Cosmetic Injectables

injectables3The variety of cosmetic injectables offered at Kurkjian Aesthetics can enhance your facial features with highly natural-looking results. Through our advanced formulas and precise injection techniques, patients have non-surgical options for lifting the eyebrows and corners of the mouth, smoothing deep creases and folds, rejuvenating the hands, altering the shape of the nose, erasing fine lines and wrinkles, and more. 

All injectable treatment plans are overseen by our board-certified Fort Worth plastic surgeon, Jon Kurkjian, MD. He and his team of experienced providers provide highly personalized care with the goal of helping each patient achieve their aesthetic goals and achieve a boost in self-confidence. Our extensively trained nurse injector, Heather Koplin, RN, BSN, will work closely with you to determine the most beneficial injectables for your needs. In addition, our team offers a full complement of skin care and minimally invasive plastic surgery techniques to ensure your custom treatment plan effectively meets your needs and budget.

Neurotoxins vs. Dermal Fillers

Our innovative injectable products can be divided into two categories: neurotoxins and soft-tissue fillers. Each type of injectable can provide beautiful, rejuvenating results, but they work in different ways.

Neurotoxins include products such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®. These products are used to relax various muscles of the face in order to prevent wrinkles and lines that become more obvious with facial expression. These neurotoxins, also referred to as neuromodulators, are a great option for men and women 30 years and older who are hoping to prevent those “dynamic” wrinkles from progressing to “static” wrinkles, which are present even when totally relaxed.

Soft-tissue fillers include products such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Sculptra® and many others. These products are made from various materials, but all act to fill in areas of the face that lack volume. Each product is used differently to fill in wrinkles, folds, and even fine lines. These injectables are better suited to address the “static” wrinkles that are present even when the face is totally relaxed. Men and women 30 years and older who have unwanted deflation or facial lines and wrinkles are typically good candidates for soft-tissue fillers.

At the time of your consultation, our team will provide for you the FDA-approved indications for the recommended products, and explain the pros and cons of your options.


Neurotoxins are a non-surgical facial treatment that involve injections of small units of a selected treatment into the desired facial muscles. This injection blocks the transmission of nerve impulses into the muscles, thus relaxing the muscles by preventing contraction. This mechanism helps prevent smile and frown lines which eventually form wrinkles. In general, neurotoxins can provide the following benefits:

  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminished smile lines or “crow’s feet” that are seen on the outer portion of the eyes
  • Smoothed frown lines or “bunny lines” often found between the eyebrows

During your consultation, our nurse injector will analyze your facial anatomy and help you determine the areas that would best be treated with our selection of neurotoxins.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic can provide remarkable results for minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some of the most common areas treated with BOTOX® injections include crow’s feet, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and forehead lines.


Designed to smooth frown lines between the eyebrows, Dysport® may also be used to treat other wrinkles such as marionette lines. Due to its specific formulation, the effects of Dysport® may be able to last up to five months.

Soft-Tissue Fillers

There are many types of semi-permanent and permanent wrinkle fillers that can be directly injected into specific areas where volume is needed. Soft-tissue fillers are a key part of our non-invasive approach at our practice, and they can be used to:

  • Soften facial folds and creases
  • Reduce wrinkles and facial lines
  • Augment thinner lips
  • Enhance volume in the malar area (cheeks)
  • Shape the jawline
  • Improve the appearance of depressed scars
  • Correct loss of facial volume in the temple area
  • Correct tear troughs (grooves below the lower eyelid)

Dr. Kurkjian may recommend filler injections in conjunction with other skin care treatments to enhance your overall outcome. To learn more about our versatile soft-tissue filler options, please browse through the sections below:


As a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, Restylane® is a versatile option that may be used on many areas of the face to restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours.


The Juvéderm® family of fillers is expertly formulated to add volume in the cheeks and lips and reduce signs of facial aging. The hyaluronic acid composition can help correct marionette lines and nasolabial folds with hydrated, natural-looking results.


The RHA® Collection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are designed to adjust to facial movements while providing soft, natural volume and smoothing deeper dynamic wrinkles and folds.

Revanesse® Versa™+

Revanesse® Versa™+ is another hyaluronic acid-based formula that can be ideal for smoothing the corners of the mouth, chin creases, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines with the potential for reduced swelling.


In addition to replenishing volume in the face and hands, Radiesse® can stimulate the skin’s collagen production from its composition of calcium hydroxyapatite gel microspheres.


Sculptra® is a poly-L-lactic acid-based injectable that deeply penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen for smoother, voluminous results that can last for up to two years.

Liquid Rhinoplasty

Utilizing a customized combination of dermal fillers, a liquid rhinoplasty can improve the shape and overall appearance of the nose without the need for surgery or extended downtime.
