Dermal Fillers

Wrinkle Reduction with Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can restore fullness to the face, plump thin lips, and soften wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. Women and men alike are discovering the benefits and cost effectiveness of these “liquid facelifts”. They provide a fresh and youthful appearance by filling facial wrinkles and deep creases. Dermal fillers and fat transfer offer many of the benefits of a face lift or eyelid surgery at a fraction of the cost, and they do it with no downtime.

Dr. Sarah Mess works with several fillers including Voluma, Juvederm, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Radiesse, and Belotero to provide patients with the best options to achieve the look they desire.

Techniques And Options for Wrinkle Reduction

”Liquid facelifts” allow women and men to delay surgical procedures and still enjoy the benefits of smoother skin, fuller lips, and youthful cheeks. Surgery allows for the most permanent and best results to address loose skin and excessive wrinkles, but surgery does not fit everyone’s schedule or budget and many people need only minimal changes to achieve impressive results. Most people don’t need or want a facelift in their 40‘s, but plenty of men and women can benefit from the advantages of fillers at this age.

These hyaluronic fillers can:

  • Soften Naso-Labial folds
  • Fill Gabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows)
  • Provide Lip enhancement
  • Add Volume to Sagging Cheeks and Restore Volume Under Eyes
  • Treat Marionette lines

Preparing for Dermal Fillers

Dr. Mess will evaluate your skin and facial features during the initial consolation and review the areas that concern you and then map out a plan to achieve your goals. Some plans incorporate multiple fillers.

The Procedure

Once the plan is agreed to Dr. Mess will clean the area and inject the filler. After the injection the face will be cleaned again and ice provided. You should continue to apply ice for the next 1/2 hour to reduce swelling. Be careful not to forcefully rub the injection site or apply too much pressure to treated areas.

Recovery After Dermal Filler Injection

Patients may experience some bruising and swelling at the injection sites. Continue to ice and these symptoms should fade within a couple of days. Dr. Mess carries a small line of Jane Iredale mineral make up specially developed as a post procedure cover up. It’s a wonderful complement to your new look.

Long Term Results after Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers will immediately add volume, smooth wrinkles, and improve facial contours. They are safe and effective, but they are not permanent. Areas with lots of movement like around the mouth may require more frequent filler than areas in the cheeks. Talk to Dr. Mess or her staff about when to set up your next treatment.

How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost

Cost is a consideration for any cosmetic procedure, but it is important to remember that your ultimate satisfaction will be based on a lot more than fee. Dr. Mess combines the training, experience and dedicated care to provide exceptional results. She takes pride in helping women and men achieve their cosmetic goals with dermal fillers.

Commonly Combined Procedures with Dermal Fillers

Don’t ignore your skin. Dermal fillers are usually only part of the solution to aging appearance. Their benefits are greatly enhanced when combined with appropriate skincare, chemical peels, and Botox.  The combined effects of a multi treatment approach offer patients the best results.
