Erase wrinkles and improve skin elasticity, strength and firmness with dermal fillers.
The Skin Renewal Suite at Methodist Physicians Clinic Women's Center can perform dermal filler injections to improve your skin’s appearance. Dermal fillers provide natural and instant wrinkle correction by adding volume, augmenting, contouring and stimulating collagen growth. They can last up to one year or longer.
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to soften wrinkles, support areas of volume loss and contour specific facial areas such as:
Nasolabial folds (creases that run from nose to corner of mouth)
Smoker's lip lines
Tear troughs/under eyes
What to expect
Numbing medication and ice may be used to maximize your comfort during the procedure. Most patients report a mild discomfort associated with the needle injections.
You may experience a mild to moderate amount of stinging or aching sensation after the injections.
To promote even correction, the skin renewal specialist will massage the treated area, which may cause a temporary, minimal to moderate amount of redness to your skin.
Bruising and swelling at the site of injection is a common side effect and it is normal to experience some tenderness at the treatment site for a few days.
