Dermal Fillers

As we age, both the skin and the shape of our face will change. When we are younger, collagen keeps the skin supple and smooth and the youthful volume of subcutaneous fat below the surface of the skin keeps our cheeks firm and perky. But as we age the fat becomes thinner in the face, the skin loses elasticity and becomes more lax, and the fat and skin sag and gives us that traditional older appearance with loss of volume, folds and wrinkles. The first place you may see this, even in some people in their early 30’s and 40’s is the midface. This is an ideal situation and time to restore volume in this area. If you are looking to restore fullness, Dermal fillers and volumizers are a great option. Fillers are injected into the facial tissues at different levels as needed to temporarily restore lost volume and reduce the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. They can give the appearance of a smoother surface, restore volume in the face, and plump the lips. We have a variety of dermal fillers available in the office based on your individual needs. Some of these are:


JUVÉDERM® XC: A hyaluronic acid based dermal filler used to provide temporary correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds (smile lines), perioral lines, and to plump the lips.


JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC: The first FDA-approved injectable gel to add volume to the cheek area for correction of age-related volume loss. It can provide a “lift” to the midface creating a more youthful appearance. With optimal treatment, it can last up to 2 years.


Restylane Silk – An FDA approved product specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth. Restylane Silk has smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles compared to other Restylane products to provide more natural looking results.


Restylane Refyne- A hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to help correct nasolabial fold lines and the marionette lines (the downward lines that form at the corners of the mouth with age). The unique crosslinking of the Restylane Refyne gel is designed to help support natural facial movement and expression.


Restylane Lyft – Restore fullness to the cheeks and midface with Restylane Lyft. Specifically designed to restore natural looking volume in the cheeks and moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the nasolabial folds.
