Selecting Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers soften the appearance of facial aging for a naturally enhanced appearance. The injectable procedure can be performed during your office visit. The filler is injected into the treatment area to fill in facial folds and depressions, acne scars, smoker's lines and lip borders. The practice offers the following injectable fillers:

  • Restylane®: This hyaluronic acid filler is often used to improve the nasolabial fold area and facial creases with smaller folds.
  • Perlane®: A hyaluronic acid filler which is more highly concentrated than Restylane, Perlane significantly improves smile and frown lines, crow's feet, marionette lines, smoker's lines, lip borders, jowls, acne scars, as well as chin and cheek depressions.
  • JUVÉDERM®: Another hyaluronic acid filler, JUVÉDERM can be used to soften facial folds. Available in a variety of consistencies, it is a versatile product that may provide benefits over Restylane and Perlane in some cases.

Our treatment providers will evaluate your needs to develop the most appropriate treatment plan for you in our Tucson office. Dermal fillers may be combined with other cosmetic procedures and treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, IPL Fotofacial or facial plastic surgery.
