Who is a candidate for dermal filler treatments?

Women and men choose dermal filler treatments for facial rejuvenation and enhancement without surgery. Popular uses for these treatments include:

  • Smoothing away facial folds, creases, and wrinkles
  • Adding or restoring volume to the cheeks, brows, and temples, and under the eyes
  • Filling out and defining the lips

While dermal fillers provide excellent improvements on their own, our surgeons also use them to enhance the results of facial plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, brow lift, and eyelid surgery.

Which filler is right for me?

We offer a range of FDA-approved fillers made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that gives the skin fullness and elasticity, and helps it retain moisture. Filler options available at our practice, listed by the concerns they improve, include:

  • Lines, folds, and wrinkles around the mouth and nose: JUVÉDERM® XC, VOLLURE™ XC, JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC, Restylane-L®
  • Cheek area: JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC
  • Lips and lip lines: JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC, Restylane® Silk, Restylane-L®

During your consultation, your surgeon will recommend the filler or combination of treatments best suited to your aesthetic goals. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are often performed along with filler treatments to provide a more complete facial rejuvenation. Fat grafting may be an option for patients who are interested a longer-lasting, more natural filler.

What are filler treatments like?

Our surgeons perform these simple treatments right in our office. Treatment take approximately 15 minutes to an hour to complete. Using a short, fine needle several quick injections are made beneath the skin of the face or lips. Patients usually experience little to no discomfort because our fillers contain a numbing medication.

What can I expect during recovery?

Normal activities may be resumed immediately after treatment as no downtime is needed. We do recommend holding off on strenuous exercise for the remainder of the day of treatment.

How long do filler results last?

Improvements from filler treatments are immediate, but temporary. The longevity of results depends on the specific filler used, area treated, and depth of injection. Some fillers last 6 to 12 months, others last as long as 2 years. Periodic maintenance treatments can keep your enhanced look indefinitely.
