Are Dermal Fillers For Me?

Dermal FillersAs we age, our skin goes through many changes—including a decline in the production of collagen. This fibrous protein helps maintain your skin’s natural elasticity and firmness, so its loss can lead to wrinkles and lines on your complexion. Over time, your body’s natural production of oils also decreases, causing the skin to become drier and fragile.
While aging is a natural process, many women seek for ways to look younger and enhance their appearance through plastic surgery. However, at North Scottsdale Laser and Skincare Clinic, we recommend treatments such as dermal fillers to restore our clients’ natural beauty without the costs and risks associated with invasive cosmetic surgery. Learn more about dermal fillers and whether they are the right anti-aging treatment for you.

How dermal fillers work:

Dermal fillers are injected in small amounts into the desired areas of your complexion and flow easily into your skin—quickly erasing unwanted lines and restoring your youthful complexion. The treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes and recovery time is minimal. Patients can see results immediately and they can last up to two years.

Dermal fillers we use:

At North Scottsdale Laser and Skin Care Clinic, we offer different types of dermal fillers—from temporary to permanent.

  • Juvederm: Ultra & Ultra Plus: from the makers of Botox® Cosmetic and a breakthrough in Hyaluronic dermal fillers! Juvederm is the first smooth-consistency Hyaluronic gel and the only Hyaluronic filler that’s FDA approved to last up to a year.
  • Juvederm Voluma™: The first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years.
  • Restylane: A cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth.
  • Radiesse: This dermal filler is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. It is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure giving you immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and providing long-lasting and beautiful results.
