The breakdown of collagen is a natural part of the aging process. Collagen is a protein found throughout the body, especially in the skin, and is responsible for the skin’s firmness and elasticity. When collagen breaks down, fine lines and wrinkles appear. Thankfully, there are many safe and effective treatments to reduce the signs of aging, such as injectable dermal fillers

Belotero Balance® is an injectable prescription filler intended to smooth out moderate to severe nasolabial folds (the lines from the nose to the mouth) and vertical lip lines. Belotero Balance is an ideal treatment for these delicate areas and provides effective and temporary smoothness.

Restylane® corrects moderate to several facial wrinkles, including “smile lines” and folds between the eyebrows. As an injectable gel filler, it can be used to increase fullness in the lips and cheeks.

JUVEDERM® XC is an injectable gel filler that smooths lines and wrinkles around the mouth, with results that can last up to 1 year. Similar to Restylane, JUVEDERM is a safe and effective method of rejuvenating your appearance.

Radiesse® is injected directly into the dermal area where more fullness is desired, such as smile lines, jowls, and cheeks. Patients can enjoy a younger-looking appearance immediately, with results that can last up to 1 year. It is not recommended as a lip filler.

Injectable dermal fillers are a minimally invasive way to achieve a smoother, fuller-looking appearance. Although the needles used are very fine, a topical anesthetic cream may be used prior to treatment to enhance comfort.
