Cosmetic Injectable Treatments Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is the world’s leading nonsurgical cosmetic treatment, and for good reason. Botox is an excellent option for temporarily reducing the appearance of forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. In the hands of a skilled professional like Dr. Levin, Botox helps you appear more youthful and well-rested. 

Botox is formulated from Clostridium botulinum, a substance found naturally in soil, lakes, and forests. While toxic in certain strengths, the volume used in cosmetic and medical applications is perfectly safe. 

This injectable option temporarily impedes the ability of targeted facial muscles to go through their full range of motion. That means those muscles can no longer pull and tug your skin into folds and wrinkles. Dr. Levin also offers Xeomin and Dysport, which have similar effects. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that replace or enhance facial volume. There are a number of different options, many of which are made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin. 

There are fillers formulated for specific areas of the face. Some common treatment areas include:

  • Cheeks and mid-face
  • Nasolabial folds, or the folds that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Marionette lines, or the folds that run from the corners of your mouth to your chin
  • Beneath your eyes
  • Lips
  • Wrinkles above and around the lips

Some dermal fillers even help add volume to the backs of your hands, plumping and smoothing that skin. 

What is a liquid face-lift?

A liquid face-lift is a combination of cosmetic injectables that refines your facial contouring. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach, and no two liquid face-lifts are the same. Dr. Levin assesses your face to determine which options are right for you. 

Some of the available options include:

  • Botox
  • Dysport
  • Xeomin
  • Juvederm Ultra
  • Juvederm Voluma XC
  • Radiesse
  • Restylane
  • Perlane
  • Sculptra
  • Belotero Balance

The goal of a liquid face-lift is to help you reach your greatest aesthetic potential.
