What Are Dermal Fillers?

A major component of the aging face is the loss of volume resulting in a deflated or sunken appearance. Replacing facial volume with fillers is a reliable method of restoring a more youthful look with no downtime! Some fillers are delicate and work well for fine lines, while others are more robust and work well for replacing larger areas of volume loss.

While dermal fillers are casually known as “wrinkle fillers,” they can do much more than just smooth out wrinkles, although they are excellent at this too! Here are a few of the common issues dermal fillers can help address:

  • Smooth out lines around nose and mouth (a.k.a. marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses)

  • Enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples

  • Diminish vertical lip lines

  • Plump & enhance the lips

  • Smooth out a chin crease

  • Improve symmetry among facial features

How long the effects of dermal fillers will last depends on the product, the area of treatment, and the patient. Generally speaking, the denser the product is and the more deeply it is injected, the longer it will last, although this is not a hard and fast rule. To maintain your results, Dr. Kim will simply repeat treatment, adjusting the amount and techniques as necessary to ensure optimal results.
