As we age, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish. Over time wrinkles and folds form. Dermal fillers and injectables help to restore volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like “smile line” and “parentheses”–the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
Many of our patients choose injectable filler treatments to address these problem areas. Safe and effective, these treatment options are among the fastest-growing nonsurgical aesthetic procedures in the United States.
We offer the following filler options:
JUVÉDERM™, a “next-generation” dermal filler, is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. The injection process usually takes around 15 minutes and the results are immediate. No allergy skin test is required beforehand and there is virtually no recuperation time. Many of our clients with daytime appointments resume their normal activities immediately following the treatment. JUVÉDERM™ treatments are usually repeated every six to nine months.
Fat Wrinkle Fillers
Your own fat can be used as a filler to “plump” lips, fill out fine lip lines and treat the deep creases that run from the nose to the corners of your mouth. While each filler has a unique set of properties, fat has the distinct advantage of being harvested from the patient and so eliminating the possibility of an allergic reaction.
