Most Popular Procedures
Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable that is used to add volume to the face and improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. They are made of various materials, including hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid, among others.
The dermal filler is injected beneath the skin in the treatment area using a fine needle or cannula. The filler adds volume to the skin and fills in wrinkles and fine lines, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Multiple Treatment Options
Dermal fillers can be used to treat a variety of areas on the face, including the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and under-eye hollows, among others. The results of dermal filler treatment are typically seen immediately and can last anywhere from six months to two years or more, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s body chemistry.
Dermal filler treatment is generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort or downtime. Some mild swelling, bruising, or redness may occur at the injection site, but this typically resolves within a few days.
While dermal fillers are generally considered safe, there are some risks and potential side effects associated with the procedure, including infection, allergic reaction, and injection site reactions. It’s important to discuss any concerns or questions with a qualified and experienced cosmetic professional before undergoing the procedure.
