Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

The appearance of facial skin is negatively impacted by sun exposure, hormonal changes and aging. While no two faces will age in the same way, common concerns are fine lines, folds and wrinkles, sagging skin, sunken cheeks and lost definition of features.

Naturally present in the skin, hyaluronic acid maintains moisture and tone. The quantity of hyaluronic acid in the skin declines with age, resulting in dry, fragile skin that wrinkles and droops. The tissues progressively sag and the face begins to appear hollow.

Healthcare professionals can easily reverse these signs of aging with dermal fillers. Injected directly into the skin, dermal fillers contain a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which combines with water to restore volume and hydration. The appearance of lines, wrinkles and folds improves. Volume can be restored to targeted areas like the cheeks, brow and jaw.

Due to their lifting effects, filler gels can also re-define facial contours, making them a non-surgical alternative to plastic surgery.

There are many types of fillers, each chosen for the specific effect desired. Some are well suited for fine lines or lips, while other, thicker gels are used to restore volume loss in the cheeks and to redefine the jawline.

Dermal Fillers are ideal for:

  • nasolabial folds
  • marionette lines
  • smoker’s lines
  • replacing volume in cheeks
  • enhancing lip contour and volume
  • facial sculpting (cheeks, jaw, nose, temples and chin)
  • creating a soft lift

The Dermal Filler Process

Beginning with a consultation, we will discuss how your natural features can be enhanced and decide upon which products will give the best results.

The injections themselves are done with a fine needle so that pain is minimal. The fillers contain lidocaine, which also minimizes the discomfort. The entire process takes less than an hour.

Injected directly into a wrinkle, the filler lifts and fills the line, visibly reducing its appearance. When injected into areas of the face where the skin has relaxed, filler has a tightening and volumizing effect.

Results are apparent immediately, reaching a maximum within a few days. Your face will appear fresher and more youthful, but so natural that no one will guess you even had a treatment.

There is little to no down time, though some may experience temporary pain, bruising or swelling. This will typically resolve within a few days.

While the treatment is effective, it is not permanent. Depending upon the type of product used and the area of the face injected, results will last 6-12 months.
