The best filler option for you depends on several different factors related to your skin type and the specific concerns you'd like to treat. Your injector will examine your face and evaluate your concerns, making careful recommendations that are likely to create the results you want.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most diverse category, available in a variety of viscosities and formulations. Typically, these are the go-to products for filling in lines around the nose and mouth and adding volume to the lips. Thinner formulations of these products are usually best for fine lines. Thicker formulations can be used to add volume to the cheeks.
Collagen stimulators like Sculptra Aesthetic and RADIESSE add immediate volume and encourage collagen development in the treated area. Collagen stimulators are good options for adding definition to areas like the cheeks or jawline.
Both types of injectables are typically used to reduce wrinkles and fade certain signs of aging, but they work in different ways. While fillers are used to add volume to wrinkles and sunken areas, the active ingredient in BOTOX reduces muscle movement that causes certain types of wrinkles, including crow's feet.
The cost of your filler treatment varies based on which areas you'd like to address. Fillers are generally priced by the syringe, and different areas of the face typically require a different number of syringes. During your consultation, we'll offer you an estimate of the cost of your procedure, so you can make an informed decision.
Injections with fillers don't typically hurt any more than other types of injections. We use very fine needles to complete the procedure, and most injectable products are formulated with lidocaine to further reduce discomfort.
