Freshen up your Face with Dermal Fillers

September 28, 2020

As we age, gravity often has a negative influence on our appearance, especially our facial skin. The face naturally loses subcutaneous fat, which results in smile lines and crow's feet becoming more apparent. At the office of Dermatology for the Family, our highly skilled professionals can erase years off your look with the use of dermal fillers, designed to help lessen facial lines and restore volume and fullness for a more youthful look. 

Dermal filling is a noninvasive technique performed in our office. We use injections to improve or restore a variety of facial characteristics such as: 

  • Plump thin lips
  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars
  • Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
  • Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids

Dermal fillers differ in chemical makeup and longevity, and they have varying degrees of suppleness. Softer fillers are used in the lips, for example, while sturdier fillers might be desired to enhance cheekbones. You are a good candidate for the procedure if you are physically healthy, you don’t smoke and have realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance.

During your first visit to Dermatology for the Family, we will evaluate your general health status and ask about any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors. From there we will recommend the best type and volume of filler needed for your particular areas of concern. 

It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it's excitement for your anticipated new look or some pre-treatment stress. Don't be shy about discussing these feelings with us. We will listen to what you have to say and note what is most important to you before beginning the process. At Dermatology for the Family, our goal is to help you achieve precisely the look you want.
