About fillers

There are several fillers that can be used – much like an artist with different paintbrushes on a palette. Each filler has it’s own unique properties and are used in different areas depending on the individual. Juvederm®, Voluma®, Volbella®,Restylane®, Perlane®, and Belotero® are volumizing fillers that are made of your own body’s hyaluronic acid.  Radiesse® and Sculptra® are advanced fillers that are used to stimulate collagen and fill in deeper areas such as cheeks and temples.   All the fillers are FDA approved and results are immediate and last up to 1 year! The fillers are often used together to create a natural and youthful look.


Hyaluronic acid


Hyaluronic acid and collagen are necessary for our skin to have fullness.   When we are born – we have 100% of this.  As we age – we lose a little bit each day.   This becomes evident in our 30’s as we develop creases/wrinkles between the nose and lips.   When we inject fillers – we are just restoring back what your body has lost.   In essence, we are filling your gas tank back to full.


Nasolabial fillers

This patient is 43 years old and its evident because the lines are extending from the nose all the way to the lips.  By injecting fillers, we are softening the lines.   We are not erasing them.  Just smoothing them so that it looks natural.

The results will be immediate however it can take up to 2 weeks for the filler to absorb into your body and create maximal effect.


Lips

As we age – our lips also start to lose collagen and hyaluronic acid.   It starts in the lateral portions and the lips begin to thin and sag.   You can see in the first photo how the lips have tired or droopy appearance.   By injecting filler back into the lips – we have created a balanced and youthful appearance.


Marionette Lines

As we continue to age – the lines extend further from the lips down to the chin.   These are called Marionette lines and often give a false appearance of sadness or fatigue.   By injecting fillers, we can immediately correct these lines and create a happier and more youthful appearance. This lasts for up to 1 year!
