Dermal fillers restore volume and are used to correct wrinkles and soft tissue loss due to aging. They are injected into the superficial layers of the skin and are most commonly used in the smile lines, lips and corners of the mouth. Advanced techniques also involve the use of certain fillers around the eyes and cheek bones to restore a more youthful look.
Restylane® is our most commonly used dermal filler and has an excellent safety profile. Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, a compound found naturally in the body, and is injected in the smile lines, under the eyes and in the lips if desired. Results can last 4 – 9 months depending on the site injected.
Juvederm® XC & Juvederm Voluma™ XC
Juvederm® XC is a smooth gel filler used 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.
Juvederm Voluma™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile. It can last for up to 2 years and may be used in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than Juvederm® XC and works on a different area of the face.
Belotero Balance® Dermal Filler is designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results. The versatility of Belotero makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line). Results can last 6-8 months, depending on the site injected.
