Restylane, Juvederm, and Perlane are safe and natural dermal fillers derived from purified bacterial hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that already holds our collagen together, but we lose it as we age. This process of losing our naturally produced Hyaluronic Acid is the reason for thinning of lips and those unwanted facial lines.
Dermal filler is injected underneath the skin in the nasolabial fold (area around the nose), and marionette lines (areas around the mouth), to plump up these areas and smooth out the wrinkles. Restylane and Juvederm provide a safe and an effective way to add volume back to the skin, wherever needed.
Typically an injection can have lasting results for 6 to 9 months. Areas with lesser movement can last one year or more. Dr. Pacheco will customize your treatment in order to achieve the safest, most effective result, by combining precision and artistry to achieve a natural rejuvenation.

What to Expect:
Dermal fillers provide an immediate, visible volume enhancement and correction of unwanted folds and wrinkles. The effects last six to thirteen months or even longer in some cases. Dr. Pacheco’s careful, meticulous approach ensures a more exact, natural final result. If additional filler is needed after the initial treatment, Dr. Pacheco may schedule you for a second session, one to two weeks later. Dr. Pacheco makes sure that only the necessary number of syringes is used, minimizing the cost to you.
You may experience minimal redness, bruising, lumpiness to the touch or unevenness following the treatment. If any of these side effects occur, they will subside within a few hours or days, depending on the findings. In rare cases, the filler may have to be dissolved.
Cosmetic fillers may be used in conjunction with Botulinum injections, Thermage and Laser treatments to obtain optimal smoothness.
