Time and the effects of aging can alter one's appearance in several undesirable ways. Not only do lines and wrinkles form around the eyes, mouth, and forehead over time, but facial muscles can also become lax, destroying the youthful contours of the face. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment method used to restore youthful contours, and minimize the signs of aging.

Dermal Fillers for Wrinkles and Lip Plumping

Injectable fillers can be used to fill depressions and voids, remove wrinkles, and plump the lips. They can fill in prominent folds, creases, and scars and restore volume and a more youthful fullness to your facial contours. This non-invasive procedure causes minimal discomfort and little or no downtime, and allows for convenient scheduling for busy people.

Dr. Morrissette and Dermal Fillers

In many offices, nurses or other medical staff members inject patients with dermal fillers. At our practice, after administering local anesthetic, Dr. Morrissette personally performs 100% of all dermal filler treatments.

Dermal fillers and other non-surgical procedures can help restore a more youthful appearance with very little discomfort, little or no downtime, with dramatic, natural-looking results.

Dr. Morrissette is truly an expert when it comes to providing local anesthesia for the injection of dermal fillers. He may offer topical numbing cream, mini-dental blocks or nitrous oxide before your procedure to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
