Dermal Fillers

As we age, we begin to form lines and wrinkles on our face, as a result of the natural aging process and other environmental factors. The older we get, the more prominent these lines look, generally from age related bone loss. These wrinkles typically result when the collagen that shapes and supports the skin starts breaking down.

Injectable dermal fillers are one of the most effective treatments for reducing the appearance of unwanted folds and lines, and they can also be used to improve the appearance of scars. With dermal fillers, we can smooth wrinkles and restore volume that has decreased over time. Our board-certified dermatologists will work with you to achieve a youthful and natural appearance.

A dermal filler treatment involves using a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) to replace the volume loss in the area. The procedure generally takes less than an hour and has a high success rate with virtually no downtime. The results typically last for about 6-12 months and sometimes can last up to two years, depending on the patient and type of filler being used.

You’re an ideal candidate for dermal filler treatment if:
  • You have small vertical lines above your lips
  • Your lips and cheeks have lost volume
  • You have folds or lines around your nose or mouth
