One way to protect your skin from the outside is by avoiding harsh sun and applying sunscreen daily. Another way to enhance your skin integrity is by stimulating and increasing your skin’s collagen and elastin. This keeps your skin volumized, smooth and plump.

At Southern Cosmetic Laser, conveniently located between Charleston and Summerville, we offer many ways to increase your skin’s collagen and elastin. Dermal fillers are one non-surgical way that can help diminish facial wrinkles and skin folds. Face fillers can help restore lost volume to make your lips look fuller, smooth laugh lines, and plump and raise the cheeks and jawline area.

Dermal Fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, Versa, Radiesse, Restylane can be injected in the following areas:

  • Midface/ Cheeks: enhance volume in cheeks and help to lift the face
