What are dermal fillers?
Many people notice undesirable facial lines, shadows and wrinkles as they age. As we age, the
skin and tissues of the face can lose volume, especially around the eyes and lips, which can
create folds, such as “smile lines” or dark shadows under the eyes. If desired, these areas and
others can be addressed with simple, non-surgical treatments utilizing injectable fillers.
Injectable fillers can restore lost volume, and smooth away unwanted wrinkles and shadows
without a trip or the cost of an operating room surgery.
Typically, injectable fillers require minimal recuperation time, and most treatments can be
completed during a single office visit. Results may last up to a year and longer depending on
the type of filler used and the area injected. However, additional treatments are necessary to
maintain results. The relative ease and immediate results of cosmetic fillers make them an ideal
choice for many.

Surgeon, Dr. Sana Bautista, we help our patients achieve a fresher look with cosmetic
injectables. Through her extensive training and understanding of facial structure, she can give
you a ‘liquid face lift’ that will draw compliments and look natural.
Areas of treatment:

- Loss of volume in your cheeks
- Nasolabial folds (the deep lines on either side of your mouth)

- Thin lips
Dr. Bautista customizes each patient’s treatment to match their desired outcome and facial
anatomy. It takes an experienced and trained plastic surgeon to deliver the right amount of filler
to the right location, thereby enhancing your natural youthful look and preventing an “overdone”
