With injectables from The Aesthetic Group, you can age on your own terms.
We all age at different rates, however the aging process is something we all share. Wrinkles and lines begin forming and certain parts of the face start to lose volume–some faster than others. Statistics show a veritable revolution in the number of women (and men) seeking facial rejuvenation through injectables. What products are part of an anti-aging strategy?
Fillers and injectables demand not only a thorough knowledge of anatomy, but a true sense of artistry. Get in touch with Cindy Nickel today to see how we can start your facial rejuvenation.
Botox treatment is the most widely used non-surgical procedure in the United States. It can smooth facial wrinkles making crow’s feet, worry lines and laugh lines a thing of the past.
Over time muscles lose their elasticity and some muscles have trouble fully relaxing to their original state of rest. When facial muscles stay contracted they wrinkle the skin. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines and all are treatable with this procedure.
Botox is placed into tiny facial muscles that create wrinkles. Therefore, allowing the muscles to relax and give your face a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Botox is the most widely known injectable used for this purpose. Ask us about our specials and which injectable is right for you. Scroll down the page to find frequently asked questions about Botox Cosmetic, its safety, and uses.

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution (generally a salt solution) directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view.
What is UPNEEQ?
UPNEEQ® (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution), 0.1% is a prescription eyedrop used to treat acquired blepharoptosis (low-lying lids) in adults.
What warnings and precautions are associated with UPNEEQ?
- Low-lying lids may be related to conditions such as stroke and/or brain aneurysm, Horner syndrome, myasthenia gravis, loss of the ability to move eye muscles, eye infection and eye tumors.
- UPNEEQ is a type of medication that may affect your blood pressure. If you have heart disease, uncontrolled high or low blood pressure, or feel faint at rest or when quickly standing up, you should call your doctor if your symptoms get worse.
- Patients with reduced blood flow to the brain or heart, or patients who experience eye or mouth dryness due to an immune system disorder (Sjögren’s syndrome), should use care when taking UPNEEQ.
- UPNEEQ may increase the risk of eye pressure due to fluid buildup (angle-closure glaucoma) in patients with untreated narrow-angle glaucoma.
- Do not let the tip of the UPNEEQ vial touch your eye or any other surface. This can help prevent eye injury or contamination. Each UPNEEQ vial is for one-time use and should be discarded after being used.
What are the most common side effects of UPNEEQ?
The most common adverse reactions with UPNEEQ (occurring in 1-5% of patients) were eye inflammation, eye redness, dry eye, blurred vision, eye pain at time of use, eye irritation, and headache.
What is DAXXIFY™ and how is it different?
DAXXIFY™ is FDA approved to help smooth moderate to severe lines between the brows. It is the only long-lasting frown line treatment powered by a peptide with results that last on average 6 months and up to 9 months for some.* Conventional injectables last 3 – 4 months and require up to 4 treatments a year to maintain results.
Nearly 90% of patients say they wish results lasted longer. With DAXXIFY™ you can keep your frown lines smoother for a full year with as few as 2 treatments.*
Why are peptides important?
All frown line treatments require a special ingredient to stabilize botulinum toxin A, the protein responsible for helping smooth moderate to severe frown lines. For instance, BOTOX® Cosmetic uses human serum albumin (HSA), a blood product, as its stabilizer. Dysport®, another frown line treatment, uses HSA as a stabilizer and cow’s milk protein as a protectant. DAXXIFY™ is unique because it is the only formulation that uses a novel peptide as a stabilizer and does not contain human or animal byproducts.
Is DAXXIFY™ well studied?
DAXXIFY™ was studied in the largest-ever clinical study conducted for a frown line treatment and included more than 2,400 people across different ages and skin types. • There were no serious treatment-related side effects in clinical trials for DAXXIFY™ • The active ingredient in DAXXIFY™ is botulinum toxin type A, an ingredient that has been used in frown line treatments for more than 20 years • 96% of people treated with DAXXIFY™ were satisfied with their results†
