BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical procedure that helps reduce the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. In this procedure, which takes approximately 10 minutes, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles between the brows to reduce the appearance of moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® works by blocking the nerves that contract muscles. The BOTOX® solution is a purified form of botulinum toxin A, so it does not pose any botulism risk.
No anesthesia is required, and you’re ready to go on with your day as soon as the treatment is done! In short, BOTOX® improves your appearance with no down time or recovery. Clients describe the procedure as nearly painless, with phenomenal results.

Sculptra® is a unique collagen volume stimulating treatment, ideal for sagging, wrinkled, aging skin and produces a remarkable non-surgical facial filling. As we age, we lose collagen and our faces 'deflate'. Folds, wrinkles and hollowness appear on our faces. Unlike other products that use fillers to temporarily correct skin imperfections, Sculptra® naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen, resulting in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance. Your results will gradually improve over time and no one but you will know how or what you did. Sculptra® can last up to 2 years though we have actually experienced it lasting much longer in many patients. Unlike surgical procedures, there is none of the downtime and as we continue to age, adjustments are easily made at any time. If you are in your 30's, it is the ideal time to begin Sculptra® as a preventative strategy and can be done a little at a time. If you are looking to treat more mature skin laxity, Sculptra® has actually eliminated the need for a surgical face lift for many people; and, if you've already had a surgical facelift, Sculptra® is the ideal complement to add back that softness and fullness. It is the most successful and cost effective, noninvasive method for "getting your face back".
Dr Black has had extensive training and experience with Sculptra® and performs all of the injections.
As we age, our skin loses its hydrating hyaluronic acid (HA), which leads to the formation of wrinkles and folds. JUVEDERM® helps replace the lost HA while it fills in those lines and wrinkles—such as the “parentheses” or smile lines around the mouth.
JUVEDERM® is FDA-approved to dramatically reduce the appearance of:
Smile lines – lines that run vertically from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth
Marionette lines – vertical wrinkles that form below the corners of the mouth
Vertical lip lines – facial wrinkles above and around the lips.
In addition Juvaderm is an excellent product to increase volume of vthe lip itself.
We offer a variety of procedures and fillers.
Restylane® fillers are injectable gels used to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines, create fuller and more accentuated lips, and add facial volume and contour. All products work to naturally enhance facial features, giving a long-lasting, yet non-permanent results. Whatever your needs are, there’s a treatment that gives the best possible results.
Restylane® Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane® Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane® Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas. That's why it's made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
