Botox cosmetic or Onobotulinumtoxin A, is a neurotoxin that prevents muscle contraction by blocking nerve signals to the muscle. Botox has been used for decades for therapeutic use and was given FDA approval for cosmetic use since 2002. Neurotoxin injections have become increasingly popular due to high patient satisfaction with the results, as well as ease of treatment, and are currently the number one cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. These injections are used to treat wrinkles, mainly in the upper face, caused by facial movement referred to as dynamic wrinkles, by preventing targeted muscles from contracting. Botox treatments are a quick and easy way to diminish facial wrinkles, or prevent them from forming or deepening, and to give your face a smoother, younger appearance.

Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body and is abundant in the skin. It is the molecule primarily for attracting water which is what keeps skin appearing plump and hydrated. As the skin ages it produces less collagen and contains less hyaluronic acid which results in volume loss and facial wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane products are gel-like substances that are placed under the skin, immediately restoring volume to correct or augment depending on the patient’s goals.

Common areas injected with fillers include the lips, the nasolabial folds and the tear troughs. Fillers are also used for cheekbone, chin and jawline augmentation.

Anti-aging: As the face ages it loses fat under the eyes, in the cheek pads and in the temples of the forehead. This coupled with bone loss in the aging face results in loss of volume which can lead to wrinkles, hollows and loose skin. Fillers can be placed to replace this volume loss and to restore youthfulness. Common areas where fillers are placed include the nasolabial folds (laugh lines), the hollows in the temples of the forehead, and hollows in the cheeks. Fillers can also be used in the hands can also be used to replace fat loss to camouflage prominent veins.

Lip Injections: Lip fillers can be used to enhance aging lips to replace lost volume and restore the vermillion border restoring a youthful appearance. They can also be used to augment the lips to add volume and create a desired shape such as a pronounced cupid’s bow.The Russian technique can be used to increase the vertical show and change proportions of the lip often to enhance the upper lip.
