Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are semi permanent injectable products that soften and correct lines, wrinkles and folds in the skin. In addition, Dermal Fillers are commonly used to augment and enhance the lips, cheeks and to contour the jawline.

Dermal Fillers are used to smooth crow’s feet and frown lines between the eyes, near the mouth (vertical lines on the top lip), nasolabial lines and lip enhancements. Dermal Fillers help regain natural healthy looking facial skin. It is a recommended treatment for any fine lines and wrinkles problems.

Dermal Fillers are popular treatments for wrinkles and facial lines. A Dermal Filler procedure helps to fill out and smooth away troublesome:

  • Nose to Mouth Grooves
  • Forehead Lines
  • Frown Furrows
  • Lipstick Lines
  • Acne Pits
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Temples

Dermal Fillers are also effective for increasing fullness to narrow lips, enhancing sunken cheeks and can even be used to contour the bridge of the nose.

The benefits of Dermal Fillers

Dermal Filler treatments offer patients a wide range of benefits, including a more youthful appearance.

This treatment can be used to fill minor to moderate lines and wrinkles and is especially effective around the eyes, nose, and mouth.

When used as a lip enhancement product, it can lend volume and definition to lips, producing a sensual, more pronounced pout.

The treatment can be tailored to your needs providing a natural look.

The treatment is non-invasive with virtually no recovery time necessary; you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.

The Dermal Filler implants are not permanent and will naturally break down.

Technologically advanced man made fillers (such as Restylane) are animal-free and they require no test prior to treatment.
