to occur with a neurotoxin such as botulinum toxin type A, it may not have its desired effects.
Xeomin is said to be more like Botox than Dysport. It takes about one week for the full effects of Xeomin injections to be realized, and once this occurs the results last from three to six months.
