Restore Youthful Smoothness and Plumpness to Your Face with Dermal Fillers
As time progresses our skin starts to lose collagen, becoming thinner and less elastic than it was before. In addition, this collagen depletion can make the skin lose facial volume which can add to an overall older-looking appearance. Dr. David Allison uses dermal filler injections to restore youthful smoothness and plumpness to the face.
What Dermal Fillers Can Correct
- Fill in wrinkles and lines
- Smooth out facial folds
- Restore lost facial volume
- Plump up lips
Dermal Filler Procedure
Dermal filler injections are performed in the office. The process typically takes less than 15 minutes. Injections are strategically placed to add a youthful contour to your face. Most patients only feel a slight pricking sensation, but it is not typically described as painful because we use numbing cream to make the injections more comfortable.
Dr. Allison offers several different types of dermal fillers, depending on the needs of his patients. He can recommend the right dermal filler for your unique facial rejuvenation goals:
- RADIESSE®: wrinkle filler and natural collagen stimulator
- Restylane®: moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds and lip enhancement
- JUVÉDERM®: moderate-to-severe facial lines and folds, especially around the mouth and nose
- JUVÉDERM Voluma®: volume to the cheek areas
Dermal Filler Recovery & Results
Recovery from dermal filler treatments is quick. In fact, most patients can resume activities right away. The results from treatments will depend on the type of dermal filler that is used. Most of the treatments will provide instant rejuvenation and continue to show improvement over time. Maximum RADIESSE results may take slightly longer as the product will continue to help your body produce collagen for a more youthful appearance.
Dermal filler injections will need to be repeated for maintenance – ranging from 4 months to 2 years, depending on treatment type.
