BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily improve the look of crow’s feet lines, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines between the eyebrows. The procedure can be performed immediately following an initial consultation. During treatment, very small doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered to targeted facial muscles via a fine needle. The treatment only takes about 10 minutes, and no recovery time is required. You will see an improvement within a few days, and your results will last 3 to 4 months.

Dermal fillers (also called soft tissue fillers) are a non-surgical injectable treatment used to restore facial volume, create youthful facial contours, add volume to lips, and smooth out and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. Dermal fillers are the most common non-surgical procedure after BOTOX®, and are typically used as part of an ongoing skin maintenance routine.
There are currently many dermal filler products available on the market, the most popular of which are based on Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a substance that naturally exists in the human body, lubricating soft connective tissues, the skin, the eyes, and certain joints. The Hyaluronic Acid found in popular dermal fillers is a synthetic compound that acts similarly to the natural substance. It attracts water molecules and therefore acts like a cushion, propping up existing facial structures that have lost volume and elasticity as part of normal aging. By increasing the skin’s supply of Hyaluronic Acid, dermal fillers revitalize and add volume to the skin, smooth out wrinkles and lines, fill in hollowed out areas, and impart a softer, more youthful appearance.
Is the first and only non-surgical hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly smooth moderate to severe wrinkles around your nose and mouth for up to one year with optimal treatment.
