Aging over time, moderate to severe lines and wrinkles start to appear as your skin loses elasticity.
Dermal fillers add volume beneath the skin to smooth these lines and folds to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you desire.
Dermal fillers are eased under your skin to instantly smooth out lines and creases. Results look smooth and natural.
Fillers can be used to enhance your own facial features.
Dr. Costa uses hyaluronic acid fillers in the JUVEDERM® family in order to achieve the results you desire.
Dr. Costa works with you to achieve natural looking results so you can look and feel your best.
A natural result enhances your own beauty and does not distract from it by avoiding the appearance of having been “done” or overfilled.
Part of Dr. Costa’s expertise involves using the entire range of fillers to choose which filler to use and in what location in order to provide you with a result about which you can have confidence
Hyaluronic Acid is the most common substance used in dermal fillers.
It is a substance that naturally occurs in the body, holding many times its weight in water.
This accounts for its volumizing property.
There are 5 fillers in the JUVEDERM® family which are used for different purposes and locations.
This allows a specific and detailed treatment plan to be designed for you.
Hyaluronic acid is easily reversible, unlike other fillers.
This means if there is an area that needs to be taken down, which is not common, it is easily done with an injection of hyaluronidase, which dissolved the filler in that area.
Tear Trough Injections, Liquid Blepharoplasty
Injectable fillers, or a liquid eyelid lift, can treat volume loss in the under eye hollows (tear troughs) and midface, or cheek. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are recommended for under eye injection. Benefits of HA fillers include ease of use with an off the shelf product and the ability to dissolve the product. Dr. Costa uses microcannula injection, with a blunt (non sharp), fine needle, as she has found it results in less bruising, swelling, and downtime. Fillers require repeated office visits as the product goes away over time.
