IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING SOFT TISSUE FILLERS…
Over time, your face changes in many ways. It loses elasticity, volume and moisture. This natural process, plus genetics and environmental factors like sun exposure, can cause moderate to severe lines and folds such as parentheses, vertical lip, corner, and marionette lines to form around the nose and mouth.
While serums and creams can help moisturize the skin’s surface, soft tissue fillers go beneath the surface to reduce the appearance of deep lines and folds, and give you the natural-looking, long-lasting results you want. Lines and wrinkles form, but other changes also take place including volume loss in the cheek area or thinning lips. Some patients may have naturally thin lips and may simply desire more fullness. Fortunately, soft tissue dermal fillers are designed to treat all of these areas of the face. During your consultation, your treatment will be customized to your needs to deliver natural-looking, long-lasting results.
Soft tissue fillers include injectable gels usually made from modified hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. Using a fine needle, your doctor injects the smooth gel under the skin. Some soft tissue fillers also contain an anesthetic, called lidocaine, to help reduce discomfort during your treatment.
Soft tissue fillers are great non-surgical treatments that provide instant results. They deliver natural-looking and long-lasting results and are typically done in the office in less than 15 minutes.
As we age, our cheeks flatten and the skin may begin to sag due to loss of volume. Soft tissue fillers are designed to add just enough volume to gently lift and contour the cheek area.
Over time, your skin loses elasticity and moisture. This and other factors can cause lines and folds around the nose and mouth. Soft tissue fillers go beneath the surface to smooth and reduce the appearance of these wrinkles and folds.
Whether you’ve noticed your lips thinning over time or simply want fuller lips, soft tissue fillers can enhance your lips and give you the natural looking, long lasting results you desire.
