Injectables Q & A

How do injectable wrinkle reducers work?

Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are injectable medications that contain purified botulinum toxin, and they all work similarly. These injectables block the nerve signals from reaching underlying facial muscles that contract when you make expressions, such as a smile or frown.

As a result, the muscles relax, which softens wrinkles and lines to smooth out your skin and help you achieve a more youthful look. You’ll still be able to make natural-looking facial expressions, but your look softens with the expert application by Dr. Heron.

Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are all manufactured slightly differently. Dysport results, for example, may last a little longer than Botox. Xeomin is a slightly purer formulation. All of these wrinkle reducers are best used for forehead lines, lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers plump up your skin and add structure to areas that are wrinkled or sunken due to aging. Dermal fillers contain ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, to increase your skin’s hydration and lift.

Dermal fillers can also help restore the effect that subcutaneous fat, which sits just under the skin, has on your appearance. As you get older, this fat recedes, leaving muscles closer to the surface of the skin, so wrinkles appear more distinct.

The dermal fillers offered at Heron Med Spa include:

  • Restylane-L®, Restylane Lyft®, and Restylane Silk®, Contour, Kysse, Defyne, Refyne and EyeLight: contains hyaluronic acid, which adds volume, defines the lips, and erases lines around the nose, mouth and hands.
  • Sculptra®: a poly-L-lactic acid collagen stimulator that works deep in your skin to revitalize production of collagen, a protein that adds structure and volume to your skin
  • Other products, such as BellaFill, VERSA & LIPS are available.

Dr Linda Myers evaluates your facial structure and aesthetic goals to determine which fillers are best for you.

What are buttocks injections?

Your face isn’t the only area that benefits from cosmetic injections. If you desire smooth, cellulite-free buttocks that are rounded and lifted, Sculptra injections are also an option.

The compound adds immediate volume following injection, and as Sculptra is absorbed it stimulates collagen production to improve your buttock’s shape and skin texture. Buttocks injections are a valid alternative to surgical butt enhancements without a long recovery or risk of infection.


Sculptra helps restore the skin’s foundation, resulting in firmer skin throughout the cheek, from the top of the cheek to the jawline.

90% of patients had an improved jawline contour 1 year after injection. Sculptra treatment when injected into the cheek region, with 86% of patients showing improved jawline contour 2 years after Sculptra treatment when injected into the cheek area.

My experience at Heron Med Spa was awesome. I look great & feel great. I'm still healing and a little sore. I do everything they told me to do. I worked the same day.

20 years ago I was referred to Dr. Heron for weight loss. I return every year to prevent gaining during holidays. If I am struggling with my weight I restart his program.


I had a laser session for scars with Barbara. The session was great - very knowledgeable. I look forward to going back.


I will definitely wear a bikini this summer. After two kids, I called Dr Heron. I only took pain medicine for three days and followed doctor's orders. My skin is tighter.
