What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable products that are used to help eliminate the lines, wrinkles and folds caused by loss of facial volume that occurs as part of the natural aging process.

Over the years the fat in our face atrophies, causing a slow deflation of the upper and mid-face. At the same time our hyaluronic acid and collagen levels in the skin diminish, contributing to the formation of wrinkles.

The dermal fillers that Dr. Plant uses are injectable gels made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally produced compound similar to what the body has lost, to plump up deflated areas and soften facial lines, like the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Dermal fillers can also help to get rid of eye bags or enhance facial features such as your lips, cheeks, and jawline by adding volume for fullness and definition.

Am I the right candidate for dermal fillers?

If you are looking to reduce wrinkles of the face or restore lost volume you may be a candidate for dermal fillers. Filler is available for both men and women seeking minimally invasive solutions to restore or improve their aesthetic appearance.

A consultation with Dr. Plant is necessary to determine if dermal fillers are the right treatment for you. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an allergy to hyaluronic acid (HA) products, then you should not undergo treatment with HA-based dermal fillers.

What dermal fillers does Dr. Plant offer?

Dr. Plant offers several different types of dermal filler for different areas of the face, but works mostly with fillers in the Restylane Emervel Collection. This is a premium line of fillers that uses XpresHAn Technology to allow for better integration and flexibility with facial movement than previous generations of HA fillers. This line includes Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Volyme, and Restylane Kysse.

Experience Counts
