At Affiliated Dermatology, we offer our patients a wide range of injectables tailored to suit their needs; from Botox and Dysport, used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, to fillers and volumizers like Juvederm and Restylane, our treatments promote youthful, beautiful-looking skin.
Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved injectables that are aesthetically designed to smooth and diminish wrinkles. The most common areas treated are crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, frown lines, around the eye area and brow lifts. However, other areas are becoming more popular with patients are the lines around the lips, and even underarm sweating. The differences among the neurotoxins vary; product distribution from the injection site, the onset of results and more. Average patient results: 2 to 3 months.
Sweating is a normal process preventing the body from overheating and occurs in response to warm temperatures, nervousness, or exercise. Excessive sweating is an increase in the amount of sweat, usually occurring in the underarms, palms, or feet, while the rest of the body is dry. It occurs for no apparent reason and maybe worse when it is hot or when someone is nervous. The amount of sweat interferes with everyday activities and is a source of embarrassment as it soaks clothing and is visible.
Botox is FDA approved treatment for hyperhidrosis of the underarms. It is a safe and effective treatment that offers quick, dramatic results. To treat excessive sweating, the patient will have tiny amounts of Botox injected over the area of the underarms. The injections temporarily block the chemical in the body that stimulates the sweat glands. Most patients notice results 4-5 days after receiving treatment. Patients will experience reduced sweating the lasts about 6-9 months and sometimes longer. When excessive sweating returns, they can be re-treated.

With over 30 million treatments worldwide and counting, the Restylane line of hyaluronic acid fillers and injectables provides natural-looking results by smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds (Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne), providing subtle lip enhancement and smoothing the lines around them (Restylane Silk), and adding lift and volume to the cheeks (Restylane Lyft). All Restylane products work to enhance facial features and give long-lasting, yet nonpermanent results.
Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.

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).

If you feel that sweat drips excessively from the underarms, causes embarrassment, is getting in the way of your work and social life, and you have tried antiperspirants and other prescription medications that have not been effective, you may be a candidate for Botox for hyperhidrosis.
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.
