No More Lines, No More Wrinkles*

Fillers are very versatile as they can remove wrinkles, soften lines and creases, improve the appearance of acne scars and produce that sexy movie star pout.*

Made of stabilized hyaluronic acid, fillers are a natural component of the skin and the second largest next to collagen. Hyaluronic acid holds 1000 times its own weight in water to help restore volume to the treated area.

  • Avoid excessive alcohol consumption
  • Do not excessively manipulate the treated area for 4 to 5 hours following the treatment

New Trends In Applying Fillers (Cheek Enhancement & Volume Restoration)

The times have changed. We used to just remove nasolabial folds or wrinkles with dermal fillers. Now we approach patient’s face holistically by identifying all problems relating to aging, including volume loss and movement of facial fat pads inferiorly. Therefore, an entirely new approach for modern face rejuvenation includes volume restoration. Deep placement of volumizing dermal fillers will contribute to the lifting effect of jowls, nasolabial folds, and mouth corners.*

Cheek enhancement will add to a more youthful and attractive  appearance, and light reflection on the face will reveal a more rejuvenated look after the volume has been replaced.* Studies have also shown that men and women prefer a partner with prominent and broad cheekbones. Many younger women now also request cheek augmentation.
