Have you noticed the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face recently but would like to address the problem without surgery? Minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation techniques like dermal fillers have helped many people turn back the clock on aging skin and avoid some of the downsides of surgery. Each filler has a different specialty, so our professionals will work with you to determine which one is right for your needs.
What Are Fillers?
Dermal fillers are known as injectables or a type of gel that is injected into the skin to promote enhanced skin volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While they do not offer a permanent solution, fillers can significantly enhance the appearance of your skin and help you look like a younger version of yourself.
What Types of Fillers Are Available?
There are quite a few fillers on the market today, each offering a somewhat different experience. Some common ingredients of dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and fat taken from other parts of your body via liposuction. The exact type that you require for your individual needs can be determined at your initial consultation with us.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Collagen is a natural component of skin that tends to become deficient in older people. Since its role in the skin is to create bulk and structure, the age-related loss of collagen leads to skin that becomes thinner and more wrinkled over time. We can help to reverse this process by injecting you with certain solutions that will help stimulate the production of collagen.
In cases where the patient has already scheduled a liposuction, a filler treatment can also be conveniently scheduled at the same time. A fat transfer dermal filler involves performing a liposuction procedure and injecting the patient’s own fat into their face to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. This type of dermal filler has an extremely low risk of allergic response.
