What injectable fillers can do for you:
- Instantly smooth creases and soften lines, so you can have treatment today and look great for the cocktail party on Saturday
- Add naturally soft plumpness to cheeks & lips, enhancing facial contours at any age
- Treatment can be fine-tuned to maintain a natural appearance as time goes by
- Some fillers stimulate collagen production, so your skin actually becomes firmer after treatment

Your injectable filler options
If you’ve done even minimal research on FDA approved fillers, you know there are a lot of options! And the good news is that they are are all excellent, safe products. Most use hyaluronic acid, which already exists in your skin, or another naturally derived substance as the main structural component. Over time, your body safely and naturally absorbs the filler. We offer the following options at Ditesheim Cosmetic Surgery in Charlotte:
- Juvéderm: this soft, smooth hyaluronic acid gel is excellent for treating lines around the nose, mouth & chin, and can also be a good option for lip enhancement. Lasts 6 to 12 months for most patients.
- Restylane: also made from hyaluronic acid, Restylane is great for fine to moderate facial wrinkles and is FDA approved for lip enhancement. It lasts about 6 months, making it a great option for first-timers.
- Perlane: a close relative to Restylane, Perlane has larger particles of hyaluronic acid designed to treat more pronounced creases around the nose and mouth.
- Radiesse: this versatile filler is made from calcium hydroxyapatite, and can last 1 year or longer. In addition to restoring volume, Radiesse stimulates natural collagen production, so skin’s firmness continues to improve.
- Belotero Balance: this newer hyaluronic acid filler uses a slightly softer gel that is designed to conform to your skin naturally and evenly, making it a good option for nasolabial folds and vertical lip lines alike
