Dermal fillers allow your dermatologist to fill creases and enhance facial contours quickly, with lasting results. At AboutSkin, a research center with diverse influences, we carefully assess each patient’s needs, as not all dermal fillers are created equal. In fact, we may use a combination of fillers on a single patient in order to produce his or her most naturally refreshing results that last several months.
Just as every patient is different, most dermal fillers contain specific components for optimal effect. In some instances, a dermal filler will act to provide a boost of hyaluronic acid, a naturally produced substance that decreases as the body ages. Hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule, is a substance that binds to water and serves as the body’s natural lubricant, aiding joints as well as skin. When the body produces less of it, skin develops lines and wrinkles that may make one appear older than he or she is. To feel your best, you want to look your best. By giving skin a boost of hyaluronic acid, your skilled cosmetic dermatologist at AboutSkin Dermatology can help you refresh your appearance through the elimination of lines and the subsequent enhancement of facial contours.
Different than neuromodulators like Botox, dermal fillers work by plumping lines on the face. Typically, dermal fillers are used on what are called the marionette lines, which run from the nose to the outer area of the mouth. Fillers may also be used to plump lips to a naturally full state.
Our goal is to provide our patients with the most up-to-date treatments as they become available. Dr. Cohen and colleagues become exceptionally familiar with all fillers through clinical trials before accepting them as standard treatment. Research of products used in Europe and Canada is a part of our regular practice so as to keep an eye on what is coming to the States.
