Dermal Fillers and Injectables

Dermal Fillers and Injectables in Detroit, MI

Fine lines and wrinkles come with the natural aging of our skin. The elasticity and ability to restore the skin against damage from free radicals and the sun fades over time. This causes the skin to become unable to maintain its structure resulting in creases and lines. The remedy to restoring the youth of our skin has been long sought after. Now, thanks to modern medicine and technology there is a non-surgical solution. Injected dermal fillers can work with neurotoxins (such as Botox®) or independently to help you reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, creases and sunken facial areas. Fillers can be used to enhance the structure of the face when used on cheeks or lips. Birmingham Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Ahmet R. Karaca, M.D., offers dermal fillers and injectables for men and women who live in and around Detroit, Farmington Hills and the surrounding communities of Michigan.

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 give you the appearance you desire without the pain of invasive surgeries.

Topical and local anesthetics are administered prior to the procedure, depending on the exact location and extent of injections planned.

What Should I Expect Of The Recovery After My Injectable Filler Procedure?
