Restoring Lost Facial Volume
Dermal filler therapy restores the lost volume in your facial soft tissues. Younger people who have a “baby face” generally have smooth skin and full cheeks. However, as you age, the volume is lost as the collagen and fat pads dissipate resulting in deeper folds and wrinkles. Dermal fillers correct these deficiencies and have become widely accepted by patients worldwide because of their immediate effects, reasonable cost, and ease of delivery. Dermal fillers are gently placed in these areas through an extra-oral injection right underneath these folds and creases to plump them up.

Dermal filler materials are safe and can be used on various parts of your face– underneath the skin in the labionasal fold, marionette lines, and oral commissures which add volume to these facial areas and smooth out the facial wrinkles.
Lip augmentation is quite popular and can be used to enhance your new smile. As we age, our lips get thinner and the corners of lips begin to turn down. An appropriate amount of dermal filler, properly placed in the lips, aesthetically invigorates your smile.
There are temporary and permanent dermal fillers choices. Depending on the dermal filler used, the effects can last anywhere from 6-12 months. The choice of dermal filler is very important depending on the areas you are correcting- either volumising or defining.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are by far the most popular today. Being a naturally occurring substance in the body, it is lost as we age. Hyaluronic acid adds volume to the facial structures and can create a very natural appearance. Hyaluronic acid fillers are more fluid and may last anywhere from 6-12 months.
