We offer facial filler injections, such as Juvederm and Restylane, for rejuvenation and the treatment of wrinkles. These skin fillers are a form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. Injection of facial fillers for wrinkles and volumizing is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the United States. In the facial filler injection procedure, the Juvederm or Restylane material is injected into areas that require volume enhancement. This can be a specific wrinkle or defect, or the entire mid-face to restore the rounded contours of youth. The lips are commonly treated with skin fillers to restore volume lost to aging and create a fuller lip.
The wrinkles around the mouth and nose (nasolabial fold), the mid-face (cheeks), and lips are commonly treated, but other areas and defects can be treated as well. The results of these skin filler injections are not permanent and must be repeated periodically to maintain the rejuvenating effect. Skin filler injections are done with a fine needle. Some skin fillers contain anesthetic, while for others a topical anesthetic agent or ice may be applied first to the skin for numbing. Skin filler injections are an excellent complement to Botox for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles, and these treatments are often performed together. At SOMA Skin & Laser, all skin filler injections are performed by a board-certified dermatologist.
