What Are Dermal fillers?
Cosmetic fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are popular treatments for the facial creases and folds that often appear as we age, or that may be the result of scarring. Over time, these lines and wrinkles appear due to gravity and a loss of elasticity in the skin, as well as to repetitive use of facial muscles. Dermal fillers are a minimally-invasive, yet effective way to provide volume and tightening to these areas, resulting in a significant skin rejuvenation effect that is immediately visible.
How Are Fillers Used?
There are several different types of dermal fillers available, and we will work with you to determine the best cosmetic treatment for you. Dermal fillers can be used to:
Plump thin lips
Enhance shallow contours
Soften facial creases and wrinkles
Improve the appearance of recessed scars
All of our treatments are performed on an outpatient basis with no need to go to a hospital. At our leading skin care-facility we use anesthetic cream to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
After the treatment, you may experience some swelling or redness, but these symptoms are temporary. The results of your skin care treatment will last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on which product you choose and how deep your wrinkles are. Re-treatment is simple and effective. You’ll enjoy a more youthful look that’s natural, with soft facial contours and a healthy appearance.
