Dermal Fillers: Immediately reduce wrinkles, restore volume, and plump lips
Dermal fillers are used during a minimally invasive injectable procedure and are designed to remove wrinkles, soften deep facial creases, return lost volume, and plump thin lips. We carry a wide variety of dermal fillers so that we can address all of these concerns.
Dermal Fillers: Frequently Asked Questions
What are fillers? Dermal ﬁllers are injectable gels containing either poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra), modiﬁed hyaluronic acid (Juvederm and Restylane), or Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres (Radiesse). Using a ﬁne needle, your aesthetic specialist injects the smooth gels under the skin.
When will I see results? You will see results instantly.
What is the treatment experience like? Our cosmetic coordinator, Ivani, will take your medical history and provide a facial analysis. Be prepared to discuss your aesthetic areas of concern. An appointment will then be scheduled with Dr. Judge. Once you arrive, you will be taken to a treatment room where a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment areas. The topical anesthetic generally requires 15-30 minutes to become effective. Dr. Judge will then inject the appropriate dermal filler into the areas requiring correction. Temporary bruising and swelling may occur in treatment areas.
Botox: Relax the muscles that cause crow’s feet and frown lines
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet around the eyes in adults. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a nonsurgical, injectable treatment performed in one of our treatment rooms by a healthcare provider.
Botox: Frequently Asked Questions
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work? 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. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into these muscles to temporarily reduce muscle activity. After an injection, you will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet and frown lines between your brows.
When will I see results? You may begin to notice results within 7 to 10 days for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done? BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to us about the results you want from treatment.

Kybella: No more double chin
KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults that reduces fullness under the chin by destroying fat cells in the treatment area. KYBELLA® is administered over a series of sessions.
Kybella: Frequently Asked Questions
How does Kybella work? 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, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
How many treatments will I need? Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments.
How long will the results last? When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
