Injectable Fillers


Smooth out wrinkles with Restylane®, Perlane® or Juvederm®! These products are FDA approved synthetic biodegradable hyaluronic acid used for more than a decade in 60 countries. This natural product can be used to help enhance areas such as your cheeks, earlobes, glabella, lips and lip lines, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, tear trough (undereyes) and scars.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) adds volume in two ways: First the gel itself lifts the skin, then the hyaluronic acid attracts and binds with water molecules, providing additional volume. Depending on the area treated, hyaluronic acid lasts almost twice as long as collagen injections.

After treatment, any discomfort that patients experience typically fades within a few days. For example, when the lips are treated they may appear swollen and somewhat uneven during the first few days. This look will dissipate as swelling subsides. Normal activities can typically be resumed right away. There are few side effects associated with hyaluronic acid including redness, swelling and tenderness. The results of hyaluronic acid generally last four to six months or longer.

Patients should avoid taking aspirin, Motrin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. Johns Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements for two weeks prior to treatment. This will help to minimize any bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
