Injectables and Dermal Fillers in Augusta, Ga
Whether you are young or not so young if you want to prevent or treat frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet, plump your lips, get rid of under-eyebags and wrinkles, we have you covered. Dr. Sherman offers a variety of neurotoxins and fillers at New Skin Medical Spa in Augusta, Ga. Book Now!
Neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin, are performed to temporarily weaken the muscles that allow for certain expressions that cause unwanted frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. The average duration of neurotoxins is 3-months but they can last a bit longer depending on the patient’s age, and genetics. Neurotoxins are not used to create volume or to minimize wrinkles of the mid-face. Visit our specials page to view our seasonal offers.
Dermal Fillers such as Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne and Refyne or Juvederm Fillers are the best option to restore volume and fill in lines and wrinkles. Fillers can be used to plump cheeks and define jawlines, fill in lines around the nose and mouth.
Restylane Kysse is the latest FDA approved filler to plump, define, and shape lips. Restylane Kysse lasts up to 1 year. Maintenance treatments are recommended within 6-8 months of injections to keep fullness if so desired.
Aging can leave us with fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss, and sagging skin as permanent reminders of the passing years. Dr. Sherman can resort to nonsurgical injectables to erase these signs of aging and restore smooth, tightened youthful-looking skin that can last 6-months or longer depending on the product used.
Dermal Fillers are also frequently performed to fill in scars or skin imperfections in men and women of all ages. Trending in Aesthetics for 2020/2021 includes jawline and chin defining/edging utilizing special filler techniques.
Combine injectables and fillers with the latest treatments such as CoolPeel™, VirtueRF, Skinwave, and more for even better results. Certain procedures will have to be effectively timed (a few weeks apart from filler and neurotoxins) for best results.

Injectables & Dermal Fillers Frequently Asked Questions
Any individual who is unhappy with their facial shape or wants to counter the effects of aging (including wrinkles and volume loss) may be a candidate for treatment with Neurotoxins or dermal fillers. Ideal candidates are not interested in surgery or are not yet in need of surgery to rejuvenate their faces. Young people are now getting filler for lip volume, nose shaping, and jaw contouring.
Neurotoxins work by temporarily slowing or stopping the tiny muscle movements that are responsible for wrinkles in the forehead, brow, and eye area.
Neurotoxins last an average of 3-4 months. The exact duration depends on the patient’s age, genetics, and the dose of neurotoxin injected. Some patients experience longer-lasting results with one or the other product, and others swear by alternating the neurotoxins.
HA fillers such as Restylane products and Juvederm products are made largely of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally produced in the body and which provides nutrients and moisture to the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers are easy to administer and deliver smooth results. Long-Lasting filler “Radiesse” is made of a water-based gel with calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. This injectable adds instant fullness and stimulates collagen production to help the skin renew itself over time. *Take note that Radiesse cannot be dissolved easily and can last as long as 1-5 years.
For most patients, results from these treatments are visible instantly. Best results are seen once the initial swelling subsides which is about a week after injections.
For most patients, results from HA fillers can last anywhere between 4-6months or longer. Results can vary from patient to patient and depend largely on age, genetics, and the specific product injected. Long-lasting fillers such as Restylane Kysse may last as long as 8-months to one year, and Radiesse can last 1 year or longer.
