What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers can be used to enhance lip volume and define lip borders. They are used to fill out shallow facial contours and enhance cheekbone appearance. They can even be used in the hands and ear lobes.
As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and collagen. This can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin that takes away from our youthful appearance. One way to enhance the skin’s appearance and look years younger is through the use of dermal fillers.
Fillers, like Restylane, Juvéderm, Voluma, and Radiesse have many benefits and uses.
Dermal fillers not only reduce fine lines and wrinkles but also plump up the skin to improve skin texture and skin tone.
Lip volume shrinks over time and a “thin lip” is an “aging lip”. Lip fillers can produce a very natural and attractive look. Dr. McLaren specializes in lip fillers and guarantees you will look so natural that “only your Doctor knows for sure.”
Injectables can also reduce the lines that can appear between your eyebrows. These are referred to as the “11’s” or frown lines. As we age, they become more prominent and can give an “angry” look. Injectables can help to ease this harsh look.
An eyebrow lift, but without the need for surgery. Can be achieved with fillers like Voluma or Radiesse.
While injectables are known to be used for facial lines and wrinkles, they can be used in other areas as well, including neck wrinkles and hand rejuvenation.
If you want to plump and lift your cheeks, improve the appearance of forehead lines or the frown lines between your eyebrows, laugh lines, marionette lines, smoker or perioral lines or wrinkles on the neck, injectables may be the answer you are looking for.
