Botox® is a non-surgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, reduced smile lines, and improve lines across the forehead in adults.  It is administered by Dr. Levin and is approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

During a 10-minute treatment, tiny injections are given in the muscles that cause wrinkles and frowns or into the muscles the affect the eyebrows. Improvement is noted within days and can last up to 4 months.

In the new Microdroplet technique small amounts of Botox are placed into the eyebrows giving a subtle but nice lift in many patients.

Juvederm

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as those from the Restylane® and Juvederm® families of products are used in select patients to add volume to the upper eyelids or to hide the lower eyelid. We have found them particularly helpful in patients who decide that surgery is not the right choice for them, but still want to make subtle adjustments using non-surgical injectables. Fillers are not FDA approved around the eyes. Other fillers are helpful to give volume to the temples, cheeks, and the rest of the face. The risks and indications of these will be discussed at your consultation.

Restylane Before and After

54 year old woman with prominent eyes, lower fat prolapse, and a deep groove beneath the lower eyelids had Restylane® filler injected to fill the “tear trough area” of the lower eyelids. No surgery was performed.

Comment: in selected patients, fillers such as Restylane® may be used instead of or together with eyelid surgery. Removal of fat is NOT always the only or best solution to lower eyelid problems.
