Facial fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are a safe and effective way to produce a more youthfully vibrant appearance. These nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments are formulated to address common signs of aging such as wrinkles, folds, and areas that appear sunken in. When injected by board-certified Andover plastic surgeon Dr. George Chatson, facial fillers are able to produce a softer, fuller, more attractive look that can last for several months or longer – all without surgical intervention or risks.

How Dermal Fillers Work
While most facial fillers work on similar mechanics, not every option will be suitable for all patients. Dr. Chatson offers a range of dermal filler options, enabling him to customize your treatment and produce the most remarkable results.
Popular options offered at our Nashua and Andover offices include:
- Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers – HA, naturally found in the human body, provides the network that transfers nutrients from the bloodstream to the skin. Popular HA fillers such as Restylane work to support facial structures and tissue that have been impacted by the aging process while simultaneously brining water to the surface of the skin for a suppler look. HA fillers tend to produce results for six to 12 months.
- Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) fillers – CaHA fillers such as Radiesse work on two levels. Once injected, these dermal filler provide immediate support to facial structures and tissue, but they also stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. It is this second effect that allows CaHA fillers to continue producing results for 12 months or more.
In addition to these facial filler options, Dr. Chatson offers nonsurgical treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and fat grafting. During your initial consultation he will carefully examine your areas of concern, discuss the benefits and limitations of various nonsurgical treatments, and help you choose which of these options is ideal for your specific needs.
