Botox and Dysport

As a non-surgical solution to an array of aesthetic concerns, these injectables work by temporarily altering nerve signals in the treated areas, leading to a reduction in muscle activity or the breakdown of fat cells. By targeting specific muscles or fat deposits, neuromodulators can smooth wrinkles, reduce the appearance of lines, or contour the profile. 

Botox and Dysport focus on relaxing muscles to diminish wrinkles, Common Treatment Areas:

  • Forehead Lines: The application of products like Botox and Dysport across the forehead can significantly soften horizontal lines. This injectable treatment relaxes the forehead muscles, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.
  • Frown Lines (11’s): Injecting neuromodulators between the brows addresses the deep lines that emerge from frowning. This area often shows signs of aging or stress and can benefit from the help of injectable neuromodulators, which offer a more relaxed and refreshed facial expression.
  • Crow’s Feet: The delicate area around the eyes is prone to fine lines from smiling or squinting. Neuromodulators can effectively soften these wrinkles, enhancing the eyes’ natural beauty without altering your facial expressions.

With minimal downtime and immediate results, neuromodulators continue to be a favored choice for those seeking to refresh their appearance.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Juvederm & Restylane

Hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm and Restylane instantly rejuvenate and enhance your facial features with natural-looking results. They leverage hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body, to add volume and hydration where it’s needed most. By integrating with the body’s own hyaluronic acid, these fillers not only fill in wrinkles and lines but also attract moisture to the treated area, providing a plump, youthful appearance.  The choice of which filler to use and how much is based on the location to be treated.  Dr. Tag will go over all the options of the different types of fillers and how long they will last with you prior to injection as part of your consultation.

Some Common Dermal Filler Injection Sites: 

  • Lips: For those desiring fuller, more defined lips, hyaluronic acid fillers offer a customizable solution. Whether adding subtle volume or creating more dramatic results, these fillers can enhance the shape and contour of the lips, balancing facial symmetry and boosting confidence.
  • Nasolabial Folds: The creases that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth, known as nasolabial folds, can be softened and smoothed with the help of these injectable fillers, effectively refreshing the lower face without compromising your natural expressions.
  • Cheeks: Age-related volume loss in the cheeks can be corrected by strategically injecting hyaluronic acid fillers, restoring youthful contours and lifting the mid-face area for a revitalized look.
  • Tear Troughs: For those troubled by hollows under the eyes, specific hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to gently fill these areas, brightening the face and reducing the appearance of tiredness.

Overall, hyaluronic acid fillers provide a versatile option for facial rejuvenation, offering immediate results with minimal downtime.

Poly-L-lactic Acid Fillers 


Poly-L-lactic Acid Fillers represent a unique approach to anti-aging treatments. Unlike traditional injectable fillers, Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s own collagen production, leading to gradual and natural-looking enhancements. Poly-L-lactic acid acts deep within the skin to revitalize collagen synthesis to not only smooth fine lines and wrinkles but also restore facial volume that has been lost due to aging, resulting in a firmer, more youthful complexion over time.

Dermal Filler Injection Sites: 

  • Volume Loss: Sculptra is particularly effective for treating deep lines, wrinkles, and areas of the face that have lost volume. The gradual improvement in skin texture and volume allows for a more natural transition, avoiding the “overdone” look.

Sculptra stands out for its ability to offer long-lasting results, with improvements that can endure for up to two years after the treatment series is complete. Ideal for those seeking subtle yet significant improvements to their facial structure, Sculptra offers a way to age gracefully, enhancing your natural beauty without the need for frequent touch-ups.



Several key factors should guide your decision-making process when deciding which injectable filler treatment is right for you. These considerations ensure that you achieve the most satisfying and appropriate results for your aesthetic goals.

  • Your Goals: The choice of injectable filler is paramount and should be tailored to your specific needs and the area being treated. Factors such as the desired outcome (e.g., volume addition, wrinkle reduction), the longevity of results, and your unique facial anatomy all play critical roles in selecting the right product. Whether seeking subtle enhancement or more significant changes, the right filler or neuromodulator can make all the difference.
  • Technique: The technique of injection, including the depth, angle, and specific area of placement, is crucial for achieving desired outcomes. Precision in technique can enhance your natural beauty, ensure symmetry, and prevent complications. A skilled practitioner like Dr. Tag will understand how to customize the approach for your specific needs, considering your unique facial structure.
  • Provider Expertise: Lastly, the expertise of the healthcare provider is vital. An experienced and knowledgeable practitioner like those on the U Plastic Surgery + Aesthetics team will not only select the appropriate product and technique but also ensure a safe and comfortable experience. Their understanding of facial anatomy, combined with an artistic eye, is essential for results that are both beautiful and natural-looking.

Ultimately, the best way to learn which treatment is right for you is to seek a consultation with Dr. Tag at U Plastic Surgery + Aesthetics.
