What are dermal fillers?

Dermal Fillers restore lost volume and reduce the appearance of the signs of aging. Loss of volume leads to a sunken or sagging appearance of the face, fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and thin lips.
 
Fillers can be used to rejuvenate facial contours and restore volume to the cheeks, hollows under the eyes, deep fold, reduce the appearance of scars, eliminate fine lines, and add fullness the lips.

Common treatment areas

  • Lips
  • Under the eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Temples
  • Jawline
 

Are dermal fillers safe and what should I expect?

We use hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Hyaluronic acid is made naturally throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the joints, eyes, and skin.
 
In the skin, hyaluronic acid attracts water, and allows the skin to become more hydrated. If you have a history of severe allergic reactions to lidocaine or hyaluronic acid (HA), you cannot use this product.
 
Discomfort is minimal and we offer numbing cream as needed. Results are immediate and can last anywhere between 6-24 months in the cheeks and 6 months in the lips. Dermal fillers are a great option for both women and men! They can be used as a part of a complete facial rejuvenation along with other anti-aging treatments such as Botox, microneedling, facials, peels, Latisse®, and quality at home skincare products.
