Wrinkles are a part of the natural aging process but sometimes they make us look older than we actually are. Within the last few years people are starting to live healthier lifestyles to live longer lives but sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to keep our skin from showing our age. The aging process causes the face and hands to lose underlying fat and collagen which then causes our skin to sag and we get wrinkles.
Injectable wrinkle fillers and dermal fillers have become more popular with the instant effect they have addressing skin sagging and wrinkle problems that result from aging, sun damage, skin trauma, scarring, or disease. The Injectable wrinkle and dermal fillers are most commonly used to treat facial lines and wrinkles, hollow cheeks and eyes, receding chins, thinning lips, and wrinkles between the eyes and may even be used to hide nose bumps or fill in and plump thinning skin on the hands.
Dermal Fillers can be used to correct problem areas such as laugh lines, smile lines, smoker’s lines, and marionette lines but there are also ways to use Dermal Fillers to enhance certain features. The most popular being the cheekbones, chins, jaw lines and eyebrows. Treatment can take as short a time as 30 minutes depending on the number of injection sites and the injectables used. These injections are virtually painless and the results can be seen almost immediately.
There are numerous Dermal Fillers available to choose from including Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Radiesse and more. The effects of Dermal Fillers can last from 3-18 months depending on which filler is used and in which location it is injected. In some cases the Dermal Fillers will stimulate your skin to make its own collagen which means you may have improvement that lasts for years after the Dermal Filler has dissolved.
We only use fillers that are made to be biocompatible with human skin which lessens the chance for an allergic reaction and none of our fillers are made using animal products.
