Dermal Fillers

Cataract & Eye Consultants of Michigan

The normal aging process can lead to loss of facial fat and sagging. This can result in wrinkles and diminished facial features and an overall tired look. Dermal fillers can help by adding volume to desired areas on the face, resulting in an overall lifted look to reduce a drawn and sagging appearance. The added volume helps create subtle enhancements by smoothing lines and creases, and adding volume to improve facial countours, helping to restore a rested look. Dermal fillers can address early signs of aging and can be used on their own, or in complement with Botox.

What is dermal filler?

Injectable gel dermal filler is a medical aesthetic treatment that helps to fill in wrinkles and add volume, resulting in a smoother appearance. The results are subtle, immediate, and long-lasting.

We offer JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® and Belotero® filler collections. These are hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that helps deliver nutrients to the skin.

Common Uses:

  • Adding volume to the cheeks and lips
  • Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles on the face
  • Reducing a sagging or tired appearance caused by age-related changes

Treatment:

Dr. Salter will numb the treatment area with a topical anesthetic or local anesthetic injection prior to injection of the dermal filler. After injection, the filler will be molded under the skin and you will be provided with an ice pack for any swelling. The treatment can take approximately 30-60minutes, and there is minimal recovery time needed. Results can last for up to 6-12 months.Dr. Salter will have you return 3-4weeks after your treatment for a follow-up appointment.
