Dr. Gerut provides anti-aging treatments via several modalities, one of which is via injectables, such as Dysport®️ to relax facial wrinkles and injectable fillers (Restylane® is an example of a hyaluronic filler) to fill surface wrinkles, plump the lips, cheeks, and the backs of the hands.
Dysport®️ is the marketing name for abobotulinumtoxinA. Similar to Botox®, Xeomin and Jeaveau®️, Dysport®️ blocks the communication between muscles and nerves in order to stop those muscles from contracting, which is the cause of skin wrinkling.
Restylane® is a non-animal hyaluronic acid gel, similar to the hyaluronic acid found in your own skin. It was the first injectable hyaluronic acid approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. The Restylane® line of fillers represents both the original FDA-approved dermal filler, as well as several other area-specific versions, such as Restylane-Lyft, Restylane Contour, Restylane Defyne and Refyne.

Injecting fat as an alternative to dermal fillers has gained in popularity over the past decade, primarily due to its ability to last much longer than fillers.
Liquid rhinoplasty uses a dermal filler, such as Bellefill®, to provide our patients with an alternative to a surgical rhinoplasty.
There are two options for lip plumping: the injection of fillers, which is temporary, and the insertion of silastic implants, which is permanent.
