Collagen is a naturally-occurring protein in the body, providing structure and firmness to the skin. When collagen begins to break down and production diminishes as part of the aging process, lines and wrinkles can start to show up and a loss of facial volume can create a tired, sunken-in appearance. Injectable fillers are a nonsurgical solution to this common cosmetic concern. They work by mimicking your body’s natural collagen production, thus filling in fine lines and wrinkles and subtly plumping your cheeks for a younger, rejuvenated look.

About Injectable Fillers
If you’d like to minimize wrinkles and other signs of facial aging and enhance your appearance using nonsurgical treatments, dermal fillers may be right for you. In a brief “lunchtime” procedure, facial fillers can smooth your skin, improve texture and restore volume with no downtime.
During your initial consultation, one of our skilled cosmetic surgeons can assess your unique situation and help you decide which product might best suit your needs. For men and women who desire longer-term results, the Silhouette InstaLift™can offer a higher level of correction without the downtime associated with traditional facelift surgery.
Your Dermal Fillers Procedure
The procedure to administer various types of facial fillers can be very similar, though each treatment option utilizes a slightly different formula designed to target specific concerns. We offer a variety of injectable filler options:
JUVÉDERM® contains hyaluronic acid, which is naturally-occurring in your body and is responsible for skin repair. JUVÉDERM® can fill in fine lines and wrinkles that commonly occur in the lower face, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines and other wrinkles around the cheeks, nose, mouth and along the jawline to restore your skin for a smooth, firm texture. In some cases, JUVÉDERM® may also be effective in treating lines in the forehead and upper face.
The first calcium hydroxylapatite injectable, RADIESSE® acts as a supplement for your skin’s collagen. When your collagen supply becomes depleted, facial wrinkles form and many people experience significant volume loss. RADIESSE® can help combat these signs of aging by restoring cheek volume and rejuvenating the mid-face. This dermal filler is often used to treat the nasolabial folds that occur around the mouth.
Restylane® is made up of a hyaluronic acid formula, similar to that of JUVÉDERM®, and works by filling in fine lines and adding volume to the lips. Restylane® can be an excellent facial filler for wrinkles that appear on your upper lip, as well as the deeper wrinkles that occur in the nasolabial folds and at the corners of your mouth.
To restore the youthful fullness of your face, Sculptra™ injections can be an effective solution. Sculptra™ is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic biocompatible and biodegradable product, and works differently than other injectable fillers. Sculptra™ stimulates new collagen growth to bring volume back to the face, and may be used to fill in nasolabial folds, smile lines around your mouth and chin wrinkles.
Your Recovery & Results
Because injectable fillers are typically a “lunchtime procedure” that can often be performed in 20 minutes or less, there’s no recovery time associated with these treatments. Some mild swelling, redness or bruising around the injection sites are common side effects, but these symptoms should subside over the next few days.
Based on which facial filler you choose, your results may last anywhere from 4 months to more than 2 years. Depending on the dermal filler that’s best-suited to your needs, your cosmetic surgeon may recommend a series of injections spaced out over several months for optimal results.
Although injectable fillers offer temporary results, they can be long-lasting and can be easily maintained for an energized, youthful appearance.
