AGING SKIN - Fillers - Fine Lines & Wrinkles

If you'd like to restore youthful fullness to your face, volume to your lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, fillers may be the answer. Fillers have been called "liquid facelifts" because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.

Although they can't help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. However, these treatments aren't permanent and they must be repeated and maintained.

Some fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of botulinum toxin.

Newport Dermatology and Laser Associates will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime with fillers. You can resume most activities right away.  Remember not to rub the treated area so that the filler material remains undisturbed. You'll likely experience swelling or a bit of bruising, which should fade within a few days.

What are my long-term expectations?

It's important to realize that fillers are not permanent. The way your face continues to age and how your body absorbs fillers will determine the timing of repeat treatments.
