Today, dermal fillers have become one of the most sought after cosmetic treatments. At All Dental Group we get a lot of inquiries about our dermal filler treatments and many of our patients come to us not only to improve their smile but also to enhance their face. Dermal fillers can be used to address many issues concerning facial aging and it can help by:
- Adding volume to the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of deep creases in the nose and mouth.
- Making thin lips look plumper and getting rid of the lines at the tips.
- Augmenting the cheeks to make the face look more youthful.
How It Works
Dermal fillers are made of either natural or synthetic substance and it is injected directly into the skin. It plumps the area to get rid of depressions, folds and wrinkles. The effects can last from 6 months to two years depending on the type of filler used. Most permanent fillers can have effects that will last for as long as 5 years and some people have even reported getting much longer lasting results.
You might be wondering if dermal fillers are the same as Botox. They’re not. While both procedures are administered through injections, Botox is often injected on the muscles in the forehead as well as near the eyes to get rid of crow’s feet. It works by stopping the contracting motion of the muscles to smooth out the wrinkles on your skin. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, work by plumping the skin and are usually applied on hollow areas of the face such as in the deep creases of the nose and lips.
Many of our patients who come to our office in Miami Lakes, FL choose to get both dermal fillers and Botox because these treatments complement each other, resulting in a much younger looking face.
