Dermal fillers are used to fill skin wrinkles, skin depressions, enhance tissue volume, or to plump up lips. Some dermal fillers are better adapted for use in particular locations and they have different durations. With the aging process, the face loses volume in a number of places, often leading to an older, more tired looking face. Non-surgical facial fillers (also called cosmetic dermal fillers) are used to smooth away lines and wrinkles, restore fullness to the lips, enhance the eyes and cheeks, and replace the natural looking volume to the face that has been lost over the years.
In order to effectively address your specific needs, we will choose from a variety of facial filler options, including Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, Radiesse®, Sculptra® Aesthetic, and Collagen. Each filler is designed to yield optimal results for particular areas of the face. During a pre-treatment consultation, we will help you decide which one can be used most effectively for your cosmetic goals.
ur injection treatment routine involves numerous steps to minimize discomfort and maximize results. We have a specially formulated topical numbing cream that is remarkable in its ability to anesthetize (numb) the skin prior to injections. Additionally, right before treatment, the skin is cleansed with alcohol and then cooling ice is applied to the injection site to further numb the area. In our practice, the typical patient experiences a rather painless and relaxed treatment process, with little to no bruising.
Facial fillers are best known for their ability to correct nasolabial folds and add volume and form to the lips. In addition to these more common uses, we also utilize facial fillers in many innovative ways to enhance the face, reverse aging signs, and produce natural looking results.
