What are non-Hyaluronic Fillers?
Radiesse and Sculptra are non-hyaluronic fillers that are used when the goal is to create more structure and improve a significant amount of volume loss in the face.

How do Fillers work?
The injection of fillers into the skin replace volume lost due to natural aging. Fillers restore and lift the face. They may be used to promote a natural and youthful appearance.
How are Fillers Injected?
Patients can expect to come into the office one hour before their scheduled appointment time for filler. A topical lidocaine numbing cream is applied prior to the procedure to minimize any potential discomfort.
The injections typically take between fifteen and thirty minutes, depending on the area being treated and how much filler is being injected. Patients can expect to ice after the procedure to minimize swelling. Results are immediate and downtime is minimal. Additionally, the majority of filler that we offer in our office contains lidocaine, reducing discomfort during injection.
