Are you a Candidate for injectables or dermal fillers?

As you age, your skin loses its volume and resilience – a process that causes wrinkles and folds to begin developing on your neck and face. Fortunately, your youthful appearance can be restored with facial filler injections!

Safe and relatively painless, dermal injections are an outstanding nonsurgical way to keep your skin looking fresh and plump. In addition, facial fillers can help prevent additional signs of aging by preempting lines and wrinkles from deepening and becoming more permanent.

Many people who request dermal fillers are 35 or older. But you can have dermal injections at any age to correct pitting, scarring, and other facial depressions from injuries, acne, and other conditions.

Many people don’t realize how many areas of the face can be corrected with injectables and dermal fillers; here are a few:

  • Wrinkles
  • Folds from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Thinning lips and a receding lip border
  • Cheek and other facial depressions
  • Acne scars
  • Hollows under your eyes (or tear troughs)
  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Loose skin at the lower jawline
  • Drooping earlobes

Your dermal injections will be administered with a very fine needle that causes little or no discomfort and treatment typically takes only 15 to 30 minutes.

What can you expect with injectables and dermal fillers?

  • Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane, are smooth gels that immediately soften your lines and wrinkles.
  • Sculptra® is a biodegradable substance that gradually increases the thickness of the skin, helping fill lines and wrinkles and increase the overall volume of the face.
  • Radiesse™ is a calcium-based substance that stimulates collagen production to reduce the appearance of facial lines, folds, creases, and wrinkles.

Results from dermal fillers are immediate. In some cases, the results of facial fillers improve over time and with continued treatments.  The effects typically last at least 6 months; but some patients find they need less of the fillers and that they experience longer-lasting results even after just a few treatments.
