and polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres correct wrinkles. Every face is unique, and different types of filler make it possible to tailor a rejuvenation program to your needs. Here at Beautique Medical Spa, we’re experts at using fillers delicately and precisely to help you achieve your ideal look. We offer four different services: Juvederm, Volbella, Voluma, and Kybella. All of them rely on hyaluronic acid except for Kybella, which uses synthetic deoxycholic acid as its active ingredient. However, each of the hyaluronic acid fillers have different molecular structures and/or particle sizes that give them unique properties. Juvederm is ideal for smoothing away wrinkles; Volbella adds volume to your lips; Voluma lifts your cheeks to give your face a youthful fullness; and Kybella can help you say goodbye to a double chin.
