Injectable Dermal Fillers
Lift, smooth and plump with injectables!
Dermal fillers are fabulous for adding volume and shape to cheeks, lips, tear troughs, marionette lines, and smile lines. By adding volume, you get the effect of ‘Lifting” your face and creating the heart-shaped face of youth. These fillers are made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume.
Jennifer works with and offers a variety of fillers to help create a natural look. Fillers are selected based on the patient’s needs and where the filler will be placed. It is important to have an experienced injector who is familiar with the properties of each filler to perform your treatment. Jennifer has been injecting patients and teaching other injectors how to inject for over 14 years.
For areas that need a more substantial or “thicker” filler, we use RHA 3 & 4, Restylane Lyft & Contour, Juvederm Voluma and Radiesse. These fillers allow us to “lift” and create volume in your mid face and lower face.
For smile lines, lips and areas that need a softer product to smooth your lines, we use RHA 2, Restylane Classic, RHA 2&3, Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Vollure. For more dynamic lines that occur when you smile or have facial expressions, we use a more” stretchy” filler like Restylane Defyne or Refyne.
For areas with superficial lines around the lips and crows feet we can use very soft fillers like Restylane Silk, Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Kysse.

FAQ's About Dermal Fillers
What is the treatment experience like?
Your treatment begins with Jennifer taking your medical history and providing a facial analysis. Be prepared to discuss your aesthetic areas of concern. This is not a surgical treatment. Actual treatment with dermal fillers can take 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on which area of your face is being treated.
When will I see results?
Unlike neuromodulators like Botox which take several days to begin working, with dermal fillers, you will see results immediately/instantly.
Results may last one year to two years, with optimal treatment and depending on the formula used. Please read each product description to see how long results last with each formula, based on what was observed in clinical studies.
What are some of the side effects of dermal fillers?
The most commonly reported side effects with dermal fillers are injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration, and itching. You will typically swell in the area you were injected for 48 to 72 hours. You also may experience some uneven swelling which will dissipate over the next 2 weeks. Bruising is a common side effect but resolves without a problem in 5 to 7 days.
