Injectables Guide

Yes, you can face the world with new confidence. You may experience changes in your facial appearance as you age, since volume loss, fine lines, wrinkles, and a hollow-eyed appearance can make you look angry or exhausted to others. Luckily, there are many injectable filler options available to rejuvenate your appearance and reduce these signs of aging. You can click on each injectable listed below to view the treatment areas, or you can click the area of the face to view which injectables can address signs of aging in that specific location. This guide can be used to help you understand the various types of injectables, but a consultation is the best way to determine which injectable is right for you.

“I want you to know that you guys are the best. Your professionalism and compassion made may surgery a lot easier. Dr. T, your hands are magic gifts and I’m so thankful.”



Bellafill® – Treats the midface, temples, and smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).

This non-resorbable polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bovine collagen filler is FDA approved for filling facial lines, and results can last up to five years.


BELOTERO BALANCE® – Treats tear troughs and lip lines.

This injectable dermal filler is created from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Results can last up to six months following treatment.

BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, XEOMIN®, or Jeuveau™

BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, XEOMIN®, or Jeuveau™ – Treats frown lines (glabellar lines), forehead lines, and crow’s feet.

These neuromuscular-blocking injectables result in tighter, smoother skin on the forehead as well as around the eyebrows and eyes. Results may vary for each patient but generally last three to four months after treatment.


DAXXIFY® treats frown lines, forehead creases, and other wrinkles caused by dynamic daily facial expressions.

DAXXIFY® is the newest neuromuscular-blocking injectable to address lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes. The primary difference between DAXXIFY® and similar injectables is that the formulation includes a peptide, a protein that helps the neuromodulator bind more securely to the facial nerve. This allows DAXXIFY® to work quickly, with results seen in as few as two days.


KYBELLA® – Treats the area beneath the chin (submental fullness, or a “double chin”).

This FDA-approved injectable is created to treat submental fullness by destroying fat cells using deoxycholic acid (a molecule in the body that breaks down fat and absorbs it naturally). Fat cells are demolished and unable to grow or restore after this treatment.


JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® XC – Treats the lips, lip lines, and smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).

Both of these options are derived from hyaluronic acid and address concerns around the mouth. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC can add fullness to the lips. JUVÉDERM® XC treats nasolabial folds and lip lines.


JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC – Treats the lips and fine lines.

This injectable formulation of hyaluronic acid and a small dose of local anesthetic (lidocaine) corrects fine lines and adds fullness to the lips while simultaneously providing a numbing agent for minimizing discomfort during your injections.


JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC – Treats smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).

This injectable adds volume to the nasolabial folds to provide subtle results for up to 18 months.


JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC – Treats volume loss in the cheeks.

This injectable adds volume and fullness to cheeks, lifting the facial contours for a refreshed appearance. Your results can last up to two years after this treatment.


RADIESSE® – Treats smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), fills in lines near the temples, reduces jowls, and improves volume loss on the back of your hands.

The ingredients in this injectable are not easily broken down by your body, so results can commonly last up to a year.

Restylane® and Restylane-L®

Restylane® and Restylane-L® – Treats the lips and smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).

These hyaluronic acid-based gel formulas act like your body’s natural hyaluronic acid and add volume and fullness to the skin.

Restylane® Lyft With Lidocaine

Restylane® Lyft With Lidocaine – Treats the hands, cheeks, and smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).

This injectable filler is made of hyaluronic acid, lidocaine, and water to treat volume loss and wrinkles in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and hands.

Restylane® Defyne and Restylane® Refyne

Restylane® Defyne and Restylane® Refyne – Treats smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).

The FDA-approved ingredients of these injectables smooth out wrinkles while allowing more natural, relaxed facial expression and movement. Restylane® Defyne is firmer, making it ideal for moderate to severe deep dermis wrinkles, while Restylane® Refyne is more flexible and treats moderate skin folds.

Restylane® Silk

Restylane® Silk – Treats the lips and lip lines.

This filler is approved by the FDA to augment the lips by enhancing and smoothing wrinkles around the mouth.

RHA® Collection

The RHA® Collection treats mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles (tear troughs, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and perioral lines) and facial volume loss.

The RHA® Collection is a series of hyaluronic acid-based fillers used to address dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that result from daily facial expressions, rather than other factors like collagen depletion or general aging. The RHA® Collection of fillers uses a less processed version of hyaluronic acid that takes longer to metabolize than other fillers, meaning they last longer. It also makes the filler more easily adaptable to the movement of your face, giving you a softer, more natural look.

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Sculptra® Aesthetic –  Treats the midface, temples, nasolabial folds, and jowls.

This FDA-approved injectable promotes the gradual replacement of collagen to fight facial aging. Most patients see results for up to two years.
