A dermal filler is an injectable solution that fills the soft tissue under the skin. You can choose a synthetic or natural filler, and you will need to select an absorbable or non-absorbable option as well. Each variation improves the appearance of aging, wrinkling and sagging skin. Dermal fillers are ideal for filling in creases and lines, plumping up the lips and cheeks, and enhancing facial contours.
As the effects of aging become apparent in the form of facial lines and wrinkles, you may have considered non-surgical treatment options like dermal fillers. These injectables are designed to eliminate or reduce the appearances of fine lines, folds and wrinkles. With age, your skin loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid by producing these substances as slower rates. Many dermal fillers feature natural ingredients to replenish the skin’s supply and restore a youthful look.
HA is a natural substance found throughout your body, and it provides the skin elasticity, volume and hydration. As you age and your body produces less HA, you may notice wrinkles, folds and a tired appearance. Dermal filler injected into the wrinkles will smooth it out and reduce its appearance. Dermal fillers also help improve definition and hydrate your skin.
Different formulas are available to treat varying degrees of wrinkles. Our patients have received successful results for the treatment of crow’s feet, eyebrow lines, nasolabial folds, frown lines and lip enhancement with dermal fillers. Some fillers include anesthetics to improve your comfort throughout the injection procedure. HA dermal fillers offer long-lasting, natural results for younger looking skin. Patients often choose these treatment options to increase elasticity and improve the look of fullness. We recommends follow-up sessions every six to 12 months to maintain your desired results.
