There are more options today than ever before to alleviate the effects of aging. Many of these are quick and non-surgical, such as Botox and fillers. Often patients will even schedule a Botox or filler appointment during their lunch break.
Botox, a neurotoxin that temporarily reduces the activity of the underlying muscles in the treated area, relaxing and smoothing out wrinkles. Fillers made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, such as Sculptra, Juverderm, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, and Perlane, work by synthetically creating fullness in areas that have lost volume. Fillers can improve the contours of the cheek, chin, and eye area, the corners of the mouth and the vertical creases around the lips. The fillers selected will depend on the anatomic location of the problem area as well as your personal needs.
During your initial consultation, your doctor will listen to your goals then create a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs. In addition to the fillers listed above, Dr. Fisher also offers her patients fat grafting, a longer lasting filler which can improve skin quality after scarring, acne or radiation, and both superficial and deep skin peels, which can improve skin tone and texture.
