Dermal fillers are injectable wrinkle fillers that provide temporary results. Most patients notice results in as little as 30 minutes after receiving treatment. Dermal fillers offer a non-invasive solution to wrinkles and signs of aging on the skin. Though not permanent, they do offer great results that can be achieved in a quick session right in one of our three offices.

How It Works
During the natural aging process, the face naturally loses subcutaneous fat associated with a youthful complexion. This can create thinner lips, crow’s feet, sagging skin and other problems. Dermal fillers work by filling in the wrinkles, lines or sagging areas, thus creating more volume in the affected area. Since it addresses the problem directly, it produces fast results. In fact, it is often referred to as a temporary facelift. Since this treatment is so effective, it is often used to postpone face lift surgeries and other invasive procedures.
Who Can Benefit From Dermal Fillers
There are many different types of people that can benefit from dermal fillers. Anyone experiencing premature aging may find dermal fillers to be the most efficient and cost effective solution. Also, individuals seeking to plump their lips or fill hollow contours on their face can benefit from this type of procedure. If you are struggling with serious signs of aging, dermal fillers may also be right for you, but will not produce as noticeable or long lasting results as more invasive treatments.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers can vary, but the most common types include hyaluronic acid and collagen. Everyone has different skin types and as a result, will experience better results with certain fillers. Our trained medical staff can help determine the best option for you, so make sure to come in for your consultation.
Both collagen and hyaluronic acid have few side effects that are generally mild in nature, such as inflammation and bruising. Other types of injectable fillers include synthetic options, such as silicone. These varieties typically offer longer lasting results. However, they also have more side effects that can range in severity.
What to Expect
Since injectable fillers offer temporary results, many people aren’t sure what to expect following their first procedure. Most patients can expect their results to last for a minimum of four months and a maximum of one year, but this will vary depending on certain factors, such as your facial muscle strength and lifestyle.
How Often to Receive Treatment
Dermal fillers must be performed on an ongoing basis to maintain results. Most professionals agree that fillers should be performed as soon as volume has faded in the affected areas. However, our staff will be able to determine the best time frame for you.
If you are interested in achieving a healthy, youthful complexion, dermal fillers may be the right option for you. They are a fast and effective way to temporarily slow down the aging process
