Injectable Services

BOTOX® Cosmetic

The most popular, FDA-approved injectable, BOTOX® Cosmetic softens the look of wrinkles and facial lines. Most commonly used on forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines and the horizontal lines between the eyebrows. Results last for three to six months.


An advanced technique that involves the injection of multiple microdroplets of neurotoxin into the dermis (not the muscle) which works to decrease sebaceous and sweat gland activity, improve the skin texture, diminished fine lines and wrinkles, and give an overall “shrink wrap” effect the area treated. It is ideal for the face, neck, and décolleté.


Over 1 million men have used BOTOX® for subtle, natural-looking aging! We offer this injectable for men and commonly treat the forehead, crow’s feet, frown lines and sunken eyebrow areas. BOTOX® can also be used for hyperhidrosis to manage excessive sweating.


Used for wrinkle prevention, Dysport® creates a natural look of smoother lines on the face, diminishing wrinkles. Results last for three to six months.


Used to treat moderate to severe fat below the chin, KYBELLA® breaks down the absorption of dietary fat. The destruction of fat cells through the injection across two or three treatments performed six weeks apart eliminates the “double chin”. KYBELLA® can also be used for body sculpting.


The Restylane® collection of FDA-approved dermal fillers restores symmetry to the lips and giving natural fullness while promoting collagen production and skin elasticity. We offer Restylane® Silk, Refyne®, Defyne® and Lyft®.


The JUVÉDERM® collection of FDA-approved fillers targets cheeks, lips, lines and wrinkles. We offer JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, VOLBELLA® XC, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC.

EZ Gel Bio-Filler

Plasma Bio-Filler is an exciting, cutting edge aesthetic treatment. Using a patient’s own blood product a dermal filler gel is created. It is autologous and easy to obtain. It works well for fine wrinkle reduction as well as to volumize, contour, and rejuvenate the face, neck, and hands. The consistency and autologous nature of plasma bio-filler are very easily accepted by patients, more so than the high-density hyaluronic acid fillers. Typically 2-3 treatments are needed and once optimum results are achieved it can last well over a year!
