Botox®/Dysport®/Xeomin®/Jeuveau™ are minimally invasive injectables that aim to give patients a happier, more relaxed appearance with minimal side effects and zero scarring or downtime. Botox®/Dysport®/Xeomin®/Jeuveau™ can reverse signs of aging by temporarily relaxing underlying muscles. Although the procedure is most commonly done for cosmetic reasons, it is also FDA-approved for a number of medical purposes.
Botox®/Dysport®/Xeomin®/Jeuveau™ Can Treat:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Smile/laugh lines
- Bunny lines
- Frown lines between brows
- Excessive sweating
- Lax lower eyelid skin
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
It can take upwards of 72-hours for Botox®/Dysport®/Xeomin®/Jeuveau™ to take effect. Typically, final results are not seen until 7-10 days post-treatment. After 3-6 months fine lines and wrinkles will gradually begin to reappear. Maintenance treatments can be safely performed as needed.
Does It Hurt?*
You may feel a slight pressure during the micro-injection process but, otherwise, Botox® treatments are quite tolerable. Immediately following your appointment, you’re free to go about your normal daily routine.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You may be a good candidate for Botox®/Dysport®/Xeomin®/Jeuveau™ if you would like to treat any of the above cosmetic concerns without the downtime associated with more invasive procedures. During your in-person consultation, an expert injector at Image Surgical Arts will complete a full facial evaluation and talk to you about your short and long-term goals. Together you can decide what’s right for you. *Individual results may vary.
At Image Surgical Arts of Brentwood, we offer an extensive collection of high-quality hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Whatever your aesthetic concerns, we’re sure to have something for your individual needs. At your in-person consultation, Kristin Torres will talk to you about your options and create a customized plan to help you meet your goals.
Vobella is designed specifically to treat the lip and mouth area. It’s a softer formula that provides a natural look and feel. Vobella can help you define the lip border, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and give you a full, plump lip. An ultra-fine needle and lidocaine-enhanced hyaluronic acid filler are used to minimize discomfort during your treatment. Results may vary from person to person, but you can expect your Vobella treatment to last about 12-months.
You may want to consider Vollure if you would like to address laugh lines, marionette lines, or restore lost volume to the mid-face. Clinical studies have shown this lidocaine-enhanced formula can last 18-months or longer with a proper skincare regime.
Juvederm Ultra can be used to treat a wide variety of facial cosmetic concerns including facial wrinkles and folds. Your Juvederm Ultra procedure can be done in-office in as little as 15-minutes. An ultra-fine needle and lidocaine are used to keep you as comfortable as possible. The long-lasting effects of this product won’t begin to wear off for 12-months or longer.
Juvederm Ultra Plus
Juvederm Ultra Plus is made of a fuller formula with less elasticity. Deep folds, wrinkles, and scars throughout the face can be reduced to upwards of 12-months or more. As with most Juvederm products, this filler is enhanced with lidocaine to minimize discomfort during the injection process.
Restylane Silk is a FDA-approved dermal filler that subtly corrects lines and wrinkles around the mouth. As we get older, collagen levels start to decline, which means exaggerated and repeated mouth movements start to form wrinkles and fine lines. Restylane Silk smooths out these wrinkles in a way that allows the mouth to continue its natural movements, all while looking younger and more rejuvenated.
Restylane Lyft is an FDA-approved dermal filler that’s used to augment cheek volume. As we get older, collagen, elastin, and skin elasticity starts to break down. This combined effect can create cheek sagging and volume loss in key facial areas. Restylane Lyft is an excellent solution for patients who may be experiencing volume loss and are looking to restore youthful volume in the cheeks, all while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
Restylane Refyne is an FDA-approved dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid gel to smooth away the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. These wrinkles often form as a result of exaggerated and repeated mouth movements, like talking, smiling, and laughing. Restylane Refyne is an excellent solution for patients who want to treat moderate- to- severe nasolabial folds and marionette lines around the nose, mouth, and chin.
Restylane Defyne is an FDA-approved dermal filler that uses a patented hyaluronic acid gel to smooth away the appearance of moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds and marionette lines. These wrinkles often form due to years of exaggerated and repeated movements of the mouth. Restylane Defyne is an excellent solution for patients who want to minimize the appearance of these lines without inhibiting normal mouth movements.
Revanesse Versa is an FDA-approved dermal filler that uses hyalouronic acid to treat facial wrinkles and creases. Versa is designed to address the nasolabial folds of the face. These wrinkles are often called “laugh lines” and form due to repeated smile-like movements of the mouth. Revanesse Versa can reduce the appearance of these lines without restricting the natural movement of your face.
Sculptra is a dermal filler that utilizes poly-L-lactic acid to replace lost collagen and volume in the body. Sculptra is suitable for the treatment of wrinkles, folds, and scars in various facial regions such as the cheek, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Sculptra injections are also used in other areas of the body to round out the hips, provide lift to the bottom, and add volume to the buttocks. This dermal filler can also address temple hollows and cheek depression while still allowing for natual movement of the face.

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable designed to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness. Typically, the fat found below the chin is non-responsive to diet and exercise, especially when caused by genetics. The non-surgical procedure can be done with a quick, in-office visit and has minimal side effects and virtually zero downtime.
- Reduce the appearance a double chin
- Define the profile
- Treat moderate to severe fullness
- Improve self-image and confidence
How Does It Work?
At the time of your Kybella® appointment, one of Image Surgical Arts ’s expert injectors will mark the injection sites and apply a topical numbing agent. They will then strategically make multiple small injections to the predetermined treatment area. The deoxycholic acid-based injectable breaks down and absorbs localized pockets of fat. During your initial consultation, Dr. Harris and his staff will walk you through every aspect of your upcoming procedure in-depth.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
Results from Kybella® are not immediate. It takes time for your body to naturally absorb and expel dead fat cells. On average, you can expect to see results from your initial Kybella® treatment about 4-6 weeks later. Anywhere from 2-6 treatments may be necessary to help you achieve your desired outcome. However, Kybella® provides long-lasting results. Once existing fat is gone, it isn’t coming back. Fluctuations in weight can have adverse effects on your treatment. *Individual results may vary.
Does It Hurt?*
Most patients find the procedure quite tolerable. A topical anesthetic cream will be applied beforehand to make the treatment more comfortable. During the 15-20 minute injection process, you may feel slight pressure from the small needle. After your Kybella® procedure, you’re free to return to normal activities as needed.
Common side effects may include slight swelling, bruising, redness, or numbness. Any symptoms of your Kybella® treatment should subside within several days. It’s important to choose a skilled injector such as Dr. Brady Harris or one of his trusted, expert injectors to perform your Kybella® treatment to ensure the best possible outcome with the least amount of recovery time.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Men and women who are bothered by their profile or a double chin can benefit from the procedure. Ideal candidates are patients who are in good general health and are non-smokers.
