Dermal Fillers

The aging process affects our appearances in many ways. Gray hair, wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin all start to appear over time. As we age, our skin’s production of collagen and hyaluronic acid slows. Without these two substances, our skin becomes dull, loose, and saggy. With dermal fillers, we can restore the smooth, full look that is attributed to youth. Dermal fillers are injectable treatments made of hyaluronic acid and collagen to help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to the face. At Essential Dermatology in Natick, MA, Dr. Krathen gives his patients back their youthful look through his dermal filler treatments.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

These minimally invasive treatments offer less downtime than traditional plastic surgery and can achieve immediate results. Dermal fillers help to restore volume in the skin by injecting natural substances and helping the body to produce these once again. The injections will be made at pre-determined and specific points based on Dr. Krathen’s assessment. Dermal filler treatments take approximately 30 to 45 minutes in total. The number of injections made will depend on the treatment area and your goals.

Dermal Fillers Maintenance

Each dermal filler varies slightly and comes with a different timeframe for the length of results. Generally, most dermal fillers last between 6 and 24 months. You can get a maintenance treatment to sustain the results. During a consultation with Dr. Krathen, he will help to recommend the right products and create a personalized treatment plan for you. Dermal fillers can also be done in combination with other plastic surgery methods for enhanced results.
