Laughter and smiles are a welcome part of life, but many people would rather do without the lines and wrinkles that all those good times can leave behind. Foothills Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery offers JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and other injectable dermal fillers in Tucson to soften lines on the face, create more youthful lips and facial contours, and even smooth the appearance of depressed scars. We strive to restore a more youthful look to your face avoiding any unnatural appearance. These simple treatments can significantly improve your facial appearance without the need for surgery.
If you live in Tucson, Green Valley, Sierra Vista, Saddlebrooke, Sahuarita, or other nearby cities, you can learn more about facial fillers and how they can improve your look when you request a consultation online or call (520) 731-1110.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
The remarkable popularity of dermal fillers can be attributed to their effectiveness and versatility. They aren’t just for lines and folds. At our practice, we use fillers to add youthful volume in areas such as the cheeks and lips. Lip fillers can also be used to create symmetry and enhance the border of the mouth. Popular filler treatment concerns include:
Women and men visit us for a naturally enhanced appearance. The injectable procedure is performed in our office at your appointment.
Our practice offers the following injectable fillers:
Our providers often recommend combining dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic in what is known as a non-surgical facelift or “liquid facelift.” This treatment delivers both the volume-boosting effects of fillers with the wrinkle-smoothing benefits of BOTOX to address many of the most common aging concerns in a single session. While this may not replace a surgical facelift for all candidates, it works well for those with early signs of aging who aren’t quite ready for surgery. It’s less invasive, poses a lower risk, and requires less downtime than a surgical facelift, although the results are temporary.
Lip filler injections are an excellent way to plump up and define the lips; they do not bring the top lip closer to the nose as with a lip lift (see patient photos). Many patients benefit from a combination of these procedures. If you want fuller lips, lip augmentation with dermal fillers is likely the best option.
Our board-certified providers 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, an IPL Photofacial, or facial plastic surgery.

During your consultation, you will have access to many before and after photos so you can get a better sense of the instantaneous results our patients achieve when they choose injectable fillers. You will also learn about alternatives to fillers such as the fat transfer procedure and lip lift surgery. All of your questions will be answered so that you can make a smart decision. If you decide to have an injectable treatment, it can be administered during your appointment. If you are considering skin care and facial cosmetic surgery, Dr. Olson and Dr. Orlick will work together to develop your treatment plan.
Newer injectable fillers contain lidocaine to greatly decrease the discomfort of the treatment; additionally, we apply a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. The procedure is completed in roughly 15 minutes so any discomfort you may experience is minimal, particularly when compared to the benefits. After your treatment bruising and swelling is generally minor. You can enjoy beautiful results immediately.
Depending on the treatment area and the filler used, results can last from approximately 6 months up to 2 years. Your provider will discuss this with you as part of your treatment plan.
When used under the supervision of a board-certified dermatologist, injectable dermal fillers are very safe. The fillers we use are made from hyaluronic acid (HA)—a synthetic version of a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It is biocompatible and not associated with allergic reactions. These fillers are also reversible, so they can be immediately dissolved if the need arises.
