Many of the visible signs of aging come down to just one thing: loss of volume! Facial and other skin tissues thin over time, showing lines and creating hollow spots. And when our face changes and ages, sometimes we feel a loss of our sense of self.
The good news? Dermal fillers are a safe, effective, and lasting way to bring back your vibrancy and confidence by restoring volume and smoothness, saving the time, money, and health risks associated with surgery.
What are dermal fillers?
We use the Juvéderm® line of dermal fillers, made of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, a substance already found in your skin, so they’re safe for the body to absorb. Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin hydrated, but breaks down with age, which is where Juvéderm comes in. The fillers are soft and gel-like, with results that last from six months to two years, depending on the area and the amount used.
How do they work?
Dermal fillers are mainly used for those facial areas that lose to gravity: the ‘parentheses’ lines that frame the mouth and nostrils, smile lines, the downturn lines of the mouth, the undereye areas, and the apples of the cheeks.
Dermal fillers do more than just fill lines and wrinkles. The volume and hydration restores volume to sunken areas, smoothes out lip lines and chin creases, and improve facial symmetry. Dermal fillers are also used for making the lips plumper and more full—which we make sure to do carefully to give you a natural-looking pout.
Our highly trained, expert providers carefully study your face and will find the areas needing the most volume; they measure how much filler to use based on the depth of the wrinkle or line. Through gentle, tiny injections, they insert the fillers underneath the skin folds and creases. (The Juvederm line of dermal fillers all contain amounts of lidocaine to minimize discomfort during treatment.)
Once injected, you’re done! There’s no downtime needed, and results are quickly noticeable—making it a perfect lunchtime appointment in your busy schedule.
What’s the best way to start?
