Numerous fillers are available to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. These products are injected in the office with minimal downtime and minimal pain. Lip augmentation as well as improvement in the lines from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial folds) is easily accomplished in only a few minutes with minimal to no bruising. These procedures are performed in the office under local anesthesia and are generally well tolerated.
