Fillers

Welcome to our Patient Portal page!

We are beginning the process of using an electronic medical record in our practice as required by federal law.  As part of that process, we have established a "Patient Portal" in which patients can enter certain information that will help us, including your medical history.  Prior to your next office visit, we ask that you please access our patient portal by clicking on this link to complete our office forms relating to your medical history.  If we have not previously provided you with your Username and Password, please contact our office through our "Contact Us" page on this website or by calling the office at 518-690-0177.

When in our Patient Portal, you will not be able to edit the information under the tabs labeled Contact Information, Insurance, or Problem List.  We would appreciate it if you do your best to complete the information under the other 6 tabs. 

Eventually, we expect that you will be able to use our Patient Portal to obtain your medical records and test results.  However, we are not at that point yet.  We hope that our electronic medical record will allow for patients to obtain such information by sometime in 2013. 

As always, you can contact our office to answer any questions or concerns.

Fillers: Overview

Also called soft-tissue fillers, dermal fillers, soft-tissue augmentation

As we age, our skin loses its youthful fullness. Fillers help to restore lost fullness to the face, lips, and hands. 

Fillers are popular for several reasons. Patients like that they can return to everyday activities immediately after getting most fillers. They like the immediate results that many types of fillers deliver. Patients also like that they can get this treatment during an office visit. Some fillers require a few office visits.

Uses: With a number of fillers now available, dermatologists can diminish signs of aging that appear on the face, lips, and hands. Fillers can effectively:

  • Restore fullness to cheeks, hollow areas under the eyes, and deep creases.
  • Diminish scars.
  • Erase fine lines.
  • Plump lips. 
  • Lift the brow or a downturned mouth.
  • Rejuvenate hands.

 

Insurance coverage: Insurance does not cover treatment that reduces signs of aging.
