Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic solutions that plump up your skin and fill in wrinkles, scars, and other imperfections. 

Fillers work by replenishing your body’s hyaluronic acid, a naturally produced substance that keeps your tissues lubricated and voluminous. As you get older, your body makes less hyaluronic acid, leaving your skin more dry and loose. 

A single injection of a dermal filler can diminish your wrinkles and rejuvenate your skin for months at a time. Fillers are also thought to boost collagen production, giving your skin an even fuller and smoother look.

 

What conditions are treated with fillers?

The Shine Dental team uses fillers to treat:

  • Thin lips
  • Irregular lip border
  • Fine lines
  • Forehead furrows
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Frown lines
  • Smile lines
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Smoker’s lines

Fillers can also reduce the appearance of acne scars and uneven skin texture.

 

What dermal fillers are available?

Shine Dental offers a variety of fillers, including:

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel that’s most often used to smooth wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.

Radiesse®

Radiesse is a non-animal calcium hydroxylapatite complex with cellulose that’s an excellent alternative for patients with allergies.

Restylane®

Restylane is designed to replenish your body’s hyaluronic acid, smoothing out wrinkles around your mouth and nose or plumping up the volume of your lips. 

Your provider works with you to determine which filler is best for your cosmetic goals.

 

Am I a candidate for dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are excellent solutions for patients who:

  • Don’t smoke
  • Are physically active 
  • Avoid sunburns

Your Shine Dental provider conducts a thorough examination to determine whether your skin and lifestyle are suitable for dermal fillers and which filler is best for you. 

 

What can I expect during a dermal fillers appointment?

Your journey to more radiant skin with dermal fillers begins with a consultation. Your dentist conducts a comprehensive skin analysis to determine which filler is going to be the most effective at reducing your wrinkles. 

Next, your provider cleans your skin and marks the injection sites. Then, they gently insert the filler using a syringe. The whole process takes less than an hour.

You’ll notice a difference almost immediately, and your results can last for up to a year. 

To turn back the hands of time and make your wrinkles a thing of the past, schedule a fillers appointment with Shine Dental. Call the office to schedule an appointment or book online today.
