Why Facial Fillers?

Dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid are compatible with the body and easily assimilated into the tissues. We already have a high concentration of hyaluronic acid in the soft tissues, so injecting the filler into the tissue doesn’t produce any unwanted side effects or adverse reactions. The final result is smoother, plumper, and hydrated skin. We can restore volume loss in several facial compartments and work to plump up even delicate areas such as hollows around the eyes, the lips, and the cheek area.

What Types of Facial Fillers Are Right for Me?

We offer a range of fillers for wrinkle reduction and wrinkle prevention. Injectable gel fillers, such as Restylane and Perlane, can add volume and fullness to the face relatively quickly. Studies show that these fillers last longer than collagen injections. We have found that the results can last up to six months, and we can administer these fillers in several facial compartments or use them to perform a lip augmentation procedure. Perlane is especially effective for targeting deeper wrinkles.Radiesse is another popular facial filler, and is considered to be a next generation filler that produces long-lasting results. It is especially effective for treating the small lines around the nose and mouth. One of the key benefits of Radiesse is that it triggers collagen production so you will notice progressive results even when the filler compound starts to dissolve.We also offer Belotero Balance at our practice, a hyaluronic acid filler that hydrates the skin and plumps up very fine lines and skin depressions. Belotero can last for up to six to nine months with optimal treatment.The right filler for you will be determined by your goals and expectations.
