What are facial fillers?
Fillers are safe gel-like compounds that minimize wrinkles and add volume. Our fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance in the skin that delivers nutrients and helps the skin retain moisture.
With aging, lines and wrinkles form between the nose and mouth (the parentheses), downward from the corner of the mouth (marionette lines), and around the mouth (smoker’s lines). In addition the cheeks shift downward and lips become thinner. Fillers can easily correct all of these problems.
Which fillers do you use?
Our newest filler, Voluma, has revolutionized the world of fillers. It is given over the cheekbones and acts to subtly lift the cheeks back up to their original contour. In addition to restoring the natural curve of the cheek, the volume helps to decrease lines elsewhere. And as a final bonus, Voluma lasts two years.
We also offer Juvederm, the best selling filler in the country due to the wonderful results it gives. Juvederm is used to eliminate lines on the face and also to restore beautiful fullness to the lips. It lasts about a year, but even after the filler is gone you will retain the new collagen which has formed around it.
How are fillers given?
Fillers are injected with a tiny needle and contain the numbing medicine Lidocaine to minimize discomfort. The area is then gently massaged to ensure a natural look and feel.
When will I see results?
Results are visible immediately and there is no downtime to the treatment.
Why should I come to Enhance for fillers?
Everyone has seen examples of overdone fillers, where people look weird rather than wonderful. Dr. Meyers is one of the best injectors in the area, and goes slowly, with feedback from you during the treatment. She is unusually talented at achieving a natural look, and patients come from long distances to see her. New patients are usually amazed at the improvement, and thrilled to look so much better. A typical comment is, “This is how I looked 10 years ago!”
