If you have a gummy smile, high lip line, an upside-down smile, or a puckered chin, dermal fillers can help you enhance your smile in a non-surgical way. Dermal fillers can smooth and relax your facial appearance to help you show off your best smile.
Made of hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers are smooth and injectable gels that work by adding volume to weak facial features and then stimulating collagen growth. First, the fillers plump and lift your skin to restore any collagen you have lost through aging. They also stimulate your body to start creating natural collagen which can help you restore and maintain your youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive procedure that can have amazing effects on your smile! They’re FDA approved and completely safe. It’s important to know there are a few risks just like any other procedure. The most common side effects include swelling and bruising which usually resolve themselves quickly.
Your dermal fillers results can last anywhere from six months to 18 months.
