Neuromodulators use the Botulinum toxin to safely and locally paralyze facial muscles where injected. By inhibiting the desired muscles from contracting, we are able to prevent deep wrinkles from forming. The procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin.  Common areas to be injected include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” around the eyes.  BOTOX® Cosmetic, XEOMIN® and Dysport® have proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and they are capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance. Individual results and experience may vary.

Reasons to consider BOTOX® Cosmetic, XEOMIN® and Dysport®:

- Excessive facial wrinkles.

- Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead.

- Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes.

- A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows.


JUVÉDERM XC is a clear gel infused with a local anesthetic. It is injected beneath the skin to augment the soft tissue beneath. Because JUVÉDERM XC is made from biodegradable, hypoallergenic hyaluronic acid, there’s very little risk of an allergic reaction. However, those with a history of allergies to lidocaine should avoid JUVÉDERM XC.  Best of all, the entire process takes just 15 to 20 minutes and is approved for all skin types and colors.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable gel for lip augmentation in adults over 21.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC​ is an injectable gel that instantly adds volume to the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over 21

RADIESSE® is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE® is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE® continue by naturally stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting. Individual results and experience may vary.​

BELOTERO BALANCE® is a prescription injection that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth). 

Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to instantly, visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds or add fullness to your lips.

Restylane® Lyft ​is approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation  and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. This is in addition to treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).
