Youthful skin gets its volume, support and suppleness from an abundance of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. As we age, these natural support structures become less plentiful.
The result is facial lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity – all of which rob the skin of its youthful, fresh appearance. EsthetixMD cosmetic nurses are experts at treating such imperfections with injectables. If you’re unhappy with what you see in the mirror, we have a treatment to address your issue.
We offer a full menu of the latest cosmetic injectables in the main categories of neuromodulators (such as BOTOX Cosmetic) and dermal fillers (such as Voluma and Juvéderm). Dermal fillers are smooth-consistency gels made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.
Used in combination, these two types of injectables get instant results in restoring skin volume, smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds, and creating a lifted appearance – without surgery.
EsthetixMD medical spa is a BOTOX® Platinum provider, reflecting our experience with this simple, cost-effective, procedure that delivers dramatic wrinkle reduction. Worry lines, frown lines, laugh or smile lines, crow’s feet; these are all “dynamic” wrinkles caused from years of living and using facial muscles to show expression. Botox injections safely, effectively soften lines and reduce wrinkles. While it’s not magic, Botox can restore some youthfulness to your appearance.
BOTOX® is a purified protein with a 15-year history in the therapeutic treatment of a variety of medical conditions. Since 2002 it has been FDA-approved for cosmetic treatments. BOTOX® works in a different manner than dermal fillers. It inhibits the transmission of chemicals that cause muscle contraction. For example, it is used for chemical brow lifts by preventing the action of the muscles that push the brows down. Brows that are uneven can be balanced, as the muscles that lift the brow engage while others relax. BOTOX® is a successful treatment for
- Worry lines
- Frown lines
- Unbalanced brows
- Lines or wrinkles under the eyes
- Crows’ feet
- Eyelid twitching
- Low or heavy eyebrows (brow lift)
- “Bunny” lines on the nose
- Downturned mouth corners
- Vertical lip lines (in conjunction with fillers)
Treatment is quick, taking 30 minutes or less, and improvement is rapid, within days of your injection. Progressive improvement may be seen as the skin relaxes and becomes smoother. There is no downtime from this quick, simple treatment; you’ll resume normal activity immediately. Results last several months.
Your clinician may recommend BOTOX® injections as an adjunct to dermal filler treatment in order to reduce the contraction of certain muscles. The intent of prior injections is to prevent “creasing” of the dermal filler solution. The synergistic effect between BOTOX® and filler products often prolongs the results of treatment.
Dysport™ is a next-generation injectable that improves on BOTOX for some patients. Now FDA-approved to treat forehead frown lines, Dysport™ is currently licensed for use in over 60 countries. It was developed in the United Kingdom in the 1990s to treat a number of neurological, ophthalmic, and neuromuscular disorders. Since then, its use has been expanded for cosmetic purposes such as wrinkle treatment, and EsthetixMD med spa is pleased to offer this alternative to BOTOX.
A chemical cousin to BOTOX, Dysport™ is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A that has been found to be faster acting than BOTOX in clinical studies. It is a chemical muscle relaxant that works almost identically to BOTOX to successfully treat frown lines, worry lines, crow’s feet and more.
FDA-approved for aesthetic uses since 2009, Dysport™ was tested in over 2,900 patients in over 80 study sites across the country. It was approved as a safe and effective product for reducing unwanted muscle activity in the glabellar area.
Both successfully treat wrinkles. Dysport™ is especially effective in countering the effects of frowning, scowling, and forehead wrinkling. It is most commonly used between the eyebrows, in the forehead, and next to the eyes, where crow’s feet form. Dysport™ affects only dynamically-caused wrinkles, not those caused by aging or collagen depletion, which we treat with fillers or lasers.
Injections are performed in a few minutes with no anesthetic needed. You can return to work and normal activity with no downtime. Results are quick, often visible within two or three days.
XEOMIN is the newest “frown fixer,” now available at EsthetixMD med spa. When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. As your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines, also known as dynamic lines. XEOMIN is a cosmetic injectable that can help.
Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat glabellar lines – the “11” between your eyebrows. 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.
While the three are similar, XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) does not carry the proteins present in the other products. This lessens the possibility your body will react to treatment by forming antibodies that can render the product ineffective. (This is typically seen only in patients who have used botulinum toxin for an extended period.)
To introduce this new product to the marketplace, the manufacturer priced XEOMIN lower than competing injectables. Clients also like the quicker effect they see with XEOMIN. Our clinicians can use more than one of the compounds in a single session to meet your goals. Our on-staff RN or doctor can advise you on the best approach based on your preference and injection locations.
XEOMIN takes effect within two to three days after injection, with results lasting up to four months.
The loss of mid-face volume is one of the hallmarks of facial aging. When it’s severe, it causes significant changes in facial appearance. EsthetixMD med spa offers JUVEDERM ™, the newest-generation derma-fillers on the market, to recapture a natural, youthful look.
Juvéderm is a safe, effective solution for correcting wrinkles and folds in the nasolabial area (the deep “parentheses” grooves extending from the corners of the nose down along the mouth). It comes as a gel, an advance over conventional particle fillers. In clinical trials, injections of this product were more comfortable for patients than other fillers.
We carry the full Juvéderm product line:
- Juvederm Ultra gel
- Juvederm Ultra Plus gel
- Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma XC
One of the most noticeable changes as your face matures is the loss of cheekbone definition. In the past, this was typically addressed with surgery, to tighten the overlying skin and lift the deeper soft tissues. Now, volumizing fillers are available to get a similar “lift” without surgery.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is a new HA (hyaluronic acid) soft tissue filler. It’s the first formulated with lidocaine that is FDA-approved to restore age-related volume changes in the cheeks.
It’s performance has been proven in Europe, where it’s been available since 2005, and in 72 countries worldwide.
A hyaluronic acid-based (HA) filler, it’s made from long chains of sugars that occur naturally in the skin. It’s a significant advance in dermal filler technology for restoring lost volume and contour in the mid-face. Benefits:
- Formulated with HA cross-linking through a process called Vycross, providing excellent lifting capacity and slower degradation
- Longer-lasting, almost twice as long as other fillers, with studies showing it can last up to two years
- Includes lidocaine, an anesthetic, for added comfort during treatment
- Can be molded and shaped into the desired contours after injection
- Non-animal based formula
- Provides optimum results with only one treatment
EsthetixMD carries this Swedish product as an excellent treatment to restore the fullness, contour, and smoothness of your facial appearance. A safe, gentle derma-filler made from the body’s own material (hyaluronic acid), Restylane provides an instant, natural beauty lift without surgery.
Along with collagen, hyaluronic acid plays an important role in keeping skin looking good. HA helps to bind water, keeping skin full and preventing dryness and wrinkling. As we age, we lose collagen and hyaluronic acid. Our skin holds less moisture so skin folds, lines, and wrinkles form readily. Add in lifestyle factors like smoking, alcohol consumption, sun-bathing, and nutritional habits, and the result is tired, lax skin with a weakened support structure. Restylane reinforces your skin’s HA, for more volume in problem wrinkle areas.
Restylane is used in over 60 countries as an effective solution, especially for filling nasolabial folds, adding fullness to lips and correcting lip wrinkles.
There is no pre-testing to delay treatment. You’ll see immediate results with Restylane – and your new look will be long-lasting.
Radiesse’s popularity – it’s been used worldwide in over 150,000 procedures – is well-founded as a painless aesthetic filler that provides instant results. This FDA-approved alternative is a safe, effective correction for “smile lines” (nasolabial folds). EsthetixMD clinicians also recommend it for augmenting other areas of the face and correcting facial depressions and defects. Radiesse treatments stimulate your body’s collagen growth, boosting its long-lasting results.
Radiesse is actually the only filler to gain FDA approval for the correction of volume loss in the hands. This product rejuvenates the appearance of the hands for up to one year. Results are immediate!
KYBELLA™ is the first and only approved injectable drug for contouring moderate to severe submental fullness, a condition that is commonly referred to as a double chin. KYBELLA™ is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Restylane® Lyft has been FDA-approved for the treatment of volume loss as well as deeper creases and folds, such as mariontette lines. Mid-face volume can become a problem as tissues that support healthy contours become weakened over time. The hyaluronic acid gel is formulated to have a thicker consistency, making it perfectly suited to mid-facial volume restoration across the cheeks.
The minimally invasive treatment involves a few injections into the precise area where volume needs to be restored. The hyaluronic acid gel immediately plumps tissues, and continues to attract water molecules into the area to create naturally beautiful results.
Restylane® Lyft contains Lidocaine, so the overall treatment should be well tolerated.
Every person metabolizes injectible solutions differently. Studies show that more than 90% of patients report satisfaction at 6 months. However, it is possible to enjoy better contours for up to 18 months.
Restylane® Lyft is the new name for the proven hyaluronic acid filler Perlane. If you are looking for Before and Afters, you may search both products to see what is possible.
Restylane® Silk is a hyaluronic acid filler that has been FDA-approved for use around the lips and mouth. The consistency of this filler is silky smooth, perfect for the delicate skin in the intended treatment area. As we age, the lips and surrounding skin may become loose and thin. The lips can lose their youthful shape. Restylane® Silk is an excellent solution, formulated for subtle enhancement and correction of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
Injecting small amounts of hyaluronic acid into lines immediately plumps skin to a level surface. With slightly more product, we can fill out the lips with natural HA, restoring beautiful shape.
Like other filler products, Restylane® Silk will be metabolized differently by each person. However, clinical studies show that 76% of patients report satisfying results six-months post treatment.
The side effects of Restylane® Silk are similar to other fillers. Most patients experience nothing more than slight, temporary swelling.
Restylane® Silk has 0.3% Lidocaine and a thin consistency that combine to create the most comfortable procedure possible.
