Botulinum toxin type A is an injectable neurotoxin, better known by brand names such as Botox Cosmetic. These treatments are the most popular single cosmetic procedure in the nation.
Botox Cosmetic is mainly used to smooth wrinkles that form as a result of facial movements like frowning, squinting, smiling or other expressions. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, causing them to relax. The result is a softening of those lines and wrinkles.
This type of injectable can help improve appearance, as well as help alleviate an overly concerned look. The result is a more refreshed, pleasant, relaxed appearance.

Many people may think because Botox is advertised in day spas and other non-medical offices, they are on par with getting a manicure, a facial or a haircut. However, though non-surgical, injections are a medical procedure requiring specific training, knowledge and skill to ensure the injections are administered safely and effectively. At Edmond Eye Associates, your injections will be given by a trained medical professional.
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to help restore lost volume and smooth away facial lines and wrinkles such as laugh lines and the creases that run from your nose to your mouth. They can also enhance facial contours and the appearance of your lips.
Each year, more than a million people choose dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation. It can be a cost-effective way to achieve a more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime.
Dermal fillers can be used to address these issues, as well as others:
- Smooth out lines around the nose and mouth, also known as marionette lines or smile lines
- Enhance and restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples
- Diminish vertical lip lines
- Plump and enhance lips
- Smooth out a chin crease
- Improve symmetry among facial features.
In general, dermal fillers are categorized by the substance from which they are made. Dr. Sigler and his team will help you decide which filler is best for you.
A Word About Safety: It is important for your safety to always make sure you are receiving FDA-approved, brand name fillers, which are only available through a licensed physician.
