What are the different uses for the various facial filler products?
We carry a variety of soft tissue fillers (Juvaderm™, Voluma™, and Belotero™) that are used to resurface wrinkles, improve soft tissue deficiencies, plump lips, and correct many of the signs of facial aging. Frequent areas for treatment are the nasolabial folds, temples, cheeks, lips, and tear troughs of the lower eyelid. Results with fillers are immediate, last from 6 months to 1 year, and have minimal to no downtime.
How many units of botox do I need for each area?
Botox™ Cosmetic is a wonderful product for the prevention and treatment of facial wrinkles.

A standard treatment dose is approximately 20 units for the glabella (11s between the eyebrows) and 12 units for the lateral eyes/crows feet.
What is the difference between Botox, Dysport and Jeaveau
Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeaveau are all neurotoxins that temporarily paralyze a targeted muscle. The difference in each product is due to the structure of the product, storage, and manufacturing process. They also differ in administration technique and dosage to achieve the best result. Over time with different injections, patients can determine which product works best for them.
How long does Botox last?
Botox results last for approximately 3 months, but improve with continued treatments.
Can I combine botox with fillers?
Yes, botox and fillers can be combined at the same clinic visit. Botox is used to minimize facial movements and active wrinkles while filler is used to improve soft tissue fullness.
