Facial Filler Injection

Sun exposure, stress, hormonal changes and aging can all have an impact on your skin’s appearance. Over time, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and a loss of volume and elasticity.

Dermal fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already present in the human body that plays an important role in giving firmness and volume to the skin and lips. Hyaluronic acid – based injectable fillers, such as Juvederm can help achieve this.

Juvederm injections provide up to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is used to treat:

• Cheeks  – restoring facial volume that was lost due to aging or weight loss

• Chin – re-contour the chin by adding definition and firmness

• Lips – create full-looking lips

• Smile lines  – Fill the lines that run from the side of your nose down to the corners of your upper lip

• Marionette Lines – Fill the vertical lines and descends below the corners of the mouth

Dermal fillers offer the benefit of immediately visible results; however, these results are not permanent, and periodic follow-up treatments must be conducted in order to maintain the results. Botox and other skin rejuvenation treatments are often used in conjunction with dermal fillers.

Natural-looking results can only be achieved by an experienced injector. The face is a complex anatomic structure. Understanding the underlying vascular anatomy is essential for safety.  The key to a safe result is an expert knowledge of the facial anatomy. Your assessment and treatment will be performed by Dr. Menesi, a board certified plastic surgeon, who have performed thousands of surgical and non surgical facial treatments. His goal is to achieve a natural looking face, just enough to make people wonder.

Recovering from most dermal filler injections requires little to no downtime. Most procedures allow you to return immediately to work or other daily activities, although it is advisable that patients try to avoid strenuous activity during the first few days.
