Skin imperfections such as wrinkles, blemishes, and fine lines can cause embarrassment and worsen the signs of aging. Soft tissue fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm can help fill in lines and creases, temporarily restoring a youthful-looking appearance. Fillers are injected beneath the skin to add volume to sunken and creased areas. Many patients also choose filler as a treatment to add fullness to the lips and cheeks.
Our skin is naturally prone to aging, usually due to sun exposure, gravity, and years of facial movements such as chewing, smiling, and squinting. The underlying skin tissues that keep us looking youthful and plumped up often break down, leading to smile lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet, and facial creases where most muscle movement occurs. Your Scottsdale and Gilbert, AZ plastic surgeon uses fillers to correct imperfections and give patients a smooth, wrinkle-free facial appearance.
Many patients in Gilbert, Scottsdale, and Phoenix prefer injectable facial fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse to achieve their cosmetic goals.

FACIAL FILLER OPTIONS
Surgeons have various options when it comes to injectable fillers. During your initial consultation, Dr. LaBarbera will determine the best type of filler to meet your cosmetic goals.
This is a fairly new facial injectable that is created from poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that can help replace the loss of collagen. Sculptra aesthetic fillers help correct folds and facial wrinkles that can emerge due to aging.

PLAN YOUR PROCEDURE
Injectable fillers cost varies depending on the extent of the treatment, type of filler, and the number of syringes being used. Insurance typically does not cover the cost of cosmetic procedures. In some rare cases, where the treatment is provided to treat indentation or scars resulting from injury or accidents, costs may be reimbursed.
