Dermal Fillers

What is dermal filler therapy?

Dermal filler therapy has been widely accepted by patients in North America, much more so than cosmetic dentistry. You don’t need to believe me — just ask any esthetic patient if they have heard of dermal fillers injections. Ask patients if they have ever had Botox or dermal fillers and you will quickly find that these are immensely popular esthetic therapies.

Facial Fillers / Injections

What Are Facial Fillers?

Facial fillers are products which contain collagen, hyaluronic acid, or calcium hydroxyapatite that rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through facial injections. With age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Exposure to sun and years of muscle movement (squinting, chewing, smiling) contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin.

Facial fillers are temporary to long-lasting solutions administered through a few tiny facial injections on specific areas of the face. Various types of facial fillers are available; each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation. A qualified dental or medical professional can help you determine which facial injections and what injectable fillers treatments are right for you. Dermal fillers which act as wrinkle fillers will volumize creases and folds in the face in areas that have lost fat and collagen as we age. Hyaluronic acid is the natural filler substance in your body. As we age the amount of Hyaluronic acid we have lessens, and the face starts to lack volume and appears aged with deeper nasolabial folds, unaesthetic marionette lines, a deeper mentalis fold, the lips start to thin, and turning down the corners of the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane Revanesse, and Juvederm are then injected extraorally right underneath these folds to replace the volume lost which creates a younger look in the face. Dermal fillers can be used for high lip line cases, asymmetrical lips, lip augmentation, and completing cosmetic dentistry cases by creating a beautiful, young-looking frame around the teeth.
