Dermal filler is a gel-like product that is injected under the skin to treat volume loss and smooth lines of the face as we age. The use of these products by a trained, experienced injector can provide enhancement and contour to our natural features. Dermal fillers have become a popular treatment for the restoration of a more youthful appearance.
Augmentation of the lips may be one of the most popular areas to receive dermal filler. Lip fillers can accentuate the natural lip by adding volume and hydration. In the hands of an experienced injector, lip augmentation should provide a natural enhancement to the current shape without an overfilled appearance.
The cheeks are another popular place to receive dermal filler treatment. The midface area is one of the first to be affected by volume loss as we age. For many people, replacing the volume loss of the cheeks can help provide a more youthful, refreshed appearance without surgical intervention, such as a facelift. Your experienced injector will complete a full facial assessment to ensure that treatments will align appropriately with your goals.
Marionette lines are vertical lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin, secondary to volume loss of the lower face. People may notice these lines typically start to appear in their mid-30s. Dermal filler can be utilized to improve the profile of the chin, jaw, and lower face to help smooth creases and restore a more youthful appearance.
Many people use topical remedies to attempt to alleviate their under-eye bags or dark circles beneath the eyes. However, the effectiveness of these products is limited due to the amount of product that is actually absorbed into the skin. By completing a consultation with one of our experienced injectors, we can determine if the utilization of dermal filler to restore volume in the undereye region is appropriate, as this can help make you appear less tired and more refreshed, resulting in a more youthful glow.
Nasolabial folds are lines that extend from both sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. These lines generally become more prominent with age and can be associated with volume loss of the midface. Skin in this area is noticeably thicker than other areas of the face and these lines can become more prominent as early as the mid to late 20’s. Care is taken to properly assess the face to determine the proper areas of treatment for optimal results.
