DERMAL FILLERS

The appearance of wrinkles and facial folds can be smoothed by adding structure and volume underneath and bringing sunken skin back to the surface. A dermal filler is a smooth injectable gel, also known as hyaluronic acid that is eased under your skin to instantly smooth out wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the body that’s purpose is to pull water to add plumpness to the area. This adds volume and fullness to depleted areas of the face including mid-face (cheekbones), nasolabial folds, marionette lines and lips. The results are subtle but noticeable. During your consultation, our Nurse Injector will want to learn about your desired expectations and goals of your treatment. She will evaluate your skins current condition and facial structure to determine what products will work best for your needs.

How soon will I see results and how long will they last?

Results can be seen immediately after and will get better over the course of 2-3 weeks as the filler integrates with your own tissue.

 

The results will last 6 months – 2 years depending on which filler is used.
