Our team of experienced medical providers have helped thousands of patients achieve increased confidence and a more refreshed, youthful appearance with our vast array of dermal fillers, neurotoxins, and other injectables. Injectables can be used to plump lips, add volume, contour, lift and define hollow or flat features, and soften facial lines and wrinkles. Injectables can also be used to reduce signs of aging in the hands, and other body areas.
As we age, superficial and deep muscles can actually pull our face and skin into expressions that make us look older. With less of the supporting tissue underneath to counteract the actions of these muscles, our skin can start to form wrinkles. An effective way to mitigate this is by using neuromodulators, such as Botox or Dysport, to weaken these muscles in a subtle way. We use neuromodulators to change the way your facial muscles move, resulting in a very soft, natural-looking improvement in your appearance.
Dermal fillers are mostly made of modified hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance already present in the body, and as we age, we can start to notice sagging cheeks, hollowed-out eyes, or thinning lips as skin loses its volume. Dermal fillers are a temporary way of restoring this volume without surgery. Another advantage is that their effects are reversible. An enzyme called hyaluronidase can be used to gently dissolve away the filler, although most patients are so happy with their new appearance that this a very rare request!
We offer a range of dermal fillers, all with different textures and characteristics. To help you best achieve your goals, we work with you to determine which ones to use and where to use them. For example, in areas like the cheeks, we use fillers that are slightly more viscous or thick. For the under-eye area, we often choose products that are less thick and will "settle in" better. Taking an individual approach and listening to your concerns, we will create a plan to address your concerns in a subtle, natural-looking way. There is an art to it and many factors are involved.

Sculptra Aesthetic addresses the cause of facial aging – lost collagen. Over time, our faces lose volume, and we can start to see the tell-tale signs of aging, such as nasolabial folds, or "smile lines" and other wrinkles. Sculptra works by stimulating poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) within the deep dermis. This encourages collagen production and helps restore your skin's structure and volume. The results are gradual and can last for up to two years.
For patients worried about submental fat (double chin), Kybella is an effective way to target fat specifically under the chin. Kybella uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occuring molecule in the body that helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected, it destroys fat cells, resulting in less fullness under the chin. Good candidates are patients at a stable weight who are bothered by the fullness under their chin, along with other factors.
*For the above treatments, individual results may vary. Optimal results seen when combined with a complete, comprehensive skin care program. Mutliple sessions may be part of a treatment plan.
