Dermal fillers are a popular option for non-invasive facial rejuvenation due to convenience and the high degree of anti-aging effectiveness they can provide. These non-surgical treatments are an excellent choice to address the signs of aging like moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. As we age, our body decreases the production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid which play a critical role in our youthful appearance by keeping our skin tight, firm, and hydrated. Our skin begins to decline as the production of these proteins diminishes.
Dermal fillers can be used to drastically improve and smooth the appearance of the wrinkles and folds around the mouth area. Volume can be restored to facial tissues to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as create fuller, improved lip contours. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring sugar in the body. Many patients can improve age-related cosmetic concerns with these face filler treatments designed to rejuvenate facial volume and beauty.
Dermal Fillers Can:
- Correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds
- Add volume and fullness to sagging facial tissues
- Augment and enhance lip contours
- Create a more youthful, rejuvenated facial appearance
- Diminish superficial and acne scarring
- Lift eyebrows
- Fill out nose, cheeks, and jowls

Our Customized Approach
Dr. George Landis and our nurse specialist have completed advanced injectable training and participate in continuing education to ensure they are current with the most advanced products and techniques. They provide a custom approach based on your unique structure and aesthetic goals to achieve your best results possible. We provide a comprehensive menu of products, which allow our injection team to tailor their dermal filler treatments to your specific goals. Our expertise in Botox® and Dysport® treatments ensures our patients obtain their aesthetic goals with superior results in a comfortable and safe setting.
Juvederm is a smooth dermal filler gel designed to smooth away wrinkles around the nose and mouth instantly. Other facial areas that are target sites for improvement are jawline definition, marionette lines (lines around the corner of mouth), laugh lines (creases from the corner of mouth to nose), and cheeks. It is also suitable for lip augmentation and lip contour.
What to Expect
A topical numbing agent may be applied to the target site before treatment to ensure your comfort during injections. Next, we strategically inject the filler in the targeted area with a very fine needle. The solution is composed of hyaluronic acid and lidocaine, a local anesthetic to further ensure a comfortable procedure. Depending on the number of injections necessary, treatments rarely last more than 30 minutes. Because of the ease and convenience of these quick injectable treatments, our patients find it easy to fit into their busy schedules with many opting for a lunchtime treatment.
Dermal Filler Recovery
Dermal filler treatments have zero downtime, and daily activities resume immediately following treatment. Ice packs will reduce swelling and add to your comfort level. There may be some mild redness after injections, but this is rare and resolve soon after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do dermal filler results last?
Results from dermal filler injections will improve facial appearance for up to one year.
What makes our injectable fillers different?
Our fillers use soft replenishing gel fillers from the patented HYLACROSS™ technology to deliver a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid in the injectable. This advanced engineering process creates a smooth consistency gel which produces a smooth, natural skin texture. Other fillers may have a granular consistency causing lumps and uneven textures.
How quickly will I see results?
A great benefit to our dermal filler injections is that results are immediate. Most patients only need one session to achieve their cosmetic goals. However, some need multiple sessions to get the results they want.
How long does the treatment take and do I need an allergy test?
Treatments are convenient, mostly under 30 minutes and no allergy test is necessary as the product is composed of the natural hyaluronic acid sugar.
Are the injections painful?
We make our dermal filler injections quite comfortable with an anesthetic cream to numb the treatment site and lidocaine added to the filler gel to add tolerance to the injection.
What are the potential risks and side effects?
There may be some moderate redness, bruising and tenderness at the treatment site, but these will abate within a week. There is little to no downtime with most patients returning to their normal routine immediately after treatment.
