Facial aging leads to the loss in fat pads and bone structure. This leads to a change in the shape and contour of the overlying skin causing lines to appear.
Dermal fillers are injected to not only restore the natural contour and fullness of the face but also help to hydrate the skin. How? They contain hyaluronic acid, which binds with water, resulting in a hydrated and natural look. Results typically last 6 months to 2 years depending on filler amount and type.
Dermal fillers can be injected into the cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionnette lines and lips.
We will discuss areas of concern and come up with a plan to help you decide if fillers will help you achieve your goals. What can dermal fillers accomplish?
- restore volume loss
- reduce fine lines, creases and wrinkles
- restore fullness to ear lobes
- hydrate thin lips
- lip augmentation
Cost per syringe $650

Radiesse® is a dermal filler approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial folds
and wrinkles. It’s main purpose is to treat wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose
and to address fat loss. It is long lasting and contours, lifts and volumizes. In addition to
these properties Radiesse® is unique in that it helps the skin develop new collagen.
Radiesse® is not only FDA approved for facial corrections, but also for correcting volume
loss in hands. Radiesse® is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite particles in a water gel.
The gel creates a structure that mimics connective tissue. The calcium hydroxyapatite
particles stimulate the body’s collagen, leading to a firmer and more youthful appearance.
Hyperdilute Radiesse® is Radiesse® reconstituted with a mixture of saline and lidocaine.
It is not used for volumizing but for its property of building the skin’s natural collagen
production. It can be placed in the face, neck, buttocks, décolletage, abdomen, knees and
hands. Typically two treatments are done approximately 6 weeks apart.
What are the side effects of Radiesse (R) and Hyperdilute Radiesse(R)?
The side effects are usually transient and mild.
