Age can cause your facial features to lose volume, and increased skin laxity leads to lines, wrinkles, and folds. You can refresh your appearance with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers sculpt and smooth your features with no invasive procedures or recovery time.
What are Dermal Fillers?
All dermal fillers are injectables that add volume and soften lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers come in several varieties, and each excels in a particular area. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we often use hyaluronic acid fillers. This complex molecule can form long chains and cross-links that give each filler its unique properties.
What is Dermal Filler Used For?
We offer dermal fillers for most facial concerns. Each filler has been designed for a particular purpose.
Lines and Wrinkles
Restylane® is a family of dermal fillers that work to smooth lines and wrinkles. Belotero Balance® also works well for lines and wrinkles all over the face.
Lips and Mouth
We often recommend Juvederm® to address the fine vertical lines around the mouth. It can also add volume to the lips. Juvederm® Ultra and Restylane® Silk are designed for lip volume, so they have an especially soft, flexible texture.
Juvederm® Voluma is often the dermal filler for adding volume to the cheeks and sculpting facial features. It has a formula resilient enough to hold up in the mid-face area.
We recommend Juvederm® XC for nasolabial folds. Also known as smile lines, these deep folds travel from the corners of your nose to your mouth and can make your face look droopy.
Restylane® Refine and Restylane® Defyne have a flexible formula that makes them ideal for use in areas that move frequently. They provide natural-looking results even around your most active facial features.
You will start to see the results of your dermal fillers within a few days. Results may last from six to eighteen months. You can have touch-up treatments as often as needed to maintain your results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin, so reactions are highly unusual. Most people make good candidates for these dermal fillers. You may not be a good candidate if you have an infection in the treatment area or have certain health problems.
Capital laser and skin care is the best dermatology practice I’ve ever been to. I’ve seen both Dr. Peters and Dr. Tanzi, who are both extremely intelligent, caring, highly skilled, practical – and gorgeous! The staff is excellent – very caring, skilled, excellent training, professional, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Capital Laser to anyone seeking to take fabulous care of their skin. You will be in the best hands here.
