As a prominent cosmetic surgery provider, Dr. Eric Pugash offers both surgical and non-surgical procedures for the face. Non-surgical procedures are sought by patients who desire to extend the effect of surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, as well as by those who desire to refresh their facial appearance but do not want to pursue surgery. During your one-on-one consultation Dr. Pugash will listen to your aesthetic concerns and desires, and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan for you.
When you choose non-surgical procedures treatment is quick, comfortable and there is little or no downtime. New non-surgical treatments frequently appear in the field of cosmetic medicine. Please contact Dr. Pugash to find out about a product you do not see listed below.

BOTOX® COSMETIC® is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium and can be used to weaken muscles that produce undesirable facial expressions. This injectable treatment is most commonly used to weaken the muscles that create frown lines between the eyebrows. BOTOX® COSMETIC® treatment can also be used to diminish crow’s feet and forehead lines. The entire procedure can take as little as 15 minutes, and the results will last from 4 to 6 months.
Dysport® aesthetic also uses botulinum protein to weaken facial muscles that produce unwanted creases and expressions. It is commonly used to treat frown lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet. The results will usually last 4 to 6 months.
Xeomin® is another neuromodulator that is now available for treatment of upper facial aging, including frown and forehead lines as well as crow’s feet. Dr. Pugash will discuss with you its role as an alternative to BOTOX® COSMETIC® treatment.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid gel that is used to fill out lips, facial wrinkles and facial folds. Do not be misled by the word ‘acid’ – these products are clear, cool gels that do not damage the tissues when they are injected.
Perlane® is a slightly longer-lasting version of Restylane® and is used for lip enhancement and the correction of deep folds. Treatment often takes as little as 30 minutes, and the results will usually last 3 to 4 months.
SkinMedica has created a comprehensive line of skin care and conditioning products. They are very effective in cleansing, toning, rejuvenating and brightening the skin. They have also created a scar recovery gel which Dr. Pugash recommends to many of his patients following surgery.
Emervel is a hyaluronic acid filler, resembling the HA that is normally present in our skin. The Emervel range of fillers is tailored to the specific needs of the patient, such as softening wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose, restoring volume to the cheeks and lips, and contouring important facial features such as the cheek bones and chin. The results may last 6 to 12 months depending on the location and the specific product.
