Dermal Fillers for a More Youthful Look

If you’re looking to have fuller lips, plump, younger-looking, and supple skin, reduce the lines at the corners of your mouth, or correct unsightly nasolabial folds, dermal filler injections are your best bet.

The process involves injecting a clear, gel-like biodegradable, non-animal filler that contains Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body. This acid, which is very gentle to the skin, facilitates hydration, which imparts the skin with a youthful appearance.

Getting dermal filler injections at our clinic is convenient and does not involve a lengthy, uncomfortable downtime. That’s because our fillers contain anesthetics, which minimizes the pain and discomfort usually associated with this procedure.

With proper maintenance, results may last between six months to a year.

How Dermal Fillers Can Work For you

The skin is the largest organ of the body, made up of approximately 70% water. Its main function is to protect the body against microorganisms and fluid loss. It also regulates body temperature. It has three layers, all of which play important roles in maintaining overall health, well-being, and beauty:

The hypodermis, which is the deepest layer, is made up of fatty tissue that cushions and supports the two layers of the skin on top of it.

The dermis is the middle layer, which contains collagen and elastin. These both contribute to the skin’s shape and elasticity. Both are constantly renewed in young, healthy skin. As you get older, your deposit of collagen and elastin deplete, which cause the skin to sag and wrinkle.

This is also the layer where the blood capillaries and hair follicles, as well as the sweat and oil glands are found. Oil glands become less active with age, which is why skin becomes drier and more prone to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.

The epidermis, the topmost layer, is where essential cell renewal takes place. Cells in younger skin get replaced every 15-30 days, and take twice as long in older skin.

Dermal fillers reverse the effects of aging, keeping skin hydrated, supple, and rejuvenated. It blurs fine lines and blemishes, and keeps skin smooth to the touch.
