Dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juviderm, are natural hyaluronic gel which when injected into the skin, they “fill” skin folds and wrinkles with volume. When injected in the lip, they subtly plump the mouth, define its borders and fill out vertical smoker’s lines around the lip area.
Treatment lasts about 5-6 months at which point you will see the results slowly go away. As with any non-surgical aesthetic procedure, the skill of the physician delivering the treatment is paramount so why not begin your personalized treatment by giving our office a call to schedule a FREE Consultation today!

Some areas that can be treated include:
The treatment itself takes about 30 to 60 minutes, and you can return to your normal activity after that. Results last 5-6 months.
You may need treatment every 5-6 months. Results depends on the the initial correction. If at one point you had a full treatment with the appropriate amount of syringes needed, then treatment may last longer.
Treatments are safe as natural substance is injected and there is no prior testing needed like the older bovine products. Some patient may require topical anesthesia or local nerve block. Common side effects include swelling and bruising after the procedure.
You do not need any specific preparation before the procedure. You must not take any aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication. If you have a history of shingles or cold sore, you must let your physician know.
You need to apply the ice after the procedure. Generally there is mild swelling and minimal bruising which could be covered with the makeup.
