Cosmetic Fillers

Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm are smooth gel injectables that can fill the skin, instantly smoothing away folds and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. They can enhance cheek bones and give lips a fuller look. They provide a lifted and younger appearance without the discomfort and pain of surgery. Juvederm and Restylane can be used to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). They also can be used to fill scars and fill in thin or wrinkled lips for a plumper appearance. These smooth gel fillers allow your practitioner to mold the product to your specifications and improve the look of your skin to your specifications. Many patients see an immediate improvement and treatments can last up to one year.

Different Types of Fillers:

JUVÉDERM® is the smooth gel filler that your provider uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you'll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year

Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin's lost volume. Upon injection, Restylane Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what's unique about Restylane Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow.

Perlane is a dermal filler and is a long-lasting gel that, once injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, lift and add volume and help diminsh fine lines. Made of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid, it is a completely safe treatment. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane simply supplements the body's age-depleted hyaluronic acid to plump-up the lip or to raise the skin and 'fill in' the particular wrinkle being treated.

Cosmetic Filler Procedure:

Anesthetic may not be needed prior to treatment since all of our fillers are specially formulated with lidocaine (a type of anesthetic) to improve comfort during treatment. We may also elect to use a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area before the injections. Filler will be injected under your skin (where wrinkles and folds occur) to replace lost skin volume. Following the injection, the treated areas are gently massaged. The procedure is quick and easy and the results are instant! The injection itself usually takes only about 15 minutes.

What to Expect:

Because cosmetic fillers are a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime (and the results are instant!). So you can have a treatment on the way home from work or the gym, or even while the kids are at soccer practice -- and get right back to your daily routine.

We that you avoid any medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), for at least a week prior to receiving the treatment for wrinkles in order to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

You should avoid the following for at least 24 hours after treatment:

  • Strenuous exercise
  • Consumption of alcoholic beverages
  • Extended exposure to sun or heat
