Fillers & Threads
Soft tissue fillers can restore youthful contours and add harmony and volume to your face. FDA approved filler products are injected into the skin to fill facial wrinkles, folds, and scars; and can be used to treat lips, hollow tear troughs, temples, forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, chin, laugh lines, and even hands. Preferred modern fillers include Restylane (Lyft, Defyne, Refyne), Radiesse, Juvederm (Ultra, Ultra Plus, Vollure, Volbella, & Voluma), Belotero, and Silikon 1000.
Here at the Gateway Aesthetic Institute we also offer Sculptra.
How is Sculptra different from other fillers? Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable poly-L-lactic acid that works gradually to give you subtle yet noticeable results that can last up to 2 years.
Sculptra Aesthetic is different in the way it works. By targeting the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging, it gradually and subtly corrects shallow to deep nasolabial folds (smile lines), contour deficiencies, and other facial wrinkles by replacing collagen lost during the aging process. This can give you a refined, more youthful-looking appearance.

Nonsurgical lifts can be performed with the InstaLift™, PLLA threads (poly-L-lactic acid), and polydioxanone (PDO) absorbable sutures that offer minimal downtime. These dissolvable sutures add youthful volume to the face. Another option is nasolabial fold lifts, which are performed by excising excess skin from around the laugh lines. This is often a good option for patients with thin, loose skin on their lower face.
