Dermal fillers and injectables can help you look younger without surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Larry C.

What are Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases on your face add years to your appearance. Not too long ago, the only option for men and women who wanted to look younger was to have extensive plastic surgery. Today, these signs of aging can be treated quickly and easily without surgery thanks to our line of FDA-approved dermal fillers and injectables.
How Much Do Dermal Fillers and Injectables Cost?
The cost of dermal fillers and injectables is based on several factors, such as:

Good Candidates for Dermal Fillers and Injectables
With today’s dermal fillers and injectables, Dr. Leverett is able to treat superficial and deep lines and wrinkles. Most men and women are good candidates, but some aging has advanced beyond the capability of treatment with dermal fillers and injectables.
Treatments for Dynamic Wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles form when you contract the muscles in your forehead and around the eyes. These wrinkles appear as horizontal lines across the forehead and between the eyes. Crow’s feet are also considered dynamic wrinkles. While Botox® is often the leading injectable for these wrinkles, we are proud to also offer Jeuveau™, otherwise known as NEW-tox.
Treatments for Fine Lines
Fine lines may not be noticeable by most people, but they will likely worsen without treatment. For women, fine lines represent a unique challenge because makeup collects in the lines and can make them more obvious.
Treatments for Medium Wrinkles
Medium wrinkles appear around the nose and mouth and are caused by lower levels of natural substances that are critical for young skin.
Treatments for Deep Wrinkles and Lost Volume
Deep wrinkles, creases, and folds are most often caused by lost facial volume. Dermal fillers restore facial volume to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds, and creases.
Treatment for Lips
If you’re looking for a non-surgical lip augmentation treatment, dermal fillers might just fit the bill. With injectable treatments, you can enjoy enhanced lip volume that looks and feels natural, alleviating signs of aging or simply enhancing your lips.
Treatment for a Double Chin
Double chins form when you develop excess fat under your chin and along your jowls. Dr. Leverett is proud to offer his patients a non-surgical treatment for double chins.
What Can I Expect from Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
Dermal fillers and injectables can give you a younger appearance after just one treatment and can eliminate lines and wrinkles on any area of your face. The longevity of your results depends on which product or combination of products that are used to treat your personal anti-aging needs.
Combining Fillers for Maximum Effect
Several of today’s dermal fillers treat fine lines and deep wrinkles, and these products can be used in combinations to maximize the anti-aging effects. In these types of applications, Dr. Leverett may use one product to fill in most of the deep wrinkles followed by a product for fine lines that may be revealed by treating the deeper wrinkles. By using this technique, Dr. Leverett is able to give the skin a smooth, flawless and youthful appearance.
After the Dermal Fillers and Injectables Treatments
You see immediate improvements after your treatment, but some dermal fillers and injectables take some time to achieve full results. Dr. Leverett will explain what to expect from your treatment during the consultation appointment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do fillers last?
The duration of your dermal fillers and injectables treatment will vary significantly depending on the type of injectable treatment you receive. Some injectables produce results that last only a few months, while others produce results that can last for a few years or longer.
What is a good age to get dermal fillers or injectables?
There are practical uses for dermal fillers and injectables at nearly every age. Younger patients can benefit from treatments like Botox®, which can help prevent the formation of wrinkles before they become noticeable. Patients who have already begun to develop signs of aging can benefit from Botox® in the same way, while also enjoying some of the rejuvenating effects of dermal fillers. Older patients may want to stick mostly to dermal fillers, which can restore volume to the skin to make the face look fuller and younger.
What to avoid after fillers
Can fillers/injectables make you look younger?
Yes! One of the many reasons that dermal filler and injectable treatments are so popular is that they have the incredible ability to help patients look years younger. This is done by smoothing out wrinkles and lines in the face, either by relaxing facial muscles or restoring volume to the skin. Similarly, dermal fillers can fill in creases and restore lost volume to add youthfulness to the appearance.
