Fillers are just the right procedure to counteract the effects of aging in the lower face. So much of what happens around the lower cheeks, mouth and chin is due to gravity. Think of fillers as simply adding support and fullness to these areas. Fillers come in syringes, and the charge is based on how much you get.
The fillers that we use are all made from connective tissue substances that are found in nature. Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm are the products we offer at this time.They all last about six months. You will need topical anesthetic before having any of these products injected. There are many “off label” uses for these fillers that we can discuss with you at your appointment. Pretty much anywhere you need volume we can put in a filler.
Filler injections are quick and easy. There can be some down time. Some patients get a little swollen and there can be bruising. We recommend taking the afternoon and evening off after your appointment. You may find that you do not need it, but better safe than sorry.
The cost of the fillers varies. Please call the office for information. Make sure you are on our email list to take advantage of specials that we run about twice a year.
