Hyaluronic Acids

Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most widely used substances for soft tissue augmentation.  These cosmetic fillers, including Restalyne®, Perlane®, Juvederm®, Juvederm Voluma®, and Belotero® are injected into the skin to help with facial volume loss that is common with aging.  Hyaluronic acid fillers help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sagging, folds, hollowness under the eyes, scars and depressions.  These fillers allow a non-surgical approach to achieve an instant, more youthful, natural looking result that lasts.

Is It Safe?

Hyaluronic acids naturally exist as a component of your skin.  By binding to water, hyaluronic acid fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.  These fillers are very safe and effective.

What to Expect

This procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes and the results can be seen immediately.  Depending on your comfot level, you may or may not receive a local anesthetic or numbing solution before the fine needles is inserted into your skin.  There is no recovery times necessary with this treatment, allowing you to return to your normal activities immediately afterward.  However, swelling and bruising are possible.

The results of hyaluronic acid fillers are not permanent, but they do last longer than other treatments.  You can expect to see results for six to twelve months for most fillers, or up to two years, depending on the chosen filler.

Other Fillers

Other fillers we offer include Radiesse® and Sculptra®, both of which are very safe and effective, and are used in much the same way as hyaluronic acid fillers.
