About Injectable Fillers
Injectable fillers are cutting-edge treatments that can help keep skin looking younger by restoring lost volume and filling-in deeper lines and furrows.
The face is often the first area of the body to show signs of aging. Excessive sun exposure, the effects of gravity and your individual genetics of how you age all play a part in the aging process. The aging process reduces the skin’s ability to “recover” from ongoing stresses, resulting in a loss of volume and contour.

Injectable filler treatment options have grown as more products have become available. We now have so many options to treat various areas of the face in order to best target each specific treatment area. A more comprehensive rejuvenation is referred to as a Liquid Facelift, providing facial rejuvenation at various parts of the face concurrently. These treatments typically involve little to no downtime. They are performed quickly and easily in our comfortable and private office setting and are an excellent option for individuals seeking rejuvenation utilizing a less invasive procedure.
All of our Juvéderm XC products are FDA approved and can produce results that are smooth and natural-looking. The injections contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that adds volume and smoothes wrinkles by filling and hydrating facial lines and tissues. Juvéderm XC can diminish the appearance of “smile lines” and nasolabial folds, the deep wrinkles that run from the nose to the mouth.
Juvéderm includes an entire line of injectable hyaluronic acid-based fillers. Each of them is formulated slightly differently to meet the needs of various specific areas.
Juvéderm Voluma is thicker and denser than the classic Juvéderm formula, making it appropriate to provide high volume in regions such as cheeks and midface. Other uses of Juvederm Voluma which have become increasingly popular include treatment to the temples as well as to the chin. Chin augmentation with Juvederm Voluma has exploded in popularity, which when combined with contouring and shaping of the jawline, can produce profound results. The results of Juvéderm Voluma are long-lasting and typically last up to two years.
Common facial expressions like laughing and smiling will leave wrinkles as we age. Juvéderm Vollure is an injectable filler that is designed to smooth moderate to severe nasolabial folds or deeper creases around the nose and mouth. While not as dense as Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Vollure is still an extremely versatile filler treatment and can be used on many areas of the face while do not require as much pure volume restoration.
Juvéderm Volbella is an FDA-approved version of Juvederm which is the opposite of Voluma – Volbella is more thin and soft, making this a perfect product to produce a more subtle result in various areas. It is designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also known as perioral rhytids or perioral lines, and these areas have become the most popular use of Volbella. For those seeking an enhancement of their lips without looking like they had filler, Juvederm Volbella is the perfect option. Volbella can add volume to the tear trough area and hollowing which can occur under the eyes.
Radiesse is an injectable facial filler that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Designed for safety, durability and longevity, Radiesse is composed of micron-sized calcium-based particles in a water-based gel carrier. These particles form a scaffold around which the body generates new collagen, a critical protein that ensures the skin’s elasticity and strength. As we age, collagen production slows, which can lead to volume loss in the skin and development of deeper lines and contours.
Is Radiesse Better than Juvéderm?
Radiesse and Juvéderm are both injectable fillers that offer temporary enhancement of facial volume and contours as an alternative to more invasive surgical procedures. They each have a unique formulation that may affect the tissues differently. Juvéderm products are hyaluronic acid based substances while Radiesse consists of a different material which is calcium based. One major difference is that hyaluronic acid based fillers can easily be dissolved if an area is overfilled or irregular in any way. Radiesse cannot easily be dissolved should there be any dissatisfaction with your results.
Dr. Glatt is extremely well-versed in the use of Restylane, as he is with all of the latest injectable fillers. Similar to Juvederm, Restylane has become a family of fillers all based on a hyaluronic acid product. Restylane products can treat fine lines, reduce the appearance of deeper wrinkles and can add significant facial volume, similar to Juvederm products. All Restylane products are made out of hyaluronic acid-based (HA), which is a natural substance found in the skin and body. It helps keep the skin lubricated and moisturized. When injected into facial tissues, the hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules that fill, hydrate and smooth the treatment area.
Should You Massage Restylane?
You should typically avoid touching the injection site for one week. For the safest recovery and most enduring results, please follow all of your individual aftercare instructions provided.
If you are tired of your facial wrinkles, Belotero is a perfect wrinkle-fighting solution. It is a popular injectable filler that delivers natural-looking rejuvenation. As another HA-based filler option, Belotero most effectively treats finer lines and can be placed closer to the surface of the skin. It is most commonly used to treat finer perioral wrinkles or the tear troughs under the eyes. By binding to water, the properties of this unique filler allow it to integrate into your skin.
How long does Belotero filler last?
Belotero is a temporary filler that produces results which may last up to six months or more. Your results will depend on the volume of your injection and its anatomical area. In regions that experience a lot of movement due to eating, talking and smiling, the product may not last as long as it might in other, less active areas such as under the eye.
At your confidential consultation, we will carefully examine your skin tone and facial contours. Our expert nurse injector Katelyn Peterpaul will evaluate your skin as well as the contours of your face while she performs a full analysis of your facial structure.

The immediate effect of injectable fillers is evident. When the product is first injected, the gel spreads through the skin, smoothing out folds and wrinkles or filling volume as it goes. While results are immediately apparent, the true effect takes several weeks to fully appreciate.
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are manufactured using chemicals that naturally occur in your body. HA-based fillers mimic the HA already present in your skin and soft tissues. Hyaluronic acid provides structure and moisture to the epidermis. It also plays an important role in healing and cushioning your cells. It is essentially what makes one’s skin feel soft and compressible. Once it is injected inside your skin, it will supplement and enhance your naturally occurring hyaluronic acid.
