The most common and popular form of non-surgical treatment with real results are injectables, which have a long track record of safety and efficacy. We use several types of fillers depending on the area a given patient would like addressed, but common sites include the marionette lines, the nasolabial folds (the lip-cheek grooves), the tear troughs (nasojugal grooves), lips, cheeks, temples, and pre-jowl grooves. Made from hyaluronic acid, dermal filers add bulk using a naturally occurring substance, so it is absorbed naturally without scarring, and can be reversed by injection of an enzyme. Preparations of hyaluronic acid fillers are offered in a variety of consistencies, with “thin” fillers best used to augment the lips, tear troughs, and fine facial lines, and “thick” fillers being better suited for the cheeks.
Fillers are very versatile tools in facial rejuvenation, being one of the few treatments that show results instantly and with no or minimal downtime. There is no single filler that is best for everyone, so we offer a wide array of options so that we can jointly choose what is best for you. We carry products from the Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse lines, so our patients can take advantage of the best offerings from each of the major companies.
We use microcannulas to deliver the filler material when possible, which differ from the traditional needles because they cause less tissue trauma, which not only makes the treatment more comfortable, but also decreases the risks of bruising and swelling.

Get in Touch
The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog is here to give you the most honest, up to date information from us to you, in our “sponsored by nobody” style. Our discussions will include topics that interest our readers, with a focus on facial plastic surgery. We will use this space to answer frequently asked questions and also discuss current trends, new products, and emergent technologies. Information is widely available on the internet, but good information that is not marketing material in disguise is hard to find, and often times constitutes a majority of what patients read as their “research”. The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog differs, as we are an independent practice that has no exclusive deals with any vendors, companies, or other entities that would influence the quality and honesty of the information we provide you.
Our First Series
One of the most common discussions that we have with patients are about the differences between products that we offer, as there is some overlap. The single most common question we get asked is, “what is the difference between Botox and Dysport?”. Our first three-part series will explore the differences between the three neuromodulators currently available in the USA, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Several topics, such as differences in the strength, longevity, or “spread” between the products will be discussed. Despite being broken into a three-part series, there is quite a lot of information, as the information from these posts are rooted in science, and the claims are supported by multiple articles published in high quality, peer-reviewed medical literature.
