What are dermal fillers?
All fillers used at Heber Davis are “natural”in that they are composed of smooth soft gels that are structurally identical to the padding that occurs naturally in our skin. Over time and in response to life’s stressors, our natural padding deteriorates, causing the skin to sag, form wrinkles and to lose volume. Dermal fillers simply replace what has been lost, naturally and instantly, leaving you looking refreshed and rejuvenated.
Because these dermal fillers are natural gels, they are biocompatible, non permanent, rarely cause reactions and can be easily dissolved if required.
How do dermal fillers enhance the temples?
Loss of volume in the temple areas, at either ends of the forehead, has only relatively recently been identified as an important giveaway of age and health. Temporal hollowness gives the face a skeletal look that not only makes you look older, but also unwell. Loss of volume in the temples is typically seen in individual with thin skin, advanced age and also in younger patients that are very active physically. Runners are especially prone to this phenomenon.
Dermal fillers quickly and easily remedy loss of volume in the temples. The lifting effect is immediate. And as an added bonus, when we add volume to the temple, we also tend to accentuate the brow. As the dermal filler provides additional support structure to the skin overlying the temple, it also slightly “lifts” the ends of the brows, opens the eyes and contributes to an overall impression of rejuvenation of the upper face.
How long will my result last?
