Botox® Cosmetic Injections & Facial Fillers
Botox and facial fillers are the perfect facial rejuvenation treatment for patients who would like to take advantage of plastic surgery benefits without the pain, healing and downtime. Dr. Hunter Moyer is a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in Botox injections, facial fillers and other non-surgical treatments. We are proud to give patients the opportunity to improve moderate signs of aging using effective, yet non-invasive, procedures.
Botox and other injections can be used for liquid or injectable face lift procedures, brow lifts and to improve fine lines around the eyes and mouth. These non-surgical procedures are quick and easy, revealing immediate results that require little to no downtime. Dr. Moyer realizes that no two patients are alike. We offer Botox cosmetic injections and a wide variety of facial fillers to successfully address your individual concerns.
Botox® Cosmetic Injections
Botox® Cosmetic is composed of a highly purified form of botulinum toxin that relaxes wrinkle-causing facial muscles between the eyes and along the forehead. By smoothing these muscles, each treatment reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles for an average of four to six months. Botox® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved injectable for patients aged 18-65.
To restore lost volume in the face and jaw, Dr. Moyer offers Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Sculptra® facial filling options. Unlike cosmetic injectables that relax the muscles to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, facial fillers are designed to replenish the volume of areas that contain deeper lines and wrinkles. These fillers almost instantly yield results that can last an average of six to nine months.
This dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally produced in youthful skin. Juvéderm® consists of a series of short injections to areas around the nose, lips, and nasolabial folds to reduce the appearance of smile lines and marionette lines. Most patients can see visible wrinkle reduction for six months to a year following treatment.
Dr. Moyer offers Restylane® injections to help patients minimize the appearance of wrinkles in more delicate areas, such as around the eyes. Like Juvéderm®, Restylane® is composed of hyaluronic acid to help replenish areas of lost volume. Most patients notice wrinkle reduction results lasting up to six months.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is composed of polylactic acid to rejuvenate areas in the cheeks and around the nose and mouth. With a few quick injections, Sculptra® stimulates the body’s collagen production capabilities to prevent the formation of further wrinkles. Most Sculptra® patients require an initial series of injections that build up polylactic acid to jumpstart the collagen production process. Sculptra® is FDA-approved, and most patients have noticed fewer wrinkles for up to two years after their initial set of treatments.
