Dermal filler is a broad term of compound gels that are used in the treatment of the aging face. The goal of fillers is to add volume to lost collagen and facial fat pads during the aging process. Dermal fillers can replenish youthful volume with instant results.
Fat, Bone, and Facial Volume Loss
The natural process of aging causes a decrease in facial volume. As a result, the skin sags, folds, and wrinkles. To reverse the aging, we need to add the volume back. One of the most common treatments is dermal or subdermal filler. Placement of the filler in the cheek area will lift the skin up, placement of the filler in the nasolabial folds will smooth out the "marionette" smile lines resulting in aging reversal and younger appearance. The hyaluronic acids dermal fillers last from 6-8 months, the calcium hydroxide dermal fillers last around 2 years. We utilize different fillers for different indications to ensure the best possible results for our clients..
