Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that restore volume and smooth out skin wrinkles to create a more youthful appearance. These treatments can be used on the lips, forehead, and around the nose and mouth to improve contours. Results generally last between six months and two years.

At Huntington Plastic Surgery Institute, our team of board-certified plastic surgeons and medical professionals work together with patients to ensure that they receive the best work possible. We understand the importance of putting your best face forward, and we’re committed to helping all kinds of people do just that.

What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Facial fillers in Pasadena restore facial volume that is thinning or lost due to aging. This lack of volume often leads to obvious signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and hollow cheeks. Dermal fillers can help individuals combat these developments for a younger look, and offer the following benefits:

  • Plump lips and reduced lip lines
  • Volumized cheeks
  • Softened wrinkles

Patient Information

What’s the Difference Between Botox and Dermal Fillers?
Botox is a nerve-blocking injection that paralyzes muscles in the targeted area. As a result, facial wrinkles are softened due to minimized movement in the muscles.

Botox only works on lines that are caused by muscle activity, like frowning or squinting. This means that Botox cannot treat lines or creases that occur as a result of aging, like sagging skin, loss of volume, etc.

To restore plumpness in these areas and fill out lines, dermal fillers are very often the best approach.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
Candidates for dermal fillers should be in good health and have realistic expectations about results. It’s also important that patients understand that dermal fillers are temporary rejuvenation treatments that require follow-up visits to maintain and which may not be able to achieve the same results as a surgical procedure such as a traditional facelift.

To find out which procedure or treatments are right for you, we encourage you to schedule a consultation. We can discuss your desired results and customize a plan that best fits your needs.
