Dermal fillers restore volume and fullness to the skin and are used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. These can also be injected in the lips and areas around the mouth to make your lips fuller, and plumper. Dermal fillers are made to mimick the substance Hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and is used by the body to give volume to the lips. Collagen was once the most common dermal filler but modern treatments use much safer and completely bio-compatible substances which also allow for longer lasting results. We only use fillers made from non-animal based product.
We use the popular modern dermal fillers Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®. During a simple procedure involving minimal discomfort, a dermal filler is injected directly into the skin or lips in tiny amounts by a fine needle. The procedure involves no patient down-time, is simple and convenient, and results can be seen immediately. Studies have shown that the average modern treatment results last six to twelve months and may last even longer, twice as long as older collagen treatments.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable gel that closely resembles the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in human bodies. They can be used to reduce wrinkles and folds as well as plump and enhance lip shape.
What kind of dermal fillers does the Vein and Laser Clinic offer?
We use both Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® brand dermal fillers.
What can dermal fillers be used to treat?
Our Restylane® brand dermal fillers can be used to treat both the upper and lower lips, the crease next to the lips, along the lipstick line (the area between the nose and upper lip), laugh lines, and the marionette lines (the area that extends from the corner of the mouth to the jawline). Our JUVÉDERM® brand dermal fillers can also be used to treat the upper and lower lips, as well as smile lines, marionette lines and vertical lines. The physicians at the Vein and Laser Clinic will determine the best fitting brand of dermal filler based on the specifics of your needs.
How long will I have wait to see results?
The results of dermal filler procedures are seen immediately.
How long do the results last?
The average treatment results last from 6 months to 12 month – some patients do have even longer lasting results. Treatment can be re-administered as needed.
Is the procedure painful?
Our goal at the Vein and Laser Clinic is to make the treatment as painless as possible for our patients. Our dermal fillers are injected with a very thin needle, and we have topical numbing agents and anesthetics available that can make the treatment nearly painless.
How long does the procedure take?
The treatment is quick, usually taking 30 minutes or less.
What happens after my procedure?
Our patients usually report they can return to their daily activities directly after the procedure. We strongly recommend not pressing on, rubbing or applying pressure to the area for at least 6 hours following the treatment.
