Dermal Fillers

A life of laughter can affect the skin around your mouth, making it loose and creased. If you want to lose any unwanted wrinkles and regain your youthful appearance, then dermal fillers may be the option for you.

Dermal fillers can help smooth out any facial creases, helping your skin to look younger and brighter. It works by injecting a safe filler material to fill out the area under your skin, spreading the area out to smooth out wrinkles and creases caused by age, sun exposure, or both.

What are dermal fillers?

The effects of aging affects everyone, and that includes our skin. Over time, our skin tends to become loose, wrinkled and creased. Dermal fillers can be used to increase the volume of the skin around the mouth and lips, leading to a more youthful appearance.

A safe filling material is injected in various points under the skin which helps to fill out any affected areas. This smoothes out the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles while adding volume and definition.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Yes, dermal fillers are absolutely safe to use when provided by a qualified healthcare provider in a clean and sterile environment such as Modern Family Dentists LLC.

Due to the stringent restrictions in the United States, there are only 6 approved filler materials. When compared to over 140 fillers approved in the UK and Europe, this gives you a good idea of the standards required by U.S. practitioners when providing dermal fillers. We use face mapping technology to reduce any risk of asymmetry, lumps and under or overcorrection.

What happens when I have a dermal filler?

After speaking with us and arranging your appointment, we will use our face mapping technology to find the most suitable places to fill. We will then talk you through the procedure, and answer any questions you may have.

You will then receive a local anesthetic cream or injection to numb the area to be treated. We will then inject the necessary amount of filler into the area which will fill out the area beneath the skin, giving it a smoother and more defined look.

Once the procedure is done, you are free to leave our office and carry on with your day looking brighter than before – it’s that simple, quick and straightforward.

Will anyone be able to tell I’ve had dermal fillers?

Your skin will appear much brighter, smoother and youthful, so anyone you spend a lot of time with will most likely compliment you on your new younger appearance. However, other than a natural-looking smoothness of your skin, there is no way that anyone can see you’ve had dermal fillers.

How long do dermal fillers last?

On average, a typical dermal filling will last around 6 months. There are some materials that can last permanently, but these can carry extra risks. Here at Modern Family Dentists LLC, we will always be happy to discuss the various types of fillers most suitable for your needs.
