Filler’ Up


Between gravity and the natural progression of aging, we can find ourselves running on empty, in our face that is.  As we age, we lose fat padding beneath the skin as well as bone density.  This can cause our face to look deflated or as though it is falling down.  When this happens, the weight of that skin pulls everything else down too.  Eyes look more sunken with dark circles, folds, wrinkles and lines are more pronounced and the dreaded jowls begin to appear.  There are many treatments that can be used in combination to restore a more youthful facial appearance such as neurotoxins, microneedling and Obagi skin care products.  However, there is one sure fire way to restore the structural losses that result from aging...FILLER’ UP.  Using dermal filler is a great way to rebuild the base structure of the face for a younger and more vibrant appearance.  

So, what is dermal filler?  There are many types of dermal filler products.  At skinBe, we use hyaluronic acid dermal filler products.  Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found in every cell in the body.  This substance LOVES water!  Which means that it pulls water to the placement site of filler injections to rebuild structure and fullness.  Side note: results of aesthetic injections are improved when your body is hydrated, so...take advantage of the skinBe dripBar while receiving injection treatments.  The results of dermal filler injections are immediate and can last from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the filler product, product placement and individual product metabolism.

Dermal filler can be used to improve sunken and darkened under eyes, improve facial wrinkles and folds and even to reshape the nose or jaw line.  There are so many uses for dermal filler for rejuvenation, volume replacement and correction and without the added expense, risk or downtime that is associated with surgical cosmetic procedures.  Many people are nervous about filler injections and we have all seen pictures of poorly or overdone filler injection treatments.  However, the goal of dermal filler injections is to make you appear refreshed, NOT “done”. When performed properly, filler injections enhance your natural beauty (and you are BEautiful).  The Master Injectors at skinBe are skilled in cutting edge injection techniques and are passionate about helping you to BE the best you.
