Your first impression is the most important one you’ll make and, oftentimes, that impression resonates from the outward appearance you present to the world. Unfortunately, this might mean that wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet can be making your look older or more tired than you truly are. Injectables are an excellent option for non-surgical rejuvenation.
At Luxe Plastic Surgery, our plastic surgeon, Dr. Malik Kutty, offers a variety of dermal fillers that can be used to stop wrinkles from forming or eliminate their appearance altogether. To schedule a consultation about dermal fillers, please contact us today by calling (281) 815-2277.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin®
Wrinkles form in your tissues because of repeated muscle movements in the same place. The tissues underneath respond by depressing slightly, leaving wrinkles and fine lines behind. One of the ways to stop these wrinkles from forming is to stop the muscles in your face from being able to contract. Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® work by stopping the chemical signals that trigger your muscles to contract. Because the muscles can no longer contract, the wrinkles in your face will not get any worse and will also begin to fade.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® are injected through a tiny needle that you’ll barely even notice. Side effects are highly unlikely and, if they occur, are typically minor swelling and redness at the injection site.
Where Can BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® Be Used?
In order to eliminate wrinkles and prevent further ones from forming, BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® can be injected into the following areas:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Eyebrow lines

Belotero® is an injectable that is used to fill in fine lines and surface wrinkles. It is composed of hyaluronic acid, which naturally exists in your skin so it doesn’t pose an allergy risk. Belotero® has a very fine texture so it can be used to fill in even the smallest of lines without leaving any type of unnatural appearance. It can be used for the following:
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkles in the eyebrow area
- Fine lines in the lip area
- Forehead lines
Juvéderm® is dermal filler designed to reduce facial wrinkles by adding volume to the depressed area. It is a gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring component of healthy skin, and helps restore hydration and volume to sunken tissues.
Juvéderm® doesn’t require surgery, anesthesia, or any down time, and the injection process only takes about ten minutes. It can be used to add volume and hydrate facial lines and wrinkles or to correct very deep wrinkles that many other injectables can’t penetrate.
Dysport® is similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic in that it stops muscle contractions from occurring where it is injected. By stopping these contractions, wrinkles can’t form and existing wrinkles will fade away eventually. Dysport® can be used on crow’s feet, forehead lines, and vertical lip lines.
Radiesse® is a facial filler that is designed to penetrate deep into facial folds and troughs. Radiesse® adds volume in and of itself, but also encourages natural collagen development which helps your body to fill in wrinkles, facial folds, and troughs. It can be used in the following areas:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines (lines that go downward from the corners of your mouth)
- Wrinkles surrounding the nose or mouth
- Nasolabial folds (lines connecting your nose to the corner of your lips)
Hyaluronic acid is imperative for your skin to maintain its elasticity and fullness. Without enough hyaluronic acid, your skin can look sunken, tired, and weathered. Restylane® is injected into areas of your tissues that are lacking in hyaluronic acid and help to restore volume and encourage naturally-healthy skin.
It can be used in the following areas:
- Lines from the corners of your mouth
- Smile lines
- Under the eyes
Restylane® can also be used for lip or cheek augmentation. Our plastic surgeon can inject the gel into your lips in any way that you’d like your lips to be shaped. If you’d like your cheeks to have a fuller look, a simple injection of Restylane® can also accomplish this for you.
