Dermal fillers, also called injectables or dermal injections, are non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that improve certain skin conditions, restoring a more youthful appearance.

What Conditions Do Dermal Fillers Treat?

There are many types of dermal fillers to choose from, each designed to treat a specific concern or a specific area of the face or body. Conditions such as the following may all be treated and improved with dermal injections:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles at the corners of the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Sagging skin and sunken cheeks in the mid-face region
  • Thin, flat, brittle, undefined lips
  • Vertical lines around the lip line, sometimes called “smokers’ lines”
  • Wrinkles, creases, folds, or lines anywhere on the face

The improvements provided by dermal filler injections may last as long as two years. You may also combine several dermal injections in one treatment session to achieve a more complete makeover.

Who Can Benefit from Dermal Fillers and Injectables?

Almost any healthy adult can benefit from dermal filler injections, but you may have to suspend the use of certain medications while undergoing treatment. It is also recommended you postpone dermal injections if there is any skin irritation or infection present in the treatment site until such irritation has cleared up. During your initial consultation, our team will help you determine whether you are a good candidate for dermal injections, and which dermal fillers are most suitable for your unique skin condition.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are formulated with such natural ingredients as hyaluronic acid and collagen, which help the skin to become more hydrated, strengthening skin cells at the structural level. A topical anesthetic is used prior to treatment to prevent any potential discomfort during the procedure. Dermal fillers are injected directly into the skin using a very fine-gauge needle. In the case of younger patients treating fine lines and wrinkles on the surface of the skin, injections are delivered to the outermost layers of skin, while deeper wrinkles and creases are treated by injecting the dermal filler into the deeper skin layers.
