Filler injections

Filler overview

Non-surgical treatments such as injections of Botox® and injectable fillers offer a safe, effective method of preventing and treating wrinkles in the face.

While Botox® works to prevent and treat fine wrinkles, injectable fillers work by temporarily restoring volume to the aging face to correct medium depth and deep lines. As we age, our natural density of hyaluronic acid soft tissue decreases, and our facial ligaments relax causing sagging of the overlying skin and fat pads, giving us an aged and wrinkled appearance.

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm™ products are very popular, and can be used to fill fine and moderate lines around the lower eyelids, cheeks, nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to corner of the mouth), marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to chin), and lips.  Providing immediate results with almost no downtime, these products give you a natural, younger look and feel.

What to expect if you’re having filler injections

You will have an in depth consultation with the surgeon to decide which areas of the face should be treated with each type of filler. The results are immediate, natural looking and gratifying.
