BOTOX® Cosmetic is a protein that weakens muscles that wrinkle the skin. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes and forehead to reduce “worry lines”, “crow’s feet” and “frown lines”. BOTOX is administered by Dr. Youn, Christina Biotti, RN, BSN, Devon O’Connor-Kutz, PA, and Rachael, RN, BSN. They also use BOTOX for elevating the eyebrows and reducing the width of the jaw in selected patients. The procedure is quick and performed in the office with minimal pain and no downtime. Most patients say it’s much easier than going to the dentist! We can use topical anesthetics such as Topicaine to numb the skin.

Restylane® (including Silk, Lyft, Defyne and Refyne), Juvéderm®, Voluma™, Volbella, and Vollure
These are temporary “filler products” used to add fullness to areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks and forehead. They are fast, effective ways to smooth facial lines and define the lip border. In addition, they can be used to fill in deep and shallow wrinkles that cannot be treated by BOTOX®. The results are immediate but temporary. Dr. Youn, Devon PA, Christina RN, BSN, and Rachael RN, BSN perform these procedures in the comfort and privacy of the office. We use topical anesthetics as well as dental blocks (in selected patients) to numb the skin. Downtime and discomfort are very minimal.
Voluma® is the newest hyaluronic acid injectable and is FDA-approved for rejuvenating and filling in the cheeks. Dr. Youn was one of the first Voluma injectors in the state of Michigan. It’s a quick, nearly painless way to fill in and lift sunken, droopy cheeks. Studies show it lasts up to 2 years. There is no downtime and usually very minimal bruising and swelling. Dr. Youn often uses a specialized cannula to inject Voluma to make it as safe and pain-free as possible!

Sculptra Aesthetic is the newest FDA approved injectable to improve wrinkles and facial volume. This long-term facial plumper has been shown to last 2 years or longer, and usually consists of 3 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart. The results are gradual, but they add a softness and volume to the face which can create a nice, youthful rejuvenation. Dr. Youn, Devon, PA, and Rachael RN, BSN perform this procedure under topical anesthetics in the comfort of our office.
Kybella is an injectable treatment to reduce the fat of a double chin. It is composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the GI tract that dissolves fat. The treatment is quick, relatively painless, and requires no downtime in general. It does require 2 to 4 treatments for optimal effect. If you think Kybella might be for you, then feel free to call for a consultation with one of our staff members.
