How are dermal fillers used?
There are many different ways that fillers can be used to enhance, volumize, and strengthen tissue. They are excellent for treating fine lines and wrinkles, replacing lost volume, and creating a natural and youthful look to the face. Common areas include: smile lines, marionette lines, cheeks, temples, lips, and so much more.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6-24 months depending on the actual product used and the amount injected. The great thing about these products is that they all stimulate collagen production, so that over time less filler may be required as the body builds up its own framework of collagen.
