What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers help reduce facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. Hyaluronic acid is a substance which is found naturally occurring in the skin, which diminishes with aging causing the skin to lose it’s volume and develop wrinkles and folds.
Restylane and Juvederm are formulations of hyaluronic acid, which can be injected into the skin to restore volume and reduce these signs of aging.

Types of Injectable Fillers
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are three neurotoxins Dr. Silverman offers. When these neurotoxins are injected into the small muscles of the face, it can stop the activity of the muscles for a given period of time. Result typically last three to four months.
Restylane filler is designed to plump the skin beneath lines and wrinkles, smoothing them out and making them less noticeable.
Radiesse provides immediate volume and also stimulates the body to produce it’s own collagen. Depending on the situation, results can last up to a year and even longer in some situations.
Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It stimulates collagen to allow for skin thickening, improvement of folds or sunken areas. It also helps to mask fat loss in the face.
