While many patients gravitate toward surgical procedures to help reverse the ill effects of the aging process, there are those that prefer a more non-invasive approach.
Today’s cutting edge technology has delivered remarkable formulations that help to combat wrinkles, folds, creases and fine lines, while also compensating beautifully for lost facial volume.

Each type of injectable is different. BOTOX cosmetic works to limit the motion of specifically-targeted facial muscles to smooth lines and wrinkles. When correctly applied, it creates a more youthful appearance – not frozen. When used regularly, BOTOX not only reduces the appearance of lines and creases, it can prevent further wrinkle development on forehead, between brows, and around the eyes. Beautiful results come about through the skills of the injector. Choose Dr. Allen Gabriel for BOTOX – at his medspa, you can be confident that your results will appear fresh and natural.
As you begin to age, your body loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin, the elements that keep skin looking firm and youthful. As these elements diminish, the facial skin loses volume, with hollows appearing at the cheeks and under the eyes. Juvéderm Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler which is ideal for the correction of age-related volume loss in the mid-face. When injected by Dr. Gabriel’s expert hands, Juvéderm Voluma XC lifts the tissue of the mid-face, enhancing volume and smoothing lines and creases. This long-lasting dermal filler can provide results for 18 to 24 months.
The lips are considered to be one of the most alluring features on a woman’s face, and one of the most memorable. When the visible signs of aging set in, your lips can lose fullness, with lines, and wrinkles appearing around the mouth. Juvéderm Ultra XC was created to enhance lip volume, so they look more youthful and desirable. Through a series of injections carefully placed by Dr. Gabriel, your lips can appear plump, fresh, and youthful in the most natural way.
Juvéderm Volbella XC is a hyaluronic acid-based filler designed to give your lips subtle enhancement for lasting results. Carefully-placed injections provide your desired volume, while simultaneously smoothing vertical lip lines. After a quick, 30-minute procedure, the hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm Volbella XC plumps your lips, so they attract and maintain hydration for an attractive, youthful pout. Since Juvéderm Volbella XC was created specifically for lip enhancement, the extra cushion provided mimics the natural feel of your lips, for a soft, and natural-looking enhancement. The subtle contour of your lips created with Juvéderm Volbella XC injections can last for up to one year.
Dermal fillers contain a number of key ingredients that can help rejuvenate the complexion, soften the skin and minimize wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is used in fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm to help replenish the HA lost with advancing years. Hyaluronic acid is a compound found naturally in the human body that promotes the skin’s hydration, resilience and its youthful glow.
Collagen is another key compound that begins to diminish as we age. When we lose collagen in the face, we may see dull, sagging contours and a hollowed look in the eyes and cheeks. Injectables can help combat this condition, providing a better scaffolding for the skin and filling in facial depressions. Fillers such as Sculptra contain poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that can help restore dwindling supplies of collagen.
