Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that help diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the aging face.

As we age our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. Collagen in the skin also breaks down. These processes make wrinkles like smile lines and crow’s feet more apparent. Other factors like heredity, lifestyle and sun exposure affect the skin as well.

Dermal fillers can be used to restore this volume, improve mild to moderate facial wrinkles and help reverse the signs of aging.

Dermal fillers differ in chemical make-up, longevity and degrees of softness. The wide variety of available fillers allow for correction in an expanding number of locations in the body. Traditionally, fillers have been used in the lips and nasolabial folds. Now they can also be used for adding volume in many other areas. For example, they can be used for cheek augmentation, to enhance shallow facial contours, to soften facial creases and wrinkles, to correct under-eye hollowness, to improve the appearance of recessed scars and to reverse aging of the hands.

Dermal fillers are injected in the office. The procedure takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated. Many fillers are now formulated with a local anesthetic that allows the procedure to be performed with greater patient comfort. Mild redness and stinging may occurred during the procedure.  Bruising and swelling may occur after the procedure but makeup can be worn and routine skin regimens followed. The duration of results can range from 6 months to 5 years depending on the patient, the product used and the area treated.

A consultation with a provider at Ageless Wellness Center can help determine which areas would respond well to treatment with dermal filler and which product or products would best meet your needs.

At Ageless Wellness Center we offer a variety of dermal fillers to accommodate a variety of applications.  Juvéderm, Restylane, Radiesse and Bellafill are most commonly used at Ageless Wellness Center.
