Deep furrows or frown lines can prompt an individual to look tired, sad, or angry when they really don’t feel this way. Over activity of the facial muscles contributes to the furrows, lines, and wrinkles, which can worsen over time. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a very popular injectable treatment that addresses these problems. New York surgeon Craig Foster (or one of his registered nurses) injects BOTOX® Cosmetic into specific areas of the face to relax and reduce the contractions of the facial muscles. After BOTOX® injections, the patient’s skin looks smoother, with less visible fine lines and wrinkles. Though not permanent, the results last for approximately four to six months, and may be repeated to maintain results.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that replenishes volume and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging. It also has the ability to stimulate the body to produce its own collagen, which extends the longevity of the results. Composed of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural, water-based gel, Radiesse® is typically used for the treatment of smile lines, marionette lines, the corners of the mouth, pre-jowl, and chin wrinkles.
Juvederm™ Injectable Gel
An injectable treatment that is made from hyaluronic acid, JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is available in several concentrations which can be used for different purposes. JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel can be used to plump the lips and to smooth facial lines and wrinkles for a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a prescription injection that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
XEOMIN® is a prescription medication used in facial aesthetics to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) in adults.
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.
Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only injectable gel that is FDA-approved to instantly correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area for people over 21. It adds volume, creating contour and lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
