How do dermal fillers work?

iStock 1191507615Men and women who look in the mirror and are dissatisfied with the aging face staring back at them may be wondering what they can do to turn back the hands of time. Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee of Huntington Station, NY is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who does not offer facial plastic surgery procedure, but instead provides nonsurgical, minimally-invasive alternatives. This includes the use of dermal fillers to treat fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face. 

What is a dermal filler? 

A dermal filler is a soft, injectable gel that is formulated with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules and adds volume directly where it is needed—within wrinkles and folds on the face. When injected by a qualified, experienced provider such as Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee, patients can quickly and easily enhance their appearance. 

How do dermal fillers work? 

Cosmetic dermal fillers are intended to provide hyaluronic acid into the areas where fine lines and wrinkles have appeared. This revitalizes the area, adding volume to the skin and instantly diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. It restores a natural, softer look to the skin for a more youthful appearance, ensuring patients smooth away problematic imperfections around the mouth, nose, and eyes. All dermal fillers available at the practice of Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee are approved by the FDA for cosmetic enhancement of the facial area. 

How long do dermal fillers last? 

Dermal fillers are not a permanent solution in the same way a facelift or brow lift would be. Instead, they are a more temporary option for patients who are not quite ready for facial surgeries. Most of our dermal fillers will last several months before patients will need further reinjections to maintain their changes.
