Injectables and Fillers
DGMD offers a wide array of injectables and fillers to help our clients achieve the look they desire. Dr. Gross and his team will talk with you about how you can utilize these amazing treatments to maximize their effects for your skin. These treatments include Botox®, Juvederm®, and Kybella®.
What is Botox and how does it work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by decreasing muscle activity. Shortly after receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic you will notice a visible difference in the treated area.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is not just for women. DGMD treats men as well!
What is Juvederm and how does it work?
JUVÉDERM® is a hyaluronic acid, or HA, which is a natural substance found in the body that gives volume to the skin. Being treated with JUVÉDERM® helps add volume to different areas of the face, including cheeks, lips and fine lines.
DGMD offers JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® .
What is Kybella and how does it work?
KYBELLA® is used to treat moderate to severe fat below the chin (also known as a double chin).
KYBELLA® is administered as a series of injections to the treatment area under the chin, destroying fat cells and producing gradual results. Every client’s chin profile is different, Dr. Gross and his team will tailor the treatment to you. Depending on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals, the number of treatments will vary.
Each treatment DGMD offers has different lengths of effectiveness.
Botox: Botox typically lasts between three and six months.
Juvederm: Juvederm has a much longer lifespan than botox lasting up to two years
Restylane: Restylane treatments can last between six and nine months; however, lip treatments typically last between three and four months.
Kybella: Kybella treatments last for years
As we age, our skin changes. It can become thinner, less plump and less smooth as it once did. We typically see facial aging beginning in your 20’s – when skin firmness begins to decrease due to internal (genetics and natural aging) and external (sun exposure, smoking, stress, etc) factors.1
Hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity), collagen and elastin diminish as we age. This causes your skin to lose volume and increases the chance for wrinkles and folds to appear.

Typical side effects of all injectibles and fillers include swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation and itching at the injection site. These side effects are typically mild in severity and normally last less than seven days.
