Non-surgical dermal fillers help to correct facial lines and revive volume and fullness in the face. As we age, we naturally lose some of the fat just beneath the skin. Our facial muscles are then working closer to the skin’s surface, so areas near active muscle movement, like “smile lines” and “crow’s feet,” become more visible. Over time, facial skin also loses elasticity, further diminishing facial volume. Other factors, such as sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle, affect the appearance of facial skin as well.
Dermal fillers are different than wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®, in that they do not stop muscle movement. Composed of naturally-derived or synthetic materials, fillers are directly injected into skin, with the purpose of plumping that area to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or fold is gone. Dermal fillers can be very effective in combatting early signs of aging*; common applications include:
• Softening facial creases and wrinkles
• Improving the appearance of recessed scars
• Enhancing shallow contours
• Augmenting cheeks to restore fullness
• Plumping thin lips
Dermal fillers are also useful as a component in combination treatments like the ImageRenew Facelift©. We currently offer the types of fillers below; please contact us for a consultation to determine which may be right for you.

*Patients may need more than one injection to get the desirable smoothing/filling effect; individual results can depend on factors such as the health of the skin, the type of filler, and the amount used. The time that the effect lasts depends on the filler material used and the area where it is injected.
