Dermal fillers are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume, and revitalize the skin. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that naturally exists in your body. Injectable dermal fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars.

The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin temporarily reduces and helps eliminate facial fine lines and wrinkles. Typical treated areas are frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet near the eyes. Several other areas have been treated such as thick bands in the neck, thick jaw muscles, lip lines, and gummy smiles.
Botulinum toxin is a purified substance derived from bacteria. Injections of botulinum toxin block the nerve signals to the injected muscle. Without a signal, the muscle is not able to contract allowing unwanted facial wrinkles to diminish.
Commonly known types of botulinum toxin type A injections include Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin® and Jeuveau®.
