Anyone over the age of forty can tell you that almost overnight, their facial volume seemed to disappear and they simply “looked older”. The facial skin breaks down essential proteins and fat over time, creating jowls, marionette lines, deepening of the nasolabial folds, as well as an overall loss of facial volume. Facial fillers, or dermal fillers, can be used to replenish lost volume and create naturally more youthful facial contours.
What are fillers?
Most facial fillers are essentially hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, which are formulated from a naturally occurring substances found in youthful skin. Most of these fillers are designed to provide immediate results and, with ongoing use, can maintain a youthful look for years. Although permanent fillers do exist, Dr. Leipziger believes permanent fillers may have some inherent challenges because the permanent filler may appear in the wrong place as the face ages.
New filler products come into the market every year promising better and longer-lasting results. The results are undeniable and almost instantaneous. By injecting what seems like a very small amount of filler beneath the skin, Dr. Leipziger is able to make facial contour refinements and correct common age-related concerns, including:
- Nasolabial folds: vertical lines that run from the outside of the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines: vertical lines running from the corners of the mouth down toward the chin
- Loss of cheek volume: resulting in a gaunt or hollow appearance
- Jowls: resulting in loss of jawline definition
- Thinning lips: Loss of volume of upper and lower lips

Unlike Botox®️ which directly relaxes the underlying facial muscles to gradually soften wrinkles, fillers work by restoring volume beneath the skin for immediate improvements in the appearance of wrinkles, lines, folds, and sunken or hollow areas. When artfully combined, Botox and fillers can create extremely natural and long-lasting results.

Additional treatment options, such as Botox, laser treatments, or non-surgical skincare can be used to maximize your results for a completely rejuvenated appearance.
