What are facial dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to fill in lines, wrinkles, and scars. Unlike face lifts that stretch the skin, fillers add volume for a more natural youthful appearance. Fillers can also increase the fullness of the lips and lessen the downward slant of the corner of lips. The most common areas treated are the smile lines around the nose and mouth, fine lines above the mouth, frown lines between the eyes, loss of volume around the eye and cheek area, and acne scars. We use Restylane®, Sculptra™, or Juvederm™, depending on your individual needs.
Is there much bruising with dermal fillers?
No. All my patients start BruiseKare the day before the injection with minimal resultant bruising.
