What are dermal fillers?
If you’ve ever wanted plump lips, plump cheeks, or fewer deep wrinkles on your face or hands, dermal fillers can help you get these features. Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic applications that are thick and can mimic the texture of subdermal fat -- the fat that lies just beneath the skin to give your face a youthful plumpness. When applied by a skilled provider, such as Dr. Kim, dermal fillers can make cosmetic adjustments to your face or hands so you look more youthful.
How do dermal fillers work?
At Medical Institute of Healthy Aging, Dr. Kim and his team can restructure your face, improve its symmetry, reduce wrinkles, and achieve other facial enhancements using dermal fillers.
Dr. Kim skillfully injects your fillers using a very fine needle during a short office appointment. He places the injectables carefully, so you look youthful and rejuvenated but not overdone. You can still use all of your facial muscles to make expressions and speak clearly after getting dermal fillers.
What can dermal fillers treat?
Dermal fillers can add plumpness to the areas of your face that lose volume with age or those with naturally unshapely features. Using dermal fillers, you can improve the appearance of:
- Thin lips
- Asymmetrical lips
- Wrinkles around your mouth
- Chin creases and dimples
- Sunken cheeks
- Sunken temples
- Contour irregularities
- Bony hands
During your consultation at MIHA, you can discuss your goals with Dr. Kim and work with him to create a dermal filler treatment plan for you.
For extra enhancements for your appearance, Dr. Kim might recommend other treatments to add to your care plan like Dysport® for fine lines, microneedling for skin rejuvenation, or a chemical peel for skin resurfacing.
How long do dermal fillers last?
The amount of time your fillers last depends on their targeted treatment area. For most, the primary filler used at Medical Institute of Healthy Aging lasts for a total of 6-12 months.
If you enjoy the results of your dermal filler treatment, you can book follow-up injections at the Medical Institute of Healthy Aging to continue enjoying your new look.
