As we age, wrinkles and creases begin to appear in the skin and lips as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down and wear out. In the past, the most frequently used material for filling these wrinkles and lines was injectable collagen, but now there is an array of FDA approved filler options available such as Restylane, Perlane (Restylane L), Restylane Silk, Juvéderm, Belotero, Bellafill and even your own fat! These products are injected into or under your skin, beneath a wrinkle or fold. The number of injections needed depends on the depth and length of the wrinkle.
Juvéderm is an injectable gel that instantly restores your skin’s volume and tone. It is the only filler available with a smooth consistency gel formulation. Crow’s feet and wrinkles between the eyes and at the corners of the mouth all respond well to Juvéderm. Lip enhancement and improvement in vertical or “smoker’s lines” can also be improved using Juvederm.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in healthy skin that helps add volume and hydration. There is no allergy test needed for these fillers because they are not extracted from animals.
