BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. We inject BOTOX® into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
- Cheeks: As you age, the cheeks may flatten and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface, which provides lift and contour to the cheek area.

KYBELLA® is a non-surgical solution that helps improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” At each treatment, you will receive small injections under your chin, which takes 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired end-result. A consultation with Dr. Ali will determine how many injections you will need and if you are a candidate for KYBELLA®.
