Think of dermal fillers as the cosmetic dermatologist’s secret weapon. Of all the skin rejuvenation techniques, they are Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald’s passion and chosen area of expertise. A major component of her approach to natural, believable anti-aging relies on the concept of light and shadow.
"You just want people to think you were born lucky"
The Concept of Light and Shadows
How we subconsciously judge someone's age and attractiveness is actually a complex process of the interplay of light and shadow. This interplay can signify youth or age. Loss of light reflection assigned to youth signals age even more so than the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
Convex areas reflect light, making us look more vibrant and younger. These areas are your cheeks, forehead, temples and lips – even the small philtral columns between the lip and nose. Concave areas that develop or deepen as we age and lose facial volume create more shadows, and it is this shadowing that we subconsciously perceive as signs of aging and loss of energy.
By restoring balance and definition with precisely placed fillers, Dr. Fitzgerald produces results that are subtle yet powerfully convey youth and overall facial harmony. You’ll look better, more refreshed and more confident without ever looking “done.” As Dr. Fitzgerald says, “You just want people to think you were born lucky!”
Filler selection, placement and technique make all the difference in the results you’ll see. Dr. Fitzgerald has a worldwide reputation as being among the best of the best. You can receive your custom dermal filler recommendations for your unique individual needs by meeting with Dr. Fitzgerald in person.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers
You'll experience a wide range of facial rejuvenation benefits from dermal fillers. They can be used to:
- Restore the youthful “triangle” to your facial shape
- Restore youthful fullness to your cheeks, lips and mouth area
- Remove hollows under your eyes,
- Lift dropping corners of your mouth
- Fill nasolabial folds and contour your jawline or chin
- Lift the droop of your nose
- Smooth lines and wrinkles
Dermal fillers can in some cases even allow you to “try on” an altered nose or more projected chin before you make surgical decisions – or instead of surgical procedures.
Do Dermal Fillers Compare to Face Lifts?
Dermal fillers can have an astounding effect on your face. Sometimes it’s not a facelift that’s needed but volume replacement. Even after a facelift, restoring volume loss is more often than not the completion of the process.
Dermal fillers could be a viable option for you either as an alternative to surgery or an addition to surgery. See how these two treatments compare:
|If you start using Dermal Fillers in your 30’s, you should never need a Face Lift, and you can basically stop the aging clock in its tracks.|
|Cost $3,000 to $5,000||Cost $20,000 to $30,000|
|Effects Last 1 to 3 years||Effects Last 5 to 10 years|
|Natural Looking Results||Sometimes Unnatural Looking Results|
|No Surgical Risks||Surgery required|
|Little to No Downtime||Long Post-Recovery Period|
