Dermal Fillers are a powerful and popular facial rejuvenation treatment that is administered by injection, just like with Botox. It takes just minutes to administer with down time required for recovery. Unlike Botox, however, instead of targeting the muscle under the skin creating the repetitive facial movements that are thereby causing lines, creases and wrinkles, Dermal Fillers target areas of the face that have lost volume. Loss of volume creates creases, lines and wrinkles and through Dermal Fillers the area of loss is filled out to create a smooth, more youthful appearance.
There are a couple of different types of Dermal fillers available. We offer Restylane and Juvederm. Restylane is a hyaluronic aid gel similar to the hyaluronic acid our bodies natural produce. The Restylane results are long lasting, though they are not permanent. Juvederm is made with gel consistency of hyaluronic acid and is great for smoothing out wrinkles and fold around the mouth and nose.
