Volumizers

Dermal fillers, commonly called “filler”, are a collection of injected products that provide a less invasive, cost-effective and safe option for facial rejuvenation. As we go thru life, our skin loses its youthful appearance due to a loss of function and substance in our dermis, our supporting layer of our skin. This produces wrinkles and an aged-appearance. Filler helps correct these changes by replacing some of that loss of support.

Several different products are available on the market including hyaluronic acid products (ie, Juvaderm, Restylane and Perlane), calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse), and poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra). All products have FDA-approval for facial rejuvenation. Schedule an appointment today with your advanced dermatology cosmetic provider to learn which product is right for you.


Q: What can I expect at my appointment?

A: Several things. First, it’s best to come to the appointment without anything on your face and on a day when you can go home and relax for several hours. Many people come in for injections when they have no major social events to attend for a few days. The injections can take up to 20 minutes depending on what product, how much work is being done, and how well the injections are tolerated.

Q: What can I expect from the product?

A: For most products, it will work right away. It takes about 1-2 weeks for the full effects to occur, so please consider this when making your appointment. It tends to last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the patient and product.

Q: Can I have other procedures performed too?

A: Absolutely, these injections are commonly combined with other cosmetic procedures. When you come in for your injections, ask your provider about other services that you can have done.
