Minimize the signs of aging
As we age, our bodies change, wrinkles appear, and the subcutaneous fat that supports our skin is gradually lost. This is completely normal and a part of aging, but that does not mean that we have can’t fight it. Although most fillers are temporary (they eventually get absorbed by the body) they’re also a great solution to increase lost volume. Each type of dermal filler is different in terms of longevity and texture, hence, each one has its unique recommendation. However, they all serve the same purpose – achieve a naturally younger look.
Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, Versa, and Belotero Balance are invaluable in restoring your skin’s resilience, suppleness and youthful glow. They can not only smooth away unwanted wrinkles, but can also help to replenish lost facial volume, thinning lips and sunken cheeks. Additionally, dermal fillers can help to contour the lower face, tightening the jowls and slimming the upper neck.
Cost of treatment
The price of dermal fillers is priced per syringe and not per units, as is the case with neuromodulators. The actual number of syringes required varies depending on the treatment area and the desired outcome.
