What are Dermal Fillers?

FDA-approved dermal fillers are a safe option for soften wrinkles, plump lips, and maintain a youthful and natural looking appearance.

Fillers were approved in 2006 by the FDA as a safe option for softening wrinkles, plumping lips, and maintaining a youthful appearance – and since then, its popularity has skyrocketed. Fillers are simple, painless, and require little recovery time. They use hyaluronic acid, naturally found in our bodies, and absorb 1,000 times its weight in water. When this is injected into the problem areas of the face, it adds volume to the area, smoothing out wrinkles, lines, and folds.

Our office specializes in natural looking volume to enhance the lips and remove jowls, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. By improving the shape of the upper face by adding filler to the cheek bone I can enhance not only the wrinkling under the yes, but also, lift the heaviness and jowling of the lower face. Much of the lower face “aging process” that creates folds, heaviness, and jowls is caused by the loss of bone under the eyes that supported the cheeks.
