What are my options for injectable fillers?

Dermal fillers are an ideal form of treatment to correct fine lines, deeper creases (i.e. the lines that run vertically from the inner cheeks to the corners of the mouth). Thinning lips can be enhanced or plumped up according to individual needs. Dermal fillers are instantaneous in their result and can be done in a lunch hour. Restylane and Juvederm are made up of hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in the human body that helps to keep the skin plump and elastic. With age the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases, resulting in increased lines. Injection of hyaluronic acid creates volume, augmenting the problematic areas for a period of several months.
Other products, such as ArteSense injectables offer more permanent corrections and Dr.Bakala can advise you if you would be a suitable candidate for either of these treatments. Our web-link site offers more information on these products.
