The body’s ability to restore skin against damage from natural causes fades over time, resulting in creases and lines. Now, there is a non-surgical solution that can help repair those inevitable damages. Injected dermal fillers can work with neurotoxins (such as Botox®) or independently to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and sunken facial areas. Fillers can also be used to enhance the structure of the face when used on cheeks or lips.
What Are Injectable Fillers?
Using a small hypodermic needle, injectable fillers are a solution that helps plump the skin to reduce fine lines, creases, wrinkles, and sagging. This FDA-approved procedure is safe and results in youthful, resilient skin without the risk of scarring. Juvederm® and Radiesse® are among the top filler choices to achieve the appearance you desire without the pain of invasive surgeries.
Dermal Fillers and Injectables Offered
The Injectable Filler Procedure
Injectable fillers are a series of quick and painless injections administered with a hypodermic needle directly under the surface of the skin. Depending on the target area selected and the specific goals desired, injections are generally close together with minimal bleeding.
Results of the Injectable Filler Procedure
The effectiveness of dermal fillers varies by the solution type and location of injection, but treatments can last anywhere from six months to two years. All injectable dermal fillers should be considered a temporary solution, and routine maintenance is recommended. It is easiest to schedule your appointments at pre-planned intervals, such as every six months, to ensure long-term results. Dr. Karaca will be able to help determine the best long-term plan at your consultation.
