No matter what we do, our skin continues to age and as we age, our skin loses its youthful fullness. Filler injections offer the key advantage of being injected as needed to replace lost fullness.
With several fillers now available, dermatologists can diminish signs of aging that appear on the face, lips, and hands with natural-looking results. Injected properly, you will look refreshed. Friends, family, and co-workers, however, are not likely to know what you have done. The results can look THAT natural.
DERMAL FILLERS are gel-like substances injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours.* Each product is designed to treat different signs of aging or other cosmetic issues; your dermatology provider will help you select the appropriate product.
Fillers can effectively:
- Restore fullness to cheeks, hollow areas under the eyes, and deep creases.
- Diminish scars.
- Erase fine lines.
- Plump lips.
- Lift the brow or a down-turned mouth.
- Rejuvenate hands.
- Non-surgically correct nose bridge
With most fillers you can return to everyday activities immediately after injection and see immediate results that many types of fillers deliver.
Most filler treatments only require one office visit to achieve your desired results. But as they are temporary, you may require repeat treatments to maintain the results.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR TREATMENT
Before getting the injections, you may need ice, an anesthetic applied to the skin, or a nerve block (an injection). This varies with the filler and area to be treated. Hands generally do not need anesthesia; lips often require a nerve block.
Your dermatologist will inject the filler into the area, often giving you several injections to produce the best results.
