Dermal Fillers, often referred to liquid face lifts, offer many of the same benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime. Dermal Fillers are injectable fillers that act by plumping the skin in areas around the injection site, giving the skin a more youthful appearance.
Dermal Fillers can be used to temporarily erase and rejuvenate:
- Facial fine lines and wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Thin lips
- Loose skin
- Sculpt the cheeks
- Restore a youthful oval shape to the face
How Dermal Filler Work
Over time, aging causes the upper layer of skin, the epidermis. As the body ages, it also loses its ability to produce collagen which helps keep the skin cells turgid and plump. A second layer of skin, called the dermis, contains blood vessels, nerves and hair follicles. Collagen is a vital component of the dermis and acts as a support for the skin, giving the skin its strength and elasticity and diminishes with age, creating wrinkles, fine lines and creases.
Dr. Chong is pleased to offer several products to help reverse the signs of aging, giving you a more youthful appearance:
Juvéderm® is made with hyaluronic acid, a substance which occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid acts along with collagen to give volume and support to the skin. Results last for up to one year and with periodic follow-up treatments, its effects can last even longer.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
Juvéderm Volbella® XC has been customized with a lower hyaluronic acid concentration, adding subtle volume to the lips and softening the appearance of perioral lines. This soft, smooth gel provides subtle lip fullness and softens the appearance of lines. Results last for up to one year and with periodic follow-up treatments, its effects can last even longer.
Radiesse® Volumizing Filler acts as a scaffold underneath your skin by providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow for long-lasting results.
Belotero is a unique dermal filler approved by European regulators (CE mark) and the FDA that seamlessly integrates with your skin and adapts to your facial contours, therefore, plumps and adds volume to your face
Restylane® is a clear, injectable synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid and is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. With just one treatment, you can have a freshly rejuvenated, more youthful look.
Sculptra Aesthetic® replaces lost collagen in a series of treatments, generally three injection sessions over a period of a few months, but can vary from person to person.
If you are over 18 years of age, not pregnant or breastfeeding, then you may be an excellent candidate for Dermal Filler treatments.
Using a very thin needle syringe, Dr. Chong will inject one of these Dermal Fillers into the area to be treated. The entire process takes about 15 minutes, and there is no recovery time.
Dr. Chong will be happy to consult with you personally to help you decide if a Dermal Filler is the best option to help you look and feel younger. To ensure patient safety and the best results possible, Dr. Chong and her staff are certified to administer Dermal Fillers.
