Botox® has been one of the most popular injectables for cosmetic use for many decades, after being introduced in the 1980s. Botox® works by temporarily relaxing muscles at the injection sites, including around the eye to target crow’s feet and between the brows to soften lines called 11s. Treatment creates a smoother appearance and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, forehead, and on the chin – any location where repeat facial expression cause creases in the soft tissue. Botox® injection results usually last an average of four to six months.
Dysport® is a similar injectable to Botox and is used to relax facial muscles which commonly produce fine lines and wrinkles. The difference between the two is minor but still important to consider; Dysport® tends to have more immediate effects that Botox®, but the effects may not last quite as long. Dysport® also tends to diffuse more than Botox®, leading to a softer result. Ultimately, these two injectables are quite similar, but the subtle differences are what may lead Dr. Farber to suggest one or the other, depending on his patient’s unique needs.
Xeomin® is a neurotoxin like Botox® and Dysport®, as it uses botulinum type A to relax muscles that cause expression lines, resulting in a smooth, youthful-looking appearance. The difference between Xeomin® and the other two toxin injectables Dr. Farber uses is that Xeomin® contains only one ingredient and no additives. For this reason, Dr. Farber may choose it for those who are sensitive to additives.
Both dermal fillers and neurotoxin injectables can be effective alternatives to invasive procedures and produce incredible results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Farber, he will take the time to learn more goals for injectable treatment, so you can choose the best type or combination of solutions to achieve your best results.

Meet Dr. Farber

Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic-acid-based (HA) dermal filler, like Belotero®. It works by filling in areas of the face that have lost volume or that appear hollow. Juvéderm® has an intermediate and is softer than other HA fillers which means it works better for filling in deep wrinkles and folds. Because it is injected slightly deeper into the skin, Juvéderm® can also add structure to the cheekbone area and can also be used for lip augmentation. Results of Juvéderm® can be seen immediately after treatment and last from one to two years.
Volbella® is part of the Juvéderm® line and is used to enhance lip volume. By plumping the lips, Volbella® adds volume and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that can form due to repeated expressions, smoking, or the natural effects of aging. Volbella® can last up to one year with the average patient returning within nine to twelve months for a touch-up.
Vollure® is another member of the Juvéderm® family and uses hyaluronic acid to treat moderate to severe facial folds, such as the nasolabial folds that occur from the nose to the mouth and ‘marionette lines.’ The lower concentration of hyaluronic acid makes Vollure® ideal for smoothing lower parts of the face and results in a longer-lasting, smoother appearance. Most patients experience results from Vollure® for up to 18 months.
Radiesse® + Radiesse® for Hands
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that uses Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, thereby restore restoring the volume of facial soft tissue. It also helps with natural collagen production, supporting results that can still be seen after the CaHA has been absorbed by the body. Radiesse® tends to last longer than HA fillers (up to 18 months) and stimulates collagen. In addition to being used on the face, Radiesse® can also be used on the back of the hands to reduce the appearance of veins and tendons, creating full, smooth, and youthful looking skin.
Restylane® Silk uses small, smooth hyaluronic particles to provide filler for small, targeted areas. Silk filler is ideal for enhancing lips or lower eyelid hollowing and bags. 98% of patients saw an increase in fullness of the lips or eyes and a reduction of fine lines around the mouth area after a Silk injection.
Restylane® & Restylane® Lyft
Restylane® is another hyaluronic dermal filler that Dr. Farber often recommends to plump and volumize skin. It can be used to smooth lines and wrinkles and increase volume, as well as enhance the lips. Restylane® Lyft was specifically designed to add fullness to the midface and cheek area as well as the back of the hands. Results of Restylane® Lyft last from six to twelve months.
Restylane® Refyne & Defyne
Restylane® Refyne is a specially formulated dermal filler that uses XpresHAn technology to gently and naturally smooth nasolabial folds and marionette lines. The unique technology is designed to support normal facial expressions and is perfect for those who want natural-looking results.
Restylane® Defyne is like Refyne but is normally used to treat deeper lines in the nasolabial area and around the nose and mouth (marionette lines). With its innovative crosslinking technology, this HA-based filler is perfect for those who want a more structured filler.
Sculptra® is a dermal filler that uses polylactic acid to stimulate the growth of collagen. Through the formation of a collagen lattice-work, Sculptra® is a good option for full face volumization. This collagen production will help patients to see continued improvement in fine lines and wrinkles and reduction of hollowness for up to two years. Sculptra® is perfect for long-term rejuvenation and is recommended for patients who don’t mind waiting a bit to see results and want to minimize touch-ups as much as possible. Sculptra® can also be used for soft tissue augmentation of the body, such as for buttock augmentation for those patients who want a non-surgical alternative to buttocks augmentation.
