Dermal Fillers

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.
