Dermal Fillers


Restylane® is one of the simplest, safest, and most effective methods of smoothing facial lines and wrinkles. Aging and environmental exposure can cause underlying skin tissue to break down. Without this supporting tissue, lines and wrinkles form, contributing to the appearance of aging. Restylane® injections replace the diminished tissue, providing support, moisture, and lubrication so that wrinkles are filled out and skin is restored to its youthful smoothness.

Restylane® injections offer a distinct advantage over other dermal-filling products. Unlike other dermal fillers, Restylane® is made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by all living beings. Because of this, no allergy test is required prior to a Restylane® treatment. An additional attraction of Restylane® is its convenience. A treatment usually takes no more than 30 minutes, and there is little or no post-treatment downtime. You'll see near immediate results and be able to return to your daily activities right away. The benefits of Restylane® last approximately 4 to 8 months, about twice as long as the effects of other injectable dermal fillers.

Lip Augmentation

Are you unhappy with your thin, flat lips or the myriad lines and creases around your mouth? Or perhaps your lips are not proportionate to your face or lopsided? Lip augmentation by Dr. Grecco might be the solution you're looking for. Lip augmentation is a short, outpatient procedure in which the lips are enhanced with injections of Restylane®. Aside from minor swelling and soreness, post-treatment recovery is generally brief, and most patients return to normal activities with little or no down time.

Dr. Grecco is one of a handful of Oral & Maxillofacial surgeons trained and licensed to administer Restylane®.  To learn more about lip augmentation or other esthetic procedures, contact our practice.
