Belotero® | Juvederm® | Restylane® | Radiesse®

Facial fillers made of hyaluronic acid such as Belotero®, Juvederm® and Restylane®, as well as Radiesse®, made using Calcium Hydroxylapatite, are convenient and fast acting non-surgical treatments to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles that occur during the aging process.

Facial Rejuvenation

Who can benefit from these fillers? If you’re concerned about facial lines and wrinkles, one or a combination of other injectables may be right for you. Facial fillers are a non-invasive treatment that can give you a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Hyaluronic acid facial fillers can treat:
  • Areas in and around the lips
  • Nasolabial folds (smile, laugh lines)
  • Moderate to severe facial wrinkles
  • Hollow cheeks
If you have an active skin infection or a previous allergy to any of the ingredients in these fillers, you may not be an ideal candidate for treatment. The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for facial fillers is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Barlow, board-certified plastic surgeon.

What to Expect During Your Injections

Prior to injection, a topical or local anesthetic will be applied to your face to minimize discomfort. Your face will also be cleansed with an antiseptic to reduce your risk of infection. Treatment areas will be carefully determined and marked for injection. Using a fine needle, injections will be made at each marked location, at varying levels beneath the skin. One treatment may suffice for a subtle improvement.

After Your Treatment

You can return to your normal schedule immediately after your treatment. You may experience some redness or bruising near injection sites, which can last for a few days. Swelling is also a possibility, but should resolve within a week. Any discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter medications. As swelling goes down, the results of your procedure will become more apparent. Your face may appear swollen at first, but will settle into its final appearance within 3-5 days. The final results can last 6-9 months before being naturally absorbed by your body. Routine treatments will be needed to maintain results a long lasting result.

Understanding the Risks of Facial Fillers

All risks associated with these fillers will be discussed at length prior to your procedure. Some potential complications include pain, tenderness and bruising.

"The best thing about the surgery for me was how comforting Dr. Barlow was. Getting any surgery is always nerve wracking, but anytime Dr. Barlow came in the room and would begin talking ”all of my fears would go away."
