Non-Surgical Procedures

While we do off many options for plastic surgery in Charleston, not everyone wants to undergo a surgical procedure. Therefore, we also offer an array of non-surgical, minimally-invasive treatments that can make you look and feel amazing. Our treatments include Botox, CoolSculpting, Juvéderm, Latisse, Fibroblasting and much more.

We always recommend that you undergo treatments such as Botox, Juvéderm, Coolsculpting and other non-surgical procedures in a plastic surgeon’s office, as this is the safest option and typically provides you with the best results.

The manufacturer of Botox and Juvéderm has named Thaxton Plastic Surgery as a Top 10 provider in West Virginia, so you can trust that our team can provide you with the best possible results for these procedures. Here’s a quick look at some of our most popular non-invasive procedures.

Botox & Micro Botox

Botox injections work by relaxing facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We offer Botox as well as micro or mini-Botox, depending on your needs. Botox has been a popular procedure for more than 30 years, and we always strive to provide you with the most natural look possible.


Cellfina® can be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite in the thighs and buttocks. This procedure takes about an hour and within just a few days, you should notice a reduction in cellulite, although the improvements continue to develop in the weeks and months after treatment.


If you have stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away, even with consistent diet and exercise, CoolSculpting can be a good option to consider. This procedure essentially freezes these stubborn fat cells, and they die off and are absorbed by the body. This results in a smoother, more sculpted look.


If you long for a more youthful look, but don’t want to undergo a facelift procedure, fibroblasting can be an option. This also is called a plasma pen treatment or plasma lift, and fibroblasting stimulates collagen production, which can tighten up the skin around the forehead, eyes, mouth, neck and even the underarms.


This is also known as fractional laser, and this procedure can be used to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This laser treatment also can reduce the appearance of scarring from acne as well as other types of scars. We also use this to remove dark spots on your hands as well as pre-cancerous patches on the skin, which are known as actinic keratosis.


If you’ve been reading about a “snatched jawline,” and would enjoy having a more defined jawline and a more youthful look overall, Juvéderm Volux can be a good option. This injective product can be used as a jawline filler, and we also can use Juvéderm Voluma XC for the cheeks and chin. We often combine this with a touch of Botox to provide you with what is known as a “liquid facelift.”

Morpheus 8

This is another skin-tightening treatment option, and like fibroblasting, this procedure is a type of collagen induction therapy. Rather than using a laser, with Morpheus8, we use a combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen production.


miraDry® is an FDA-approved treatment that eliminates sweat glands in the underarm area. If you are prone to excessive underarm sweat and odor, this can be upsetting and embarrassing, and miraDry® can be an easy, non-invasive way to fix this problem.

These are just a few of the many procedures that we can provide. We also offer ThermiTight, ThermiSmooth (Face & Body), ThermiVa, lip fillers and spa treatments such as facials, dermaplanning, microdermabrasion, Latisse and chemical peels.
