Dermal fillers are used to temporarily soften facial creases and wrinkles, enhance shallow contours, plump lips and help give your face a more youthful appearance. As we age, our bodies see a reduction in the amount of hyaluronic acid (HA), causing our skin to lose volume and structure, resulting in those unwanted lines and wrinkles. Restylayne®, Restylayne Silk®, Restylayne Lyft®, and Juvederm® XC are dermal fillers that help to temporarily replace the HA.
They provide immediate results with minimal recovery. They are performed in the office and can take up to 30 minutes. Dermal fillers are not permanent and need to be repeated if you would like to maintain the appearance. They can last from six months to a year depending on the type of correction you desire. You may experience mild irritation, swelling, redness, bruising or tenderness at the injection site after your treatment. These symptoms resolve in a few hours. Most usually resolve within 24-48 hours. Dermal fillers can be used in combination with other procedures like Botox®, Dysport®, chemical peels, Ultherapy and many surgical procedures.
