Dermal Fillers

How It Works

Did you know that many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss? As facial tissues thin out, lines become etched around the nose, mouth, and cheeks creating a hollow appearance. Dermal fillers can replace volume loss and fill in hollow areas to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance.

Our experienced staff are able to accomplish effective results. Check out our before and afters!

Number of Treatments Needed

After one treatment you will see visible results, but it may take up to 3 weeks for the dermal filler to fully integrate into the tissue. Dermal Fillers typically last up to 1 year.

Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

We use FDA approved Hyaluronic Acid volumizing fillers that are soft and gel like. Hyaluronic acid and collagen are necessary for your skin to have fullness.

 

A decrease in the production of Hyaluronic Acid usually starts to appear in your 30’s as you develop creases and wrinkles. When we inject fillers we are simply restoring back what your body has already lost. In essence, we are adding volume where it used to be.
