Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and Belotero are used to fill lines and folds in the face. In addition, dermal fillers can be used to add volume to the lips, chin, cheeks and temples creating a pleasing facial shape and reversing the signs of facial aging. The current state of the art for dermal filler treatments involves facial shaping and volumization to create youthful volume and facial contours.
Dermal filler treatments are performed by Dr. Stephen Weber in the office with minimal discomfort. The effects are seen immediately following treatment. A small amount of swelling and an occasional small bruise can occur. The benefits of dermal fillers typically last between 6 – 18 months depending upon the filler used, volume injected and your response to the treatments.
Filler treatments are often combined with Botox in order to combine the line filling and volumizing effect of fillers with the skin smoothing effect of Botox.
