Dermal fillers are injectables used to add volume and hydration and to smooth away wrinkles and folds.
Dr. Christian uses them to restore lost volume in the cheeks and lips; to correct marionette lines, “parentheses” around the mouth, “smokers lines”, deep wrinkles in the skin; and to correct sagging.
Dr. Christian uses longer-lasting hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, Voluma®, Belotero®, Silk®, and Lift®, as well as Radiesse®, a filler that builds collagen with prolonged use.
What to Expect
During the procedure, Dr. Christian uses a thin needle to inject a small amount of dermal filler in the area that needs correction.
For most patients, the procedure causes no more than minimal discomfort. Dr. Christian uses a variety of approaches to minimize discomfort including applying a topical numbing cream at the site of the injection as well as injecting a numbing agent along with the facial filler.
