If you are looking for a subtle way to minimize the signs of aging, consider investing in dermal fillers. Our dermal fillers procedure is fully customizable, so you can rest assured that we will work with you to design the simplest, most effective treatment plan to deliver beautiful results.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Cosmetic injectables like dermal fillers are used to reduce the appearance of imperfections and signs of aging. When injected underneath the skin, dermal fillers provide volume by “plumping up” your skin from underneath.
This procedure can combat volume loss and skin laxity, which helps give your skin a smoother, tighter appearance while minimizing wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers target different areas of the face, including the lips, nose, cheeks, chin, and jawline, to create a younger-looking appearance.
How Are Dermal Fillers Different From Other Injectables?
Although different types of cosmetic injectables have similar purposes, like reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, they work in different ways. For example, while dermal fillers smooth wrinkles by adding volume beneath your skin, neuromodulators smooth wrinkles by preventing your muscles from contracting.
When neuromodulators are injected into the muscles beneath your facial wrinkles, they temporarily disrupt communication between your muscles and nerves. With your muscles at rest, the skin above becomes relaxed, and your facial wrinkles smooth out.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, create volume and stimulate collagen production, leaving your muscles undisturbed.
Are There Different Types of Dermal Fillers?
Yes, different types of dermal fillers are made using different formulas and ingredients. This means that certain fillers are better suited to target specific issues in different areas of the face. We offer a range of dermal fillers, including:
Juvéderm is a family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that includes three different types of fillers specifically formulated for different areas of the face.
Juvéderm Voluma targets your cheeks and chin, Juvéderm Ultra is used to augment your lips, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus treats deep facial wrinkles and folds in your cheeks and midface.
Restylane fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid gel and XpresHAn Technology. This family of fillers is versatile and provides a range of benefits, including smoothing fine lines and subtly augmenting lips. These types of dermal fillers are designed to work with your body, so your face will maintain its natural movement and expressions.
Belotero is another type of hyaluronic acid filler that works to bind itself to the water naturally found in your skin. The soft, pliable gel blends with your facial tissue to help smooth moderate to severe wrinkles, including fine lines under the eyes, around the lips, by your nose, and on your chin.
Radiesse combines powerful ingredients, including calcium hydroxylapatite, to plump up deep creases while at the same time stimulating elastin and collagen production.
This combined effect means that in addition to seeing the immediate results of your dermal fillers, you can also expect to see continued results as your body produces more collagen and elastin, further smoothing and supporting your skin.
Sculptra is another type of dermal filler that stimulates collagen production. This bio-stimulator is made of poly-L-lactic acid, which jumpstarts your body’s production of collagen while simultaneously adding lift.
Because it takes time for your body to begin producing more collagen, your results may take longer to develop, but in the end, you can expect subtle, natural-looking results.
Choosing the right type of dermal filler will help ensure you experience the best possible results. During your consultation, we will review the different types of fillers we offer and make a recommendation based on your particular aesthetic goals.
Can You Combine Dermal Fillers with Other Cosmetic Treatments?
Yes, you can combine our dermal fillers procedure with our other cosmetic treatments! If you have different aesthetic issues you’d like to address, dermal fillers alone may not be able to give you the full transformation you desire.
Many of our patients complement their procedure with other cosmetic treatments to enhance their dermal fillers results, such as:
- PDO threads
When you come in for your consultation, we will discuss your goals and desired treatment areas to recommend a safe combination of services that will work best for your skin.
What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
We offer our patients dermal fillers because of the many benefits they provide.
Quick and Effective
The procedure itself only takes approximately 15-30 minutes, so you can conveniently plan your appointment around a busy schedule. You’ll be able to see your dermal fillers results immediately after your treatment and can expect your optimal results to develop after just a couple of weeks.
Minimal Recovery and Downtime
This non-invasive treatment doesn’t require surgery, so you don’t have to worry about factoring in any inconvenient downtime or a lengthy recovery process.
After your dermal fillers have been placed, you’ll be able to enjoy your results and return to your normal activities. To maximize your comfort, we recommend taking a short break from using your skincare products, but you can continue using your makeup and retinoids after just 48 hours.
Natural, More Youthful Appearance
With dermal fillers, you can plump up certain areas of your skin and replace lost volume. When placed correctly, fillers complement the natural shape and curves of your face, providing definition that subtly enhances your appearance by smoothing unwanted wrinkles and evening out imperfections.
Dermal fillers provide noticeable results that last longer than many other types of injectables. For most patients, their dermal fillers will last anywhere from 12 to 18 months. However, with certain types of fillers (particularly those that stimulate collagen production), you can expect your dermal fillers results to outlast this typical lifespan.
