Injectables have a lot to offer as the most common non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the country. These safe and effective substances can soften lines and wrinkles, enhance facial features, restore lost volume and reduce fat under the chin. A simple injection can produce remarkable, natural-looking results without the need for surgery.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Robinson offers a carefully curated selection of the most effective, in-demand injectables available today. With fast results, short treatments and no downtime, it’s never been easier to look your best.

Your facial muscles move when you smile, squint or form other expressions. As they move, they drag, tug and fold your skin against itself. When you’re young, your skin is elastic and effortlessly springs back into place. But as you age, you will notice lines and wrinkles forming across active areas of your face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic softens the lines, wrinkles and folds caused by repeated muscle movement. Made of a purified protein, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into targeted muscles to limit their activity and smooth the skin. Dr. Robinson can even administer BOTOX® Cosmetic as a preventative measure before lines and wrinkles have a chance to form.
Jeuveau works much like BOTOX® Cosmetic. The product relies on the same principle of using a purified protein to prevent muscle contractions and soften the appearance of wrinkles. The two non-surgical wrinkle relaxers are very similar, offering comparable results and longevity.
Dr. Robinson is excited to offer this brand-new BOTOX® Cosmetic alternative. He will help determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic or Jeauveau is right for you.
Juvéderm fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency designed to add volume when injected below the surface of the skin. They are ideal for filling in hollow areas of the face, lifting the skin and smoothing away wrinkles. Juvéderm products can also provide non-surgical lip augmentation.
Dr. Robinson offers several forms of Juvéderm, including:
- Juvéderm® XC
- Juvéderm® Vollure XC
- Juvéderm® Voluma
- Juvéderm® Volbella
These fillers contain hyaluronic acid, or HA. HA is naturally present in the skin, where it is responsible for a smooth, plump and youthful appearance.
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable double chin treatment. It works by selectively destroying unwanted fat cells beneath the chin to give you a sharper, better-contoured profile.
Kybella is made with a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, the substance in your body that helps to absorb fat. This product is designed to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also known as submental fat. Dr. Robinson will develop a customized treatment plan based on the distribution of your fat and your cosmetic goals.
