BOTOX® has been used in the medical field for many years to relax muscles associated with different conditions, such as spasms, stiffness, and migraines, among many others. Approved for cosmetic use by the Federal Drug Administration in 2002, BOTOX® is now a mainstay in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Gol uses BOTOX® to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and along the forehead. The substance is injected directly into the muscles that cause wrinkles, temporarily relaxing them. The entire process takes less than one hour in our office. Once completed, patients can enjoy the effects of their treatment for up to four months.
While BOTOX® relaxes facial muscles, injectable dermal fillers increase tissue volume. There are several different types of dermal fillers. The treatment chosen for you will depend on your unique aesthetic goals.
Made from hyaluronic acid (which occurs naturally in the body), Juvéderm® attracts and binds water, acting as a natural moisturizer that lubricates and supports the skin. This product is routinely used to smooth lines and wrinkles or add volume to the lips for a plumper appearance. Because Juvéderm® is derived from non-animal, biosynthesized hyaluronic acid, patients do not run the risk of an allergic reaction.

Derived from calcium hydroxylapatite, Radiesse® uses microspheres to fill lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose, including marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and smile lines. Like Juvéderm®, Radiesse® is obtained from a substance that is found in the body. Therefore, there is no need for pre-treatment allergy testing. Radiesse® results may last up to two years, although touch-up treatments may be required in the meantime.
Like Juvéderm®, Belotero® is made with hyaluronic acid. However, this product has a thick, gel-like consistency, which makes it ideal for reducing the appearance of lines around the mouth. Results are noticeable immediately and typically last about six months.
