As we age, there is a gradual loss of volume in the face as the fat pads shrink. The skin appears thinner, it seems to sag, and lines and hollows appear. “Dermal fillers” is a term that includes products which restore the areas of lost volume in order to regain a more youthful fullness. Many people are wary of treatment with fillers, as we see so many “overdone” faces. My goal is to restore what you’ve lost in a very natural way, so that you always look like you, never overdone.
The treatment takes from 20-30 minutes, plus additional time for application of a numbing cream. There may be some minor discomfort but treatment is not painful. Risks of treatment include swelling and bruising, which may be covered with makeup but can take several days to go away. Results last anywhere from months to years, depending on the products used and the area treated.
Fillers are helpful to:
- Restore facial fullness
- Soften facial hollows and creases
- Improve undereye hollows
- Plump thin lips
- Soften prominent tendons and veins on the backs of hands
- Non-surgical “liquid facelift”
