Dermal fillers can be a great option if you’re looking to refresh your appearance without surgery. They are a non-invasive way to plump up and fill in lines and wrinkles, enhance lips and cheeks, and restore volume to areas of the face that have lost fullness due to aging. Fillers can also be used to improve the appearance of acne scars and other facial imperfections. They are a safe and popular treatment that has been used for many years to help patients achieve a more youthful, refreshed look.
Dermal fillers are an excellent option for:
- Adding volume to the cheeks and midface area
- Filling in wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, nose, and forehead
- Smoothing out deep creases and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- Enhancing the lips by adding volume and definition
- Enhancing the chin projection
- Improving the appearance of scars and other skin imperfections
- Restoring a more youthful and vibrant appearance to the face
