Everyone ages and there’s nothing we can do to stop that. There are, however, steps that we can take to prevent the signs of aging from being obvious. Surgery of course is an option, as are fillers and neuromodulators like Botox and Newtox.
One of the most obvious signs of facial aging can be traced back to volume loss. The facial tissue thins out combined with skin elasticity loss and we end up with lines forming around the nose and mouth and hallowing of the cheeks.
While there are wonderful surgical options for those problems some individuals are not ready to take time away for recovery and not everyone is a candidate for surgery either. The other options are dermal fillers or also commonly referred to as injectables.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. With their instant results, relatively little to no downtime they are a popular option for over a million people (not just women, but men included!) annually who seek to stem the tide of aging without the downtime required for surgery.
Our world-class injector, Maureen, has been specially trained by Dr. Sullivan and has become a master of the craft in her own right, achieving some of the best results in the field. In fact, she is often invited to national meetings to teach others on the art of injecting. She also does Dr. Sullivan’s injectables.

“We have problems like skin elasticity changes – things just start to fall. And we have delation of our face that happens to everyone in certain areas of the face.
“Then there are areas of fat collection which can be in the neck, in the jawline (jowls), places like that.
“So what we try to do is see if we can do things for people – if they want surgery, that’s fine if they are good candidates. We don’t operate on everyone by any means. We just want to operate on people who are really good candidates for surgery.
“We also have people see Maureen who is an injector in our office that does such a great job. She has been specially trained by me, plus she gives talks at national meetings teaching and demonstrating her special ability to inject and have people look much better. AND always very natural.”
