As we age, our face loses volume, accentuating lines in the cheeks, under the eyes, around the lips and pre-jowl areas. Facial fillers work instantly to smooth wrinkles, fill deeper lines, and restore volume, giving a more youthful appearance to the face.
Gel fillers, such as Juvéderm®, Voluma®, and Belotero® are formulated from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin. These products are used to restore fullness and volume. Results are seen immediately at the time of treatment and may last for up to one year.

The latest filler in the Juvéderm family, Volbella uses a thinner hyaluronic acid gel to make precise, natural-looking enhancements for the lips. When injected, Volbella can help to create a fuller, well-shaped contour of the lips for a more youthful and luscious appearance. Volbella is also great for treating those fine lines around the lips and mouth that can be making you look much older than you are.

Radiesse is made from calcium hydroxyapatite, a substance found in bone, that is used for deeper lines and volume correction in the face, as well as restoring a youthful appearance of the hands. The calcium particles provide a platform for collagen production, with longer-lasting results of up to 18 months or more. Radiesse may be used in conjunction with gel fillers to create a natural result in addressing aging facial features. Unlike gel fillers, Radiesse is not intended for placement around the lips.
Facial fillers may be used alone, in combination with one another filler, or in combination with surgical rejuvenation. Dr. Burke customizes your treatment options specifically to your individual needs.

Continuous movement of the skin on our forehead and around the eyes can cause lines and wrinkles that remain visibly etched when the face is at rest. Botulinum Toxin type A, the active protein in both Botox® Cosmetic and Xeomin®, relaxes the muscles in these areas, softening frown lines, forehead furrows and crow’s feet around the eyes. The result is a natural appearance and a smooth, more youthful look to your face.
Dr. Burke also uses Botox® to treat excessive axillary (underarm) sweating. This is done through a series of small injections in the hair-bearing areas of the underarm region.
You may begin to notice results after 48-72 hours, and full results will be seen after one week. Results generally last 3-4 months. In order to maintain your results, injections will need to be repeated as muscle contraction and expression recur.
