A prescription medicine (onabotulinumtoxinA) that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Like Botox and Dysport, Xeomin is a botulinum toxin type A, which is approved to treat wrinkles like the “11” lines between the brows and frown lines. Botox and Xeomin work by the exact same mechanism, which is blocking the signals from nerves to muscles, causing the muscles to relax and wrinkles to smooth out. The primary difference between the products is that Botox has an accompanying, inactive protein, while Xeomin does not have additives. Xeomin is a purified form of the neurotoxin; it’s manufactured in such a way that it removes accessory proteins from the active ingredient.
Dysport temporarily treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity.
Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions. One injection into each of the 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines.
In other words: natural-looking results that look and feel like you.
The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes. We will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

Juvederm is our injectable hyaluronic acid filler that can:
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, but as you age the body produces less, which causes volume loss and the creation of lines and wrinkles.
We inject Juvederm into skin folds and wrinkles to replace structure and volume and to provide a more youthful appearance.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin by an experienced aesthetics professional at Dime Medical Artistry, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
