Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal fillers?

 

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections used to restore facial harmony by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions and superficial fines lines, enhancing certain features and replacing soft-tissue volume loss.

Dermal fillers are used for in conjunction with neuromodulators, like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, to contour the jawline/lower face, correct volume loss in the midface/cheek areas, AND treat depressions caused by scars and wrinkles. We MAY also use facial fillers to help balance out asymmetry and deformities caused by medical conditions such as Bells Palsy.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid as well as other substances such as poly-L-lactic acid, to diminish the signs of aging by filling in fine lines and wrinkles and adding volume to areas of the face affected by volume loss, restoring youthful contours and proportions.

Main cosmetic benefits of dermal fillers

Restore Volume: Facial fillers, like Juvéderm and Restylane, have a formula consisting of Hyaluronic acid. This is a natural substance capable of plumping up regions of the face that are sunken in due to volume loss. For example, fillers can significantly diminish under-eye bags by restoring volume lost in the upper cheek region.

Fill in Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Dermal fillers offer exceptional anti-aging results by filling in fine lines and wrinkles that commonly accumulate around the nose and mouth, nasolabial folds, commonly known as laugh lines.

Add Facial Symmetry and a Youthful Contour: Dermal fillers are used as lip injections, capable of dramatically plumping up and volumizing lips. In addition, this treatment adds an attractive contour to the lips. Dermal fillers can also be used to add volume along the jawline restoring symmetry.

Improve the Appearance of Acne Scars: Dermal fillers improve the appearance of acne scars by filling in depressions caused by acne scars. Fillers smooth out the appearance of these scars and reduce the shadowing often left behind with severe acne scarring. Popular dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with other professional acne scar treatments to provide optimal acne scar reductions.

What can dermal fillers enhance and rejuvenate?

The Hyaluronic Acid gel in the dermal fillers works underneath the skin to plump up areas and push up depressions. According to research, this action effectively does the following:

  • Volumizes pre-jowl depressions

  • Fills in pitted acne scars

  • Fills in under-eye hollows

  • Softens nasolabial folds

  • Softens vertical lip lines

  • Lifts, contours, and restores cheek volume

  • Smooths marionette lines

  • Enhances and defines lips

 

 

Dermal filler side effects?

Dermal filler side effects are rare and significantly less likely to occur when injected by a professional provider. Although uncommon, some patients can experience temporary side effects, including mild bruising immediately following the injections. However, this side effect, if present, usually goes away on its own quickly.
