Dermal Fillers

enhance your facial contours

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found within the body. It may be produced by bacteria and purified for use as injectable soft tissue filler in order to correct the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers closely resemble the naturally occurring material in the body. They have the effect of plumping up the skin, making it appear fuller and smoother. The product is approved by the Food and Drug Administration of the U.S.A (FDA) for the cosmetic treatment of facial lines and wrinkles.

This treatment is commonly used for naso-labial lines, cheeks, lips, marionette lines, tear trough, jawline, and other areas and can last for about 9 to 12 months or even more based on your lifestyle. You can resume your normal daily routine immediately after these treatments.

These unique products that we use are made of a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results and provide a smooth, natural look and feel.

Dermal fillers all work to improve the appearance of aged skin in the following ways:

  • Filling out thin or wrinkled lips
  • Filling in wrinkles, fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Contouring the jawline and other areas of the face
  • Treating fat loss
  • Improving other imperfections like scars
  • Improving facial symmetry
  • Younger looking skin
  • Plumping up cheeks
As we age the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases which leads to the appearance of lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Hyaluronic acid inside the dermal fillers adds hydration and volume of the skin also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and then promotes the connective tissue that plumps the skin.
