ENHANCE THE FRAMING OF YOUR SMILE WITH A YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE!
Dermal fillers have become an increasingly popular method for reversing the effects associated with aging. Unlike surgical facelifts, which aim to restore the dermis to its original youthful state, dermal fillers provide a more natural appearance. They can effectively reduce or eliminate wrinkles, elevate scar depressions, augment lips, and replenish lost soft-tissue volume.
As our skin undergoes the aging process, the essential components of the dermis—collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid—gradually diminish. Collagen serves as the primary support protein, elastin contributes to skin firmness and wrinkle resistance, and hyaluronic acid aids in retaining water, providing volume, and shaping the skin.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances placed just beneath the skin’s surface to address lines, wrinkles, and scars. Unlike facelifts that involve stretching the skin, fillers add volume for a more naturally youthful appearance. They can enhance lip fullness and mitigate the downward slant of the corners of the lips. Common treatment areas include smile lines around the nose and mouth, fine lines above the mouth, frown lines between the eyes, and acne scars.
WHY CONSULT A DENTIST FOR DERMAL FILLERS?
Dentists undergo extensive clinical training in administering injectable facial rejuvenation treatments, allowing them to address all facial and aesthetic concerns, including those related to your smile and teeth.
ARE DERMAL FILLERS SAFE?
FDA-approved dermal fillers are minimally invasive and generally considered safe. While side effects are rare, it’s crucial to discuss any allergies or potential interactions with your doctor.
HOW LONG DO DERMAL FILLERS LAST?
The effects of dermal fillers typically endure for six to 12 months, after which a repeat procedure is necessary. These quick procedures usually take between five to 15 minutes.
