Facial volume loss, causing deep lines and wrinkles, can be attributed to such factors as time, sun exposure and genetic disposition. We use dermal fillers to soften smile lines and to enhance cheeks, lifting the lower face in the process. Dermal fillers sit under the skin to provide volume and support.
We use FDA approved dermal fillers like Juvéderm, Belotero and Radiesse, which are injected using fine needles to sculpt the face and create a lifting effect while also softening prominent creases. Results from dermal fillers are noticeable immediately and generally last about nine months up to two years.

Juvéderm is the umbrella name for a number of hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers, with each designed to treat specific types of facial tissue. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in the soft, connective tissues of the human body and holds a thousand times its weight in water to not only retain all that moisture in our skin, but also prevent all that moisture from evaporating into the air. It creates volume by drawing water to the area, creating a filling effect. Belotero is also hyaluronic acid based.
Radiesse uses calcium-based microspheres to correct wrinkles and folds in the face. The microspheres stimulate your body to produce collagen. Collagen is a protein that occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for skin’s strength and elasticity.
Injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a highly regenerative therapy that can be injected to add volume and support to sculpt the face. PRP is rich in essential nutrients and growth factors that help tissue heal while stimulating new cell growth. Results from PRP injections are noticeable immediately and generally last about twelve months up to two years.
