What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers encompass a broad category of injectables that includes products like Restylane®, which is intended to ‘fill’ areas for differing effects. Whether you want to smooth, plump, sculpt, or refine, dermal fillers let us replace lost volume while addressing numerous skin concerns, especially those common with aging. Dermal fillers typically consist of a gel base with suspended particles of hyaluronic acid (HA), a component that naturally occurs in our skin and is responsible for hydration and fullness. We offer various dermal filler products to achieve any outcome you have in mind!
What Can Fillers Do For You?
Fillers perform numerous functions when injected into the skin. We can use fillers to minimize signs of aging on the backs of the hands, plump up your lips for the perfect pout, and to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Our expert injectors use dermal fillers to enhance your features while keeping your skin looking youthful, healthy, and bouncy, without the requirements of surgery. We can rebalance your facial features while even minimizing the appearance of skin laxity!
What Areas Can We Treat with Fillers?
One of the great things about dermal fillers is that they can be used on so many areas of the face and body! From under-eye hollows to the backs of your hands, we can use fillers to give you the exceptional results you deserve. We can use fillers for crow’s feet, forehead lines, lips plumping, jawline, cheeks, and more depending upon your unique facial anatomy.

What to Expect:
Before Your Treatment
Prior to your treatment, you’ll undergo a consultation with our injectors to learn more about your medical history, desired results, and more. We’ll provide you with preparation instructions, which includes avoiding the sun before your appointment.
During Your Treatment
We’ll first cleanse the skin and apply a numbing cream if you’re sensitive. Our injector will then insert the product into the desired treatment areas, often working with it to ensure it settles in correctly. This can take anywhere from 15 minutes to around an hour depending on your individual treatment and the amount of product necessary.
You might notice some swelling and redness, but this should typically dissipate within the following days. If you want to use ice or a cold pack, we recommend you be as gentle when applying it as possible. We also encourage you to avoid the sun and vigorous activity as much as possible after your appointment, to allow the filler to settle in undisturbed.
How Much Do These Aesthetic Treatments Cost?
We always strive to provide thorough care that allows our patients to live life the way they want to. Each of our dermal filler injectable treatments will vary in cost due to various individual factors, including quantity and desired treatment location. Our team will answer all your questions and go over the cost of your individual dermal filler treatment during a consultation!
