Injectables (such as Botox, Juvederm, Kybella, Restylane, Voluma, and more)
To assist in aging gracefully, and to avoid facial wrinkles and lines from occurring on the top portion of the face, Max Adler Dermatology is pleased to offer BOTOX to area individuals. This injectable treatment offers outstanding results and is very common among both men and women. This injectable can make a significant improvement to still lines, which are made from expressive movement from the contracting muscles on the forehead and around the eyes. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic folds can still remain. The muscle relaxer, BOTOX, is a clean and purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these static wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected, which smooths the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly positioned between the eyebrows, around the eyes (Crow’s feet), and across the forehead. Call Max Adler Dermatology in Dallas and Plano, TX to learn more.
BOTOX injections are great for patients who desire to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their upper face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a prevention anti-aging treatment, even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It’s a terrific noninvasive treatment if you are frustrated by forehead wrinkles or parallel lines between the brows. It is also a solution for the area of lines around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable.
BOTOX treatments are available as an outpatient procedure conveniently in our Dallas and Plano, TX office. If it is your first time visiting our office for BOTOX, we typically perform the BOTOX treatment on the same day as your initial consultation. You will be asked to make several expressions with your upper face, like squinting/smiling, frowning, etc., to help us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The treatment area will be prepared and the BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle. Patients may ask for an ice pack or numbing cream to help make their treatment more comfortable, but this usually is unnecessary. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, then patients are able to resume their usual routine as soon as they feel able.
What To Expect
Following the procedure, patients will be free to return to their regular routine, although strenuous activity should be skipped for a minimum of one day. Patients are also advised to sleep with their head elevated for at least a night and avoid touching their face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days following the procedure, although most patients should not develop any lasting or serious side effects from injectable treatments. In many patients, it typically takes around one week before optimum results can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. Our patients who receive BOTOX for their first visit are often very pleased with their results and usually return every couple of months for a touch-up.
Smile Without Worry
Stop worrying! You can frown, laugh, smile, and make any face you want without creating unsightly facial lines thanks to BOTOX wrinkle relaxer treatments. To prevent and smooth dynamic wrinkles across the face, our office invites you to schedule an appointment to hear more about this popular nonsurgical treatment.
Juvederm (Voluma, Vollure, Volbella)
Correct the effects of aging with the Juvéderm family of injectable dermal fillers. From treating wrinkles and fine lines to creating lips that are plump and full, Juvéderm injectable wrinkle treatments at Max Adler Dermatology in Dallas and Plano, TX provide attractive results that look natural. Juvéderm fillers may be performed with only one formula, multiple formulas, or along with other noninvasive procedures to achieve your desired goals. Juvéderm treatments are formulated with synthetic HA (hyaluronic acid) that is meant to boost the body’s natural levels of collagen and HA for healthy, supple skin. Talk to one of our physicians about refreshing your face with the Juvéderm collection of injectable dermal fillers to avoid the time and expense of cosmetic surgery.
- Juvéderm XC – Juvéderm XC has a gel consistency that works beautifully on your moderate to severe folds in the nasolabial area and facial wrinkles.
- Juvéderm Ultra & Ultra Plus – For 12 months, Juvéderm Ultra & Ultra Plus injections can augment your lips and perioral area.
- Volbella – Volbella is a popular injectable used to augment the lips and smooth the wrinkles in the area around the mouth.
- Vollure – Vollure can be injected in your moderate to severe parentheses lines, smoothing the area around the mouth and nose for needed volume for about 18 months.
The best patients for Juvéderm injectable dermal fillers are women and men who have facial wrinkles and lines they would like to improve. Juvéderm may also be beneficial if you have age-related volume loss or naturally thin cheeks or lips. Juvéderm wrinkle filler injections are fantastic if you are looking to refresh the appearance of your face while avoiding the expense and recovery time of plastic surgery (facelift, eyelid lift, brow lift, or facial implants).
Juvéderm treatments generally take about 15 – 30 minutes to perform. At the beginning of your procedure, your skin will be cleansed and the injection sites will be carefully marked. To decrease discomfort throughout the procedure, Juvéderm formulas contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine). Following your procedure, you may continue your normal day; however, strenuous activity such as exercise should be skipped for at least 1 day. You need to be cautious to not feel your face immediately after your Juvéderm injections to prevent pushing the gel into unwanted areas.
What To Expect
Patients usually have a visible enhancement following their Juvéderm injection but they can also have light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of their face for about 7 – 10 days. The improvements of Juvéderm treatments typically can be seen for as long as a year in many patients. However, some patients have noticed that their improvements tend to last longer than a year after 2 – 3 years of injections. Talk to your Max Adler Dermatology skin care provider about how soon to schedule your next injection session to sustain your results.

Kybella (Nonsurgical Neck Reduction Injections)
Even a small amount of excess fat in the upper neck area may create the presence of a “double chin” that is unwanted to both women and men. The extra pockets of fat beneath the chin (aka the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawbone and chin for an undefined profile. We are pleased to provide a revolutionary method to eliminate neck fat at Max Adler Dermatology in Dallas and Plano, TX. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical procedure for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly like the body’s natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. Once it’s injected into the fat below the chin, you can see a visible decrease in the volume of fat. After the fat cells are eliminated, they do not re-form, so you can enjoy your new, slimmer neck and clear jawline.
Ideal candidates for Kybella treatments have additional fat in the upper neck (submental area), which creates an unwanted fullness or a double chin appearance. The unique formula of Kybella specifically targets resistant sections of fat that can’t be minimized with the usual weight loss methods. If you are at or near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not worked to remove the fat in your neck, Kybella may be the best procedure for your needs. While Kybella may treat small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may be better treated with surgical liposuction.
At the beginning of your Kybella treatment, your skin will be cleansed and a numbing cream will be applied to the desired area, if preferred. The procedure usually takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes multiple small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may need a single treatment to achieve their desired goal, while other patients may require several injections spaced 3 – 4 weeks between each appointment.
What To Expect
Since Kybella doesn’t need general anesthesia, patients can leave our office when they are ready to return to their usual routine. Patients may experience short-term swelling, numbness, or bruising beneath the chin; however, this shouldn’t last more than 2 – 3 days. Contact Max Adler Dermatology right away if you are feeling any unusual symptoms like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat eliminated by Kybella cannot regenerate, the fat cells that remain can get larger, so patients must keep a stable weight after their Kybella treatments to avoid new pockets of fat from developing. The results after this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and slimmer.

Restylane (Refyne, Defyne, Silk, Lyft Injectable Wrinkle Reducers)
Our Dallas and Plano, TX dermatology offices performs a wide range of dermal filler injections to help correct signs of aging, including lost volume, wrinkles, and fine lines. Restylane is a popular brand of injectable dermal fillers since it treats many issues with specialized formulas for results that last. Restylane uses a synthetic version of the body’s natural HA (hyaluronic acid) that provides your face with a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and more supple. A personal Restylane dermal filler plan can correct mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines, in addition to adding fullness to the cheeks and or lips. Max adler Dermatology carries many Restylane injectables, including:
- Restylane: Corrects facial folds and wrinkles
- Restylane Defyne: Treats moderate to severe laugh lines and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Creates lift and volume in the mid-face
- Restylane Refyne: Treats light to moderate laugh lines and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Silk: Creates fullness in the lips and corrects vertical lines on the lips
Restylane dermal fillers are suitable for any person older than 21 years old who would like to refresh their overall appearance. Since Restylane has several formulas, your treatment plan will be personalized to meet your needs and concerns. Restylane may help you address initial signs of aging, such as fine facial lines, or if you would like to increase the fullness in your cheeks and lips. Restylane may also help to improve severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow’s feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Certain Restylane treatments have local anesthetic (lidocaine) as an ingredient to make the treatment more comfortable. If you have any known allergies to lidocaine, you need to disclose this information to your provider during your initial consult to avoid a negative reaction.
All Restylane treatments are performed in our Max Adler Dermatology office. While several Restylane treatments contain the local anesthetic lidocaine, a numbing cream may be put on the treatment area for greater comfort, if desired. The filler is injected in the skin with a fine-gauge needle and then massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to reduce inflammation. Every Restylane filler is injected with the same technique, but with different areas treated based on your unique concerns and cosmetic goals.
What To Expect
Once your Restylane treatment is finished, you may resume your normal activities. Your recovery period will vary based on what you are having treated, so ask your injector about what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red but this typically subsides within a day. Bruising may occur in treated areas but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It’s suggested that you avoid strenuous activity for a day and you should sleep with your head propped up for at least one night. Many patients will see visible changes right after the procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until optimum results develop. Restylane treatments may typically last around one year; however, this will vary based on the formula selected.
