Botox is a popular name-brand injectable that reduces fine lines on your face. The drug consists of a powerful neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that stops your muscles from receiving the nerve signals telling them to move. When Dr. Goodnight injects small amounts of the toxin into specific muscles under your skin, the drug makes slight cosmetic adjustments to your facial features. He uses Botox to treat:
Dr. Goodnight also offers Jeauveau®, also called Newtox, at Dr. Goodnight’s Everlasting Beauty. It’s the latest type of botulinum toxin injectable on the market and works in the same way as Botox, its predecessor. Unlike Botox, Newtox is designed specifically for cosmetic enhancements and is not used for other clinical applications, like migraine treatment.

Fillers are used to add artificial volume without removing fat from another part of your body, as with fat transfer. Using his expertise and artistic eye, Dr. Goodnight can use fillers to:
Dr. Goodnight uses the latest available fillers and uses blunt needles called cannulas to inject them. This allows for less swelling and bruising after your injections and short recovery time.
Your tissues absorb the fillers over time, so the results aren’t permanent. However, many fillers available today allow for results that last for a full year or longer.
When you come to Dr. Goodnight for cosmetic injectables like Botox or fillers, you start with an in-depth discussion with Dr. Goodnight about your needs. He helps you choose the right products to achieve your goals and makes sure you’re familiar with the process, the potential results, and any potential complications.
Dr. Goodnight may recommend using both Botox and fillers in your treatment to achieve a well-rounded look. He may also recommend other procedures in conjunction with your injectables, like an eyelid lift or skin resurfacing. He always aims for the most natural result possible and ensures that you won’t look unnatural or overdone after your procedure.
