Juvederm® Family of Products
Dr. Lital Kathein and Dr. Jessica Wyatt are experts in using injectable facial fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® and VOLUMA, to instantly smooth away their patients’ wrinkles. Dr. Kathein is a faculty member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and travels around the U.S. to train other medical providers on how to inject Botox and fillers.
At your consultation appointment, our doctor will carefully analyze your face and will recommend the right facial filler for your individual situation (we carry 10 different fillers!) We strongly believe in delivering natural looking results. Our patients appreciate our conservative approach and expect results that are not “fake” or “overdone.”
Dentists are wonderful injectors because of their extensive knowledge of the anatomy of the head and neck. We use needles to inject almost every patient in the dental practice. Most importantly, dentists know how to view their subject 3-dimensionally. When they are treating a tooth, even a 1mm change can make a huge impact on the overall appearance and function. The same applies to facial filler injections – tiny changes have a large impact on the overall look. Dentistry, like facial aesthetics, requires the practitioner to have an aesthetic eye, a steady hand, and an analytic approach.
Today, a significant part of Elite Dental & Aesthetics involves facial aesthetics procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers. We believe that the same skills that define an excellent dentist – attention to detail, knowledge of anatomy and function, and a gentle touch along with an artistic eye, are paramount for a good injector. We feel that becoming effective providers of facial aesthetic treatments has also been beneficial towards our development as dentists.
We are very knowledgeable and experienced in using a variety of different fillers. We can apply fillers in many ways, here are a few:
- Cheek lift and contour with VOLUMA®
- Smooth skin with fillers JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
- Fill fine lines using JUVÉDERM® Ultra

Sculptra® Aesthetics – Youthful Skin Starts Within
Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How are fillers different from Botox?
A: Botox works on the muscles that cause wrinkles and fillers fill in lost volume and smooth wrinkles. In many cases, we use a combination of Botox and fillers to achieve a harmonious, balanced result. We use about 10 different fillers, all made from hyaluronic acid, which is a very biocompatible substance that is temporary and reversible. The different fillers we use all have varying thicknesses and consistencies. For example, VOLUMA is thicker and is indicated for lifting the cheeks, whereas Restylane Silk is thin and runny and is perfect for filling in the fine lines around the lips.
Q: What is your philosophy about using fillers
B: Our main goal is to keep our patients looking natural – nothing is more aesthetically pleasing than natural beauty. We are very experienced in using the different fillers available and we are able to pick and choose specific fillers based on the patient’s needs and anatomy. For example, some practices only use VOLUMA for every single patient’s cheek enhancements. We don’t have a one size, fits all approach. We know that VOLUMA can be too thick for some patients. We assess each face, taking into account the patient’s age, volume loss and skin consistency. Because we thoroughly know our products, we can make the best recommendation for each patient's particular desire. The patient should appear more refreshed and rejuvenated, not as if they just had work done. The key to your youthful-ness is our little secret!
