Injectable Fillers for the Face and Lips
There are numerous facial injectable products available that can be used to restore facial volume, lost lip volume and fill out wrinkled or uneven areas of the face. SkinSmart Dermatology® offers the latest fillers available. For the safety of her patients, Dr. Elizabeth Callahan is the only one who will inject fillers, and she uses only FDA-approved products, including RADIESSE®, BELOTERO BALANCE®, JUVEDERM®, Sculptra®, Restylane® and Restylane® Silk for her Sarasota patients. These fillers have demonstrated predictable results, as well as minimal bruising, swelling and redness after treatment.
When it comes to healthy, beautiful skin, price should not be your main consideration. The skill and experience of your injector should be your top priority! At SkinSmart Dermatology®, your skin is our only business! Request a cosmetic consultation or call our office in Sarasota at 941.308.7546 ext. 7330.
The Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Injectable fillers are affordable, non-invasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery and offer an immediate difference in your appearance. A specialist in injectable treatments, Dr. Callahan is considered the top injector on the West Coast of Florida. At SkinSmart Dermatology, we use injectable fillers to provide a variety of improvements including:
- Smoothing wrinkles, lines and folds
- Shaping facial contours such as the cheeks and jawline
- Restoring volume and fullness to the skin
- Sculpting thin lips and filling in lip lines
- Plumping lips that have lost volume
The appropriate filler is unique to each patient and depends on the location and depth of the area to be filled. During a cosmetic consultation, we recommend the dermal filler or fillers that can help our patients achieve their aesthetic goals. We may suggest BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® treatments instead of, or in addition to, fillers.
Our Injectable Fillers
Results from dermal filler treatments are natural-looking and provide immediate gratification. Fillers below are composed of naturally occurring substances and produce impressive results.
Restylane®, Restylane Silk, Restylane LYFT, JUVEDERM®, JUVEDERM VOLUMA®, and BELOTERO BALANCE® are composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found throughout the body. While each HA filler has its own unique properties, most work by replacing lost volume and stimulating collagen production in the skin. Many improve the moisture content of the skin as well. During your cosmetic consultation, your desired results and current skin condition will be discussed in-depth with our providers to determine the best filler for your specific situation. We may even suggest several different fillers depending on your unique needs and desires.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler contains calcium-based microspheres that upon injection immediately provide the volume and lift needed to diminish signs of aging. This filler acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of the filler.
“Dear Dr. Callahan, I had Radiesse injections in my cheeks on September 12. I am amazed at how natural my cheeks look. It has made quite a difference in my facial structure. You are an artist with a needle. Sincerely yours,” – Barbara
Dr. Callahan personally performs all injectable treatments. Her advanced fellowship training in dermatologic surgery, extensive education and knowledge of facial musculature ensure the best possible results. Using a fine needle or thin cannula, the filler is injected directly into the area being treated. Most of our fillers provide instant results after a single treatment.
Dermal Filler Recovery & Results
One of the greatest rewards of our dermal filler treatments is that results are immediate. Depending on your specific skin type and condition, you may experience minor and temporary swelling or bruising after some treatments. Usually you can return to normal activities looking more refreshed, with little to no downtime.
