Injectable Fillers & Facial Rejuvenation

Modern cosmetic medicine offers many noninvasive techniques for improving your appearance.

Injectable products fall into two broad categories fillers and neuromodulators:

  • Fillers – Used to fill in deep wrinkles, and rejuvenate and improve the facial structure including cheeks.
  • Restylane – Restylane is an injectable filler made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body. Hyaluronic acid is an ideal substance for long lasting cosmetic filler, as it is able to retain water to maintain its form longer than most other injectables.

    Restylane is used frequently for procedures to fill in moderate wrinkling, such as those that appear in the nasiolabial fold, extending from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth. Restylane is often used for lip enhancement.

    Effects of Restylane injections can last six months or longer, and can be repeated as the effects wear off.

  • Radiesse – As we age we tend to lose the fat in our faces. Those fat pads give us a more youthful appearance and the loss of facial volume leads to a hollow look in the cheek area. In the past, permanent silicone cheeks implants were a solution to this problem. Unfortunately, these proved to be problematic.

    The implants tended to shift over time, or worse, they appeared as apples in shape as the patient’s skin and facial fat changed with age. Another solution was fat injections. However fat had to be harvested from other parts of the body requiring extensive surgery.

    Radiesse is hydroxyapatite and has been used for years as a wrinkle filler. Now, however, with advanced injection techniques we are able to augment the cheek area and the chin area with long lasting Radiesse.

    The treatments take about 30 minutes. They are performed in an outpatient setting and the results are instantaneous. A dental block is used to minimize discomfort. One or two syringes are used in each cheek depending on the patient. Some bruising can occur but it is transient.
