There are numerous facial injectable products available which can be used to restore the facial volume and fill out wrinkled or uneven areas of the face. Dermatology & Laser of Alabama is on the cutting edge of the latest fillers available. For the safety of her patients, Dr. Sawyer uses only FDA-approved products. These fillers have demonstrated predictable, long-term results with minimal bruising, swelling and redness after treatment.
During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Sawyer can recommend which soft tissue filler or fillers can achieve the enhancement you desire. The exact injectable or filler used is individualized for each patient, based on the location of injection, the desired effect and longevity.
The result you should see is a restoration of younger, smoother facial contours without an invasive surgical procedure. Facial filler treatments may be used alone or in conjunction with a resurfacing procedure, such as a chemical peel or laser treatment, and is often combined with BOTOX for a synergistic result.
