Fillers are injectable products that restore volume to facial areas, improve deep lines or wrinkles and gives a pleasing definition to areas of the face. Dr. Chandran uses a series of products called Juvederm®. Juvederm® is made from hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring sugar in your body. It helps retain water under the skin where it is injected to give the desired results. It is safe and effective and does not require skin testing because it occurs naturally in the body. It can also stimulate the production of collagen.
Botox® and Juvederm® injections typically take 15 – 30 min to perform depending on the number of areas and require no recovery time. Patients can usually resume their normal activity immediately afterwards.
