Dermal Fillers are smooth injectable gels containing hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in youthful skin. Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance, it binds and absorbs water to restore volume in the face. This facial rejuvenation treatment is infused with lidocaine to maximize comfort during injection. Dermal Fillers may be used for the lower third of the face including the cheeks, chin, and lips. Dermal Fillers address multiple areas around the mouth and nose including smile lines, wrinkles above the lip, vertical lines, and creases of the cheek. Results can last up to one year with one treatment.
