Comparison of Dermal Wrinkle Fillers & Injectables
Minimally invasive and cost effective treatments such as dermal fillers are fast replacing plastic surgery for many patients seeking to slow the ravages of aging.
As the face ages, it slowly loses volume and unsightly wrinkles and lines begin to form. We use injectable fillers to gently give volume to these depressions leaving an extremely natural result.
The temporary, short-acting fillers are made of natural products such as collagen or hyaluronic acid that is quickly absorbed by the body. The new long-acting, semi-permanent fillers mostly rely on synthetic materials for that extra durability. Each product has a different "location" preference and duration. Some are best used in deep wrinkles, some in shallow lines, and some for plumping or restoring volume. We will help you choose the FDA approved wrinkle filler that will work best for your needs.

Dermal fillers can be used to revolumize areas of the face that have lost volume or to non-surgically change the shape of the face. Common areas for treatment with dermal fillers include lips, cheeks, tear troughs, chin, nose, brows, nasolabial folds, mouth corners, and wrinkles (static wrinkles). Treatment with dermal fillers involves first numbing the area to be treated, and then injecting the filler. Dermal fillers are a safe and effective method to non-surgically shape, volumize, lift and rejuvenate the face.
