Fillers (Juvéderm® and others)

One of the earliest signs of aging is loss of facial fullness with the development of expression lines, which are wrinkle lines that are a result of repeated muscle movement. If you wish to enhance or restore facial contours or reduce the appearance of lines and creases, injection therapy with soft tissue fillers might be right for you. Injectable fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contour, soften facial creases and wrinkles. There is very little down time with this procedure and it is done in the office.

Facial aging includes phenomenon of deflation or loss of volume and wrinkle lines.  Injectable dermal fillers, like Juvéderm®, Radiesse, Restylane, and others can fill in the deep folds, creases and volume loss areas.   They can also be used for lip enhancement.  Effects are immediate and will improve even more over the next few days.  A topical anesthetic is used and discomfort is minimal with the procedure and bruising is mild, if it occurs.  Normal activity can be resumed later that day and effects should last up to a year, depending on the product used.
