As we age, our skin loses volume and elasticity, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and a sunken appearance. Dermal fillers can help restore that lost volume, smoothing out wrinkles and restoring a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
mySKIN offers a wide range of cosmetic dermal fillers to suit your unique needs and preferences. Our experienced team of licensed medical professionals is committed to helping you achieve your desired results safely and effectively.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that add volume and fullness to the skin, helping to smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, and hollow areas. They can also be used to enhance facial features such as the lips, cheeks, and jawline.
The most commonly used dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps keep the skin hydrated and plump. Hyaluronic acid fillers are safe, effective, and have a low risk of side effects.
Other types of fillers include those made from calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral found in bones, and poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material that stimulates collagen production.
What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
Dermal fillers can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nose, and eyes
- Sunken cheeks and temples
- Nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Marionette lines (the lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin)
- Thin or uneven lips
- Jowls and sagging skin around the jawline
- Scars and indentations
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
The first step in your dermal filler treatment is a consultation with one of our licensed medical professionals. During this consultation, we will assess your skin, discuss your concerns, and recommend the best treatment plan for your individual needs.
If you decide to proceed with treatment, we will clean and prepare the treatment area, then use a very fine needle to inject the filler into the skin. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure; the entire process usually takes less than an hour.
After treatment, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness around the injection site. This is normal and usually subsides within a few days. You should avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and exposure to heat or cold for at least 24 hours after treatment.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The duration of your results will depend on the type of filler used and the area treated. Hyaluronic acid fillers typically last 6-12 months, while calcium hydroxylapatite fillers can last up to 18 months. Poly-L-lactic acid fillers are longer-lasting, with results that can last up to 2 years.
To maintain your results, we recommend scheduling follow-up treatments as needed. Our team will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to help you achieve and maintain your desired results over time.
