Aging and Skincare

As we age, our skin changes. Over time the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. Thankfully dermal fillers gives you the opportunity to regain your youthful look.

Dermal Fillers – an Overview

Dermal fillers are a smooth consistency gel made of Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found throughout the body in all living organisms. It gives volume to the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their shape.

In the skin, Hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers – replenishing the natural support layers lost with aging – while delivering essential nutrients and hydration Over time, Hyaluronic acid is gradually reabsorbed in the body.

With dermal fillers the injection process takes about 15 minutes and results are immediate.Dermal fillers are injected under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel – so everyone will notice, but no one will know.

And because dermal fillers are a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. So you can come into the office for treatment and be right back to your busy schedule.

Smile Lines

Smile lines run vertically from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. This is a popular treatment area that many women seek help with. After just one treatment most patients see a real difference, with noticeable softening of the smile lines.

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines are the vertical facial wrinkles and folds that form below the corners of the mouth. These lines can sometimes give the appearance of sagging and/or a downturned expression. This gives a sad or angry look to your face.

After just one treatment you will be able to see a real difference, with softening of the marionette lines and lines around the lips. The sagging, downturned expression can be reduced or eliminated.

Vertical Lip Lines

Facial wrinkles above and around the lips can begin to appear over time due to ordinary lip muscle movement. However, environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress can also contribute to how the area around our lips ages and the formation of vertical lip lines.

Facial fillers can soften those with typically just one treatment.
