Dermal Fillers

Dermal Filler injections consist of natural substances (hyaluronic acid) like those that exist in your body. Their purpose is to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face, by making skin smoother and improving volume.

The effects of Dermal Fillers are instant and can last for 6 – 9 months.

They are a popular alternative to surgical treatments.

Improve appearance of lips, facial contours and deeper lines with Dermal Filler treatments by B City Clinics.

If you'd like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours, have higher, fuller cheekbones or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, dermal fillers may be the answer. Dermal fillers have been called "liquid facelifts" because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.

Although they can't help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. These treatments aren't permanent, however, and they must be repeated and maintained.

Some dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of botulinum toxin. At B City Clinics we will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.

There is minimal downtime with dermal fillers. You can resume most activities right away. You may experience swelling or a bit of bruising, which should fade within a few days.

In the long term

It's important to realize that dermal fillers are not permanent. Even the semi-permanent variety eventually require re-treatments. The way your face continues to age and how your body handles fillers will determine the timing of repeat treatments.

If you decide not to re-treat, your appearance will return to its original condition. Wrinkles and scars will return, and plumped lips will lose volume.
