Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane are injectable filler used in our office.  A simple procedure will be performed by the doctor, who will inject the fillers into the skin surface.  Results are instant and one's skin looks smoother and more natural.  Fillers are available in two strengths.  One is for the fine lines and rejuvenation of the lips, and the other is for deeper folds and lines.

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane, are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is used in the lower facial regions.  They instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds around your mouth and nose.

The results are immediate with minimal downtime.  Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing with results lasting up to one year.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH DERMAL FILLERS?

    ♦ Lines from the corners of mouth to the chin area (marionette lines)

    ♦ Smile folds from the corners of the mouth to the nose (nasolabial folds)

    ♦ Acne scars

    ♦ Vertical lip lines (rhytids)

    ♦ Thin lips and thin lip borders

HOW ARE FACIAL FILLERS ADMINISTERED?

Facial fillers are injected into the skin with a small fine gauge needle to ensure minimal discomfort.  Anesthesia is not required although a small amount of lidocaine is contained within dermal fillers which makes the procedure very tolerable.  Treatment usually takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

ARE DERMAL FILLERS SAFE?

Yes, dermal fillers are safe and FDA-approved.  Short term swelling and redness lasting 24 hours is common although there is no downtime at all.  In order to reduce the risk of bruising, we recommend patients discontinue aspirin and blood thinners after medical clearance from your primary care physician.

WHO CAN HAVE DERMAL FILLERS?

Anyone can benefit from a dermal filler although we recommend patients 35 years of age and older.  A consultation with Dr. Greene will include a discussion about your expectations and concerns.  The consultation will also help to determine the exact facial areas which may benefit from the injections of dermal filler.
