Dermal Fillers

WHAT ARE FILLERS?

Fillers are a family of injectables used to treat severe facial wrinkles and folds. The injection contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally exists in our body. Within human body, large amounts of hyaluronic acid are found between the cells, where it provides skin with its youthful suppleness and moisture. Unfortunately, our bodies own natural levels of hyaluronic acid decrease with age, combined with other factors the facial muscles become closer to the surface of the skin resulting in increased appearance of wrinkles and smile lines.

With treatment by fillers, the lost hyaluronic acid is added back into the skin restoring the lost volume thus smoothening unsightly wrinkles.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED BY FILLERS?

Fillers can be used in any area of the face including lines and creases around the mouth, around the nose, forehead and temples, re-contouring cheeks, jawline, chin and enhancing size and shape of lips.

They can be used for facial contouring as well as to improve appearance of scars, such as those caused by acne.

HOW FAST DOES TREATMENT WORK?

The results of the treatment can be seen immediately. However, the appearance of treated area continues to improve for a few days.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?

The treatment lasts anywhere from 6 to 24 months depending upon the brand

ARE DERMAL FILLERS SAFE?

There are minimal risks associated with dermal fillers, most of which can be avoided by choosing an experienced injector.

Fillers are FDA approved for instantly smoothening away moderate to severe wrinkles as well as plump the lips and restore lost volume in patients for a fresher more youthful appearance.
