• How to Look Younger Without Going under the Knife

Like death and taxes, aging is inevitable—and no place shows the signs of aging quite like our face. We may have earned those smile lines from years of laughter, but that doesn’t mean we want to wear them on display for all to see.

But what if there was a way to diminish the signs of aging without going under the knife? No need for painful surgeries or overnight stays, no hiding at home for months while waiting to heal.

Fillers can turn back the hands of time and reward you with that fresh-faced look you once knew—all in a matter of minutes!

What is a Filler?

The best way to describe what a filler does, is to think of it as putting back in what you’ve lost, contouring/enhancing to a degree that you select. Depending on the brand, each filler offers something different. Some give more of a “boost” than others, but all work to replenish the collagen that you’ve lost over time.

Why We Turn To Fillers

As we age, our skin loosens and begins to lose elasticity. When you were younger, you probably remember your skin glowing and never thought twice about wrinkles or skin sagging. Fast-forward to now and you probably wish you hadn’t skipped out on the moisturizer and remembered the sun block.

There are countless over-the-counter products available today that boast bold claims of restoring your appearance with their “miracle in a jar” spiels, but the truth is, fillers are the only realistic way to turn back the signs of aging—without actual surgery. This is because fillers have the special ability to restore volume at the source where traditional products can’t reach.

Trust Me! Don’t waste your time and money on those empty-promise lotions and potions.

What Fillers Can Do For You

Fillers work to restore fullness by replacing lost volume. When injected, they can help to minimize wrinkles on your face and neck, and are most used to treat smile/laugh lines, brow creases, crow’s feet, and age wrinkles across the forehead area. By restoring the fullness in your skin, this works to smooth out wrinkles while softening your appearance and enhancing your natural beauty.

How Long Do They Last?

When it comes to fillers, there are two types that can offer both short and long-term results.

For short-term fillers, patients will see results for up to 3 months time before additional treatment is needed. If you are interested in a more longer-lasting result, there are products available that can offer enhancement for 5 years time, and in some cases even longer.

What Are Some Fillers Trusted and Offered By Dr. Rochlin?

Botox

This injectable filler is the most popular treatment for wrinkles in the United States, and has gained widespread popularity since its introduction into aesthetics in 2002. Botox works to soften moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows.

In a matter of approximately 10 minutes, Botox is injected into the muscles and serves to temporarily improve the look of lines across the forehead. The larger protein in Botox reacts to a more contained area around the injection point, and controls the muscle movement while restoring lost volume. On average, patients maintain their desired results from Botox for an upwards of 3 months time.

Restylane Silk

This smooth filler is a great choice for patients who are looking to achieve a subtle, naturally enhanced look. Restylane Silk is ideal for those who are hoping to replace volume loss in their lips, as well as treatment for fine lines along the face.

Restylane Lyft

Restylnane Lfyt was designed for patients who are looking for more volume than the Silk line offers; for those wanting to achieve a more dramatic effect. Restylane Lfyt has been FDA approved and its intended use is to minimize the appearance of wrinkles along the mid-face, as it works to lift the cheeks. In just 2 treatments, you will be amazed at its ability to shave years off your appearance, a non-surgical lift that can provide results for up to 2 years time.

JUVÉDERM® XC

This injectable gel filler is perfect for treating wrinkles around the mouth; only taking approximately 15 minutes to complete a treatment that boasts nearly immediate results that can last for up to a year. JUVÉDERM® XC adds volume around the mouth, and is a premiere non-surgical hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that is FDA-approved specifically for improving laugh lines.

RADIESSE®

In a matter of minutes, this dermal filler provides volume enhancement while working with your body to stimulate natural collagen production for a look that is designed to last. With just one treatment, RADIESSSE works to minimize the appearance of deep laugh lines so you can enjoy looking like the best version of yourself again.
