Many patients are fearful of looking overdone. Dr. Shim strives to give you a natural look.

Injectable wrinkle fillers are treatments used for:

  • Reducing and softening fine to deep wrinkles
  • Filling in hollows under the eyes or in the cheeks and temples
  • Raising depressed scars such as those from acne or surgery
  • Enhancing the lips, cheekbones, chin, nose bridge and jawline
  • Improving the look of aging hands

The most popular fillers, Restylane® and Juvéderm®, are both hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the middle layer of the skin. It is a thick clear soft gel that attracts water and helps build collagen. Results from these fillers often last 9 months or longer. Hydrelle™ is a new hyaluronic acid filler with lidocaine to minimize discomfort.

Fat transfer is another option which can be discussed with Dr. Shim.
