Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers help to restore volume and fullness in the face and diminish facial lines and wrinkles.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so expression lines lines when we smile or frown become more apparent. The facial skin also looses elasticity, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include family history, lifestyle and  sun exposure.


Belotero® is made of a material called hyaluronic acid, which naturally exists as a component of your skin. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for a smooth and natural result.  Belotero® can be safely placed in the hollows under the eyes (“tear trough”) to give an instantaneous and reliably subtle improvement with an excellent safety profile.


Juvederm® instantly smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around your nose and mouth. Because Juvederm is a simple, non-surgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime with instantaneous results.

Restylane Silk®

Restylane Silk® is a hyaluronic acid product that integrates beautifully into your skin, eliminating the concern that a “ridge” or stiffness may give away the fact that a procedure was done. Hyaluronic acid is a component of your skin that draws and holds fluid, which makes lips treated with Restylane Silk® have a fuller, softer and more hydrated look.

  • Fills deep lines, wrinkles and creases
  • Fills and enhances lips
  • Provides volume and fullness
  • Results are immediate
  • Lasts three to nine months


Radiesse® is a volumizing filler which works immediately to add the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. With just one treatment, wrinkles and folds disappear. Not only does Radiesse® provide structure under the skin, it works to stimulate the growth of your own natural collagen.


Aging brings about a diffuse loss of the fullness, seen as a flattening of the cheeks, a hollowing of the temples, thinning of the lips and coarsening and wrinkling of the area around the mouth. By replacing the volume loss, you reverse the creation of shadows and restore the reflection of light, creating a youthful, energetic and healthy appearance. Sculptra® is made of up microscopic particles that stimulate collagen production, which will lift the skin without the use of scalpels or sutures that may leave scars. Many patients are better served by this “liquid face-lift” than they would be by a surgical face lift that removes excess skin but does not restore volume.
