What is BOTOX®?
Botulinum toxin is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures performed for the temporary correction of certain facial wrinkles. It is a series of small intramuscular injections of an FDA approved purified protein. Frown lines and small wrinkles happen because the muscles that control facial expression are used often. Botulinum toxin works by reducing the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines, such as those between the brows and crows feet, that cause wrinkles to form over time. The result is a smoother appearance of these areas for up to 4 months. Jeuveau®, Dysport®, Botox®, and Xeomin® are used by Dr. Thompson. Pricing starts at just $8.49/unit.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
Botox works by temporarily relaxing muscle movement under your skin. When you make a facial expression, the muscles under your skin cause your skin to fold. Over time, repeated movements create noticeable lines and wrinkles. By relaxing the muscles under your skin and halting movement, Botox allows the skin to relax and smooth out, diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Dermal Filler Treatment
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat, and dermal fillers can help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face caused by that loss. The facial skin also stretches, adding to facial volume loss. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Injectable dermal fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles and improve the appearance of recessed scars. Dr. Thompson uses Versa®, Perfectha®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Juvederm® and Belotero® for procedures. Pricing starts at $425.
