Fillers and Injectable Options

Dermal fillers, also known as wrinkle fillers, are soft tissue fillers that have been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). These products bring the skin to life, erasing wrinkles and other signs of aging – without the hassle and downtime of surgery.

As men and women strive to turn back the hand of time, facilities offering filler and injectable treatments are collectively growing.  As you come to a decision on your choice of provider, consider Dr. Pollard’s cosmetic expertise in the following areas:

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections target the areas between your eyebrows, your forehead, and your eyes, relaxing the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. If you have crow’s feet, lines around your mouth, or deep creases in your forehead, Dr. Pollard considers you a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. This treatment, which last an hour, requires no surgery – or downtime. Enjoy immediate results for up to six months.

Juvederm®

Juvederm® is a specially formulated injectable filler that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally present in your body. With time, your skin loses its HA. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and allows it to retain a youthful volume. Dr. Pollard injects Juvederm® into the skin with a fine needle, targeting deep creases, wrinkles, and fine lines. The non-invasive treatment requires less than an hour of your time. After your session, you can immediately resume your work or recreational activities. Results can last up to a year.

Restylane®

Restylane® treats wrinkles and lines and is also used to enrich the volume of cheeks and lips, without surgery. Also containing hyaluronic acid, Dr. Pollard injects the affected area. As the skin becomes more hydrated, visual enhancements will appear right away and continue to improve in a matter of days. Your session will be complete within a few minutes, will not interrupt your daily activities, and you’ll be able to enjoy these benefits for up to six months.

Perlane®

Dr. Pollard recommends Perlane®, another product containing HA, for patients who desire fuller lips or cheeks, or a more youthful appearance. Comprised of larger particles, the gel substance is more effective on severe lines and deeper creases. The treatment is non-invasive, completed in less than an hour, and doesn’t interfere with your normal schedule. Results last up to six months.

Dysport®

Dysport® effectively relaxes line-forming muscles, reducing laugh and frown lines and wrinkles. This injection only takes a few minutes and does not interfere with your work or recreation time. Ultimate cases completely erase these creases in some patients. Enjoy immediate results and full enhancement within a week, and reap the benefits for up to six months.

Sculptra®

Sculptra® targets your body’s natural ability to produce collagen, which is essential for healthy skin. With age, collagen levels decrease, and leaving us with wrinkles, lines, and skin folds. Dr. Pollard also recommends Sculptra® to increase cheek volume. Sessions don’t even require an hour of your time. This non-surgical treatment is quick, and you can immediately resume your daily duties as normal.

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is another non-surgical solution to complement your body’s natural collagen in replenishing your skin’s health. This option treats severe wrinkles and deep creases. Almost magically, Radiesse® creates a supportive wall, accomplishing a two-fold result: 1) stimulating natural collagen production and 2) reducing severe lines and folds. Enjoy a short session and immediately return to your regular schedule without interruption. Radiesse® results in long-lasting enhancement, sometimes permanently.

A non-surgical liquid facelift can be done to accomplish any of the following:

  • Gentle lift of individual (or overall) facial features
  • Reduced wrinkles, creases, line or folds
  • Restoration of natural, curved facial contours
  • A more rested, energetic look

With treatments that take less than an hour and are performed right in-office, liquid facelifts require no downtime and can be seen in just a few days. Dr. Pollard offers:

A great and easy way to refresh and update your look, dermal fillers address a multitude of skin conditions and problem areas. Each filler – from Botox® to Radiesse® – is just a quick procedure to refresh your entire look, while giving subtle yet noticeable results. Dr. Pollard has a very natural hand. If you’re considering a liquid facelift, schedule a consultation with Dr. Pollard. She can help you decide what fillers are best for you.
