Fillers and Soft Tissue Atrophy

Right Physician – Right Treatment

The most common areas affected by soft tissue atrophy are the nasolabial folds (the crease that runs between the nose and the side of the mouth), the corners of the mouth (or marionette lines), the tear trough (lines under the eyes), cheeks, chin, and lips. It requires an experienced physician to make the right choice of filler for the type of wrinkle being treated.

Juvederm & Belotero

Juvederm and Belotero are naturally occurring hyaluronic acids that provide excellent, natural appearing results and last from 6-12 months. These treatments are ideal for treating wrinkles, improving scars, and shaping and augmenting the lips and cheeks. Topical and/or local injections can be used to make the injections more comfortable. The injection of fillers is very technique dependent and is only injected by experienced, well-trained physicians at Surgical Dermatology Group. Dr. Harmon has conducted and participated in several national clinical trials with cosmetic fillers and is able to make the most appropriate treatment for you to look your very best.

Juvederm and Bleotero treatments have little to no down time and in most cases patients can return to normal activities almost immediately after treatment. Side effects may include bruising and swelling at the injection sites. Results are visible immediately after the injection.
