Is This You?

Here are some of the common reasons I hear about why a person is considering a facial filler:

  • I’ve noticed a loss of volume in a few areas of my face, making them appear older
  • I have “laugh lines” extending from the corners of my nose down to my jaw
  • I have wrinkles and creases around my eyebrows and eyes
  • I have a few very fine lines that I’d like to treat before they get worse
I like BOTOX because it makes me feel refreshed, youthful, and gives me that little bit of extra confidence. People are shocked when they hear I’m over 40 and they want to know my secret!– STEPHANIE, Real PatientSee more Real patient Stories

The Relationship of Collagen and Facial Fillers

Collagen is an essential building block of the skin and gives the skin both elasticity and firmness. As we age, collagen breaks down more easily and new collagen production declines. In addition, the soft layer of fat beneath the skin’s surface also diminishes with age. Injectable fillers replace lost collagen and fat to increase facial volume and plump up deeper lines and wrinkles.

Injectable fillers can be used for deep facial wrinkles, and are especially effective for the lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth (known as nasolabial folds, laugh lines or parentheses lines). I also use fillers for volume enhancement in areas such as the cheeks to restore a more youthful facial fullness. Fillers can be used for lip enhancement whether to add to your natural volume or to restore lost fullness.

Commonly, I combine fillers with additional med spa treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic injections or a chemical peel. They also may be used to enhance the results of a facial cosmetic surgery procedure.

Our Filler Brands


Filler Spotlight: JUVÉDERM Voluma™

JUVÉDERM Voluma™ is the first and only injectable filler that is FDA-approved to add volume instantly to the cheeks. It achieves a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile for up to 2 years. It is formulated differently than JUVÉDERM® and is focused on the cheek area. Some other highlights:

  • Instantly adds volume to the cheeks and creates a subtle lift
  • Clinically proven to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
  • From Allergan, the makers of JUVÉDERM®, BOTOX® Cosmetic and other trusted beauty treatments.

Filler Spotlight: Belotero®

Though it is one of the newer injectables on the market, I’ve found that Belotero® can offer many advantages, even for men and women already using other facial filler treatments. Here are just a few areas where Belotero® can be effective:

  • Very fine lines – The formulation of Belotero® enables it to work in very small areas where other fillers may “overfill” the imperfection.
  • Transverse forehead lines – These lines across the brow can be treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic, but in cases of very deep furrows, the addition of Belotero® can help create a much smoother appearance. In some patients with low eyebrows for whom BOTOX® is not a good option for the forehead, Belotero alone can work wonders.
  • Crow’s feet – Again, Belotero® can be a good adjunct treatment where BOTOX® Cosmetic does not adequately correct these lines around the eyes.
  • Nasolabial folds – Many fillers can successfully treat this area of the face, though in my experience Belotero® offers the advantage of not causing the slight bluish tint under the skin that can be seen in some other fillers in patients with lighter skin tones.

I’m happy to provide more information on this filler and give you my professional opinion about which filler options will be most effective for your skin needs during your consultation.

Recovery and Results

Facial injectable fillers require a small amount of “downtime.” Typically, you may experience some temporary swelling or redness at the injection site for 1 to 2 days. Occasionally, you may develop a visible bruise at the area of the injection, which may take 5 to 7 days to disappear. My advice is to plan appropriately and far enough in advance of important life/work events to allow for a beautiful result!

The improvement and results are visible immediately after treatment cases and can last from 6 to 24 months, depending on the brand of filler used and how quickly your body metabolizes the filler material.
