Many busy people in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan region rely on injectable dermal fillers to refresh their appearance without committing to a lengthy recovery time. These non-surgical, anti-aging solutions are a safe, minimally invasive way to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Learn more about what fillers can do for you and what results you can expect.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Fillers are FDA-approved products that add hydration and voume when injected in precise areas under your skin. While they are available with different consistencies and particle sizes to achieve various results, most dermal fillers consist of naturally occurring substances like hyaluronic acid and poly-L-lactic acid. These work to emphasize your facial contours and minimize wrinkles by stimulating your body’s collagen production process.
- Cheeks: With the effects of time, gravity, and lifestyle choices, the fat pads in your mid-face will shift downward, which could make you look gaunt. Fillers such as Revanesse Versa will help bring back a healthy and youthful look.
- Lips: Fillers from the Restylane and Juvéderm product families provide a plump, youthful lip enhancement. Dr. West recommends a more conservative approach instead of the exaggerated “trout pout” popularized by beauty bloggers.
- Tear troughs: Prominent dark circles and hollows under your eyes are difficult to conceal, even with makeup. Expertly applied tear trough filler is a solution for people who are tired of having others assume they are sick or fatigued due to this common characteristic of aging.
- Nasolabial folds: Dynamic wrinkles, like the parentheses lines bracketing your mouth, can make you look years older. Today’s state-of-the-art fillers can adapt to facial movements more readily than in years past.
After meeting with you and learning more about your aesthetic goals, Dr. West will recommend a customized dermal filler plan to deliver long-lasting anti-aging results for you.
