If you would like to attain a more youthful look or enhance specific areas of your face without surgery, an injectable filler treatment offers several benefits. Based on your goals and specific problem area(s), Dr. Powers will help determine which treatment will meet your cosmetic needs. He has extensive experience in administering dermal fillers for patients seeking an enhanced appearance.
You have multiple options to consider, such as Radiesse®, Sculptra® and Juvederm®. Generally used to fill in lines and wrinkles by adding fullness and volume, these are also referred to as “dermal fillers.” There is no downtime for injectable fillers – you can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.
This filler is composed of calcium hydroxyl apatite and aqueous gel. Because calcium is a natural substance found in the body, Radiesse injections do not cause negative reactions for the patient. Injections can be used for multiple areas of the face, such as the lips, cheeks, and facial lines and wrinkles. This filler offers results that can last for three to five years before it is gradually replaced by the body’s own tissue and dissolves. Radiesse injections can be performed within minutes.
Made of poly L lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic biodegradable polymer that is both resorbable and bio compatible, Sculptra® is designed to correct varying degrees of nasolabial folds and facial wrinkles. It is not considered a wrinkle filler, rather, it is a “facial volumizer” that is intended to replace the natural volume loss that occurs as people age, greatly improve facial contours, and provide a fuller, more youthful appearance. This is done by stimulating the body to produce new collagen at the injection sites. To maintain longevity of the results, the treatment regimen for Sculptra® usually consists of three injection sessions given at four to six-week intervals. Each treatment session takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
The first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for people of color, Juvederm® is specifically intended to instantly restore volume and smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This includes “smile lines” or “parentheses” (the creases that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth, also known as nasolabial folds). The process of Juvederm® injections typically takes about 15 minutes, with results being near immediate. Depending on the exact Juvederm® formulation used and placement site(s), the results may last anywhere from six to 12 months.

"I went to Dr. Powers because some of my friends had a few skin procedures done and they looked fabulous. I was very nervous but after it was over, I realized I had nothing to be nervous about. There was absolutely no pain involved at all. It was so simple. And now, I have people telling me that my skin looks really pretty. I’ve never in my life had anyone tell me that I have pretty skin, even when I was young! I owe it all to Dr. Powers. I would recommend him to anyone (and I do)."
