Botox and Dermal fillers

Botox and Dermal fillers

Botox and Dermal fillers we offer: Juvederm, Radiesse, Voluma.

Dermal fillers are materials, either naturally-derived or synthetic, used to restore volume and fullness to the face. These materials are injected directly into the skin to remove wrinkles, depressions, and folds by “plumping” the area around the flaw until it is no longer visible.

Over time, our skin loses subcutaneous fat. The loss of this fat layer means the muscles of the face working under the surface of the skin are more clearly seen, so the lines and wrinkles of the face become more pronounced. Our skin also stretches during our lifetime adding to the loss of volume we see, and sun exposure, lifestyle, and heredity can also play a role in how our face ages.

At Smiles by Design, we work with both Cosmetic Botox and dermal fillers. We offer both products because they are not the same, and perform very different functions when injected into the skin. Botox is mostly used around the eyes and forehead to stop the muscle movements that cause wrinkles. Botox is a natural toxin that paralyzes these muscles in order to stop wrinkle formation, so the injection is actually used to alter the ways muscles work in the areas being treated. Dermal fillers, like Juvederm, work in a totally different manner. They are injected to smooth areas by filling under the skin where the wrinkle or fold is located. Due to their differences, many people will actually use dermal fillers to enhance the Botox treatments they have received.

Dermal fillers are excellent for treating these kinds of issues:

  • Adding volume
  • Smoothing out lines and deep creases
  • Plumping lips
  • Augmenting cheeks
  • Filling out depressions
  • Making indented scars even with skin
  • Fill out gauntness in lower cheek or temple area

If signs of aging are too much for your skincare regimen to hold back then perhaps you should look into what dermal fillers can do to enhance what you are already doing to stay looking and feeling young. Smiles by Design has the experience and expertise to help you maintain that youthful appearance with our dermal fillers for years to come.
