Dermal fillers give many of the benefits of surgical face lifts without the downtime. Franciscan Health specialists deliver dermal filler treatments that make wrinkles less apparent.
Injectable dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers last anywhere from six months to a year but eventually fade as they are absorbed into the body.
Dermal fillers have been called "liquid facelifts" because they restore youthful fullness to your face; plump up your lips; enhance shallow contours; or soften facial creases and wrinkles caused by deteriorating collagen. While these treatments can't help with excess sagging skin, the soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results.
Available dermal fillers include Radiesse®, Perlane® and Restylane®.
