What are Dermal Fillers?
There are two approaches to treating facial wrinkles. The first approach is to block the nerve signal to the muscle that tells the facial muscle to contract. The second is using dermal fillers, which are a category of injectables that fill in existing moderate to severe wrinkles and lines. Choosing which approach is right for you depends on the region being treated and the depth of the lines or wrinkles. In many cases, patients will have both Botox (or Xeomin) administered simultaneously with facial fillers.
What is Juvederm?

What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a type of facial filler used to treat wrinkles and folds that can appear around the nose and mouth. It’s a safe, effective, FDA approved procedure and is administered using a series of tiny injections.
What is Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting, also known as a fat transfer, is a surgical procedure where fat is removed through liposuction in one or multiple areas of the body, refined, purified, and then re-injected into another area of the body as a filler. With regards to the face, after fat has been removed and purified, it can be re-injected into the face and can fill in lines, wrinkles, and facial depressions.
The downside to a fat transfer is that you may require multiple treatments, because when fat is injected, some of it gets reabsorbed back into the body. Therefore, to avoid placing too much filler in at once, Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi may suggest multiple treatments with a more conservative amount of fat injected, so you’ll achieve the most natural result in the end.
