Dermal fillers of today are a brilliant group of injectables that rejuvenate and enhance your look by softening lines, replacing volume loss from aging and contouring the natural lines of the face. As we age, we lose bone and fat in the face. Bone and fat are what support the skin in the face, and when they are lost, skin begins to sag and crease. While products and procedures aimed to improve texture, color, and tone of skin can help, a comprehensive anti-aging treatment plan involves addressing this lack of support underneath the skin. Fillers help to recreate the natural, youthful structure underneath the skin.
What to expect: Treatments are done by injection, in the office, and take just a few minutes. Many fillers contain lidocaine, a numbing medicine, so patients report a low level of tolerable pain during the procedure. Some patients will require several treatments over the course of weeks or months to achieve their desired look followed by occasional touch-ups.
There are many dermal fillers on the market, each of them providing different results. It is important to consult with a properly trained, experienced and Board-Certified Dermatologist in order to achieve optimal results. Our Dermatologists have years of experience and are happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding choice of filler and whether filler is appropriate for you.
