What It Is
Dermal fillers are non-surgical injectable gels made from hyaluronic acid - the featured ingredient in many moisturizers, and a naturally occurring compound found in skin. Dermal fillers work to restore and plump up soft tissue volume, smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and/or give lips and cheeks a naturally rejuvenated look.
How It Works
During your complimentary consultation, our providers will evaluate your skin condition, facial structure and your concerns to select the best product for your needs. Filler will then be injected into your desired treatment area and will add structure and volume to bring sunken skin back to the surface. Results are natural-looking and treatment is safe with little downtime.
What To Expect
Depending on your selected treatment area, the procedure can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour. Mild swelling, bruising and soreness may occur. You will see your results immediately, and can expect them to last 6-24 months (depending on filler and area).

Dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a common anesthetic, which helps patients tolerate the minor pinching feeling associated with injections. You will be given an ice pack after treatment to help reduce the swelling.

One of the things that makes dermal fillers so great is there is little downtime. Immediately after the treatment, there may be redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness and/or itching at or near the injection site. These symptoms are normal and should resolve within a few days. We do not recommend scheduling your appointment right before a big event.

Results can be seen immediately after treatment and will get better over the course of 2-3 weeks as the filler integrates with your own tissue. Filler can last anywhere from 6-24 months depending on the filler used and the injection area.

We carry a wide range of dermal fillers, including Juvederm, Restalyne, and RHA. Our providers will  discuss the best options with you to meet your goals.
