Dermal & Wrinkle Fillers
What are Dermal and Wrinkle Fillers?
As we age, you might start noticing wrinkles on your forehead, around your eyes (resembling what looks like crow’s feet) between our eyebrows, around the nose and mouth. Your skin begins to lose it’s elasticity and volume. To prevent these dramatic changes there are treatments known as dermal fillers. The dermal filler treatment involves injectable gels that are a non-surgical solution to newly formed lines and wrinkles. These fillers help restore collagen to the skin and may last up to a year. The following products are considered “fillers” and are used to smooth out facial lines.
