A faster and less expensive alternative to a surgical facelift, dermal fillers have a similar effect without the recovery time. The problem area is mapped out, and then a natural or synthetic material is injected into the area. This takes only a few minutes and involves minimal discomfort. The result is a fuller, more youthful face.
Soft tissues that ring the mouth are as important as beautifully restored teeth for an attractive and confident smile. Dermal filler agents, such as Restylane, treat fat and collagen volume loss due to the aging process that causes static lines to develop. As we age, our body’s production of hyaluronic acid, the body’s natural filler, decreases, which causes facial lines to appear. The skin-plumping effect of dermal fillers can be seen almost instantly.
