Dermal Fillers – Colchester, VT

Get Rid of Wrinkles & Revitalize Your Look

Have you noticed after Botox treatments that you still have wrinkles or scars on your face that you simply want to get rid of? That’s because Botox only treats dynamic or wrinkles caused by movement from smiling, squinting and frowning. We typically lose volume as we age, and dermal fillers help restore this by adding material under the skin in the dermis (hence the term ‘dermal’ filler). Adding volume helps the skin appear smoother and clearer. Many celebrities have had cheek fillers for a more youthful appearance, which also helps reduce nasolabial lines and gowls at the same time.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Though similar to BOTOX® in that they involve injections, dermal fillers are designed to target a different area. BOTOX® is meant to freeze and relax the muscles in the face while dermal fillers plump the area of the skin underneath the surface with a gel-like solution called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that attract water molecules. Over time, people lose collagen from the aging process resulting in wrinkles, sunken areas of skin, and minimal elasticity. With dermal fillers, you can also help stimulate collagen production so you can enjoy a more voluminous and youthful appearance. The results are instant!

Who’s a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
