Botox® and Dermal Fillers
The Plastic Surgery Center performs Botox® and dermal-filler injections to aid in wrinkle correction, remove fine lines or add volume in areas needed. Our team of plastic surgeons and nurse specialists are fully trained in the latest techniques to help you look your best.
Botox® Cosmetic is the most well-known, FDA-approved aesthetic injectable treatment for reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botox® Cosmetic is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines. Botox® can be used to improve and diminish:
- Fine lines and wrinkles between the brows (frown lines)
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Fine lines around the mouth
- Eyebrow shaping and enhancement
- Brow lifting
No anesthesia is needed, although the physician may choose to numb the areas with a cold pack or anesthetic cream before injecting. The procedure takes about 10 minutes and requires no recovery time. You may resume normal activities immediately. The procedure causes little discomfort. You can expect to see results within a few days after treatment.
Juvederm® is an FDA-approved smooth gel made up of hyaluronic acid — a naturally occurring substance found in your body. By carefully injecting Juvederm® underneath the skin, your appearance can be completely rejuvenated, adding volume and reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® can be used to:
- Diminish smile lines
- Diminish marionette lines from the mouth to the chin
- Decrease vertical lines around the mouth.
- Enhance and restore volume to:
- Cheeks / mid-face
- Lips, enhancing them and diminishing lines around the mouth
Juvederm Voluma™ XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area in people over the age of 21. Juvederm Voluma™ XC gives a subtle lift, helps restore contour for up to two years, and help you look up to five years younger. This filler contains a modified hyaluronic acid that is derived from a naturally occurring complex sugar. It looks and feels natural.
Belotero Balance® dermal filler softens fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you. Belotero is soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines.
All injections are performed as an office-based procedure, with minimal to no downtime. Results are immediate and can last from four months up to two years depending on the product and injection location.
