No matter how old you are, the aging process affects your facial appearance to some extent. Even if you focus on maintaining proper skin care, there is no way to completely prevent fine lines and wrinkles from developing. Over time, these conditions typically worsen, causing creases, folds, and loss of fullness in the face. To stave off these negative effects and restore a youthful appearance to your face, injectables may be a great option for you.

Which Injectable Is Right for You?BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived from botulinum toxin type A. This neurotoxin temporarily paralyzes the muscles injected, which prevents them from moving and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic typically lasts four to six months.

BOTOX® Cosmetic can effectively treat the following:

  • Wrinkles on the forehead
  • Creases between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lines around the lips


Composed of a substance that naturally occurs in the body (hyaluronic acid), JUVÉDERM® is primarily used to improve moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Results from JUVÉDERM® typically last fourteen months.

JUVÉDERM® effectively treats the following:

  • Lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Hollowness under the eyes
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Thin lips

Dr. Hiatt offers both JUVÉDERM® and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®. During your personal consultation, Dr. Hiatt will help determine which injectable will best meet your needs and desires.

Are You a Candidate?

Be in good health: Patients should have no serious pre-existing medical conditions and should not be allergic any ingredients in the fillers.

Have realistic expectations: Although fillers can provide excellent results, it is important to remember that the results are temporary and less dramatic than what can be achieved with surgical procedures like a facelift.
