While many patients immediately think of cosmetic plastic surgeries such as a facelift to achieve the desired results, many are excited to learn about a less invasive method available. With dermal fillers, Dr. Richard H. Lee and his team can provide dramatic results without surgical interventions.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Our team describes dermal fillers as injectables used by a doctor to add volume to specific areas of the face. When injected into wrinkles and folds, it can smooth and soften these lines and restore a youthful look for both men and women. In addition, these dermal fillers can be used to plump thin lips or define specific facial features. Many of the dermal fillers available in our office are formulated using hyaluronic acid. This substance is naturally present in the skin and can attract water molecules. When a gel formulated with hyaluronic acid is injected by a professional into a wrinkle or fold, it can plump the area and smooth the skin for natural-looking enhancements.

Who is Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are popular and are widely used in a wide range of situations. Dermal fillers are typically best for facial features or for mild to moderate wrinkles or folds. The best candidates for these treatments are adult patients who want to avoid invasive surgeries and want to smooth or volumize specific areas of the face.

How Long do Dermal Fillers Last?

Dermal fillers do need to be reinjected regularly to help patients maintain the results. Most patients will find that anywhere from 4-months to a year may require another visit to the doctor for injections. Many patients can delay the need for surgery with dermal fillers on a regular basis, and will find it to be much more affordable as well.
