Dermal Fillers, Assisting in Wrinkle Reduction
As we age, many of us will find that we are losing that soft, supple shape to our facial features. This is due to the loss of collagen and fat in our skin, which leads to unwanted wrinkles and folds.
Dermal Fillers are injectable products, many consisting of hyaluronic acid, a non-animal based substance that occurs naturally in the human body. They provide volume and fullness to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds by binding with the water in your skin. Dermal Fillers can also be used to enhance and add fullness to your lips, fill scars caused by acne or other conditions, and when used in the deeper skin layers, can even restructure certain aspects of the facial anatomy.*
*Please note that results may vary from patient-to-patient and cannot be guaranteed.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work
Dermal fillers are injected with a tiny needle directly into the target area. Over time, fillers are naturally reabsorbed by the body, making them a safe treatment for younger looking skin. Fortunately, there is little to no downtime with this procedure and the results are typically immediate. As always, all of your injections will be done by one of our highly skilled and knowledgeable physicians or nurses.
All of our dermal filler products have excellent safety profiles and are FDA approved. Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 months up to 2 years in duration, with the exception of Bellafill® which is FDA approved for up to 5 years.
At Paradise Medspa, we offer several dermal filler options. Each one has its own advantages for helping you achieve younger looking skin.
