Deep lines or hollows between the eye and the cheek can leave you looking years older than you actually are. These hollows can be caused by loss of skin elasticity from aging, significant changes in weight, or simply from having overly deep-set eyes. Whatever the reason you’d like under eye rejuvenation, we’re here to help.
At Skin Cancer Specialists, our go-to solution for problematic under eye concerns is Juvederm Volbella®.
Volbella® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that can provide an instantly smooth, well-rested appearance. The filler uses patented Vycross technology to ensure a natural look and feel. There’s no downtime associated with the procedure, and side effects are minimal.
Your under eye Volbella® treatment can be performed in-office in just a few minutes. One of our skilled injectors will fill in predetermined problem areas with the lidocaine-enhanced serum to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. You may experience minor pain at the injection site several days post-treatment.
Initial results from Volbella® are immediate. You’ll see a noticeable youthful appearance directly following your treatment. Some swelling may skew the final results for about 1-week. However, Volbella® results are long-lasting. Touch-up treatments may not be necessary for 6-12 months after your procedure.
Best yet, Volbella® is surprisingly inexpensive. Enjoy instant, long-term results without the high price tag associated with more invasive procedures.
During your in-person consultation, one of our knowledgeable dermatologists will complete a facial evaluation to determine if Volbella® may be right for you. Afterward, if you see fit, you can opt to undergo the treatment in-office.

If you’re interested in dermal fillers, you’re not alone – thousands of men and women are discovering how these anti-aging injections can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the face and hands. Dermal fillers can even be used to add volume to key facial areas like the cheeks and lips. These anti-aging injections can easily be incorporated into any skincare regimen for smooth, hydrated, and younger-looking skin.
But when it comes down to it, how often will you have to undergo dermal filler injections? How long do dermal filler results last?
The answer is that it depends on the type of dermal filler you’re using. Some dermal fillers can last for six to twelve months, while other dermal fillers can last up to five years.
Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that aids in the production of collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid also helps skin absorb water, which helps it look brighter, more hydrated, and firmer. The thicker the hyaluronic acid gel, the more volume you can expect to see at the injection site. For example, dermal fillers for lip augmentation have thinner gels (to provide best results possible), while dermal fillers for cheek augmentation are naturally thicker and designed to last longer.
As a rule of them, here’s how long you can expect results to last for, depending on the type of brand you use:

You’re definitely interested in Botox injections – but you’re not interested in looking like your face has been frozen in an expression of shock. Unfortunately, with so many media stories of men and women with these exact expressions, it’s no wonder many people think that Botox injections are a one-way ticket to Frozentown.
However, when performed correctly, Botox injections can lead to smoother, younger-looking skin, all without that frozen appearance.
The secret to a natural look is being more conservative with Botox injections. Botox is injected by units. A top Botox professional will inject a smaller amount of Botox into your desired treatment areas, then meet with you a week or so later to see how your results are settling in. If you haven’t achieved your desired results, more Botox units can be injected until you’re happy with your appearance.
Botox works because it uses botulinum toxin to temporarily interrupt nerve signals between the brain and muscles at the injection site. When these signals are blocked, the muscle becomes paralyzed and is prevented from making repetitive movements. As a result, the skin smooths over and relieves the appearance of wrinkles and creases from frowning and furrowing the brow. Botox is also an excellent solution for crow’s feet – those stubborn wrinkles around the eyes.
If you’re concerned about looking overdone after Botox injections, make sure you share those thoughts with your Botox aesthetician. That way, a more conservative approach can be taken. No matter what, results aren’t permanent – you’ll see the effects of Botox wear off after three to six months.
