Want to soften lip lines without getting puffy? No worries! We have over a dozen dermal fillers to choose from depending on whether we are trying to soften a fine line, erase a deep line, or rejuvenate aging hands, lift cheeks, or fill under eye hollows.
Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a clear gel that is formulated very similarly to your own body’s hyaluronic acid. They provide immediate results. You walk out looking and feeling better. And they stimulate collagen in the area of the injection as the product is reabsorbed, providing progressive results that generally last about a year.Whether you want to smooth deep wrinkles around the lips and mouth, replace facial volume, rejuvenate thinning lips, plump aging hands-you will have immediate results.
How does it work? Topical anesthetic medicine is applied prior to treatment. After a consultation with your provider, the product is precisely placed in area of concern. And although bruising is possible, there is much less bruising than in years past since we use cannulas to place most of our fillers. Treatments take just about 20-30 minutes depending on how many areas we are rejuvenating.
At Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center, we offer the following injectables:
Restylane | Restylane Silk | Restylane Lyft | Restylane Refyne | Restylane Defyne | Juvederm | Voluma | Volbella | Vollure | Sculptra | Radiesse
Sculptra is the product for graceful aging. Unlike other injectables that give instant results, Sculptra stimulates your own natural collagen. Want to age gracefully? Looking to make up for lost time but want to see gradual, long-lasting results rather than instant change? No one will know but you as Sculptra gradually and precisely volumizes the temples and cheeks, as well as improving deep folds and wrinkles. Sculptra is the arguably the most important injectable for maintaining the youthful V-shape of the face or correcting the upside down V.
Many clients start Sculptra in the 30s, as collagen production dramatically slows down in the 20s. One to three vials are injected per visit with repeat injections as needed. When seeking full correction, it is common to be seen 2-4 times about 4-12 weeks apart. The best results are actually 12 weeks after injections. Want to maintain how you look now? Maintaining facial volume and skin structure generally requires 1-2 vials a year. FDA-approved Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, the same material that’s been used in dissolvable sutures for more than 20 years, with results that last over two years.
How much Sculptra do I need?
Full correction: 1 vial per decade 40 years=4 vials
Moderate correction: 1/2 -1 vial per decade 40 years = 2-4 vials
Maintenance: 1-2 vials annually

Novathreads that are commonly used as a filler alternative and placed precisely to stimulate collagen or fill stubborn lines. Looped threads define the vermilion border of the lip and minimize “lipstick bleeding” without the expense of filler. They are also a safe way to fill stubborn lines between the eyes, where filler is considered unsafe. Smooth threads stimulate collagen without adding volume. Common treatment areas include crows feet, fine lip lines, and lower cheek lines.
