Injectable Fillers


A lifetime of involuntary facial muscle actions accumulate and contribute to the formation of detrimental wrinkles, creases, and lines that can negatively impact your facial appearance. These effects can cause you to inadvertently appear angry, tired, and even older than you feel.

While aging might be inevitable, modern medicine has provided an unprecedented arsenal of gentle, non-surgical treatment options that combat the most noticeable, stubborn, and frustrating facial imperfections.

Injectable neurotoxins relax and help erase wrinkles from the face and neck region and are among the most common and effective non-surgical treatment options. At the Facial Surgery Center, we offer several options for patients interested in pursuing this path and relieving the adverse effects of aging.




Injectable Fillers


Neurotoxins such as Botox, Jeauveau, and Xeomin are a safe, non-surgical means to improve one’s facial appearance without an invasive surgical procedure. These procedures reduce wrinkles, sculpt facial facials, and enhance volume in areas that have deteriorated due to time and environmental stressors.

This is accomplished by injection of the neurotoxins that temporarily paralyze the target muscles of the forehead, eyebrows, and area around the eye region.

The neurotoxin enters the bloodstream and blocks the transmission of signals from the nerves to the target muscle, relaxing the surrounding skin, and lowering the likelihood of future ones forming for a set period of time.

Effects remain for up to four months but with longer, consistent treatments, the results can be amplified and last even longer.


Neurotoxins are a remarkably effective treatment option that can address a wide array of issues for patients. Wrinkle reduction or elimination, frown lines, and forehead creases, virtually all the adverse effects of aging can be targeted and minimized—if not outright eliminated. Here are some of the most pressing facial problems neurotoxins have a track record of success against:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Forehead wrinkles and lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Bunny lines (nose wrinkles
  • Downturned corners of the mouth
  • Gummy smile
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Wrinkling on the neck
  • Platysmal lines
  • Chin dimpling
  • Poor jawline definition
  • Masseter hypertrophy
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Migraine relief
  • TMJ (jaw joint) pain
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Neck bands


Neurotoxins also can serve as an effective means to treat chronic migraines as they can stem harmful signals from the muscles surrounding the brain from ever being transmitted. 

Injectable neurotoxin treatment has also become popular in the outright prevention of wrinkles for younger patients in their 20s and 30s. The idea of “pre-juvenation” targets hyperactive moment areas to help slow or stop the formation of wrinkles and lines before they form.

As with any treatment option, the technology is only as good as the doctor wielding it. Dr. Hochman performs ALL injections himself and has years of experience doing so. To ensure the best possible outcome and lasting results, go with the experts who can advise and implement an effective plan for your particular case and needs.


Using a tiny needle, we inject the formula just below the targeted area. The procedure is quick, requires no surgery, and has little to no downtime. Relatively painless, some patients experience minor discomfort at the injection site for a short period of time following the procedure.

  • Procedure
    • Injection of the neurotoxin into the patient’s target area
  • Length
    • After initial consultation, the injection process takes from 15 to 30 minutes depending on the number of patient treatment areas
  • Anesthesia
    • PRO-NOX patient-controlled gas, local, or topical application 
  • Recovery
    • Temporary redness or bruise at the injection site
    • 3-5 days to see the effects
    • Three weeks to see maximum results



A cosmetic treatment that temporarily reduces wrinkles, fine lines, and other facial markings, this name has become synonymous with facial rejuvenation over the past few decades. This neurotoxin is produced by the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum and functions by blocking nerve impulses that cause muscle contractions and subsequent skin wrinkles and lines. By injecting this toxin into the target area around the wrinkles, the skin’s appearance is smoothed and appears brimming with life after a few short days.

An incredibly popular treatment option, the effects last up to six months with some variance from person to person based on their unique conditions.



Javeau’s #NEWTOX is another neurotoxin that can wipe away wrinkles and fine lines virtually anywhere on the face. The active ingredient of Prabotulinu ToxinA functions by blocking nerve signals to the muscle, allowing them to relax and restoration to occur.

These effects last for three to four months with a quick and easy treatment procedure and minimal downtime



Xeomin differs from the pack by blocking the release of certain neurotransmitters through the body but with a similar effect of muscle relaxation and skin revitalization. An incredibly safe and proven treatment option, the effects last for three to four months and patients rarely have a significant recovery time.

Injectables have become an industry standard treatment option as they are safe, effective, and remove unsightly wrinkles while protecting the face from future lines from forming. As a non-surgical alternative, there’s no better option on the market than these three neurotoxins that have a proven history of success with patients.


Injectable neurotoxins are a safe and proven process but for the best results, you need an experienced physician to help avoid serious side effects. If improperly applied, lumps and asymmetrical volume can appear, which is why Dr. Hochman does all of these injections himself as he has performed thousands of successful procedures.

There’s no other treatment option that works as quickly and effectively as neurotoxins, and when you contact the Facial Surgery Center, we can help guide you to the best treatment option to obtain the results you desire and deserve!




Dermal fillers have been on the rise for years as an injectable treatment option that effectively combats wrinkles, fine lines, and other facial imperfections that tend to accumulate as we age.

These formulas are injected into the targeted area to give volume, life, and striking contours back to the face while softening and erasing wrinkles. This results in a more youthful appearance that looks like magic but feels quite real.

Typically these fillers are made with:

  • Collagen
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Fat (relocated from patient’s body)


Results last anywhere from a few months to several years and at the Facial Surgery Center, we can effectively guide you to the best, longest-lasting and natural-looking results. 



An experienced healthcare provider is a must when considering dermal fillers, as only they are qualified to evaluate and determine the best course of action for each unique case. We provide free consultation to first evaluate a patient’s procedure, and discuss the potential risks, side effects, and desired results.

Common initial side effects include:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Redness near the injection site


Which typically heal and disappear after a few days. Infection, allergic reactions, or even facial paralysis are possible but rare with this treatment option.



  • Procedure
    • Injection of the dermal filler into the patient’s target area
  • Length
    • After initial consultation, the injection process takes from 15 to 30 minutes depending on the number of patient treatment areas
  • Anesthesia
    • PRO-NOX patient-controlled gas, local, or topical application 
      • Patients MUST stop any NSAID pain relievers, including aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen, Aleve, or fish oil supplements for at least one week before the procedure to minimize bruising and swelling and avoid scheduling any important social events for a few days after the injections.
  • Recovery
    • Temporary redness or bruise at the injection site
    • 3-5 days to see the effects
    • Three weeks to see maximum results
