Are you ready to find out what dermal fillers could do for your skin?

While aging is something that we can’t escape, it doesn’t mean our face needs to give away how old we are. And our Deerfield, IL dermal fillersdermatologists have the answer you’ve been looking for to give your skin that more youthful appearance without the need for invasive cosmetic dermatology.

What problems do dermal fillers address?

Dermal fillers are great for smoothing out lines and folds around the nose and mouth (sometimes referred to as “laugh lines”). They can also give lips more fullness, and improve skin’s volume to give you a more youthful appearance. And because dermal fillers can increase volume, it’s also great for reducing the appearance of superficial scars caused by acne or chicken pox.

How do they work?

Dermal fillers can be made from either synthetic or natural material, which our Deerfield skin doctor will inject into the skin to target skin depressions, folds and wrinkles.

While many people believe Botox is a dermal filler because it is also injected into the skin, the two treatments work a bit differently. Botox actually temporarily stops muscles from contracting to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while dermal fillers help to smooth out and plump certain areas of the skin without affecting the muscles.

When will I see results and how long will they last?

This will depend on the type of dermal filler you choose, but results can be immediate or it can take up to a week for the filler to take full effect. Your results can also last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on which dermal filler you get. Plus, you can always choose to get another quick treatment in a few months to help maintain your results for longer.

If you’ve been considering getting dermal fillers in Deerfield, IL, it’s time you talked to our dermatologist to find out which type is right for you. Call Deerfield Dermatology Associates today to schedule your consultation.
