14 Reasons For Trying Dermal Fillers JUVÉDERM® & RADIESSE®


What’s the second most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment after BOTOX® in the United States?

It’s dermal fillers.

Often, wrinkles make us look older than we are, despite being part of the natural aging process. Through the years, our skin loses its water content, collagen base and underlying fat. This causes skin on the hands, face and other body areas to become thinner causing the appearance of folds, sagging and wrinkles on the skin. For people who are conscientious about diet, exercise and living a healthy lifestyle, their outside appearance begins to get out of sync with their youthful sense of self.

In order to restore their outward appearance, people are turning to injectable dermal fillers which can address a variety of skin issues that come with aging including:

  • Disease
  • Enhancing cheekbones, chins, eyebrows & jaw lines
  • Facial lines
  • Hollow cheeks & eyes
  • Irregularities of bone structure
  • Laugh lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Receding chins
  • Scarring
  • Skin trauma
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Sun damage
  • Thinning lips & skin on hands
  • Wrinkles

We use several different types of dermal fillers including JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE®. Results from these fillers can last 8-12 months depending on the injection location and which filler is used. An added bonus is that the dermal fillers often stimulate collagen remodeling which may improve the condition of your skin for years after the filler has dissolved. These fillers are biocompatible with human skin so there is little risk of allergic reaction.

Most treatments take about 30 minutes, depending on the number of injections required. The treatments are virtually painless and results are seen immediately.
