Injectable dermal fillers can help you reduce signs of aging and add volume and new definition to facial features. With popular options such as JUVÉDERM®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, and Belotero, Dr. Dina Harris-Rodriguez can fill in deep wrinkles, smooth out lines and creases between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), and renew contours in the lips, cheeks, and other areas. Many of our dermal filler options are composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body, and do not require an allergy test. Treatments involve injection of the dermal filler into the areas targeted for rejuvenation. A local anesthetic can be applied to these areas so you are as comfortable as possible during the procedure. Most treatments last only about 30 minutes, and patients can typically resume their daily routines immediately.
Results from dermal fillers will vary depending on which type of filler you receive; however, many of the dermal fillers we use at our practice have very long-lasting effects – six months to a year in some cases. Plus, you can keep the effects going with occasional “touch-up” treatments.
