Dermal Fillers

When we age, wrinkles, lines and folds in the skin come with the territory. But today’s dermal fillers can turn back the clock and help patients look younger without surgery.

Thanks to its ability to store moisture, hyaluronic acid is responsible for giving skin a plump, hydrated look. It’s used topically to moisturize, but a cream or serum can’t restore lost volume—only injectable hyaluronic acid can. Once injected it can add to the natural plumping action, or replenish your body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid, which diminishes as you age.

One of the reasons injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are increasingly popular is their ability to add volume and decrease wrinkles with a single visit to the doctor. Results typically last for three to six months, depending on the location of the injection. Research suggests that HA injections may stimulate collagen production, leading to fresher-looking skin in the long run.

Your Dermal Filler Choices

When it comes to facial fillers that smooth lines and add volume to sagging skin, today’s latest treatments are a natural!

One of the reasons injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are increasingly popular is their ability to add volume and decrease wrinkles with a single visit to the doctor. Results typically last for six to twelve months, depending on the location of the injection. At Midwest Dermatology, patients have the choice or two dermal fillers – or you can have a little of both – and our experienced physicians will help you find the best filler for naturally smoother, younger looking skin.

JUVEDERM

Juvederm is the #1 hyaluronic filler in the U.S. This smooth, injectable gel filler gently reverses the signs of aging. You may have heard of hyaluronic acid – its nature’s fountain of youth, thanks to its ability to store moisture and give skin a plump, hydrated look. At your Juvederm treatment, your Midwest Dermatology physician will evaluate your facial lines and gently inject filler into areas such as the “parentheses lines” – the deeper lines that surround your nose and mouth – or lip lines. Juvederm can also return volume to your lips for subtle enhancement.

RESTYLANE

A powerhouse anti-wrinkle filler, Restylane is designed to smooth deeper wrinkles as well as replenish the volume of sagging skin. Whether you are looking to change the look of your laugh lines, lipstick lines, marionette lines, corners of the mouth, or lips, Restylane can enhance all areas and provide you with a smooth and natural looking, and immediate results.

Natural Looking Filler

When expertly injected, filler should look natural. Whether you prefer the gentle plumping of your skin with Juvederm or the smoothing of deeper wrinkles with Restylane, It matters who does your filler. You should see board certified and trained physicians for any injectable treatment. Just like any medical procedure, there are risks for infection, discoloration, and lumps if injections are done incorrectly.

After about six months, the hyaluronic acid fillers are naturally broken down by the body. So, you have to get touchups once or twice a year to maintain the look. It’s important to note that getting filler doesn’t stop your skin from aging, so you will need regular treatment sessions to get the same results over time.
