One of the more exciting advances in cosmetic enhancement has been the development of some remarkable dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®. Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Bogdan has carefully selected these two proven fillers for a reason you'll love: they achieve natural-looking results when filling in those fine lines and facial folds.
From minimizing vertical lip lines and deep nasolabial folds to adding volume to your lips, dermal fillers can make you look younger immediately. There's no downtime, no incisions, and almost no interruption to your regular routine.
Note: Dr. Bogdan enjoys the finesse changes that can occur with the appropriate use of injectable treatments, and will continue providing this service to his established patients (time permitting). Due to the constraints of his busy surgical schedule, he is unable to accept new patients interested in injectable therapies.
I believe that less is more when it comes to facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers. I use fillers carefully and sparingly for appealing results that look natural.

Your Dermal Filler Treatment
Based on his analysis of your skin, specific concerns and desired outcome, Dr. Bogdan will determine whether Restylane or JUVÉDERM is the right filler for you. Both of these dermal fillers contain synthetic hyaluronic acid in a clear gel. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, so no allergy testing is required. Using a very slender needle, Dr. Bogdan injects the product into the targeted areas to fill in deep wrinkles, creases or superficial scars.
Restylane and JUVÉDERM are excellent for restoring lost volume to the cheeks. In addition, if you're considering a chin or cheek implant but aren't sure it's right for you, Dr. Bogdan can use one of these dermal fillers for a temporary enhancement that can help you decide.
If you have thin lips, Dr. Bogdan also can use dermal fillers for lip enhancement. In addition to creating beautifully shaped, fuller lips, Dr. Bogdan can use fillers on those fine lines around your mouth — sometimes referred to as "lipstick bleed lines." To keep you comfortable during lip enhancement, Dr. Bogdan may use an anesthetic block.
Recovery & Results
The treatment takes about 30 minutes. No anesthesia or incisions are involved, and you can return to your regular routine soon after your procedure. To achieve the best results for filling in wrinkles and creases, Dr. Bogdan usually recommends several treatments spaced 1 month apart.
Results appear immediately as lost volume is restored, but you may experience some temporary bruising and swelling. The benefits of dermal fillers typically last 6 months to 1 year or more, and can be maintained with touch-up treatments.
