Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent frown lines between your brows that developed over time. One ten-minute treatment – a few tiny injections – relaxes the muscles that cause these frown lines between your brows to form and keeps them relaxed up to four months. Botox® Cosmetic has been widely tested and has been approved by the FDA. Dr. Hopkins also uses Botox® to relax forehead lines and crow’s feet. A browlift can also be achieved with injections of Botox® at the outer brow and hairline.
The results are natural appearing and apparent within days. Unlike surgery, Botox® Cosmetic is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. For many, lines are virtually “erased” and easily prevented.
In addition to cosmetic, Botox® also serves as a treatment for migraines, and hyperhidrosis (sweating).
Xeomin®, like Botox® is approved for cosmetic indications. The active ingredient in Xeomin® is a type of botulinum toxin called incobotulinumtoxinA to treat facial wrinkles. In studies, Xeomin® was found to be comparable to BOTOX® in both onset and duration. Unlike BOTOX®, XEOMIN® had no additives; if someone develops antibodies to BOTOX®, making it no longer effective, XEOMIN® is an alternative treatment option for wrinkle reduction.
Prescription Dysport® is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. Also used like Botox® and Xeomin® to treat facial wrinkles from expression. Often used to treat men or women who do not see maximum results from Botox®.
Dysport® is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport® may be comparable to your first use.
In clinical trials, the efficacy of Dysport® was studied in a total of 3 76 patients and was demonstrated with up to 4 repeated treatments. The safety of Dysport® has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments.
With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows, Dysport stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
Aging, genetics, and environmental factors like sun exposure can cause parentheses lines to become more visible. Vollure® softens moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth to produce subtle and long-lasting results for up to 18 months.
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, age-relted volume loss can cause the cheeks to flatten and the skin to sag. Voluma® adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance.
Some women may wish to add subtle volume to their lips; others may want to soften the appearance of their vertical lip lines. Unwanted lines such as these are often caused by factors such as sun exposure or repeated muscle movement. Volbella® adds subtle volume to lips and softens the appearance of vertical lip lines.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an advanced facial injectable treatment indicated for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold (smile lines), contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people. It works gradually to replace collagen that is long during the aging process. Sculptra® Aesthetic, injectable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging. It can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to two years. An average number of treatment sessions of Sculptra® Aesthetic is three injection sessions over a few months. The time between injection sessions give Sculptra® Aesthetic enough time to work so that your doctor can fine-tune your follow-up treatments.
Dr. Hopkins uses Sculptra® to ‘rebuild the foundation” and restore volume and symmetry to the face. These subtle, yet significant changes in volume and symmetry can restore the face to a more youthful and balanced appearance.
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, can show signs of aging, resulting in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products. Using very small needles, Dr. Hopkins can precisely place Restylane Silk® into the lips and vertical lines to reveal a smooth, natural, not over-filled appearance.
Everyone’s facial structure is unique — and so is everyone’s ideal lip shape and size.

Restylane® Lyft is approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. This is in addition to treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).
Dr. Hopkins uses a combination of Restylane Lyft®, Refyne®, Defyne® and/or Silk® to restore volume, as well as even out lines and wrinkles for a beautiful and natural appearance.
As we age, the skin loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural support structures diminish. Over time, those structures such a hyaluronic acid, commonly called HA, begin to disappear, resulting in wrinkles. BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is an injectable filler that quickly integrates into your skin filling in facial wrinkles.1 With BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler, you can replace lost HA caused by the natural aging process. Once injected, it instantly fills in the skin and smoothes out wrinkles on your face. Use BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler to get the results you want for the look you deserve.

KYBELLA® may be right for you if:
KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Eclipse PRP® is a procedure for men and women who suffer from hair loss. PRP treatment begins with a nurse drawing your blood in our office and then spinning it down to harvest your platelet rich plasma. Once the red blood cells are separated from the platelet rich plasma, the nurse then injects the platelet rich plasma into your scalp for hair growth and revitalization of hair follicle. The protocol is one treatment once a month for 3 months.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat spider veins of the legs. Using a syringe with a tiny needle, Dr. Hopkins injects a small amount of a hypertonic saline solution directly into the spider veins causing injury inside the unwanted vessels. Following the injections, patients wear compression stockings in order to compress the treated veins. The blood becomes trapped in the injected veins. The body then gradually absorbs the trapped blood, and the vein disappears over a 3-4 week period. Often 2-3 treatment sessions are required to achieve a 90% or better clearing of the spider veins. The treatments although moderately uncomfortable are very safe and effective.
