Dermal fillers 

 

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases or enhance facial contours.  More than 1 million men and women annually have choose this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime.

Dermal filler injections are non-surgical and typically completed during an office visit. Your initial treatment will begin with a consultation, during which you will meet with Facial Aesthetics Team to discuss your concerns and goals.

Please carefully read Facial Aesthetic Team’s pre- and post-care instructions to get the best, longest lasting results.

How it works: 

Dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvaderm & Versa are made up of Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body and has many benefits.

Hyaluronic acid naturally maintains hydration and volume in your skin, which is lost as people age. However, when injected, it bonds with the water in the skin and increases its volume 1000 times. This helps to expand the skin and push out the wrinkles. As a lip enhancer, the dermal fillers help to create full and beautiful lips. An added benefit is its ability to stimulate collagen production to create more elastic, younger looking skin.

Using a thin needle, the substance is injected into the subdermal layer of skin where wrinkles appear. The amount used depends on the severity of the wrinkles in the area. A local anesthetic is used to ensure patient comfort. The results of a hyaluronic acid filler are almost immediate and there is no downtime.

There is little to no risk of an allergic reaction. Side effects are rare and any redness or tenderness is limited to the injection sites and will usually subside in a few days.
