Dermal Fillers

Treatment Options

The aging process, time and sun damage diminish the natural collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin, resulting in the loss of lip structure and volume, as well as the appearance of unwelcome lines and wrinkles. With dermal fillers, we can now replace the skin's lost volume, correct wrinkles and folds, and restore or enhance the lips volume.

Dermal fillers are similar to Botox Cosmetic in that they can diminish or completely eliminate wrinkles and lines. However, rather than relaxing the underlying facial muscles, dermal fillers are substances that are injected beneath the skin to fill creases and deep furrows. Areas most commonly treated with dermal fillers include the furrows which run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, deep smile lines and frown lines. They can also be used to plump up lips, smooth out uneven lip lines or shape facial contours. We offer both temporary and permanent cosmetic injectable fillers that are both safe and effective.

Juvéderm™, Stylage and Restylane are made of hyaluronic acid, a natural compound in the human body that helps keep the skin plump and elastic. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases, resulting in increased lines. When injected into the skin, these products temporarily replace the body's lost hyaluronic acid to create the volume needed to fill out problem areas for a period of 6 to 12 months.
