Many patients want a younger, more rejuvenated face – without the surgery. Fortunately, dermal fillers are a great way to look years younger after just one treatment.
Dermal fillers can treat:
- Thin lips
- Shallow facial contours
- Hollow cheeks
- Wrinkle and frown lines
- Deep laugh lines
Dermal fillers typically fall in one of two categories (though there are others): those made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that adds collagen and volume to the treatment area, and those made with a toxin that blocks muscle activity and relaxes the muscles. A consultation with a plastic surgeon can help you decide which type is right for you. Dr. Correa will recommend the best product for your procedure during your pre-treatment consultation.
Benefits of facial fillers include:
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Decrease the depth of laugh lines and frown lines
- Plump out cheek areas that have begun to sag
- Minimize the appearance of acne and other scars
The main benefit of fillers is that results are instant and there is virtually no downtime. The procedure is very fast, taking less than an hour with very minimal discomfort. You can have a rejuvenating treatment over your lunch hour and return to work. Fillers have long-lasting results, with the longest lasting up to 18 months.
However, if you are experiencing severe facial sagging or deep wrinkles, surgery may be your best option. Dermal fillers cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay surgery. Dermal fillers are temporary treatments for facial aging and ongoing treatments will be needed for long-term results.
