As you age, collagen breaks down and causes your skin to lose volume and elasticity. This results in sagging, creases, and the loss of youthful facial contours. The subcutaneous fat atrophies decreasing in volume. Injectable fillers can replace lost volume and help to smooth lines and wrinkles for a rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Joseph Shovlin is a highly accomplished oculofacial plastic surgeon; his thorough knowledge of the structures of the face makes him especially qualified to perform dermal filler injections.

Dr. Shovlin offers his patients the latest in dermal filler options, for optimal safety and results.
Restylane is a popular and proven dermal filler that is composed of hyaluronic acid, a synthetic version of a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It is biocompatible and biodegradable, meaning that it is safe for the body, and the body will naturally eliminate it over time. Restylane is FDA approved for the treatment of nasolabial folds, but is also used to enhance the lips, smooth forehead lines, and fill tear troughs beneath the eyes. There is no allergy pre-testing required with Restylane, and results typically last up to 6 months or longer.
JUVÉDERM XC is also a hyaluronic acid filler that is preferred for some treatments due to its smooth consistency and enhanced comfort. JUVÉDERM XC is infused with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to make injections more comfortable for the patient. It is commonly used for treatment of nasolabial folds or smile lines around the mouth, but Dr. Shovlin may use it to enhance facial contours or fill wrinkles in other areas as well. JUVÉDERM results typically last 6 to 9 months or longer.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an innovative dermal filler product composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that is biocompatible and biodegradable and has been safely used for medical purposes for years. It works by replacing lost collagen through a gradual treatment process. As collagen production is stimulated, results emerge over a period of several weeks or months. Treatment with Sculptra Aesthetic typically involves 3 injection sessions spaced over several months, with ultimate results that can last up to 2 years.
Dr. Shovlin will listen carefully to your goals and concerns, and will thoroughly discuss all of your dermal filler options. He will work with you to develop the best approach to achieving your vision of beauty.
