Botox® Cosmetic works by temporarily blocking nerve signals and muscle contractions. This improves the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows. It can also slow the formation of new lines by preventing contraction of facial muscles. Common injectable areas include: the area between the eyebrows, around the eyes (commonly known as crow’s feet), and the forehead.


Kybella® is a non-surgical procedure that mimics the body’s natural fat-absorption process to help improve the appearance of certain areas, typically the area under the chin and neck. The injection contains a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb fat.


Dermal fillers can help smooth out lines around the nose and mouth, enhance and restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples, diminish facial lines, plump and enhance the lips, and improve facial symmetry.
