If you would like to improve the appearance of skin that is aged and worn without surgery, dermal fillers are an effective, non-invasive way to restore your youthful beauty. Fillers are injected into areas of your face that have lost volume over time. They are a safe and temporary way to repair wrinkles, lines and scars as well as provide full, luscious lips.

Juvederm is a soft smooth gel that contains concentrated amounts of hyaluronic acid. By replenishing your skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm can provide volume to targeted areas of the skin.
Juvederm is an ideal option to address:
- Deep facial wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Lip augmentation
As noted in the list above, not only can the volumizing power of Juvederm give you a younger appearance by smoothing out wrinkles and replenishing your skin, it can enhance your lips to give them a fuller, plumper look.
Restylane® and Restylane Lyft
Restylane and Restylane Lyft are also hyaluronic acid-based compounds that are injected into the skin to provide a more youthful appearance. These fillers can smooth out wrinkles, reshape facial contours and enhance dull, flat lips.
Both formulations of Restylane are safe and effective ways to treat wrinkles and enhance areas around your:
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Jaw line
Radiesse is a smooth injectable gel made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. Once injected, the filler increases volume in the targeted area and then continues to work by stimulating collagen production in the body. After is has been absorbed by the body, the natural collagen continues to provide a natural-looking appearance.
Radiesse is a great way to achieve a refreshed appearance and can help temporarily reduce or eliminate:
- Facial wrinkles
- Pre-jowl folds
- Chin wrinkles
- Lines on the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic-based injectable dermal filler that diminishes facial wrinkles by increasing volume in the skin. Unlike Juvederm and Restylane, which deliver volume through hyaluronic acid, Sculptra doesn’t provide immediate volume. Instead, it stimulates the production of collagen, producing results that emerge gradually, over a period of weeks and months rather than a matter of days.
As your results slowly appear, your skin will look more smooth and youthful and no one will recognize you’ve had treatment. Sculptra is commonly used to improve the appearance of:
- Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Volume loss throughout the face
- Other facial wrinkles and lines
One of the big advantages of using Sculptra is its long-lasting results. Many patients enjoy a fresher, more youthful appearance for as long as two years after treatment.
Although many people work hard to eliminate fat in order to achieve a more attractive appearance, when harvested and injected into the face, fat can become a powerful cosmetic tool to effectively address a number of cosmetic issues.
Using material taken from your own body, fat transfer can be used to:
- Correct facial wrinkles, folds and laugh lines
- Increase size and contour of cheekbones
- Increase lip size
- Fill in acne scars
Fat is harvested from your own body by liposuction from the abdominal, thigh or buttock area. It is then cleaned and treated before being injected into the face.
