Dermal fillers are materials that can be applied to facial tissue to improve its appearance.
Popular facial treatments we offer include:
- An injectable procedure that can smooth out wrinkles, soften facial creases and even improve the appearance of overly thin lips.
- Juvederm, which can restore volume to your face.
- A wide variety of temporary fillers that wear off within a month.
There are several kinds of dermal fillers. Some are temporary and saline-based, meaning they mainly consist of water that’s eventually absorbed into the body. Others are more long-term, having an effect that lasts for months or even years.
Either way, a dental clinic is arguably the single best place to get dermal fillers and injectable facial treatments. This is because dentists are highly knowledgeable in facial anatomy, down to every muscle and tendon. This makes them better-suited than anyone to apply these types of treatments, where precision affects the end result so drastically.
These treatments are to healthy-looking skin what whitening is to teeth: a way to turn back the clock and bring back that beautiful, youthful glow. Nearly three million Americans use injectables and dermal fillers and other facial treatments every year. This alone should tell you a lot about how trusted and outstanding they are.
The mechanism of injectables is simple. When injected, they stop the affected minor muscles from contracting and therefore does away with wrinkles and saggy skin without affecting any major muscles.
Juvederm can also help reverse wrinkles, acne scars, sagging skin and even misaligned facial features (to a degree). The filler contains some topical anesthetic, so the procedure is virtually painless and quickly over, especially if you’re getting treated by a dentist.
As with most dermal fillers, expect a few days of downtime after the procedure. The gel needs some time to get absorbed into your body, and you’re also likely to have some minor bruises immediately after the procedure.
