THE “LIQUID FACELIFT” – AN ALTERNATIVE TO SURGERY
FACIAL FILLERS in NAPLES
Some patients would like a facelift, but don’t have the available downtime or would like to avoid surgery. For these patients, fillers can be used to achieve impressive rejuvenating results.
Facial fillers can be used for cheek augmentation, lip enhancement, frown lines, lower eyelids and the jaw area to achieve a younger, more rested and rejuvenated countenance! Suzanne will customize treatment for each patient, which often includes a combination of different fillers and techniques in order to achieve the best outcome.

YOUNGER, FULLER & MORE BEAUTIFUL LIPS
Fillers can plump thin lips to achieve a younger and fuller, more natural and beautiful smile. Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:
REMOVE OR REDUCE SMILE LINES & REJUVENATE THE LOWER FACE
Smile lines (or Nasolabial Folds as they are known medically) are the lines in the skin that run from each side of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth. As their name suggests, they are more pronounced when smiling. These lines tend to become deeper and more visible with age. The lines are caused by a reduction in facial fat and a loss of collagen and elastin – both natural parts of ageing.
Injectable fillers can instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away these facial wrinkles and folds, leaving you looking and feeling younger. It’s a very natural looking result… everyone will notice, but noone will know!
REJUVENATION OF THE LOWER EYELIDS
The loss of volume at the junction between the upper cheek and lower eyelid, the “tear trough”, is sometimes an obvious sign of ageing. A simple replacement of this lost volume without the need for surgery can lead to dramatic improvement. In most patients, there is an almost immediate difference with a reduction in the depth and width of the tear trough itself and dark circles, which are often due to shadowing within the trough itself, also improve, leaving you looking young and refreshed.
RESTORE FULLNESS IN CHEEK AREA
As people age, the cheek tissues drop. Facial fillers can be used in a number of ways to re-create the high cheekbone. While it demands an artistic touch, it can create a powerful rejuvenation of the midface.
CHIN ENHANCEMENT WITHOUT SURGERY
A strong chin is an important element of an attractive face. Aging leads to heavy cheeks and poorly defined jawlines and a recessed chin can create an imbalance with the nose and the jawline. Fillers can be used to sculpt and augment this area, creating a stronger chin and jawline and creating a much more youthful appearance.
FACIAL FILLERS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS JUVEDERM?
Juvederm is a facial filler made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps to bind water to cells. Juvederm can be used in most areas of the face, and is an excellent choice for lip augmentation and treatment of the lower face.
WHAT IS RESTYLANE?
Like Juvederm, Restylane is comprised of hyaluronic acid gel. Restylane is often used to treat facial wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds. Restylane can also be used to augment the lips and to correct hollowness in the tear trough below the eyes.
WHAT IS PERLANE?
Perlane is a thicker counterpart to Restylane, and is also composed of hyaluronic acid gel. It can also be used to treat deep wrinkles, and is also used to sculpt areas like the cheeks.
WHAT IS RADIESSE?
Radiesse is an injectable filler made up of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) suspended in a gel. CaHA is a material that is found naturally in teeth and bone. Radiesse can be used to treat deep facial lines and wrinkles. It is also an excellent filler to add volume to areas such as the cheeks and jaw.
HOW LONG SHOULD I EXPECT THE RESULTS TO LAST AFTER A FILLER INJECTION?
While results can vary, Restylane and Juvederm may last six to twelve months. Perlane may last up to one year. Radiesse results may last up to two years. The duration of filler correction depends on the type of filler, the facial area treated, the injection technique, and the rate that the patient ‘s tissues break down the filler.
