Dermal Fillers Improve The Appearance Of Undereye Bags
Fillers Are Ideal for Improving Lip Lines
Among the most common area where dermal fillers are used is the nasolabial folds (lines between the nostrils and the corners of your mouth).
Second to the eyes, the mouth is often the center of attention. It is also particularly exposed to aging. Juvederm, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft and Belotero can be used to restore lost volume, smooth out wrinkles or simply to rehydrate the lips. Many patients are leary lip augmentation for fear of a resulting duck lip appearance. At Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, our expert injectors are skilled at enhancing your own natural lip shape. The latest edition to our dermal filler menu, is Restylane Silk, a very fluid, yet sturdy filler FDA approved specifically for lip augmentation. A fine ribbon of Restylane Silk injected along the lip borders achieves a more defined and youthful lip shape, without the risk of appearing duck-like.
Redness, bruising and swelling can occur with dermal filler injections, but usually resolve within a few days. (Read how to avoid bruising in our Bruise News blog.) The filler will last up to a year before being reabsorbed by your body. A safety benefit of hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers is that the effects can be reversed by an enzyme, returning you to your original state.
