Injectables – JUVÉDERM™, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and More
For many people, the expense and downtime associated with cosmetic surgery make convenient non-surgical rejuvenation treatments a better alternative. Among the most popular such treatments are the dermal injectables. At Eastside Dermatology & Skin Care Center, with locations in Columbus and Hilliard, Ohio, we offer JUVÉDERM™, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and other injectables to give our patients a safe, convenient alternative to facial plastic surgery. These products offer immediate, long-lasting benefits to almost any patient.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein used to temporarily reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. The fine muscles that control facial expressions tighten frequently during the day, and over time this process leaves creases and wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes and mouth, and elsewhere on the face as the muscles become locked into habitual expressions.
Administering small doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic directly to these muscles with a tiny needle allows them to relax, temporarily reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and giving the face a smooth, refreshed appearance that lasts for months.
BOTOX® injections are among the most convenient cosmetic treatments available. The procedure itself takes approximately 15 minutes, and most patients can return to their daily activities immediately after treatment. There is almost no risk of allergic reaction, and the benefits of treatment last up to six months. In addition, patients who undergo regular BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments often find that their benefits last longer over time.

Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers are designed to physically fill wrinkles and depressions in the face. As the body absorbs them, most modern fillers offer secondary benefits for longer-lasting results.
JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is one of the newest FDA-approved injectable products for treating both fine lines and deep wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and under the eyes. JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel contains hyaluronic acid. The extra hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel supplements the body’s natural supply, adding volume and moisture to the skin to make it appear significantly plumper and healthier with fewer wrinkles. No allergy testing is required prior to treatment, and the benefits last up to a year in many patients.
At Eastside Dermatology, serving central Ohio from locations in Hilliard and Columbus, our physicians administer JUVÉDERM™ in small, precise injections, carefully adding volume to areas of the skin that show sagging, wrinkles, and laxity. The entire treatment process takes less than an hour, and the benefits are visible immediately. Some patients experience minor swelling or redness, but these side effects fade quickly to reveal the full effects of the procedure.
The next generation in long-lasting wrinkle correction, Radiesse® is a convenient FDA-approved treatment that fills and corrects deep lines around the nose and mouth, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and smile lines. Radiesse® works with your body below the skin’s surface.
Radiesse® does more than temporarily fill in facial folds and wrinkles – it rebuilds your skin’s foundation and restores your youthful look with fewer risks than any surgical alternative. The unique calcium-based microspheres that make up Radiesse® form a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of natural collagen in the skin. As a result, the benefits of Radiesse® frequently last up to two years.
