Dermal fillers are smooth consistency injectable gels made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in your skin.  Dermal fillers can diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, smile lines and peri-oral/vertical lip lines.  Dr. Shaw also uses dermal fillers to rebuild cheekbones, correct frown or "marionette" lines, fill dark undereye circles and augment lips for a fuller, softer and more symmetric appearance. Most dermal fillers are FDA-approved to last up 9-18 months.


The dermal fillers Dr. Shaw offers are: Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Plus, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Lyft, Belotero and Radiesse.


Dr. Shaw will discuss your options with you for dealing with facial lines, wrinkles, folds and/or lip augmentation.  She will help you understand the pros and cons of each treatment and make recommendations to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.  Before your procedure begins, a topical anesthetic cream may be used on the areas to be treated.  With Dr. Shaw's core training as a general and cosmetic dentist, she can also expertly administer a painless dental block, achieving widespread numbing of the skin to keep you comfortable, if you prefer.  Once sufficiently numbed, a tiny needle is used to inject a small amount of the dermal filler into the skin to "fill" the wrinkles, folds and improve facial contouring.  The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes with minimal discomfort.  Results are immediate.  Dermal fillers are often used in conjunction with Botox and Dysport to enhance the life of results and complete the whole picture. 



  Beautiful and natural elimination or softening of most affected wrinkles that lasts 9-18 months. 
•  Natural, age-appropriate results unveiling a "refreshed" version of yourself                                                                             
•  Supplemental "touch up" treatment may be desired to achieve and maintain optimal results.



Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are an excellent filler choice for lip augmentation.  In your consultation with Dr. Shaw, she will show and describe different "lip styles" that can be achieved based on your facial symmetry and personal preferences.  Dermal fillers are also used to add definition to the lips, remove vertical lip lines and elevate downturned corners of the mouth (oral commissures) effectively erasing years off your face.    



You can go back to work and full unrestricted activities immediately.  You can shower and wash immediately, and no bandages or dressings are needed.  Some temporary itching, swelling, redness or bruising may occur within the first few days of treatment.
