Also called soft-tissue fillers, dermal fillers, and soft-tissue augmentation.
As we age, our skin loses its youthfulness. Fillers help to restore lost fullness to the face, lips, and hands. Fillers are popular for several reasons. Patients like that they can return to everyday activities immediately after getting most fillers. They like the immediate results that many types of fillers deliver. Patients also like that they can get this treatment during an office visit. Some fillers require a few office visits. With a number of fillers now available, dermatologists can diminish signs of aging that appear on the face, lips, and hands. Fillers can effectively do the following:
- Restore fullness to cheeks, hollow areas under the eyes, and deep creases.
- Diminish scars.
- Erase fine lines.
- Plump lips.
- Lift the brow or a downturned mouth.
- Rejuvenate hands.
Dermal fillers have been popular for years. People like that these injections can diminish facial lines and plump up sagging skin on their face (and hands). You can get these injections with Dr. Kim Ross MD, and most fillers have virtually no downtime.
This popularity has fueled many advances in dermal fillers. New injection techniques and more FDA-approved fillers are giving patients better results than ever.
What's better about today's fillers?
The biggest breakthrough may be that patients are seeing more natural-looking results. Injected properly, you'll look refreshed. Friends, family, and co-workers, however, aren't likely to know what you've done. The results look that natural.
The breakthroughs go beyond natural looking results. It's now possible for fillers to give you:
- Less-noticeable hollow areas under your eyes.
- Youthful lips without making your lips bigger.
- Younger-looking hands.
- An overall more-youthful (and rested) appearance.
- Less-painful injections.
- Longer-lasted results.
