Dermal Fillers

Usually the first visible signs of aging begin with lines and wrinkles from repeated facial expressions, which may be temporarily diminished or even eliminated by the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic. As the aging process continues, our facial skin loses its moisture and natural support structures, such as collagen and elastin, which help keep skin supple and youthful; this eventually leads to skin creases and folds. At the same time, we also start to lose fat under our skin and gravity takes effect, creating dark under-eye circles and making our cheeks appear hollow and even flattened.

Hope is not lost, as soft tissue fillers can be injected directly into or beneath the skin to help soften the effects of aging by restoring facial volume. These fillers can bring new life to tired eyes, plump and lift the cheeks, contour the chin, reduce or even eliminate smile and marionette lines, and be injected into thin lips for added fullness. Soft tissue fillers can provide a smoother and more youthful look, with virtually no downtime or need for recovery. They can also be used as an adjunct to facial rejuvenation surgery.

Treatment takes about 30 minutes with instant results lasting anywhere between six months to several years (depending on which filler is used).

One week prior to your treatment with filler, avoid taking St. John's Wort, aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, e.g. Advil, and high doses of Vitamin E supplements. These agents may increase bleeding and bruising at the injection site.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is JUVÉDERM®? 

JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the U.S. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers adds volume to a different area of the face—without surgery. All JUVÉDERM® fillers are smooth, crystal-clear gels that are administered by injection in your aesthetic healthcare provider's office.

What is hyaluronic acid? 

The JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers is made from a modified form of HA.

What is the treatment experience like? 

Your provider will take your medical history and provide a facial analysis. Be prepared to discuss your areas of concern. This is not a surgical treatment. Actual treatment can take 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on which area of your face is being treated.

Does it hurt? 

The amount of discomfort depends on the sensitivity of the patient's skin. Sometimes a topical anesthetic is used to dull the pain or ice to help further minimize discomfort. JUVÉDERM® injectable gels labeled with "XC" contain pain-reducing lidocaine to help manage pain or discomfort during the injection.

When will I see results? 

You will see results immediately/instantly. 

How long do results last? 

Results may last one year to two years, with optimal treatment and depending on the formula used.

Sculptra®

The evolution of the wrinkle filler has led to an amazingly effective product called Sculptra®.  Sculptra® is not a wrinkle filler; it is a volumizer.  It is designed to replace the natural volume (fat) loss that occurs as we age -- the volume loss that is responsible for the appearance of age.  An older face has lost the fullness of the cheeks, lips and around the mouth, and fat loss under the eyes creates a hollow effect.  Where there used to be light, now there are shadows.  By replacing the volume loss, you can help to reverse the creation of shadow and help to restore a more youthful appearance. 

Sculptra® is a revolutionary product that works by stimulating your body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue. This helps to minimize lines and wrinkles by replacing lost volume and contours to help restore a fuller, more youthful appearance. 

Sculptra® achieves excellent results in treating all parts of the face, including the areas around the eyes and lips, between the mouth and nose and throughout the cheeks and neck.

Bellafill

Bellafill offers a new, innovative level of filler rejuvenation. What sets this product apart from other dermal fillers on the market today is that it is comprised of tiny collagen enhanced microspheres. The best feature of Bellafill is its long lasting effect. As with other fillers, the collagen is absorbed by your body over time. However, the microspheres remain, helping your skin to recreate its own firmer structure for more beautiful, younger-looking skin and longer lasting results. Studies show results can be seen for several years.  As with other collagen-based fillers, a skin test must be completed 28 days prior to treatment to assure no allergic reactions will occur.
