What are dermal fillers?

*Dermal fillers are becoming more popular each year as the cosmetic industry makes greater varieties available at lower price points than ever before. They provide instant, impressive results to smooth wrinkles and add volume where patients want it. Facial injectable products most commonly contain hyaluronic acid, which helps to fill facial lines or restore volume lost in areas like the cheeks and lips. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is injected under the skin at various depths with fine needles or cannulas. The results typically last between 6-18 months before a touch up is needed.*

How Do Dermal Fillers work?

*Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an amazing, fundamental molecule involved in the maintenance of our skin's moisture content through its ability to attract and hold water. HA is naturally present in our skin, joints, cartilage and brain tissue. Laboratory designed HA dermal fillers are often crosslinked on a molecular level that results in various thicknesses. These product consistencies range from viscous and thick to smooth and thin. Our team of medical professionals will choose the ideal product for the area of the face being treated.*

*Dermal fillers can help add volume on the face for patients of all ages. Common treatment areas include: under eyes, the lips, cheeks, chin and jawline, nasolabial folds, (laugh lines) and marionette lines at the bottom corners of the mouth. HA fillers can even improve the appearance of the neck and backs of hands. HA is naturally absorbed by the body over time. This is one of the reasons this filler type is such a widely used cosmetic tool.*

What areas can be treated?

Treatment Areas:

*One of the most popular treatment areas for people of all ages is the lips. Lip fillers have given us the ability to fill fine lines, plump and improve balance for uneven lips like nothing available in the past. This is often a 1st step procedure for many people considering facial injectables.*
*Well-defined cheekbones have a strong influence over the overall facial structure and perceived beauty. Many men and women find themselves frustrated with cheeks that are not well-contoured, have lost volume with age, or overall facial sagging. Dermal fillers designed for injection in the cheeks as they are thick and hold shape well. They are designed to be placed deep in the tissue, where they provide structure and support. Filling and lifting the cheeks can do wonders for the face- instantly restoring balanced, soft facial volume and helping to reduce the downward pull of tissues.*
*Chin fillers have become more popular as options to help add volume and sculpt an underdeveloped chin or jawline. An ample chin can add facial shape definition, improve facial profile and help create symmetry by bringing balance to facial features. For those not ready to consider chin surgery, the latest volume-building HA fillers can achieve dramatic results that last up to a year.*
4Nasolabial folds
*The nasolabial folds are the deep creases that run from either side of the nose down towards the corners of the mouth. They are also known as, “smile” or “laugh” lines. Normally, this fold is created by repeated movement of the mouth. As a result of the natural ageing process, this crease becomes more noticeable as fat is lost from the cheeks, reducing cheek volume. However, dermal fillers can help diminish the appearance of deep nasolabial folds by restoring the lost volume and smoothing out the appearance of these creases.*
5Under eye
*Under eye (tear trough) fillers can help impart a more rested appearance for people who have developed shadows or depressions under their eyes. These can be due to genetics, but are also a common sign of aging. A deep tear trough can create a shadow that is perceived as a dark circle below the eye. Tear trough fillers will add volume to the under-eye depression as well as reduce the look of dark circles- resulting in a refreshed appearance.*
6Marionette lines
*“Marionette Lines,” are the lines that run from the corners of the mouth vertically downwards towards the chin. These lines are caused by repeated movement of the mouth, coupled with the downward pull of fat and skin by gravity. The formation of these lines gives the mouth a downturned or frowning look. Dermal fillers in and around these lines work by replacing lost volume, and smoothing the mouth and chin area.*
*As a result of aging, many patients notice a sagging jaw or jowls. In some patients, aging is not the man concern but a poorly defined jawline. Dermal fillers are an excellent choice to re-contour and build defined volume at the jawline without the need for facial surgery.*
*We invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our facial injectable experts in order to determine the best treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.
