If you’re looking for facial rejuvenation with little to no downtime, facial fillers and injectables are an excellent option.
Botox, Dysport or Xeomin are safe and popular treatments that smooth wrinkles that form as a result of natural facial movements like smiling, squinting and frowning. Fillers, which come in a variety of safe materials, are injected to fill deep lines or wrinkles into the depression or crease in a wrinkled area. They are commonly used to replace volume, which then helps to restore a natural, youthful and rested look. Additionally, Dr. Standefer is experienced with using fillers to improve acne scarring, plump the lips and improve the appearance of the nose (commonly referred to as a non-surgical nose job). Fillers can be temporary, semi-permanent, and permanent.
At Fresh Image, we offer a wide variety of fillers and injectables to ensure we meet your unique needs.

Through a simple injection, Botox diminishes furrow lines around the eyes and forehead that result from stress or genetics, giving you a softer, younger, more radiant look. It treats facial wrinkles around the forehead, between the eyes, and in the “crows feet” areas (upper third of the face). The substance is botulinum toxin and it works by weakening the muscles of facial expressions. It also works well with dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvéderm and Radiesse which erase lines and folds by adding volume beneath the skin’s surface. Injection of this material into the small muscles between the brows, in the forehead, and at the corner of the eyes cause those specific muscles to halt their function (be paralyzed), thereby improving the appearance of the wrinkles. This paralysis is temporary, and many patients opt for re-inject within 3 to 6 months.
Dysport is made from the same active ingredient as Botox, botulinum toxin type A. It relaxes the facial muscles, which reduces and smoothes away frown-lines and wrinkles. Dysport also works well with dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, and Radiesse, which erases lines and folds by adding volume beneath the skin’s surface.
Xeomin is an alternative to Botox and Dysport. Xeomin is designed to treat brow wrinkles, crow’s feet, bunny lines (on the sides of the nose), and frown lines. The active ingredient, botulinum toxin, is exactly the same as in Botox and Dysport. Patients who are not affected by Botox or Dysport may have more better results with Xeomin. The results typically last between 3-4 months.
Bellafill™ is a long lasting, injectable filler composed of collagen and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. This FDA approved product corrects wrinkles in the lower face, also known as nasolabial folds or smile lines. It is also a great treatment solution for acne scars. The collagen injected immediately adds volume to lift the depressions and soften wrinkles, and the PMMA microspheres support continued collagen growth over time. Results are visible after the first treatment, and the benefits last up to five years or longer.
Juvéderm XC is a smooth gel filler, based on hyaluronic acid, that is used to smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. As we age, many factors reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin. This lack of hyaluronic acid causes the skin to lose volume and structure which creates unwanted wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm XC results appear quickly, and last for up to one year. Juvéderm XC is formulated with lidocaine (a common anesthetic), so patients experience a pleasant treatment while enjoying wonderful, long lasting results.
Juvéderm Voluma is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel filler that instantly adds volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift. A fine needle is used to inject Juvéderm Voluma, helping to restore facial contour and give a more youthful profile for up to 2 years. The results are instant, and there’s zero downtime.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to correct severe facial wrinkles, deep nasolabial folds (the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth), and marionette lines (the lines from the corners of your mouth down toward your jawline). It also fills in the depressed areas in the cheeks. Results are immediate and last up to one year. There is no downtime, so you can return to normal activities immediately following treatment.
Restylane is an FDA-approved, hyaluronic acid based gel filler. It is used for the treatment of wrinkles and lines in the upper, middle and lower face by restoring both volume and structure to skin. It can also be injected to plump the lips and contour the chin. Results last up to 6 months.
Belotero is a dermal filler that is designed to assimilate into your tissue, providing subtle results without disturbing the natural contours of your face. It adds volume, smoothes lines, and reduces the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a component that appears naturally in skin. Belotero works instantly and results last up to 9 months.
