What are cosmetic fillers?
Dermal cosmetic fillers are a non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation. Cosmetic fillers can soften lines and restore volume and fullness to the face. This technique is also known as soft tissue augmentation. Soft tissue augmentation can be used to plump lips, enhance facial contours, such as your cheeks or jawline, and soften wrinkles helping you look as good as you feel.
In the hands of skilled cosmetic dermatologists, fillers can be used to restore and enhance natural beauty with subtlety and immediate results. Through a deep understanding of facial anatomy and aging, we can address the underlying causes of facial aging and wrinkles, giving you a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Today’s fillers are safer, longer lasting, and provide more predictable results than older generations of fillers.
During your consultation, our expert cosmetic dermatologists will listen to you, perform a thorough evaluation, and provide you an individualized treatment plan to address your specific needs and concerns.
What is the Best Lip Filler?
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (Juvederm or Restylane products)
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are the most popular type of fillers used today. HA is a natural substance found in your skin. HA fillers can provide a soft fill which is perfect for your lips. These are nonpermanent fillers which typically last six to twelve months when used for lip enhancement. This type of filler can also be used under the eyes for dark circles (nasojugal groove) and around the mouth to provide a more refreshed natural look.
Common HA products include Juvederm® and Restylane®.
Are cosmetic injectable fillers safe?
All procedures carry some risk. Complications from filler procedures are uncommon when performed by board-certified cosmetic dermatologists.
Possible risks and considerations regarding injectable fillers include:
- Mild bleeding, bruising, and swelling
- Under or over correction of wrinkles
- Skin nodules
- Skin necrosis (rare with proper technique and expert injectors)
