Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an effective way of rejuvenating and enhancing the face by softening lines, replacing volume loss from aging, and contouring the natural lines and planes of the face.

Dermal filler injections have emerged as one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the field of facial aesthetics today. When injected judiciously and appropriately by a trained dermatologist, the results are very natural and provide a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. Often, patients who have had dermal filler treatment will state that others have noticed how young and radiant they look, but no one will know what was actually, if anything, was done. When the dermal filler is injected and placed skillfully and strategically, the results are astounding. The advantages of significant, noticeable, and natural facial rejuvenation with minimal discomfort and minimal downtime make treatment with dermal fillers a remarkably valuable and sought-after procedure for the cosmetic patient.

As people age, the fat, muscle, and bones in the face change and atrophy, resulting in laxity and sagging of the skin because of the loss of deeper support structures. The skin that drapes these support structures starts to hang a bit downward and inward, resulting in wrinkles and sagging. Sun damage, smoking, general health, and various environmental factors can exacerbate and accelerate these aging effects. By injecting dermal fillers into strategic areas of the face, dermatologists can replace this lost tissue, restoring volume, filling defects, and lifting any laxity to achieve a more rejuvenated appearance. Areas that respond beautifully include the laugh lines, lips, tear troughs, temples, cheekbones, chin, jaws, and even the hands. As newer, more state-of-the-art dermal fillers are developed, more remarkably natural results for facial rejuvenation are achieved. Examples of excellent dermal fillers, include Belotero, Juvederm Ultra, Voluma, and Radiesse. Depending on which dermal filler is used for the appropriate task and application, its effects of facial rejuvenation can last from six months to up to two years. No wonder that this cosmetic procedure of injecting dermal fillers is in such high demand.
