Botox Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is indicated in adult patients for the temporary improvement in the appearance of:
Moderate to severe glabellar lines (wrinkles in between eyebrows) associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity
Moderate to severe lateral canthal lines (“crow’s feet) associated with orbicularis oculi activity
Moderate to severe forehead lines associated with frontalis activity
At Alta Dermatology, Botox® Cosmetic injections is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments that we provide. A diluted solution based on the botulinum-A toxin, Botox® Cosmetic injections is safe and has been approved by the FDA for a variety of medical and cosmetic applications, including treatment of frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox® Cosmetic injections relax the facial muscles that are responsible for wrinkles around the forehead, eyes, mouth and elsewhere on the face. When these muscles relax, the skin becomes smoother, and wrinkles can fade or disappear entirely.
We offer a variety of fillers that can treat volume loss in various areas of the face including cheeks and lips. Talk to your provider to see which treatment would be best for you and your treatment goals.
Restylane® treatments are also very popular among our patients. They are approved by the FDA to plump lips and fill in wrinkles and folds, especially in the nasolabial fold (creases running from the bottom of the nose to the corner of the mouth), making the patient’s skin appear smoother and more youthful. The active ingredient in Restylane® is hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally present in our body. Restylane® is synthesized in a laboratory, making it safer than animal-based fillers, like collagen, that sometimes cause allergic reactions.
Depending on the size of the area to be treated, Restylane® injections take less than 30 minutes to apply. Your facial rejuvenation expert will first apply a topical anesthetic to ensure that the procedure is almost painless. After a series of Restylane® injections in the desired areas of the face, the procedure is complete. There is no down time with this procedure. Patients are free to return to normal activities directly after treatment.
Restylane® Silk is used to smooth fine lines around the mouth and lasts up to 6 months.
Restylane® Lyft is a hyaluronic filler that is used to help give volume to the upper part of the face and lasts up to 12 months.
Restylane® Kysse is designed with XpresHAn TechnologyTM and is used as a lip filler because it allows for natural, flexible movement that lasts for up to a year.
Juvederm® Ultra & Ultra Plus
Juvederm® Ultra and Ultra Plus are breakthrough products in the non-animal based filler category known as hyaluronic acid. These FDA approved products have an especially smooth consistency and are used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, especially the nasolabial fold. You’ll get a smooth, natural look and feel that can last up to 12 months; so everyone will notice-but no one will know!
At Alta Dermatology, your cosmetic provider can determine the right area of treatment and the proper type of Juvederm® to use for your skin care needs.
Juvederm Voluma® XC
Juvederm Voluma® XC is the first and only injectable approved by the FDA to fill the age-related volume loss in the cheek area. Like Juvederm® Ultra and Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma® XC is a transparent hyaluronic acid. It can provide contour and a subtle lift for up to 2 years.

Sclerotherapy with Asclera®
Many patients who wish to minimize the appearance of unsightly, easy-to-notice spider veins look to sclerotherapy as a safe, effective treatment. Each sclerotherapy treatment consists of injecting a specially formulated fluid solution directly into the targeted veins, causing the veins to harden and gradually fade. At Alta Dermatology, we use Asclera® a very effective sodium tetradecyl sulfate injection.
