Cosmetic Fillers

Is filler just for lip injections? No, dermal fillers are incredible products that can dramatically improve your appearance in problem areas.

We use fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm, and your own fat for correcting wrinkles and folds, shaping facial contours and augmenting the lips.

These are injected into the dermis in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous, producing a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to the skin. The best part is that fillers can be injected without any surgery, making them quick and easy to use.

Filler Types & Uses

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, making these fillers biocompatible and safe. They can be used to treat various concerns, such as:

  • Adding volume and fullness to lips (lip augmentation).
  • Softening nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines.
  • Smoothing out under-eye hollows and dark circles.
  • Enhancing cheekbones and restoring facial contours.
  • Improving the appearance of scars and fine lines.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers: Radiesse

This type of filler contains microscopic calcium particles suspended in a gel. It is used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, particularly in the lower face. Common uses include:

  • Addressing smile lines (nasolabial folds) and marionette lines.
  • Restoring volume to the cheeks and mid-face region.
  • Providing a lift to sagging skin.

Poly-L-Lactic Acid Fillers: Sculptra

These fillers stimulate collagen production over time and are often used for more gradual and long-lasting results. They are commonly used to:

  • Improve facial volume and contour over several treatment sessions.
  • Minimize the appearance of deep wrinkles and folds.
  • Sculptra is a brand name for this type of filler

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) Fillers: Bellafill & Artefill

PMMA fillers contain tiny spheres that remain in place under the skin to provide support and structure. They are primarily used for:

  • Treating severe facial wrinkles and folds.
  • Adding volume to sunken areas of the face.
  • Fill Acne Scars/Pox Marks

Autologous Fat Transfer

This procedure involves harvesting fat from one part of the body (usually through liposuction) and injecting it into another area of the face that requires volume restoration. It is commonly used for:

  • Facial rejuvenation and enhancement.
  • Restoring lost volume in the cheeks, lips, and under-eye areas.

ALMI treatments

ALMI or Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection is a revolutionary filler treatment that uses a patient’s own tissue and cells to rejuvenate damaged skin. This simple 45 minute process is an outpatient procedure and utilizes fat cells and other cellular components like PRP to deliver long lasting results. ALMI procedures can be used in a variety of places on your body including to promote hair follicle growth, collagen rejuvenation, and help with volume loss. ALMI is a proven filler treatment that is minimally invasive. Contact The Ferguson Clinic for more information, our expert team can answer all of your questions.
