Botox is a good treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, but it isn’t the best alternative deep-set lines. These lines are already too deep into the skin and relaxing the muscles won’t have the effect you want. We always encourage patients to consider dermal fillers for deep-set lines and wrinkles. This treatment is effective and quite popular because it gives your face a supple, plump, and youthful look.
Dermal fillers Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Radiesse® are all body-friendly tissue filler compounds. They are injected directly into the skin to fill the lines and wrinkles. The filler provides support from underneath and holds up the skin, reducing the appearance of deep lines and giving you a smoother appearance. Our doctor uses proven solutions to get the best results so you can regain your youthful looks.
Dermal fillers like Juvederm are a safe and quick procedure. The filler solution replaces the collagen lost due to the aging process and fills the crevices underneath the skin. This lifts the skin and gives it a smoother appearance. You can use the fillers on lips, chin, cheeks, and the jawline to give your face some definition.
Dermal fillers are effective because they replace lost volume and fullness. Collagen production declines with age, which leads to a loss of plumpness and definition. This combined with sun exposure, gravity, poor diet or lifestyle choices, air pollution, smoking, and other such concerns can cause deep wrinkles. Dermal fillers replace what is lost and improve the skin’s appearance.
Dermal fillers are a non-invasive procedure and it doesn’t take a lot of time. However, you will still need to get a consultation with our doctor before getting it done. Here’s what you can expect:
You can ask our doctor to stop at any point if you’re not satisfied with the overall results of the fillers.
You can get on with your day immediately after the procedure is complete. There’s no recovery period and you don’t need to take a day off of work. You might experience some slight swelling or bruise at the injection sites, but that won’t last for more than 48 hours.
The fillers can last anywhere between six months to two years. The results vary from one patient to another. You can always come back to us for another treatment from Dr. Doumit. If you want to know more about our services or dermal fillers, don’t hesitate to call!
