Facial wrinkles, fine lines, and other visible signs of aging have long been an unavoidable reality. Now, cosmetic injectables allow the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay to provide new forms of non-surgical facial rejuvenation and wrinkle treatment. Dr. Jeffrey A. Hunt offers a range of cosmetic injections and dermal fillers that increase volume, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin’s overall contour. Arrange a consultation at our Tampa, Florida office for more information about BOTOX® Cosmetic, Juvéderm™, Radiesse®, Sculptra™, ArteFill®, Belotero or any of our other injectable treatments.
Recently approved by the FDA, Juvéderm™ is a cosmetic dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. Juvéderm™ injectable filler may be a good option for patients who wish to diminish deep folds or creases in the face, or who would like to augment their lips. For even more dramatic effect, many patients choose to combine Juvéderm™ filler with BOTOX® Cosmetic. While BOTOX® Cosmetic paralyzes underlying muscles to achieve a wrinkle-free appearance, Juvéderm™ fills them in.
Dr. Hunt uses Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel. Initially said to last 6 to 9 months, an extension of up to one year was recently approved by the FDA based on new clinical data. The Juvéderm™ injection process takes only about 15 minutes and the results are immediate. Plus, recovery is easy and there is no downtime.

Radiesse® is ideal for the treatment of lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. These lines are typically above the mouth, running from the nose to the corners of the upper lip (nasolabial folds), or pointing down from the corner of the mouth towards the chin (marionette lines). Radiesse® is also FDA-approved for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss (facial lipoatrophy). Radiesse® works with your body, below the skin’s surface, to stimulate the production of collagen and encourage tissue regeneration. It does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles – it rebuilds your skin’s foundation. Radiesse® provides patients with both immediate and long-lasting results.

Sculptra™ is an injectable filler that reduces facial lines and wrinkles and restores lost volume. Used for the treatment of facial lipoatrophy (or facial fat loss), Sculptra™ causes a gradual increase in skin thickness. Although the results of Sculptra™ treatment may take four to six weeks to become noticeable, they are long lasting. The Sculptra™ patient may return home minutes after the procedure.
Clinical studies have shown that the enhancing effects of Sculptra™ can last up to two years. Results gradually become evident over the course of a few weeks. Since Sculptra™’s results are temporary (up to two years), treatments have to be repeated in future years to maintain the benefit. Touch-up treatments may be required up to six times every six weeks to achieve an optimal result. For more information about Sculptra™ or any of our other cosmetic fillers, contact the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hunt.
For those desiring enduring beauty, we offer the first and only FDA-approved permanent filler for facial wrinkles and folds. Also available at our Tampa, Florida office, ArteFill® is an excellent treatment option for patients who wish to reduce the appearance of the deep lines that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth, also known as nasolabial folds. ArteFill® offers both immediate and long-lasting results; not only does it act as a dermal filler, but its microspheres stimulate the body to produce its own collagen.
Studies have shown that patients who received an ArteFill® injection showed an improvement in the nasolabial folds five years after treatment. Collagen or fat injections, however, typically last only a few months since the enzymes of the injections begin to break down soon after treatment. If you would like permanent results and would like to know more about ArteFill®, contact Dr. Jeffrey A. Hunt for a consultation.
FDA-Approved Belotero Balance® is a new injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler available at the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay that adapts to each patient’s skin for an individualized treatment. The product binds to water found naturally in the skin, filling in wrinkles and folds for immediate and smooth correction. Belotero Balance® is unique in that it is strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (also known as smile lines), yet gentle enough to treat more delicate areas – including vertical lip lines – that cannot be treated with other similar products.
Belotero Balance® can be an excellent compliment to Juvéderm® XC for lip augmentations, improving the resulting softness. Once injected, it instantly plumps the skin, smoothing fine vertical lip lines, enhancing your perfect pout.

Are your lips unevenly shaped, too thin or just not the way you would love them to look? Juvéderm™ cannot only be very effective in filling in deep lines and wrinkles, but it can also provide you with fuller lips that look more youthful and contoured. During lip augmentation, an ultra-fine needle containing the Juvéderm™ solution is injected into the lips to add volume and a more defined contour. A topical numbing agent is applied prior to treatment to keep you comfortable during your lip transformation. The treatment takes no longer than 15-20 minutes. Some swelling is normal immediately after but fades away within a few days leaving you with the perfect shape and size to your lips. With Juvéderm™ for lip enhancement, results can last from six months to a year or more, and can be maintained with follow-up treatment.
Lip augmentation can do wonders for the entire look of your face, plumping the lips for a fuller, more sensual appearance and confident smile.
Many of our patients are concerned about the signs of aging showing up in their hands. Whether it be enlarged veins, discoloration, or worn-out looking skin, the normal aging process, thinning skin and sun exposure all take a toll on our hands rather quickly. However, thanks to cosmetic fillers such as Radiesse® and Sculptra™, we are easily able to:
- plump up hand volume to minimize laxity
- improve texture
- increase smoothness
- and minimize appearance of hand veins
