Am I A Good Candidate For Facial (Dermal) Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a popular method people of all ages use to eliminate wrinkles, enhance lips, fix minor nose deformities, or enhance a receding chin. These dermal fillers are also used to treat other signs of premature aging.

In the past, it was primarily people in their 40s and older that used dermal fillers to get a more youthful appearance. These days people of all ages are benefitting from the use of these versatile products as an alternative to surgical face lifts. But a common question that’s often raised is just who are good candidates for using dermal fillers.

Get a Smooth, Youthful Look

Dr. Robert M. Schwarcz, FACS, who has clinics in New York City and Scarsdale, has had great success helping people of all ages replace soft tissue volume loss, eliminate wrinkles and Crow’s feet, enhance lips, and make Smoker’s lines and deep lines between the nose and the mouth disappear.

The procedures he uses help the dermis regain a more youthful look while retaining their natural appearance. While the procedure can raise scare depressions and make the skin look smoother, he recommends people with acne and other skin conditions address those first.

Enhance Aging Skin

As people age, their skin gradually loses elastin, subcutaneous fat, collagen, hyaluronic acid and other major constituents. This can cause the skin to sag, wrinkle, and lose volume and shape. Dermal fillers can address these issues.

Plus they can also be used to soften facial creases, enhance shallow contours, correct minor nose deformities, remove smile lines, and produce a sexier pout. However, you should consult a qualified cosmetic practitioner to find out what type of dermal filler may work best for you.

Safe, Fast, and Affordable

Using dermal fillers is a minimally invasive procedure which addresses fine lines, loss of facial volume and other issues caused by heredity, excessive sun exposure, and lifestyle choices.

It can restore fullness and volume and help diminish unsightly facial lines. The process is safe, fast, painless, and effective.

However, it may not be right for pregnant or breast feeding women or people with rheumatoid arthritis, auto-immune disease, or other conditions.

While it can be used for people of all ages, speak to your physician to ensure you’re not allergic to the components which are commonly used.

Contact Dr. Robert M. Schwarcz to schedule an appointment and find out if dermal filler treatment is right for you.
