With the passage of time the face and lips tends to lose volume, which causes the skin to look less full and less tight. Fillers are synthetic materials that are injected into the face to increase lip, cheek, or chin volume. Fillers can also be used to reduce the nasolabial fold and to fill in creases in the skin. In some cases, filler can be used to treat the hollows beneath the eyes. More and more consumers are opting for non-surgical techniques of preserving beauty as these techniques have ‘less downtime’ – without going thru the pains of healing from surgery Filler treatments are no recovery treatments that can be performed over the lunch hour. The primary fillers we offer include Juvederm and Restylane. Juvederm is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin and it attracts water increasing the fullness or plumpness of the skin. As we age we loose hyaluronic acid from the skin resulting in loss of fullness and deflation. Injecting Juvederm can increase the fullness and inflate the skin. The fact that hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin accounts for the low incidence of allergic reaction to Juvederm.
WHY ARE DERMA FILLER INJECTIONS POPULAR?
Dermal filler injections typically cause a consistent subtle improvement in facial appearances that can be seen immediately after the injection yet with little or no recovery.
WHY DO DERMAL FILLERS MAKE PEOPLE LOOK YOUNGER?
With the passage of time we loose volume in the face. Loss of volume results in deflation of the face. Our face is much like a round inflatable ball. If the ball is fully inflated there are no wrinkles on the surface. Dermal filler essentially re-inflates the face.

WHAT AREAS OF THE FACE ARE FILLERS USED IN THE MOST?
Dermal fillers are used most frequently in the nasolabial folds (the fold between the cheek and mouth) and the lips.
DO DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS AND BOTOX INJECTIONS DO THE SAME THING?
No. Botox reduces wrinkles caused by contraction of muscles by relaxing those muscles. It works best in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and in the area just lateral to the eyelids (crow’s feet wrinkles). Filler adds volume to the face and works best in the areas of the face that lie below the eyes.
