Facial Filler Testimonial

Many areas of the face can be treated, with some remarkable results. Some fillers work well in certain areas, but not in others.
ACHIEVE NATURAL, KISSABLE IDEAL LIPS
The emphasis is on NATURAL. Many patients would like a lip augmentation, but are afraid of looking fake. Dr. Greene defines and augments lips to give women the natural, full lips they desire.
ELIMINATE SMILES LINES AND REJUVENATE THE LOWER FACE
This is the #1 reason patients come to Dr. Greene for fillers. A unique approach to the lower face helps patients achieve long-lasting, rejuvenating results.
Few physicians inject fillers around the eyes, as this area demands a high level of skill. Shadows between the eyelid and cheek can make people look tired. Fillers can be an effective solution.
THE LIQUID FACELIFT ALTERNATIVE TO SURGERY
As people age, the cheek tissues drop. Facial fillers can be used in a number of ways to re-create the high cheekbone. While it demands an artistic touch, it can create a powerful rejuvenation of the midface.
CHIN AUGMENTATION WITHOUT THE IMPLANT
A recessed chin can create an imbalance with the nose and the jawline. Aging also leads to heavy cheeks and poorly defined jawlines. Fillers can be used to sculpt and augment this area, creating a stronger chin and jawline.
FACIAL FILLERS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS JUVEDERM?
Juvederm is a facial filler made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps to bind water to cells. Juvederm can be used in most areas of the face, and is an excellent choice for lip augmentation and treatment of the lower face.
WHAT IS RESTYLANE?
Like Juvederm, Restylane is comprised of hyaluronic acid gel. Restylane is often used to treat facial wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds. Restylane can also be used to augment the lips and to correct hollowness in the tear trough below the eyes.
WHAT IS RADIESSE?
Radiesse is an injectable filler made up of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) suspended in a gel. CaHA is a material that is found naturally in teeth and bone. Radiesse can be used to treat deep facial lines and wrinkles. It is also an excellent filler to add volume to areas such as the cheeks and jaw.
WHAT IS SCULPTRA?
Sculptra is more of a volumizer than a filler. The product is placed into the facial tissues to stimulate production of collagen. It typically requires multiple treatments over a period of weeks, but is capable of producing dramatic results. Sculptra is a good choice for patients who have lost volume in their face and wish to restore a more youthful contour.
HOW LONG SHOULD I EXPECT THE RESULTS TO LAST AFTER A FILLER INJECTION?
While results can vary, Restylane and Juvederm may last six to twelve months. Perlane may last up to one year. Radiesse and Sculptra results may last up to two years. The duration of filler correction depends on the type of filler, the facial area treated, the injection technique, and the rate that the patient ‘s tissues break down the filler.
