What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers, also known by their brand names Juvederm and Radiesse, are made up of a clear gel that occurs naturally in the body.  Called hyaluronic acid, or HA, it is found in places like the joints and eyes, where it acts as a natural lubricant and places a role in skin and joint health.

We can take advantage of these natural properties to inject it in places like in the lips, creases, wrinkles, folds, and depressions of the face to add back volume and give skin a hydrated and youthful appearance.  Fillers are a very effective treatment for moderate to deep wrinkles that would not get complete treatment with winkle relaxers like Botox or Jeuveau.

Hyaluronic acid is very hydrating so it gives your face a refreshed youthful glow.  It is a great non-surgical facelift alternative, plus there is no downtime!  Fillers are naturally absorbed in the body over time but their effects last many months.  In my free consultations, we discuss your goals and I carefully examine your skin to determine how filler can best be used.  I always aim to achieve a natural look that enhances your own beauty with my filler injections.

I use a gentle technique to inject in the area with a small flexible cannula in order to minimize irritation to the surrounding tissue and prevent any injury to the area.   As an ICU nurse, I have years of specialized skill with IVs and needles, so you can trust my technique and ability to identify important structures like vessels and muscles.

If you are looking for dramatic results without the cost and downtime of surgery, check out my extremely effective treatments that combine filler, wrinkle reducer injections, and microneedling with PRP.  With a skilled eye, I balance your features, improve skin texture and tone, and give you back the natural glow of your youth.  Some of my happiest clients are those that receive multiple treatment types in one setting because they truly maximize the results!
