Dermal fillers, not to be confused with Botox, are soft tissue fillers that actually plump or otherwise fill in wrinkles or areas of the face. There are a variety of different products on the market and all may offer a little something different. Depending on what areas you would like to improve, Dr. John Park will be able to use his artistic eye and skillful injecting techniques with a variety of different dermal fillers to get you the result you desire.
The aging process can create deep folds or wrinkles in our skin and many times can cause loss of volume. This can result in an aged and tired look. Non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers can help you regain a youthful, relaxed and well-rested look without any downtime and with almost painless injections. In addition, these fillers can be added to your lips to enhance the fullness and minimize vermillion lines, which are the numerous fine lines around your lips that make it difficult to apply lipstick.
There are a variety of different products on the market that can help with temporarily reducing the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles. Some of these products are Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, Voluma, Restylane and Belotero. Each one of these products is a different type of tool to allow Dr. John Park to either, fill, sculpt, or add volume or any combination thereof to your face. Many times a combination of one or more of these products is what will give patients the most natural, refreshed and youthful appearance.
It is important to note that no matter how simple the procedure may sound it still takes an experienced and talented professional to safely and effectively use these types of products to achieve the desired outcome. No procedure should be taken lightly and it is always best to consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon such as Dr. John Park before making a decision that can impact your body and health. Because Dr. Park is also Board Certified in Ophthalmology, many patients choose him for their Botox and dermal filler treatments.
Dermal fillers can be performed by themselves, or combined with Botox or other surgical procedures. Results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on the products used. These non-surgical procedures offer a non-invasive, virtually painless way to combat two of the biggest signs of facial aging.
