Botox® Cosmetic and Fillers

Botox® is a non-surgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 20-65 years of age. It is a physician administered treatment approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Botox® is a purified protein, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows. During a 10-minute treatment, a few tiny injections are given in the muscles that cause wrinkles and frowns. Within days there is a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines which can last up to 4 months.

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane® and Belotero® are used in select patient to add volume to the upper eyelids or to hide the lower eyelid bags instead of or sometimes in addition to eyelid surgery. We have found them particular helpful in patients who are not quite ready for eyelid surgery.
