If the lines on your face are making you look-and feel- older than you really are, facial fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections may help you turn back the clock.
As you get older, the effectiveness of your skin’s natural collagen decreases, causing lines and creases around the eyes, lips and on the forehead. Facial fillers create volume, resulting in improvement in lines and wrinkles, and sometimes scars, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Sculptra®, and Fat Transfer are filler options available for re-contouring. The type of filler used determines the length of time the correction lasts. We will discuss which filler is most appropriate for you upon consultation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections may also be used to reduce some of the wrinkles caused by the aging process. These injections are particularly useful for crow’s feet and frown lines.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are for patients who desire firmer, more youthful-looking skin without the surgical commitment of a facelift.

What to Expect from BOTOX® Cosmetic
The cosmetic form of Botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOX® Cosmetic, is a popular non-surgical injection. A BOTOX® Cosmetic injection to the face temporarily reduces frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes, and thick bands in the neck*.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections work by blocking the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. As an outpatient procedure, patients can expect immediately visible results and minimal discomfort*.
