Fine lines signal the first signs of aging. Inevitably, lines become creases, the skin loses tone and volume, and lips grow thin. At FACES medical spa, we use dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® for facial rejuvenation and lip injections in Anchorage. These simple treatments help people from Wasilla, Palmer, and the surrounding area restore their youthful appearance and enhance facial features without surgery. Although fillers can’t help with excess sagging skin, they do add volume and provide immediate results.
Our highly-trained providers look forward to meeting you and answering all of your questions.Request My Consultation
Fillers are relatively versatile products that can be used to treat a variety of age-related concerns. When administered by an experienced professional such as a member of the staff here at FACES, dermal fillers can yield natural-looking results that last for months or even years. Different fillers are often better at achieving different outcomes, and your injector guides you through each of your options to help you make an informed decision.
You are likely a good candidate for dermal filler injections if you meet the following criteria:
Although they’re both injectable products intended to treat wrinkles, BOTOX Cosmetic and dermal fillers work in very different ways. BOTOX works by temporarily relaxing muscles that cause certain wrinkles, most notably crow’s feet and glabellar lines between the eyebrows. On the other hand, dermal fillers physically fill in wrinkles and depressions beneath the skin. Each product has its own indication, but they can both yield impressive results. They can also be used in conjunction with one another.

We offer JUVÉDERM and Restylane® fillers, which are both FDA approved and made with hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally produced by the body to give skin volume. HA fillers last longer than collagen-based fillers and, because the substance mirrors that naturally produced by the body, there is almost no risk of an allergic reaction. Allergy skin tests are typically required before collagen injections.
Each filler in the JUVÉDERM family is formulated for specific purposes. Options include:
Restylane is a clear gel that helps provide fullness and elasticity to your skin. This filler corrects mild to moderate facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Restylane is more cohesive than JUVÉDERM, making it better suited for certain lines and wrinkles.
Treatment with fillers is typically simple, straightforward, and brief. Your injector begins by cleansing your face. He or she then makes a series of quick injections into the areas of your face that you wish to treat, which may include:
Each injection lasts for only a second and feels like a quick pinch.
Following your filler treatment, you’re free to return to your usual activities as soon as you’d like. You may experience some short-term bruising, redness, tenderness, or swelling. These are normal side effects and typically resolve themselves within a few days.
I had been thinking about getting an upper eyelid procedure for about 5 years. I happened to run into a friend who had her upper eyelid procedure done at this office. Her results were great…. I met with [the doctor] and his team and had an instant connection with them. I had my upper and lower eyelid procedures done and I love my new look! [The doctor] did a great job and his team is awesome. I'm so happy!Rosie 50-year-old patient, after upper and lower blepharoplasty
The results of injectable fillers are immediately visible.
The best injectable depends on your individual needs and cosmetic goals. Dermal fillers replace volume, making them a good choice for filling in facial folds, hollows, and thin, flattened lips. BOTOX stops facial muscle contractions, so it’s a good choice for smoothing out the associated lines and creases.
When a trained and experienced practitioner uses FDA-approved fillers to make enhancements in a well-screened adult, fillers are very safe.
Yes. Filler treatments are an excellent tool for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. They can help you look younger by replacing facial volume around the eyes and mouth, on the cheeks and the backs of the hands, and other areas where it is lost to aging.
This depends on the area treated, the product used, and how your body interacts with the filler. During your consultation, your injector offers you a specific timeframe. Generally speaking, the results of fillers can last anywhere between 6 months and 2 years.
Absolutely. Fillers can be a wonderful complement to BOTOX Cosmetic.
