Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to add volume, to soften hollows, and to blend scars and fine lines to restore smooth and youthful contours.

Filler can be divided into volumizing gels that are injected into the skin and cause immediate improvement, and biostimulatory fillers that are injected but take 6-12 weeks to take full effect. Volumizing fillers are generally composed of hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules which are sugar-based substances that bind to water and create plumpness where injected. The HA molecules are gradually dissolved by the body’s natural enzymes over a period of 6-12 months. These treatments should only be performed by physicians with an aesthetic eye who are intimately familiar with the underlying anatomy of the face. During your consultation Dr. Weiser will discuss beneficial injection sites and will develop a treatment plan with you to best suit your unique anatomy and the needs of your lifestyle. Biostimulatory filler, such as Sculptra Aesthetic, is a suspension of poly-L lactic acid particles that stimulate the body to produce additional collagen molecules over weeks to months and results can last up to 2 years. Sculptra can be used for adding volume, improving contour, and also for improving the quality and texture of the overlying skin.

Dr. Weiser is renowned for her skilled injection of filler into tear troughs to soften undereye hollows and improve dark circles. Undereye filler can also improve fine lines and skin laxity to create more youthful skin texture and a more rested appearance
