Thinning of facial tissue is a natural effect of aging. Though normal, this loss of facial volume can cause our youthful facial contours to diminish, resulting in a thinner, bonier, more hollowed, tired and aged look. This thinning of facial tissue also causes our skin to sag, creating deep wrinkles in the lower face. Injectable fillers come in a range of options and are designed to restore this lost volume to recreate a firm, smooth, fuller and youthful facial appearance.

Candidates for Injectable Fillers
People who benefit the most from injectable fillers are individuals who,over time, develop loss of volume in their face that results in thinning, sagging and wrinkling of their facial features. Some of the most common treatment areas for injectable dermal fillers are the nasolabial folds or smile lines and cheeks. Dermal fillers can also be used to augment the lips.

Your Injectable Filler Procedure
During your consultation, Dr. Andan assesses your areas of concern, then discusses your options and makes recommendations on the appropriate treatment. Dermal filler treatments are generally considered “lunchtime” procedures, meaning they require no downtime and should only take about 30 minutes to perform.
Your Recovery & Results
You can return to your normal routine following your dermal filler procedure. While some people experience some mild bruising after their treatment, injectable fillers require no downtime. If bruising occurs, it usually resolves within a few days.
Depending on the type of filler used, you may either notice your results immediately or gradually over the next few days. You should notice smoother facial contours and more flattering proportions. Sagging skin should appear naturally lifted, providing a youthful look, while the lips, or other areas treated should look fuller and rejuvenated.
