Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid. But as you age, time, sunlight, and other factors can reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin. The lack of hyaluronic acid causes your skin to lose structure and volume-creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.

Dermal fillers help replace the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost, adding volume to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds and provide a smooth, natural-looking result.

Dr. Carlson is a board certified ophthalmologist, providing added reassurance to all cosmetic treatments at Claris Eye Care, ensuring the highest quality results for facial treatments.


JUVÉDERM® is the smooth gel filler that Dr. Carlson uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment.

Everyone will notice, but no one will know!


Everyone’s skin ages differently and fillers are used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours. Learn more about the individual treatment areas.



JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
