Botox & Fillers
Eliminating Wrinkles Has Never Been Easier
Injectable treatments, such as BOTOX cosmetic and injectable fillers, offer a quick, effective, long-lasting, and non-surgical alternative to cosmetic surgery for individuals who are seeking to correct minor imperfections or keep their skin and face looking healthy and refreshed, yet natural. If you would like to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, laugh lines, crow’s feet, or sunken areas—or if you simply would like to look more rejuvenated while remaining very natural—injectables may be for you.

BOTOX is an extremely popular and very effective cosmetic treatment. It is a purified protein that works to temporarily relax facial muscles so they don't contract strongly and accentuate deep expression lines. BOTOX is safe, and Dr. Eliopoulos assures patients they will not end up with a mask-like expression, just a more refreshed look.EnlargeView All
As we age, our skin loses tightness and elasticity. When this happens, repetitive muscle contractions cause wrinkles to materialize in the form of frown lines, “crow’s feet,” and forehead furrows.
By blocking the chemicals that cause facial muscles to contract, BOTOX cosmetic temporarily relaxes these wrinkles to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
The procedure is simple, involving a series of small injections just below the surface skin of the area being treated. No anesthesia is necessary, and there’s no post-procedural downtime.
Initial redness or swelling disappears in about an hour, and your rejuvenating results should reach full bloom within three to seven days. BOTOX injectable treatments typically produce results that last between three and six months.
For treatment of Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
Embarrassed or frustrated by undesirable underarm sweating? Botox is an FDA approved treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) when topical agents fail to control perspiration. Botox injections work by blocking nerve signals to sweat glands resulting in decreased underarm sweating. You will notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within 4 weeks of your treatment and results should last typically 4-6 months.

Youthful skin naturally contains an abundance of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Collagen is a protein that provides skin with structural support and elasticity, while hyaluronic acid acts as a sponge, binding water to hydrate skin, giving it volume. As we age, however, both substances slowly begin to dissipate, allowing for the formation of lines and wrinkles, especially around the nose and mouth. In addition, loss of facial volume can give a hollow, shadowed appearance to the cheek areas. Time, sun exposure, and other environmental factors can contribute to a loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid, which can be treated with injectable fillers. Injectable fillers are effective for filling in volume loss and softening wrinkles and folds. Some fillers are best for volumizing and others work on fine lines. A combination of fillers can be used for optimal results.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC
The aging process is certainly 3-dimensional. Over the years we tend to lose fat in our face, especially in the cheeks. Dr. Eliopoulos also sees this midface volume loss in her patients who are avid exercisers with lean body mass. This volume loss and flattening of the cheek area can give us a more tired, drawn, aged appearance due to the shadowing effect and by contributing to skin excess at the nasolabial folds (lines running from corner of nose to the corner of the mouth) and below the eye area. Patients often say that they feel like their face and skin looks “saggier”. Considering cheek augmentation can be a very effective first step to rejuvenate the face and restore a more youthful, natural contour. Cheek augmentation tends to lessen the amount of excess skin in the nasolabial region by augmenting the underlying bony structure and providing a “lifting” effect. Commonly as a result, the nasolabial folds are softened and less volume of filler may be needed to provide full correction in the nasolabial fold if that is desired as well.
Juvederm Voluma XC is the first FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the midface. With Voluma, Dr. Eliopoulos can create a smoother contour and a more youthful appearance. Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler that was created using special technology that contributes to its lift capacity and duration. Voluma has a smooth consistency that allows for a very smooth, natural-looking lift to the midface. In studies, results have lasted up to 2 years when optimal treatments were performed. The treatment is very tolerable because the product comes mixed with numbing medicine and you can see the results immediately!
If you are wondering if Voluma XC is a nice option for you, please call our office for a personal consultation.
This injectable dermal filler uses HYLACROSS technology to replace skin’s hyaluronic acid, restoring volume while smoothing wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM is a gel infused with lidocaine that primarily treats unwanted lines in the nose and mouth areas. When injected into the lips, it provides a plumping, volumizing effect. What distinguishes JUVÉDERM from other hyaluronic acid replacements on the market is the gel’s smoother consistency, which delivers natural-looking, long-lasting results. The results achieved with JUVÉDERM can last up to a year.
Injectable treatments at the Chelmsford, Massachusetts Center for Plastic Surgery make it easier than ever to achieve dramatically smoother, younger-looking skin. Set up an appointment today to find out whether BOTOX cosmetic, injectable fillers, or any of our other skin treatments are right for you.
Juvéderm VOLLURE XC is now the first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds) that lasts up to 18 months in people over the age of 21. Dr. Eliopoulos loves VOLLURE because it has a smooth and silky consistency, which gives a nice, soft, natural correction around the mouth and other facial lines. This filler is developed with Vycross technology, just like Voluma and Volbella, to give long lasting results. VOLLURE is a great addition to our Juvederm family of fillers, and Dr. Eliopoulos and our Nurse Injectors will help assess and decide if you are a great candidate for this versatile facial filler.
Do you have very fine, very superficial wrinkles or creases in the skin that are, none the less, very bothersome to you? Maybe you have some of those pesky vertical lip lines or lines in the lower cheek and around the mouth for example or some wrinkling of the pink of your lips.
Here at the Center for Plastic Surgery we have a great way to target these lines very effectively. Volbella is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has some unique properties which allows Dr. Eliopoulos to more effectively target these superficial lines. This dermal filler is a soft, cohesive gel that quickly integrates into the skin and can be used to treat a wide range of facial wrinkles.
Unlike other some of our more volumizing injectable fillers like Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus, and Radiesse which can more aggressively “volumize” an area, Volbella is used more as a “fine line” filler rather than a “true volumizer”. Dr. Eliopoulos often uses the following analogy… If you were going to repair a “dent in a car” you might use Juvederm or Radiesse. But if you then wanted to “fix the scratches” in the paint, you would use Volbella.
Sometimes to get the best correction, Dr Eliopoulos and her Nurse Injectors may layer one filler on top of the other. For example, they might first treat an area more deeply with Juvederm or Radiesse to volumize a deeper fold, and then, layer Volbella or even Vollure on top for the fine work or finishing touches. We are pleased to have these multiple fillers, each with their own unique properties, to help achieve even better correction in patients interested in facial rejuvenation. A personal consultation with Dr. Eliopoulos or her Nurse Injectors is the best way to learn what combination of fillers will work the best for you to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Radiesse is made of calcium-hydroxylapatite microspheres, the same mineral composition that is found in bones and teeth. In addition to treating wrinkles and plumping hollowed cheek areas, these microspheres actually serve as a scaffold to support and stimulate the regrowth of your skin’s own collagen. The rejuvenating effects of Radiesse are visible immediately, and can last 10 to 14 months.
