Dr. Alexander believes in the philosophy that “less is more” in cosmetic surgery and in the use of BOTOX Cosmetic® and injectable fillers. Along with his superior knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy and the interplay of various muscles of the face, the greatest advantage in seeing Dr. Alexander for your injectable needs is that he has a global approach to facial analysis. He doesn’t just chase after lines or wrinkles; he performs a comprehensive, holistic analysis of your entire face, and educates you on the best options to improve your overall appearance.
BOTOX injections are one of the most commonly-performed treatments in aesthetics, and many patients rely on BOTOX to keep the face looking young and attractive. BOTOX Cosmetic® was approved by the FDA for facial treatment in 2002 and has an impressive safety record. If you are considering BOTOX treatments, you need not have concerns; it has proven to be a safe, effective treatment, and requires only a few minutes to perform.
BOTOX works differently than a dermal filler, as rather than filling in lines and wrinkles, it limits the muscle motions creating facial wrinkles, lines, or creases. The remarkable smoothing effect of BOTOX can help you maintain a more youthful facial appearance. The formula requires a few days to do its work, so you need a little patience. You will soon see your face looking smooth, refreshed, and younger.
The difference between a good and a great injector can be significant in final appearance. What makes Dr. Alexander a master at BOTOX injections is his extensive understanding of facial muscular structure and where to inject the product, and in what quantity to produce a very natural outcome. Dr. Alexander simply can help you avoid the “frozen-face” look. He injects the BOTOX Cosmetic® for a subtle softening and smoothing for a fresh, natural look.

Juvederm and voluma
Juvederm and Voluma are both dermal fillers with an impressive record for patient health and safety, and for creating very smooth, natural results. If you have lost facial volume at temples or cheeks, your look can be enhanced by restoring lost volume with these fillers. Our goal is not to drastically alter your facial appearance, but to restore a younger, fresher appearance that looks like YOU.
A relatively new and exciting product in the Juvéderm family, produced by Allergan, was developed with the company’s long-established, safe technology. As a dermal filler, Volbella is the perfect filler for lips and lip lines. It is very soft and subtle and can bring an appealing volume to aging or thinner lips. This product is one of the most effective for lip augmentation, as even in small quantities, when injected by our expert injector creates a subtle fullness and definition to your lips. The main advantages of facial fillers are:
- Immediate results
- No incisions
- No downtime
Each filler has a specific length of time before retreatment is necessary. Some factors impacting the length of time before your next treatment include the location on your face, as very active facial areas will shed the filler more quickly. When injected into the cheeks or to smooth deep tear troughs under the eyes, dermal fillers often last nine to twelve months. When injected into smile lines, fillers typically last six to nine months. For lip augmentation, you may need another treatment in about four to six months.
Dr. Alexander goes above and beyond to ensure your treatment experience is as pain-free as possible, and his meticulous injection technique is less likely to produce extensive bruising or swelling.
“Liquid rhinoplasty,” or “non-surgical rhinoplasty” can produce dramatic improvements for certain patients. This procedure includes the use of neuromodulators (BOTOX), along with injectable fillers. Dr. Alexander can enhance the appearance of your nose with careful, tiny injections to smooth the appearance of hump on the bridge and other flaws.
This treatment involves minimal discomfort, and no recovery time – you can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. Dr. Alexander has mastered this innovative nonsurgical technique to straighten a crooked nose, add volume to a flattened bridge, camouflage a hump on the nose bridge, or resolve issues with the nasal tip to create a very natural, youthful, harmonious look to your nose.
Unlike many injectors who are not plastic surgeons with extensive experience in rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Alexander is a skilled nasal surgeon with a deep understanding of nose structure, and how it can be improved without the need to undergo surgery.
For the early signs of aging skin, Dr. Alexander may advise you to undergo a combination of non-surgical treatments, including BOTOX, dermal fillers, and skin enhancing treatments to counteract aging. With careful planning and meticulous execution, based on his deep understanding of facial anatomy, Dr. Alexander has the skill to place fillers and BOTOX in precisely the right locations create balance, harmony, and a fresh, youthful look. In a comprehensive skin enhancement program, Dr. Alexander can help you achieve a rejuvenated, younger look that brings you compliments – as the results appear natural and fresh – not “worked-on.”
Dr. Alexander’s is guided by his focus on creating very natural outcomes with a conservative approach to lip augmentation. The goal is not to leave you looking drastically different but to create greater facial harmony by enhancing lip size, shape, or bringing back a youthful definition to your mouth.
Dr. Alexander uses advanced injection techniques and safe dermal fillers to create a subtle and beautiful lip enhancement. If you struggle with lip lines, these can be addressed for a smoother, fresher, more appealing ook. Your treatment may include both fillers and BOTOX injections to achieve the perfect enhancement.
Every patient is different, and for some, rather than adding volume with dermal fillers, a more appropriate technique may be a surgical lip lift, performed with an almost imperceptible incision beneath the nose that serves to elevate the upper lip to a natural and aesthetically-pleasing position.
