In the cosmetic industry, the term dermal filler refers to an assortment of injections that are used to plump up the skin and give patients a more youthful appearance. In our Southington, Connecticut, medspa, we prefer dermal fillers made out of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in your skin, but as you age, its supply diminishes. Our dermal fillers replenish this supply, rejuvenating your skin and improving your youthful glow.
Dermal fillers are very versatile injections that can be used in many areas on the face to solve a variety of issues that may make you self-conscious:
Around the Mouth and Nose to Reduce Wrinkles
Probably the most common reason we use dermal fillers in Southington, Connecticut, is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. This includes the nasolabial folds, laugh lines, and marionette lines, to name a few. For these types of wrinkles, we usually turn to Juvederm® XC or Restylane®. Once the dermal filler is injected, the wrinkles will be subtly filled and the skin will appear smooth.
Dermal Fillers Help Eliminate Acne Scars
If you are still dealing with recessed acne scars from your younger years, and nothing has seemed to help, then dermal fillers may be the answer. We will use Juvederm ® XC or Restylane® to meticulously inject the skin below the scars, and as the hyaluronic acid is replaced, the skin will fill out and greatly diminish the appearance of the scars.
Under the Eyes to Treat Dark Circles or Sunken Skin
Whether you suffer from chronic dark circles or you have sunken skin under your eyes as a result of aging, our medical spa in Southington, Connecticut, is here to help. By methodically injecting the area with either Juvederm ® XC or Restylane®, we are able to fill out this sensitive area and freshen up your appearance.
Dermal Fillers Add Volume to Thin Lips
Another great use of dermal fillers is to plump up thin lips. For this, we usually turn to Restylane® Silk because its finer particles allow us to be more precise. We will use just enough of the hyaluronic acid that you will see a noticeable difference; however, your lips will never look fake, and no one will be able to tell you had anything done.
On the Cheeks to Provide Contouring
The final reason we use dermal fillers in Southington, Connecticut, is to fill out and contour the mid-face area. When working in the cheek area, the dermal fillers that we turn to are Restylane® Lyft and Juvederm Voluma® XC. They were FDA-approved specifically for the cheek area and they allow us to be extremely specific with where we want the dermal filler to be.
With the help of dermal fillers, we can artfully sculpt your face and smooth out wrinkles to make you look up to a decade younger.
