Dermal Fillers are Hyaluronic Acid based injectable products used for cosmetic procedures. Hyaluronic Acids are compounds found naturally in the human body and are therefore safe for human use. Dermal Fillers can be used for a variety of different applications such as adding volume and shape to lips, refilling cheek volume lost due to aging, filling in deep lines and wrinkles and treating tear troughs.
Dermal fillers vary in duration and texture by product. Some fillers are softer, to replicate supple tissue like lips while some may be firmer and more suited to fill deep folds and lines or replicate cheek structure. Some fillers may last up to six months while other fillers can last up to 2 years!
At Bello Medical Aesthetics, we ONLY use authentic Juvederm dermal fillers made by Allergan.
Botox can be used to treat wrinkles on the forehead by injecting various sites along the Frontalis Muscles.
Frown Lines, known also as Eleven lines or 11’s, are vertical lines that develop in the Glabellar Region. They can be treated by injecting botox into the Corrugator Supercilii and Procerus muscles.
Crow’s feet are wrinkles that develops along the outer edge of the eye. They are called Crow’s feet because they resemble the forked pattern found on the feet of birds (shocker!). Botox can be used to treat Crow’s feet by injecting into the Obicularis Oculi Muscle that controls movement around the eye.
Dermal Fillers are very effective at reducing the appearance of folds and lines around and beneath the mouth. Firm, long lasting dermal fillers such as Juverderm Ultra Plus XC are well suited for these purposes as they provide both volume to fill the wrinkle, as well as firmness and longevity to stay in these areas for longer periods of time.
