Dermal Fillers Q&A
What do dermal fillers treat?
Dermal fillers work to fill voids beneath your skin, creating volume and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Specific dermal fillers work in particular areas of the face, eliminating lines, wrinkles, and deep folds.
Some dermal fillers smooth nasolabial folds, the lines that form from the corner of your nose to the edge of your mouth, while others plump your lips or fill in lost volume on the back of your hands. Others create volume in the cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, and reduce marionette lines that develop from the corners of the mouth to the chin.
How do dermal fillers work?
When you have a dermal filler treatment at Lower Highlands Dermatology, Dr. Carretero or Maggie injects the filler in specific areas of your face. These fillers plump your skin with natural moisture-drawing chemicals, filling the space beneath your skin and smoothing its surface.
What’s more, some dermal fillers contain collagen-stimulating solutions, enhancing your body’s natural production of the protein. Collagen supports the structural tissues underneath your skin, strengthening and tightening it, reducing wrinkles and expression lines.
After a dermal filler treatment, you notice results immediately. Although every case is different, results often last up to a year.
What types of dermal fillers are available?
At Lower Highlands Dermatology, Dr. Carretero and Maggie offer various dermal fillers, including:
- RadiesseⓇ: smooths moderate to severe facial folds and fills voids on the back of your hands
- JuvedermⓇ: lifts cheeks, smooths deep lines, and adds volume to your lips
- RestylaneⓇ Refyne: smooths laugh lines around the mouth
- Restylane Defyne: works on those extra deep laugh lines and skin folds
- Belotero BalanceⓇ: focuses on lines, big and small, around your mouth and lips
Unlike other cosmetic facial procedures, the results from dermal fillers are gentle and don’t restrict the movement of your face or expressions. You still look exactly like you, just with smoother, younger-looking skin.
If expression lines and loss of volume in your cheeks and lips make you look older than you feel, help your skin take a step back in time with dermal fillers at Lower Highlands Dermatology. Call the office today to schedule your appointment or book online.
