The visible signs of facial aging occur over time as a result of manz factors including sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle. One of the earliest signs of aging is a loss of facial fullness and the development of expression lines - wrinkles that appear as a result of the repeated movement of facial muscles. Softening of these facial lines and creases, and the restoration of volume and fullness in the face can often be achieved non-surgically through treatment with injectable fillers.
If you wish to enhance or restore facial contours, or reduce the appearance of lines and creases, injection therapy with soft tissue fillers may be right for you. Injectable fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and, in some cases, improve the appearance of recessed scars.
The result is a smoother, fuller and more youthful facial appearance.
This brochure presents an overview of soft tissue augmentation with injectable fillers. The best way to learn how this type of therapy can help fulfill your personal goals for facial rejuvenation is a consultation with a plastic surgeon.

You may experience temporary numbness, redness, swelling and minor bruising at the injection sites. These can be alleviated with topical icing and should resolve within a few days. The results of your treatment are visible immediately; however, they will lessen over time as fillers are absorbed
