Dermal Fillers

The revitalizing medical spa at Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery provides dermal (injectable) fillers, a group of substances used to restore facial contours or reduce the appearance of lines and creases caused by sun damage, heredity and aging. Fillers can plump thin lips, soften facial creases and wrinkles and improve the appearance of recessed scars. Results are generally seen immediately and normal activity can proceed following the injection.

Types of Dermal Fillers We Offer

  • Collagen injections: A natural protein that supports the skin. Results may last two to four months.
  • Hyaluronic acid: A natural substance found in our bodies. Results may last six months or longer.
  • Hydroxylapatite: A mineral-like compound found naturally in human bones. It is the heaviest of facial fillers and is recommended to fill deeper creases such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines and frown lines, as well as to enhance fullness of the cheeks and other facial contours.
  • Human fat: Harvested from your own body, human fat can be re-injected to enhance facial fullness, fill deep creases and build up shallow contours. Fat injection requires a more extensive procedure than other injectable fillers because it uses liposuction techniques to extract the fat prior to injection.
  • Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) fillers: Recommended for the correction of facial wrinkles known as smile lines.
