While plastic surgery on the face can definitely improve the appearance of skin laxity and aging, it is an invasive procedure that should not be considered lightly. For some patients who have mild to moderate aging issues, nonsurgical solutions may be best. The doctors of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads are pleased to provide a selection of nonsurgical treatments for aging skin, including dermal fillers.
What are dermal fillers and how do they work?
Dermal fillers, as described by the team of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, are enhancement options for patients to consider when faced with fine lines and wrinkles. These cosmetic injectables are formulated with hyaluronic acid, which attracts water and improves volume where it is injected. Drs. Vonu, Blanchard, Zwicklbauer, and Lofgren assist men and women in choosing dermal fillers most appropriate for their unique needs.
How are dermal fillers used?
The best way utilize dermal fillers is for treating fine lines and wrinkles on the facial area. This may include nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and forehead folds. During a consultation appointment with one of our professionals, patients can point out the areas of concern that they would like to improve. Our team will provide a thorough evaluation and can make recommendations for patients based on their unique situation. Then patients will book their appointment, during which one of our professionals will administer the injectable into the areas of concern. Results are seen immediately, and patients will find that they do not need further injections until months after their first appointment. Maintenance of the results will require continued treatments until patients decide to stop treatments or consider the advantage of facial plastic surgery.
