Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal Fillers?

The type of dermal fillers we use are hyaluronic acid based. The medication is versatile and will dissipate over time. Hyaluronic acid exists naturally in all living organisms and our skin houses the majority of hyaluronic acid in the body. Dermal fillers are carbohydrate molecules and the primary function is to provide volume, hydration, and pliability.

What areas can Dermal Fillers treat?

Dermal fillers are primarily used to treat static wrinkles. Static wrinkles are present when the face is at rest and might not have a muscular origin.

They are commonly used to treat:

  • Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Downturned oral commissures (corners of the mouth)
  • Marionette lines
  • Lip Enhancement

Fillers may or may not be the right treatment for you. The best candidates for treatment with Fillers are:

  • Over the age of 18
  • Not pregnant or lactating
  • Concerned with softening static wrinkles and volumizing/hydrating the skin
  • Enhance lips
  • Looking for a non-surgical skin treatment
  • Aware that Filler results are temporary
  • In good physical and psychological health
  • Willing to discuss their concerns and desires with their dentist before treatment
