The aging process reduces the amount of collagen and hyaluronic acid in our skin, which causes deep lines and a reduced volume in the face. Fillers are injectable materials that can fill deep lines and increase volume in certain areas. Fillers are injected underneath the soft tissue of the face and patients will see difference in their face Immediately.

The fillers provided by Dr. Kenneth Kim are Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm.

Restylane/Perlane
Restylane and Perlane are FDA-approved fillers that are widely utilized across the world. Restylane and Perlane will not only fill your deep lines, but can also heighten the nose and increase volume in various areas of the face. The duration of the injection is short, but patients will see results immediately after the procedure. The injection contains lidocaine (local anesthesia), thus minimizing pain during and after the procedure.

Juvederm
Juvederm is a FDA-approved, gel-type filler often utilized in removing “smile lines” from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth and scars. Juvederm is also often utilized in lip augmentation. It contains lidocaine (local anesthesia), thus minimizing the pain during and after the procedure.
