DERMAL FILLERS

Produced naturally in your body, hyaluronic acid adds volume underneath facial skin along with fat cells, collagen and elastin. As you get older, natural hyaluronic acid reserves begin to break down but this can be remedied with dermal fillers that reduce wrinkles and fine lines and creates plumper lips. Just a small amount of dermal fillers are needed to make a noticeable difference to your image, taking years off your appearance.

Typically fillers are used to enhance smile lines, corners of the mouth, lips and marionette lines.

Usable on its own or together with other treatments such as Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections and laser resurfacing, the effects of a dermal filler are similar to that of a non-surgical facelift. The procedure is suitable for all types of skin and no allergies will be triggered as hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, making it safe to use on any individual.

Typically fillers are used to enhance smile lines, corners of the mouth, lips and marionette lines.

Humans lose 1% of dermal collagen per year especially over age 50. Fillers are FDA approved to use as a replacement for lost collagen. They are curative, preventative and non toxic.

Fillers can be permanent, semi permanent and temporary. At Dental Arts of Huntley, we use only temporary fillers (Juvaderm Ultra XC and Juvaderm Ultra Plus XC).
