Dermal fillers are a widely used cosmetic treatment and are a versatile way to accentuate the structure of the face, shape the nose, plump up the lips, chisel the cheeks, or smooth the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and facial lines. Fillers are also an effective way to replenish loss of volume in the face to lift and plump your face structure. As we age, we naturally lose shape and volume in our faces, and this can make us look older than we are. Filler injections can provide fast restoration to the face without the downtime of an invasive surgical procedure.

Injectable fillers are specially designed for different areas of the face. Each filler has a unique bonding and concentration level of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally found in the body. The most fitting and appropriate filler is chosen based off your aesthetic goals, and then meticulously applied into the treatment areas.
During treatment, a numbing solution or cream is applied, and lidocaine is mixed with the facial filler to maximize patient comfort. It is then precisely injected underneath the facial skin to the desired treatment area, to create emphasized shape and volume. The filler then bonds to the facial tissue, which keeps it in the correct place.
A particular feature about dermal fillers is that they are temporary and will naturally dissolve within the body over time. They can be easily reversed using a solution that dissolves hyaluronic acid fillers so if you aren't comfortable with the results or are looking for a preview for a more permanent procedure, dermal fillers might be the right choice for you.
