At Long Island Dermatology we offer a wide variety of minimally invasive, aesthetic enhancement techniques. Some of our most popular and effective, include the use of popular injectable dermal fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are some of the most popular injectable treatments around today, designed to help patients to diminish facial lines and restore the effects of aging, facial volume loss, and much more. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle or skincare regimen.
What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
Injectable dermal fillers offer patients a number of age-defying benefits. Including:
- Plump thin lips
- Enhance shallow contours
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
- Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
- Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids
Hyaluronic Acid Based Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid injections can be used to improve the skin’s contour and reduce depressions in the skin due to scars, injury or lines. You can see potentially dramatic improvements for a number of different issues. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body, mostly within connective tissue as well as certain high fluid areas along the skin. When Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane are injected into the body, they can help provide patients with the volume they need as well as the moisture their skin needs.
Results & Treatment
The best part of these dermal fillers is that results can generally be seen instantly, and they will steadily improve over the course of the next few months. In addition, unlike more invasive treatments, results aren’t as permanent, meaning if a patient would like to use more or less filler on their next treatment, they can.
