Non-surgical treatments like Botox® Cosmetic and injectable wrinkle fillers have become popular short-term alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Through one of these treatments, you can achieve a noticeable correction of age-related wrinkles, lines and other imperfections.
Dr. Howrigan can recommend the best product or combination of injectable products to provide the improvement you desire. Although many physicians in the Boston area may offer these procedures, you should always seek out a doctor with the best training and experience. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Howrigan has the qualifications to provide you with a safe and predictable treatment.
Botox® is an injectable product made with the botulinum toxin. It is widely used for the temporary correction of frown lines, also known as glabellar lines, in patients 18 to 65 years of age. The glabella is a region of the forehead, residing slightly above and between the eyebrows. After years of muscle movement in this area, it is common for deep lines to appear on the brow. An injection of Botox® will relax the muscles that cause these lines to form, reducing the appearance of wrinkles for several months.
We frequently have great deals on Botox through rebates and promotions from Allergan, or our own specials. Be sure to check our specials page for more information about Botox specials in Boston.

Injectable fillers (also known as dermal fillers) can treat imperfections such as facial folds, hollow or sunken skin, thin lips and more. These products work by restoring volume in the skin, oftentimes using natural substances like hyaluronic acid or collagen.
Plastic surgeons now offer wrinkle fillers that achieve either short- or long-term correction. If you're new to these products, you may be interested in a filler like Juvederm or Restylane, which achieves results lasting 6 months to 1 year. For those who want enduring results, products such as Radiesse or Sculptra may be recommended.
