BOTOX, FILLERS, KYBELLA
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
Botox® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet – the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Botox® Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
A tiny needle is used to inject Botox® into the appropriate facial muscles to reduce wrinkles while maintaining your natural appearance. You should not lose the ability to show expression or look “frozen” when treated by a licensed professional.
You may begin to notice effects within 72 hours with results lasting up to 3-4 months.
Treatment generally takes about 10-15 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
Botox Before and After
As we age, we can begin to lose the youthful facial contours and volume that we once had. With Juvederm, you do not have to sit back and just let this happen!
Juvederm is an injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that delivers nutrients to the skin, helping the skin retain moisture and softness and adding volume.
At our office, we utilize a variety of Juvederm dermal fillers to address your specific facial concerns.
Juvederm products can be used to lift and contour the cheeks, smooth and soften wrinkles around the nose and mouth, as well as add volume to the lips.
Depending on the particular products utilized, results may last up to one to two years.
These fillers can provide natural looking results that help you look younger and more freshened in a way that will not be obvious to others.
The procedure generally takes 30 minutes to 1 hour. No downtime is required after the procedure, however many patients will experience mild swelling and bruising that can last for a few days.

Submental fullness, or extra fat beneath the chin, is a common problem encountered by both men and women.
A variety of factors can contribute to this problem, including genetics, aging, and weight gain. However, in some cases, diet and exercise are not effective in reducing the excess fat in this area.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable to permanently reduce fullness and excess fat underneath the chin.
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring product in the body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat.
Once these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once the desired result is achieved.
What to Expect
Kybella is a minimally invasive, in office procedure that generally takes about 30 minutes.
Multiple tiny injections will be used to deposit Kybella into the fat cells underneath the chin. Kybella will begin dissolving fat cells immediately and the dissolved fat is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.
Kybella is an individually tailored treatment so the number of injections and treatments will vary from patient to patient. Generally, patients will require between 2-6 treatments (depending on the amount of fat and improvement desired), administered at least 8 weeks apart.
