Dermal fillers are a popular choice for restoring volume and improving skin lines, wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers can be used in many different areas on the face.
Sadly, as we age the collagen and elastin in our skin begins to deteriorate. Our stores of hyaluronic acid reduces.
During the natural aging process the Malar Fat pad can begin to descend , this can lead to a devision line below the orbital rim and it can make the cheek area appear hollow. The Nasal labial folds become more prominent and possible ‘jowling’ can occur.
Dermal fillers can also be used to soften static lines on the face, for example around the crows feet, tear troughs, frown lines and lip lines.
By carefully injecting dermal filler above and below the ‘bump’ on the nose, we can very easily make the most ‘hooked’ of noses, look completely straight. Additionally, by applying filler around the tip of the nose, we can make it look thinner and more refined, and can further lift the tip of the nose by injecting Botox into the depressor nasalis, the muscle which continuously pulls the nose down.
Most dermal fillers used today contain hyalouronic acid and lidocaine (for comfort during the procedure). The dermal fillers we use in treatments are approved by the FDA and have an excellent safety record.
Most Dermal fillers last from six to 18 months dependent on the product used and the area of treatment.
