Everyone ages. With age comes wisdom, and wrinkles, and dark circles under the eyes, and sagging features. If you look in the mirror and the person staring back at you appears tired and older than how you feel, do not lose hope. There are various procedures that can make you excited to look in the mirror every morning and put your best face forward every day. If looking better is something you are concerned with, facial
rejuvenation might be the answer you have been searching for.

Dr. Stevens specializes in facial rejuvenation techniques including safe dermal fillers like Perlane® and Juvederm®.

Modern fillers like Perlane® and Juvederm® have revolutionized contouring
of the face. With the addition of local anesthesia to the injections it has never been easier and more tolerable. These fillers typically last in the range of 9 to
If you are considering treatment with a soft-tissue filler, you may have heard some buzz about Perlane®, one of several available hyaluronic acid-based
Using Perlane® enables Dr. Stevens to: soften the grooves that extend downward from the corners of the mouth and along the nose, enhance volume and define contours of the cheeks, chin and jawline, elevate the down turn of the lips and soften the appearance of scars and other depressed facial marks.
Juvederm® is a very soft gel like filler that Dr. Stevens uses to smooth hollows under the eyes, enhance the lips, and define the curve of the upper lip
Both Juvederm® and Perlane® are hyaluronic gels that replenishes the body’s natural hyaluronic stores. This naturally occurring sugar can be found in the body’s connective tissues, and its supply dwindles with advancing age and exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. When injected, hyaluronic acid bonds with water to boost your skin’s elasticity and fullness. This eliminates smile lines and other facial folds.
Unlike with other available fillers, no allergy test is warranted before Perlane® or Juvederm® injections because they do not contain any animal products. The entire procedure takes about 15-30 minutes. A topical anesthetic is applied to the area to be treated, followed by topical application of ice. In addition to the presence of local anesthetic agents within the gels themselves, today’s needles are so fine that many people feel nothing during the procedure.
There is little downtime with injection with Juvederm® or Perlane®. That said, some do report redness, swelling or bruising around the injection site.
The duration of these injectable agents is typically 9 to 12 months.
The choice of an injectable agent is critical to the successful treatment of wrinkles, folds, and facial depressions. An individual, complimentary consultation with Dr. Stevens will give you an accurate assessment of what will be best suited for your needs. Often, a combination of agents may be used to achieve optimal results in different portions of your face.
By combining expertise and high quality, specific products such as popular Juvederm® and Perlane®, Dr. Stevens can offer simple and impactful, non-surgical instant results with minimal pain, no recovery time, and significant financial savings.
