Best Dermal Fillers in Modesto, CA
Dermal fillers are an appealing option for patients with early to moderate signs of aging.
As we age, sun exposure, gravity and other factors can reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid and collagen in our skin and as a result our faces naturally lose volume and develop deeper creases and folds. This loss of volume also distorts the proportions and symmetry of our face, changing our youthful heart shaped face to an upside-down V or jowled appearance. Dermal fillers can assist in restoring some of that lost volume. Dermal fillers are an injectable material which can be used to fill folds around the mouth, plump the lips, and add volume to other areas of the face.
Juvederm® and similar products restore hyaluronic acid to aging areas of the face. Each Juvederm formulation consists of hyaluronic acid or HA.
Facial fillers consist of a biocompatible material that is strategically injected into the face to replace the volume lost from aging, weight loss, and more. Many different areas of the face are suitable for filler treatments, including:
- Tear troughs (space below the eyes)
- The nasolabial folds (diagonal lines that form from the nose to the mouth)
- Lines parallel to the mouth
- Lips – Known as Lip Plumping or Lip Augmentation, this non-surgical procedure is an effective way to improve the overall look and appearance of the lips. Gifty performs injections into and/ or around the lip to achieve the youthful, natural look you want.
- Jawline-Injectable dermal fillers add volume and symmetry and reshape the jawline-to eliminate excess fat underneath the chin we may recommend adding a non-surgical treatment called Kybella (dissolves submental fat) to your treatment plan.
There are many different fillers available today, we offer:
- Juvederm® Ultra
- Juvederm® Voluma
For a comfortable and virtually painless treatment Gifty mixes these fillers with lidocaine and will also apply a topical numbing agent to the area being treating to further help reduce discomfort.
You can experience an injectable filler treatment with a quick in-office procedure with minimal downtime.
Frequently Asked Questions
Also known as dermal fillers, facial fillers are medical-grade substances injected into your skin to fix the loss of volume over time due to age. Fillers are designed to smooth, firm, and plump facial skin in order to life and rejuvenate your face without the need for surgery.
Our aesthetic staff can perform facial filler injections either as a standalone procedure or in combination with other injection treatments like lip fillers, Botox, or Kybella.
Facial fillers are designed to improve the most visible signs of aging, such as the following:
- Crow?s feet
- Worry lines
- Smile lines
- Hollow cheeks
- Forehead creases
Fillers can also lift skin that is sagging around the jaws or beneath the chin.
As the human body ages, it will produce less of the natural substances that help keep your skin full and smooth. Hyaluronic acid, for example, is one of the main drivers of skin fullness.
Dermal fillers contain a slightly modified form of hyaluronic acid, which allows the fillers to smooth out the wrinkles and creases and restore the volume your skin used to have.
To make injections as comfortable as possible, our team uses fine-gauge needles to perform filler injections. Many of these filters also contain an anesthetic to minimize discomfort, but you may still feel a slight stinging or burning throughout your treatment.
After your treatment, you may experience redness or swelling around the injection site, but these will go away on their own within a day or so.
The amount of time your dermal fillers last ranges depending on the type of filler, the amount used, the area treatment, and other factors. That said, they usually last between six months to two years.
