Are Fillers Right for Me?

Aging takes a toll on your skin. Gravity, exposure to the sun and pollutants, and genetics cause lines and wrinkles to form around your eyes and mouth. As you age, you produce less of the compounds — hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin — that help you skin look hydrated and smooth. Your cheeks start to look more gaunt and your lips thin.

Dermal fillers are a noninvasive answer to these common concerns. The injectable substances give your skin a natural lift, improved volume, and greater smoothness. At Signature Skin Care, our team, under the director of Gina L. Ressler, MD, offers a comprehensive array of fillers that address many of your aging concerns. These include:

  • Bellafill®
  • Juvéderm®
  • Restylane®
  • Radiesse®

Our experts determine which fillers are best for your concerns and apply them in a way that gives you safe, effective, and natural results. Dermal fillers are for just about anyone who wants to ease the signs of aging.
Dermal fillers address a wide variety of aging concerns

Dermal fillers aren’t just for wrinkle reduction. Fillers can:

  • Smooth under-eye circles
  • Lift your cheekbones
  • Smooth lip lines and nasolabial folds
  • Rejuvenate your hands
  • Volumize your lips

Discuss your specific concerns with us. We can help you understand how dermal fillers can help you achieve the look you desire. And if fillers alone aren’t enough, we may combine them with injectable wrinkle reducers such as Botox® or Xeomin®.

Dermal fillers provide a subtle change to your look so people will notice you look brighter and more radiant, but won’t immediately think you’ve had a procedure done.

Natural and synthetic options

Juvéderm and Restylane are two of the multiple options of fillers we offer at Signature Skin Care that contain hyaluronic acid, a compound your skin produces plentifully in your youth. This substance keeps your skin looking hydrated and plump.

Injections of fillers that include this compound restore your more youthful appearance naturally for six months or longer, depending on the exact formula we use, your body’s personal response, and the area treated.

Other fillers that we offer at Signature Skin Care use alternative, revolutionary approaches to address your skin concerns. For example, Bellafill is composed of a collagen base and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres.

When we inject Bellafill, your body absorbs the collagen and the microspheres remain in place. Your body produces more collagen that takes the place of the microspheres, which dissolve naturally with time.

Dr. Ressler is an expert at evaluating your facial structure and skin concerns to determine which fillers are best for your particular needs. She can use them singularly or in combination, as some formulas are better for certain areas.

For example, Juvéderm Vollure™ is specially formulated to address parentheses lines around the nose and mouth while Juvéderm Volluma™ is best for the cheek area.

General considerations for fillers

If you decide dermal fillers are right for you, we do a comprehensive exam and review of your health history to make sure you’re physically healthy before administering the injections. Smoking inhibits your results and healing, so quit before getting treatment.

We also review with you exactly what results to expect from the filler treatment so you have realistic expectations. Fillers can’t correct significant skin laxity, eye bags, or hooded lids, for example. We also explain how to care for your skin after dermal fillers and into the future so you maximize your results and look your absolute best.
