What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid (Juvederm®, Restylane), are commonly used to add volume to the face in the nasolabial folds, oral commissures, lips, and marionette lines.
As we age, collagen is lost in these facial areas and these lines start to deepen. These dermal fillers are injected right under the skin into to plump up these areas so that these lines are much less noticeable. Dermal fillers are also used for lip augmentation and are used by dentists for high lip line treatment, uneven lips, and to make the peri-oral area more esthetic. The face looks more youthful and is the perfect complement to any esthetic dentistry case that you do.
Dentists give injections all the time, and can greatly improve one’s appearance by injecting filler products into strategic facial areas. We also have a distinct advantage over other professionals who commonly provide these procedures in that we can deliver profound anesthesia in these areas before accomplishing these filler procedures. Dentists also have the unique advantage of exception knowledge of facial anatomy. Call Dr. Pappa’s office to schedule a consultation for esthetic fillers today.
