Lift, plump and smooth your way to flawless, younger-looking skin with Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Juvéderm Voluma XC, Juvéderm XC, Radiesse and Sculptra.
Your aesthetics expert will meet with you to discuss your skin, medical history and desired results in detail. Together you will determine which fillers will work best for you and how much product is needed to attain your ideal results. Patients report that dermal filler treatments are comfortable with little to no downtime. Some of our fillers have lidocaine to minimize discomfort, and your aesthetics expert can also provide you with additional anesthesia options if necessary. Very few patients report any need for extended recovery after the procedure. Most people return to work, or resume their day, immediately after their appointment. All filler treatments are designed for patients who are 21 years of age or older.
Restylane remains one of the most popular wrinkle fillers on the market because its unique hyaluronic acid formula is particularly effective in treating fine lines as well as deeper wrinkles, boosting the fullness of lips and helping to restore volume and smooth wrinkles around the mouth, eyes and cheeks. The Restylane line of FDA-approved fillers is designed to mimic the effects of the hyaluronic acid that’s naturally produced by the body. The proprietary NASHA technology means that there is a unique particle size for each Restylane product, allowing us to custom-tailor your treatment on each area of the face for the most natural looking results. Most patients receive Restylane injections every six to nine months for best results.
Plump, full lips and a perfect smile are considered universal signs of beauty. As we age, thin lips and deeper lines around the mouth become much more common due to reduced collagen production in the body. Restylane Silk is specifically formulated to deliver fullness, subtle definition and a plush, natural look and feel to the lips while smoothing and softening the mouth area.
This “next generation” hyaluronic acid filler is ideal for restoring volume in the lips while also helping to banish stubborn wrinkles, smile lines, laugh lines and “smoker’s lines” around the mouth area. The smaller, softer hyaluronic acid particles are ideal for treating the delicate mouth and lip area. Learn more about our Perfect Lips Lip Enhancement Procedure.
Designed to restore fullness and volume to the cheek area, Restylane Lyft is becoming extremely popular for contouring the mid-face, cheekbones and jawline. In addition to the appearance of wrinkles, the mid-face and cheeks can often be among the first areas to show our age due to a natural loss of collagen. Cheeks can flatten and look hollow, the cheekbones may no longer shape the face as strongly as they once did, and the skin in the mid face area can sag and take on a textured, wrinkly appearance. Restylane Lyft smooths the surface of the skin, corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and adds volume to any contour deficient areas to impart a younger, more radiant and defined appearance.
Juvéderm is an FDA-approved injectable hyaluronic acid gel filler that instantly smoothes moderate to severe lines and wrinkles outlining your nose and mouth area, often referred to as “parentheses lines”. As we age, our skin naturally produces less collagen and is less likely to retain hydration, resulting in thinner looking skin that makes wrinkles and uneven skin texture even more visible. While moisture-rich serums and wrinkle creams can help temporarily plump the look of skin, Juvéderm XC can fill in even the deepest wrinkles and folds, smooth skin and deliver long-term, natural-looking results. In fact, Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid filler proven to last up to one year in wrinkles and folds. And, when treated again after one year, patients needed less filler to attain their desired results.

Juvéderm Voluma is quickly becoming one of our most-requested dermal filler products for patients looking to lift, contour and smooth the cheek area and restore lost volume. Voluma patients report looking up to five years younger, even 6 months after treatment. Juvéderm Voluma is a safe, FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler designed to help restore volume in facial areas where it has been reduced due to the natural process of aging. This filler is most often used in the cheeks and cheekbones to create more fullness after collagen production has dropped and skin has taken on on a thinner, more wrinkled or textured appearance. Our patients love to use Voluma for lifting and contouring the cheeks and jawline for younger, more sculpted facial features. After a Voluma treatment, facial fullness, smoothness and youthful vitality can be restored for years to come. Juvéderm Voluma is the only cheek filler proven to last up to two years. And when treated again after two years, patients found they needed less product to achieve their results.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved poly-L lactic acid injectable dermal filler that helps gradually replace and regenerate lost collagen for powerful anti-aging benefits that can last more than two years. Sculptra is ideal for correcting and smoothing shallow to deep lines, wrinkles and folds. Our patients love Sculptra because it is both corrective and preventative, meaning it will instantly correct any facial wrinkles you have now, and help prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming in the future.
Unlike Botox and hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Sculptra works by stimulating your skin’s own production of collagen. Loss of collagen is one of the main causes of aged looking skin. As early as our 20’s, our body’s natural collagen production begins to drop and our skin starts to look and feel thinner, less firm, less smooth and more wrinkled. By age 40, most people have up to a 20% collagen loss, and by age 50 we are dealing with a loss of 30% of our collagen supply. Sculptra works deep within the skin, in the dermis, to revitalize your body’s own collagen production, restore volume and help rebuild your skin’s inner structure. Results appear gradually after several treatments, and the benefits are longer-term, making this an ideal anti-aging solution for most patients. Whether you’re looking to banish frown lines, crow’s feet or correct deep wrinkles around your mouth and jawline, this effective collagen-boosting treatment could be the answer for you.
Radiesse is a unique volumizing dermal filler comprised of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. This FDA-approved anti-aging treatment is specifically designed for the correction of facial lines, wrinkles, nasolabial folds and restoration of the signs of facial fat loss, also known as lipoatrophy, in HIV patients. Radiesse works immediately to plump skin and add volume, and over time it helps to stimulate your natural collagen production. The anti-aging benefits of a Radiesse treatment can last up to a year or more, making this a popular option for patients looking for a wrinkle reducing injectable with long-lasting yet natural-looking results.
