Dermal or facial fillers are injected into the area around the nose and mouth to smooth wrinkles, lines, and folds. These dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, can restore the natural volume and contours of your face and give you a more youthful appearance. Over time, the facial skin stretches a bit, resulting in a loss of facial volume. The natural loss of subcutaneous fat in the face, as well as sun exposure, lifestyle factors, and heredity, can affect the appearance of the facial skin. Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore fullness in the face. Specifically, our Plastic Surgeon may recommend dermal fillers if you are interested in:
Plumping thin lips
Improving the appearance of recessed scars
Enhancing shallow facial contours
Softening facial wrinkles and creases
Many dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance that helps to restore the structure and contours of your skin. The dermal fillers also include an anesthetic to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible. In most cases, dermal filler results can last up to one year after just one treatment.
