Facts to Consider When Considering Dermal Filler

Trust an expert with your face

Why can the satisfaction of treatments be so variable? It’s who is behind your needle.

There are a number of factors that influence success.  Knowledge of the facial anatomy and the intricate web of facial muscles, nerves and blood vessels is critical.  Without a thorough anatomical understanding there are two risks you can face: bad outcomes and complications. There’s no one better than a surgical dermatologist to trust with beautifying your face. 

Don’t look for a product, rather a skilled artist

When you consider dermal fillers for cosmetic enhancement, remember that the gel itself does not provide results. Just like the sports car does not win the race, the driver does.  A great car helps but the skill of the driver is what ultimately provides success.

Comparatively, dermal fillers vary widely in their characteristics. A combination of factors such as gel hardness, gel consistency, concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA), degree of cross-linking (a fancy word for how the HA molecules are linked or bound to one another for durability), and viscosity are taken into consideration when choosing which type of dermal filler is going to provide you with the best results.  This is where a wealth of experience and a keen aesthetic eye comes into play. It is truly an art.
