Facial Fillers

Get the lift you’ve been looking for with facial fillers, which can treat the signs of aging in a gentle and discreet way.

You can instantly smooth away facial wrinkles and lines with fillers.

Facial fillers, (PERLANE-L, RESTYLANE-L, JUVEDERM ULTRA, JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS, PREVELLE, RADIESSE, and SCULPTRA), are a non-surgical approach to enhance the signs of aging. These products can be used to restore volume and fullness into the soft tissue of the face and to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as laugh lines, marionette lines, lipstick lines, and corners of the mouth.

Fillers are usually formed from hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar found in all living cells and one of the major components of the dermis connective tissue, along with collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density. By combining lidocaine with the filler injections discomfort during the injection has been minimized.

Injections of fillers are a non-surgical option that may:

  • Smooth deep furrows and wrinkles
  • Restore volume to the cheeks and fullness to the lips
  • Fill in marionette lines and naso-labial folds around the mouth

While results are not permanent, they can last up to a year, and possibly longer depending on the product. After your treatment, you might have some swelling redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and will normally last less than seven days.

Discuss your options with our experienced cosmetic surgeons, Dr. David Bauer and Dr. Zachary Young.
