In case you aren’t aware, fillers are one of today’s most effective non-surgical methods for treating many signs of aging. This injectable treatment is different from Botox because it doesn’t relax facial muscles to smooth wrinkles. Instead, as the name implies, fillers are used to fill wrinkles, creases and folds — and to plump up the skin to return it to a more youthful contour.

RestylaneMade from hyaluronic acid, Restylane binds to the body’s natural stores of water to plump the skin and create a smoother, more youthful appearance. Restylane is often used to treat wrinkles and creases around the mouth and lips, and under and around the eyes.
Restylane LyftDesigned for more pronounced facial folds and wrinkles, Restylane Lyft is used on the sides of the mouth, and it is also popular for lip augmentation, facial depressions and facial scarring.
Juvederm VolumaAlso made from hyaluronic acid, Juvederm plumps up the skin to help restore volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, including those around the mouth, nose and on the forehead.
Juvederm UltraUsed to correct moderately deep facial wrinkles and to add fullness to the lips
Juvederm XCA denser formula that can help improve the appearance of deeper facial folds
RadiesseThis long-lasting filler uses unique, calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. When injected under the skin, it works to not only smooth wrinkles, but also to stimulate the skin’s own production of collagen.
Fillers plus Botox (or Dysport or Xeomin) go well togetherFillers are often used in conjunction with Botox to enhance overall results. Botox paralyzes the underlying facial muscle so that lines and wrinkles can relax, while fillers plump the skin to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Together they can provide effective and subtle improvement in appearance.
