Dermal Fillers

The natural aging process combined with factors like sun exposure and the daily stresses of life cause us to develop wrinkles and lose fullness in our faces. Injectable fillers offer a solution to fine lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the skin, and these have become one of the most desired cosmetic treatments for rejuvenating the face. At Dr. Sciara’s practice we offer a wide variety of FDA-approved fillers to help men and women of all ages restore youth and volume in their faces. Dr. Sciara’s philosophy is to make you look rested and not overdone.

The Benefits of Injectable Fillers

  • Diminish the appearance of wrinkles and creases
  • Eliminate hollows and a “sunken in” facial appearance
  • Can enhance almost any area of the face
  • Help improve self-esteem and confidence

Types of Dermal Fillers

Juvederm XC:
Made of a type of hyaluronic acid called HYLACROSS™ gel. Adds volume to skin, especially around the nose and mouth. The Juvederm procedure is simple, painless, and requires little recovery time. Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in our bodies and absorbs 1,000 times its weight in water. When this is injected into the problem areas of the face, it adds volume to the area, smoothing out wrinkles, lines and folds

Juvederm Voluma XC:
Voluma is the newest hyaluronic acid filler from the Juvederm family of facial fillers. Voluma has a density and viscosity that provides for more structural and sculptural fill, restoring lost volume predominantly in the upper cheek and mid-cheek regions. Voluma can be expected to last for 12 months or more.

Restylane:
Made of all-natural hyaluronic acid. Commonly used to treat cheeks and nasolabial folds.

Perlane:
Made of a hyaluronic gel similar to Restylane®. Effectively adds volume to smile.
