Aesthetic Injectables


Botox® and Dysport® are neurotoxins (forms of botulinum toxin type A produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum) that temporarily block muscle contraction. They are FDA approved for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles and are indicated for temporary improvement of frown lines, forehead lines and “crows feet” (lateral eye lines). Effects last an average of 3-4 months.

Underarm BOTOX®

Indicated for treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the underarms) in patients unable to obtain relief using antiperspirants. Botox temporarily blocks the secretion of the chemical that “turns on” sweat glands. Studies show that the effects can last an average of 6-7 months.

Facial Fillers

Many fillers are made of Hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found in your skin that helps keep it plump and hydrated. HA is processed with a smooth gel infused with lidocaine to minimize discomfort during injections. HA fillers are formulated to treat different areas of the face to deliver instant, natural-looking results.

Indications for fillers include treatment of:

  • Flat, sagging cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • Folds and wrinkles around the mouth, lower face and jawline
  • Loss of lip volume
  • Loss of jawline structure


Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable filler that can smooth deep wrinkles like marionette lines and reverse volume loss like sunken cheeks and chin wrinkles. It’s not recommended for use as a lip or under-eye filler.

Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic material that adds volume and stimulates new collagen production within and underneath your skin and fat pads, to improve your results over time. The best results appear four to six months post-treatment. Because results improve so gradually, it won’t be obvious to anyone else that you’ve had something done. Sculptra requires patience. You’ll likely need multiple treatments over a few months to achieve your desired result.


Kybella is an FDA approved injectable that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness (double chin). Submental fullness can distract from the face leading to an older, heavier look. This area of the face is often resistant to diet and exercise alone and can even be caused by genetic factors. Injectable deoxycholic acid works by breaking up and destroying fat cells. Often, several treatments may be required however, once the aesthetic response is achieved, re-treatment is not expected. The result is a more youthful, defined jawline.
