As you age, you lose volume in your face. Add gravity pulling down on your facial skin, and you wind up with unwanted wrinkles, skin folds, and jowls. Fortunately, we have dermal fillers to help you look younger in minutes!

About dermal fillers

Fillers are very popular nonsurgical facial treatments for many of our patients. That’s because it’s a quick way to restore volume to targeted areas. With the right filler, it’s possible to create a more youthful, fresher look that still appears natural. No need to have duck lips or bloated cheeks! Just the right amount of filler expertly placed lets our patients add volume to their face, reduce lines and wrinkles, yet look like themselves…only better and younger!

We most frequently inject dermal fillers in the following areas:

  • Facial lines and wrinkles
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Smile and laugh lines
  • Marionette lines (extend from the nose to the chin)
  • Cheek bones (plump up and increase cheek firmness)
  • Nasolabial folds (your smile lines from the mouth to the nose)
  • Sagging contours
  • Jawline (to create more definition)
  • Lips (to add volume and definition)
  • Tear troughs (the under-eye area that is prone to bags, lines and shadows)
  • Deep scars, often caused by acne

 A bit about the process

We use various fillers with the specific ones selected depending on the where you are having them injected. The ingredients used to produce dermal fillers replicate your body’s own hyaluronic acid. This significantly reduces the risk of complications or an allergic reaction. 

When getting fillers, you’ll be numbed with a topical cream before the injections to make it more comfortable for you. Afterwards, you’ll apply ice to reduce swelling and bruising. Even so, there is always a chance for some minor reaction including bruising, redness, slight itching, swelling, and the possibility of minimal pain or tenderness. For many patients, the entire process takes about 15 minutes. If you have several areas injected in one session, you’ll want to plan for about an hour.

Long lasting results

If you’re seeing the early signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles, one or more dermal filler might be right for you. You could look more youthful for 18 months or even longer. 

But for some patients, fillers may not be enough or not the right solution. If so, it’s time to talk with us about minimally invasive and surgical options that tighten skin, and lift the face, brows, or eyes.
