Many dermal fillers have been used historically to correct deep facial wrinkles and folds associated with facial aging. The currently available materials are safer and longer lasting than previously available products.

Fillers vary in their thickness, composition, and longevity of effect. We use different products in different areas of the face, including the lips, the folds around the mouth, and the cheeks. Dr. Schmidt's training in facial plastic surgery helps him decide which product is safest and best suited to the particular needs of your face.

We offer Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane.  HA based fillers add volume under the skin to smooth lines and wrinkles, plump lips and remove scars.  HA based fillers usually last from six to twelve months.  Radiesse, a calcium-based filler, is used primarily for more obvious signs of facial aging.  Radiesse rebuilds your skin's foundation and restores a more youthful look.  Larger areas may be treated for contouring in just one treatment and can last up to a year.

These treatments are done in the office with a topical numbing cream. Numbing medicine is often mixed into the fillers as well for a more comfortable experience.  Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment.
