Find out more about dermal fillers with Dr. Patrick McNamara at The Skin Renewal Center in Montrose, Houston, TX.
What is a dermal filler?
A dermal filler is a cosmetic treatment which plumps certain areas of the facial skin to give it a more youthful appearance. As we age, our collagen production slows, our skin loses its elasticity, and we lose subcutaneous fat. As a consequence of these changes, our skin begins to sag, wrinkle, and crease. A filler plumps the chosen area, tightening the skin on top and filling out the face. Dermal filler procedures take only minutes to perform and can last up to a year or more before requiring a touch-up appointment.
Am I a good candidate for a dermal filler?
A good candidate for dermal fillers is in good general health and has realistic expectations for their results. Patients undergoing dermal filler procedures may have a sunken appearance of their cheeks, deep folds along their mouth, or other areas of the face which they feel require a boost. Additionally, patients should understand that this is a semi-permanent procedure requiring touch-up procedures when the effects begin to fade.
