  • Juvederm®: Juvederm® can be used for facial enhancements, such as plumping your lips or smoothing out laugh lines. It is also made of a hyaluronic acid-based composition, making it feel supple and natural.
  • Restylane®: This is widely used to fix moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. With various formulations, Restylane® can adapt to specific areas of your face.

Deciding on the best filler 

Selecting the best dermal filler requires careful consideration of multiple factors, such as your skin type, age, target area, and personal preferences. 

Dr. Handel's expertise helps guide you towards the ideal filler that aligns with your aspirations, whether adding volume to sunken cheeks with Sculptra® or softening the appearance of marionette lines with Restylane®.

Post-treatment care 

Aftercare is crucial to sustain the results achieved with dermal fillers. Dr. Handel provides detailed instructions for you to follow after your procedure to maximize outcomes.
