Dermal Fillers

fillersUnfortunately, getting wrinkles, folds, or depressions are part of the natural aging process associated with our facial presentation, and sometimes they can make us look older than we actually are. Many of us, concerned in how we are aging and are striving to live healthier lifestyles. However, even diet and exercise are sometimes not enough to really keep our skin from showing our age. The aging process causes our face and hands to lose underlying fat and collagen, which then causes our skin to droop or sag, resulting in visible wrinkles.

Injectable dermal fillers have become more popular because of the immediate effect they have in addressing our skin sagging and wrinkles resulting from aging, sun damage, skin trauma, scarring, or disease. Injectable dermal fillers are most commonly used to treat facial folds/creases, lips, hollow cheeks and under eyes bags. Other uses for dermal fillers may include receding chins, facial atrophy, and superficial scarring – and may even be used to hide nose bumps or fill in and plump thinning skin on our hands.

Dermal fillers are often used with Botox® to eliminate the contrast in our face associated with the aging process. Our most common use for dermal fillers are the folds/creases in our face that create shadows. Dermal fillers can be used to correct problem areas such as laugh lines, smile lines, smoker’s lines, and marionette lines. We also use them for higher cheekbones, lip plumping, chin contouring, eye hollows, and asymmetric eyebrows. Treatments take less than 15 minutes, depending on the number of injection sites and the amount of product being used. These injections are virtually painless, and the results are immediate and dramatic.
