Restore Your Youthful Appearance with Dermal Fillers at Westerville Dermatology
What are Dermal Fillers?
As we age, our faces naturally lose volume, particularly fat compartments in our cheeks and chin. Not to mention the muscles and skin become loose and thinner, and our facial bones shrink and pull back, contributing to an aged appearance.
What was once a youthful, rounded face with smooth and soft angles becomes more narrow and hollows out in the temples, cheeks, chin, and jawline to create more shadows and sagging tissue.
With dermal fillers, our experienced physicians can address these cosmetic issues and improve signs of aging by strategically adding volume to various areas of the face, resulting in a revitalized appearance. Additionally, at Westerville Dermatology, we also offer dermal fillers for hands to restore lost volume.
During a dermal fillers treatment, your provider injects a filler solution into the skin, which adds volume and fullness to the face and/or hands, depending on your customized treatment plan. Dermal fillers are minimally-invasive and require little to no downtime.
