Facial Fillers

Restores skin volume

Skin naturally loses elasticity and volume as we age, causing the skin to sag. Facial fillers are injectables that are used to restore facial volume and improve overall appearance.

Dr. Clinton uses them to correct marionette lines, downturns or “parentheses” around the mouth, deep wrinkles in the skin, and to diminish fine lines/wrinkles. They also can be used to correct deep frown lines on the forehead or around the eyes, or to restore volume in the lips.

Dr. Clinton uses longer-lasting hyaluronic acid facial fillers, such as Restylane® and Juvederm™, Perlane and Radiesse, which encourage your skin’s own collagen production with continued use.

These facial fillers not only encourage your skin’s own collagen production, they also plump up, hydrate and fill in wherever volume has been lost.

Because we believe in natural-looking, full-volume correction, Dr. Clinton is often able to use less filler over time by administering touch-up injections every 6 to 9 months.

How it Works/What To Expect

During the procedure, Dr. Clinton uses a thin needle to inject a small amount of facial filler just under the skin in the area that needs correction.

For most patients, the procedure causes no more than minimal discomfort. In fact, patients who previously have found the procedure painful often find the experience much more pleasurable in our office.

Dr. Clinton is at the highest level of injectors for facial fillers, making her more skilled than most. Patients choose facial fillers over surgical treatments because they are less expensive, provide immediate results and have limited downtime.

Dr. Clinton uses a variety of approaches to minimize discomfort some of which include applying a topical numbing cream at the site of the injection, as well as injecting a numbing agent along with the facial filler.

Expect mild redness and swelling for the first few hours following the procedure.
