WHY CHOOSE US FOR FILLERS?

Safety

  • • We only use fillers that are FDA-approved.
  • • But we go even further and stay current on the literature and won’t use fillers that have any history of poor outcomes, even if they are FDA-approved.
  • • Anything we inject in you, we have already injected in several family members (they are always our first volunteers for new products that we have determined to be safe and effective).

Experience

We have been injecting fillers since they were invented.   We started with collagen many years ago (when that was the only choice available). Then we switched to Restylane when it entered the market in 2003.  And when Juvederm launched in 2006, we were asked to participate in the JET trial – a pre-launch clinical study of Juvederm.


Expertise

Each doctor has areas of expertise where they feel they inject fillers for the best results. They only treat these areas:

Marianna Blyumin, MD
  • • Nasolabial folds, mesolabial folds (“marionette lines”), and other lines around the mouth.
  • • Lips
  • • Volumizing injections to enhance other areas of the face. For example injections to enhance cheek bones, or to fill in hollow cheeks, or to lift subtle jowls along the jawline.

Norman Minars, MD
  • • Nasolabial folds, mesolabial folds (“marionette lines”), and other lines around the mouth.
  • • Lips
  • • Under the eyes

Lesley Clark-Loeser, MD
  • • Nasolabial folds, mesolabial folds (“marionette lines”), and other lines around the mouth.
  • • Lips
  • • Volumizing injections to enhance other areas of the face. For example injections to enhance cheek bones, or to fill in hollow cheeks, or to lift subtle jowls along the jawline.

Our Philosophy for injecting fillers like Restylane and Juvederm:

Our goal is to produce natural looking results. No one should look like they had something "done". Most of our patients receive compliments after the procedure such as "you look more well-rested", and not "what did you have done?"

Our goal is to achieve an overall softer, and therefore more youthful appearance. Everyone has a nasolabial fold, we just do not want a deep nasolabial fold . We can make some lines disappear, and others we are happy to just soften. We fill in hollows where volume has been lost. With revolumization, shadows that created a harsh look, begin to soften or disappear.

Replacing volume also lifts part of the face, such as jowls or the corners of the mouth that start to turn down with age. We target areas of the face where a little volume can make a big difference.
