What are Dermal Fillers

If you are looking to rejuvenate your skin without undergoing any aggressive surgical procedures, Dermal Fillers may be your best option. The majority of dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule that attracts and binds water in the skin.

Dermal fillers are injected into the face to improve its appearance by instantly restoring volume, resulting in a more youthful look. At about age 25 the production of collagen and elastin start to slow down. These two proteins work together to keep tissue firm and skin elastic. Without these two proteins the body begins to show signs of aging such as deep lines, hollowness under the eyes, sunken cheeks and thin lips. The body is unable to keep skin supple and tissue strong. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers work in harmony with the body’s remaining collagen and elastin to support these proteins to give skin a more full and younger look.

How long do Dermal Fillers last?

Dermal Fillers can last anywhere between 6 to 18 months, depending on the type of hyaluronic acid used and where it is placed in the individual patient.

Common areas to treat:

Dark Eye Circles and Bags

The eye area is one of the first places to show the signs of aging and 50% of women over the age of 30 are concerned by dark circles and bags. Eye circles are not always due to color changes in your skin. Rather, they develop from a loss of natural volume in the tear troughs which is the hollow area that runs below your eye. This volume loss appears as a dark circle or bag making you look tired and older than your age. Addressing this common problem with dermal fillers can make a dramatic difference in your appearance.

Lips

As you age, your lips begin to lose volume and fullness. They may become uneven, less contoured or thin and the cupids bow above your upper lip can flatten. Wrinkles become more visible around the mouth including the marionette lines which run vertically from the corner of your mouth to your jawline. Dermal Fillers will increase the volume, redefine and rehydrate your lips to give you a beautiful natural and balanced look.

Cheeks & Smile Lines

Cheeks frequently begin to sag and wrinkle as you age due to the loss of collagen and elastin in your skin. The result is a sunken look with deepening nasolabial folds (smile lines). Fortunately Dermal Fillers counteract drooping cheeks and smile lines by providing an immediate lift and replenish lost volume to re-sculpt and re-contour. The results will improve facial harmony with natural and long-lasting results.
