Dermal fillers are an aesthetic injectable designed to reduce facial wrinkles or creases, lift and contour, and/or restore volume loss. Dermal fillers may use hyaluronic acid, collagen, synthetic materials, and autologous fillers, which use substances found elsewhere in the body, such as fat or blood. Dr. Lee at Aesthetics, by Dr. Lee offers a variety of dermal fillers that he will discuss at the initial consultation.
Dermal fillers are used in several different areas of the face. One of the most popular areas for this dermal filler is the lips. Juvederm Volbella can restore lost volume in the lips, as lips may grown thinner with age. It can also fill in tiny smile lines surrounding the mouth. Juvederm Voluma XC is used for areas like the nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the edge of the nose to the corner of the mouth. It is also used in the cheeks to plump the cheek and treat that hollow-cheeked look that may develop as a person ages. Other dermal fillers are available to reverse the signs of aging. Dr. Lee is happy to discuss the best-customized treatment plan with his patients.
No. Botox and dermal fillers are both injectables, but Botox is usually injected around the forehead and eye area to stop muscle movement that forms wrinkles. Dermal fillers are used to plump, smooth, and restore the area. A patient is able to combine both Botox and dermal fillers for the most youthful appearance.
Dermal filler results are instant. The injections take just a few minutes and the volume increase will be seen as soon as the injections are complete. There may be some mild swelling after the injections, but this will usually abate within a day or two.
