As you age, sun damage and other factors can reduce the amount of HA (hyaluronic acid) in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume — creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. The goal is to return the dermis to its original youthful state. Dermal fillers can give a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts and are being used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss. When scheduling your appointment, make sure your calendar allows for the possibility of swelling for three to five days (especially after the first treatment).

Juvéderm® XC is the only HA ﬁller proven to last up to one year in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and lines and is the ﬁrst ﬁller proven to last up to one year in the lips.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
Juvéderm® Voluma XC adds volume to the cheeks for a more youthful appearance. Voluma XC is the only ﬁller proven to last up to two years in the cheek area.
Juvéderm® Vollbella XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler shown to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to one year.
Juvéderm® Vollure adds subtle volume to the lips and smooths the appearance of vertical lip lines.
RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that is FDA-approved to smooth moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). RADIESSE® is also used to correct volume loss in the back of the hands. RADIESSE® is injected through a small needle and immediately adds volume under the skin. Over time, RADIESSE® stimulates your body’s own natural collagen, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients.
RADIESSE® is comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Over time, the gel is absorbed, and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
Restylane® fills in lines and adds volume to the skin for a healthy, youthful appearance. Restylane® dermal fillers offer versatile solutions to address your individual needs, from correcting severe facial wrinkles to filling in nasolabial folds. Restylane® is designed to act like your body’s own naturally-produced hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, HA, is a molecule that offers support and structure to your tissues throughout the body, including your skin, protecting it from damage. HA keeps your skin hydrated and firm through its ability to bind water molecules.
However, as you age, the natural production of HA by your body changes. Your skin can become thinner, dehydrated, and less firm, losing its radiance and youthful appearance.
The Restylane® range utilizes two technologies to stabilize highly pure HA into a gel form that allows it to last long in the skin, smoothing the surface and providing lift and support where needed.
A liquid lift is a non-surgical way to take years off your appearance. It smooths wrinkles, restores volume, and enhances facial features. Best of all, the results are immediate.
Through the use of Dermal fillers we offer and BOTOX®/DYSPORT® cosmetics, your face can be sculpted into a more youthful-looking you. Instead of using surgery to pull and stretch the skin, a liquid lift addresses the real culprit in the aging process, volume loss.
The Liquid Face Lift provides a quick, effective, much less invasive alternative for the patient wanting immediate results without prolonged downtime.
