Injectable dermal fillers are a minimally invasive way to reduce the appearance of facial fine lines and restore volume and fullness to the face. They can be used to plump thin lips, soften facial creases and remove wrinkles, as well as enhance shallow contours and reduce the appearance of scars.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables that counteract the loss of subcutaneous fat in our faces. This occurs naturally as we age, resulting in the facial muscles working closer to the skin’s surface and making smile lines and crow’s feet more visible. In addition, our facial skin stretches as we age and may show visible signs of exposure to sun or other lifestyle factors. Dermal fillers can play an effective role in minimizing these early
signs of aging or be used to enhance the results of facial rejuvenation surgery.
Dermal fillers can be used to:
- Plump thin limps
- Soften the appearance of facial creases and wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of recessed scars
- Decrease the shadow of the lower eyelids
- Enhance the appearance of shallow contours
- Reconstruct facial contour deformities
It’s important to be aware that minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments, such as dermal fillers, may not achieve the desired results for all patients. In some cases, a facelift, brow lift or eye lift may be a more effective option. Dermal fillers are a temporary treatment option and ongoing treatment will be needed to achieve long-term results.
