As facial tissues thin out, lines become etched around the nose and mouth and cheeks look a little hollow.
Dermal fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance.
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours.
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent.
More than 1 million men and women annually have choose this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime.

HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
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.
depending on the types of fillers and individual patient situation, the results last anywhere between several months to several years.
To maintain your results, your treatment provider will simply repeat treatment, adjusting the amount and techniques as necessary to ensure optimal results.
