1. Which facial areas are treated with Botox
Botox prevents the flexing of muscles that eventually cause wrinkling. Areas that are injected to soften the appearance of wrinkles are the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes.

2. How long does Botox treatment last?
Botox and other botulinum toxin A injections last for about 4 to 6 months, but every patient is different.

3. Which facial areas can be improved with fillers?
Dermal fillers like Juvederm add volume to the depressions around the corners of the mouth and to the cheekbones.

4. How long do Juvederm fillers last?
Most dermal fillers last from 9 to 12 months, depending on the patient and where we’re targeting the injections. Juvederm Voluma, the newest filler, is used on the cheeks and can last as long as 18 months.

5. Why are there so many types of Juvederm?
All the Juvederm injectables are made of hyaluronic acid but with different particle sizes. The size of the particles determines the firmness of the gel filler. Different fillers are best suited for different areas of the face depending on how you want them to look. Volbella is the smallest particle and is used to fill the lines and augment the lips.

6. How does Kybella reduce double-chin tissue?
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. It is a naturally occurring acid in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

7. Is spider sclerotherapy covered by insurance?
Sclerotherapy for spider veins is considered cosmetic and not medically necessary, so it is not covered by insurance.

8. How many sclerotherapy visits will be recommended?
Most patients need around 3 to 5 treatments to be satisfied with the look of their legs. The sclerosing agent irritates the walls of the veins and causes them to collapse and shrink.
