Botox and Xeomin - soften lines and help with hyperhidrosis
One of the causes of facial lines and wrinkles is the repeated creasing of the skin through facial expressions – frowning, squinting, pursing, smiling and raising of the eyebrows. Botox or Xeomin (neurotoxins) injected into the appropriate muscles will relax the muscle function that enables those expressions. By relaxing the muscle that repeatedly creases the skin, the skin is able to repair itself. The lines and/or wrinkles often disappear or are significantly softened, depending on the severity of the damage. Botox and Xeomin do not add volume or fill lines.
Botox and Xeomin are also used in helping patients with hyperhidrosis- severe sweating. Sweating can be embarrassing and socially inhibiting. Don’t limit your wardrobe or be afraid to shake someone’s hand…Dr. David Daniels can relieve sweaty underarms or sweaty palms by injecting Botox or Xeomin into the affected area. For a more permanent option for underarm sweating, see our MiraDry procedure.

Fillers - replace volume and/or fill lines
The aging process affects our face in many ways and the loss of facial fullness starts in our twenties. Over time, the loss of volume in our faces is one of the most visually obvious signs of aging. Injectable fillers, such as Juvederm or Radiesse, are an instant result and are used to replace lost volume and/or fill lines as a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation. Juvederm and Radiesse can plump thin or creased lips, augment cheekbones, chin or jawline, restore volume to soft tissue areas such as cheeks. The addition of fillers will decrease the appearance of creases and wrinkles, and can improve the appearance of recessed scarring. Depending on the area of correction and the overall objective, there are different products that can be customized to achieve the desired goal.
RADIESSE® is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and gives an immediate lifting and firming effect of the skin. Once injected, RADIESSE® directly provides volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. Both the gel and the microspheres are completely broken down by the body over time.
BELOTERO BALANCE is an injection that is used to temporarily smooth out and fill in fine lines and nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
TheJUVÉDERM® Collection of fillers are injectable gels made from modified hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body.
- JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is for injection into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, especially around the nose and mouth- is used for lip augmentation for fuller plumper lips.
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is indicated for cheek augmentation to correct age-related volume deficit in the mid-face creating subtle volume to lift and contour.
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for subtle lip augmentation and for correction of lines, “smoker’s lines”, around the mouth.

Kybella - reduce fat under the chin
What is it? What does it do? Kybella is an injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat under the chin to reduce the appearance of your “double chin”. Kybella is a deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella breaks down the existing fat cells and the body naturally disposes of them. Once the fat cells in that area are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat.
What can I expect? Each treatment is multiple injections under the chin and following treatment, patients can expect swelling, bruising and/or numbness that may resolve in 5-7 days. 2 to 4 treatments are required, spaced 6 weeks apart, in order to reach desired goal- depending on the amount of existing fat. Once the aesthetic response is achieved, further treatment should not be necessary.
