Anti-Aging And Wrinkle Reduction With Hyaluronic Dermal Filler Injections

Cosmetic Dermal Fillers have changed the game when it comes to anti-aging treatments, and today’s modern fillers are especially effective. Unlike yesteryear’s bovine collagen, silicone, or body fat facial fillers, today’s fillers are made with non-animal-based hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. Today’s fillers are therefore less likely to cause an allergic reaction and provide a more natural-looking result. Cosmetic fillers are injected into deep crevices and wrinkles in order to plump up the skin and reduce the wrinkle. They also cause the body to increase the production of collagen in the area in order to wall off the “foreign” substance.

We are proud to offer safe and effective non-permanent hyaluronic dermal fillers that are FDA approved. The dermal fillers that we used to help define facial contours, smooth wrinkles, and soften facial lines for a more youthful look.

 How Does Hyaluronic Dermal Filler Work?

Our products come in the form of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own natural hyaluronic acid.  Hyaluronic acid dermal filler products replace lost volume to smooth away wrinkles and define facial contours providing immediate results.  It can be used to visibly reduce moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds for a more youthful appearance.

 What To Expect During My Appointment?

Our provider will complete a thorough review of your health history, discuss your treatment goals, and review potential adverse events and management strategies if such events occur.  A topical anesthetic is typically utilized to block the nerve endings to reduce pain during treatment.  Your skin will then be cleaned and sterilized with chlorhexidine 2% with 4% isopropyl alcohol.  Depending on the location and area being treated, injections may be completed using serial injections with an ultra-fine needle, and/or a cannula (a sterile plastic needle) to instill the clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. We will then review post-procedure care.

How Long Do Results Last And What Is the Recommended Frequency Of Treatment?
