Enhancing Your Natural Beauty
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother. Only BOTOX® Cosmetic is backed by more than 16 years of published studies. It uses a unique manufacturing process, and its potency is measured in units that cannot be compared to any other product. This is why there is no such thing as “generic” BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® (OnabotulinumtoxinA) cosmetic is a neuro-muscular blocker, FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines look better.
Did you know the FDA has stated that BOTOX® Cosmetic is “non-interchangeable”? That means its safety and effectiveness cannot be claimed by another product. The potency – or strength – of BOTOX® Cosmetic is measured in scientifically defined units that cannot be compared to any other product, due to its unique manufacturing process. There are no substitutes for our product. People who are prescribed a biologic product have a right to know exactly what they are receiving; be sure to ask for BOTOX® Cosmetic by name.
Cosmetic fillers, such as JUVEDERM and VOLUMA can be used to lift cheeks, eliminate under eye bags and dark circles, erase smile lines, enhance the lips and get rid of vertical lip lines (smoker’s lines, lipstick lines). Fillers work on wrinkles seen at rest. “It’s important to understand that fillers can be used to strengthen the scaffolding that normally supports the skin. This scaffolding consists of collagen, fat, elastin, and hyaluronic acid,” says Dr. Patel. “With age and sun exposure, these 4 supporting ingredients are lost, and we have to replace them. Fillers are used to accomplish this and treat volume loss.” Most patients start losing volume in their mid 30 to 40s, and so almost every adult is a candid. Filler are often refered to as a liquid face lift if preformed by and expert.

Reduce Double Chin without surgery. Kybella is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for the treatment of fat outside of the submental area.
KYBELLA™ requires between two and six in-office treatments, depending on the heaviness of the chin and neck area.
