DERMAL FILLERS & INJECTABLES

 

INSTANT REJUVENATION.

Dermal fillers are composed of a soft injectable gel-like substance composed of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance found in your body. These fillers naturally combine with the water in your skin to restore lost fullness and smooth out stubborn lines and wrinkles.

As we age and skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays and environmental pollutants, skin cells lose their ability to produce hyaluronic acid which in effect causes your facial fullness and skin elasticity to be compromised. Dermal fillers replace the hyaluronic acid your skin needs to look healthy and youthful. It is best used for laugh lines, smoothing out wrinkles, augmenting cheeks and enhancing the size and shape of your lips. Fillers can only be injected by a certified medical professional.

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

During the consultation Dr. Ali will take your health history and determine the areas you are interested in treating. The treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. A numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area to minimize the pain. We also use fillers that are infused with lidocaine which is a numbing agent. This helps to minimize the discomfort experienced with the treatment.

 

The treatment is used in both men and women who want to enhance their facial features. Dr. Ali uses only the most superior products from Allergan. The Juvéderm VYCROSS range of hyaluronic acid based fillers including Volbella, Voluma and Volift are the gold standard for dermal fillers. During your consultation Dr. Ali will let you know which one will be best for you. Following treatment you may notice a bit of redness in the area. Swelling will occur but tends to resolve in 3 days. Dr. Ali will provide you with the after care instructions to minimize the swelling that occurs.

LIP AUGMENTATION

 

Soft and full lips are what most women are looking for. Lip enhancements can make lips appear more youthful and desirable. Fillers are used to increase the overall lip volume, correct uneven lips, smooth out fine lines around the the lips and correct the lip border. Fillers for lip augmentation are also composed of hyaluronic acid but a softer version than for dermal fillers. The difference is in the way the hyaluronic acid is cross linked. This treatment can significantly improve the balance of your facial features.
