Some women – and men – are not ready for surgical procedures to restore a more youthful appearance, yet they wish to look younger, refreshed, and rejuvenated. We are living longer than ever before and taking better care of our health and our bodies. We feel vital, we're active, and we want our faces to mirror our still-youthful minds and hearts.

Yet the signs of a life well-lived – smiling, frowning, squinting, laughing, enjoying a good meal, and some of our beloved vices such as cigar and cigarette smoking -- creates repetitive facial movements that eventually lead to one of the most common signs of aging: wrinkles. They can make you appear tired or even angry when you are not.

Enter botulinum toxin, one of the most important substances to hit the field of facial rejuvenation. Short of a surgical facelift, this substance is the most popular way to reduce facial wrinkles. Botulinum toxin can be used as a wrinkle treatment to smooth:

  • Frown lines

  • Crow’s feet

  • Forehead furrows

  • Skin bands on the neck

If you'd like look in the mirror and see a return to the youthful fullness your face once had, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours, soften those facial creases and wrinkles, then dermal fillers may be the answer. Dermal fillers have been called "liquid facelifts" because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.

Although they can't help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. These injectable treatments aren't permanent, however, and they must be repeated and maintained.

Some dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of botulinum toxin. Dr. Westine and the team at Delray Plastic Surgery will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.

There are many injectables on the market today, with more in the FDA pipeline. Not all injectable fillers are the same; even injectables approved by the FDA may not have an excellent safety record. Dr. Westine only utilizes injectables with extensive clinical studies and consistently excellent results, minimizing any risk to his patients.

Our Facial Filler Philosophy

Safety is dependent on a skilled injector and use of appropriate injectable materials. Specific skin types often have improved results with specific types of facial fillers. Dr. Westine applies a conservative approach in facial fillers, utilizing only those with a proven track record of safety and minimal complications.

Many physicians from a variety of fields inject facial fillers. However, there is an art to the science of the successful placement of facial fillers, and as a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Westine is eminently trained and capable of creating the desired visual impact through the skilled use of injectables, creating results in which the entire face appears younger, more refreshed, and aesthetically balanced.

Delray Beach Plastic Surgery offers a wide variety of non-invasive, non-surgical office treatments to enhance your appearance. Injectable treatments are quick, comfortable, and there is little or no downtime.
