At the practice of Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee, patients in the area of Huntington Station, NY have access to surgical solutions for the body. However, if patients are interested in turning back the hands of time on the facial skin, they may be interested in finding out if dermal filler injections are appropriate for their unique needs.
What are dermal fillers?
Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee describes the dermal filler as a solution for fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that use a gel-like substance formulated with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules, adding volume wherever it is injected. By using dermal fillers on folds and wrinkles on the face, our doctor can smooth these lines and help patients erase years from their appearance.
Why choose dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are popular for many reasons. These injections are done quickly and easily in the office, providing a minimally-invasive solution for aging skin. Patients can return to their normal activities the same day, and enjoy their brand new look! Dermal fillers eliminate the need for surgery in patients with mild to moderate skin laxity, and allow changes that can last several months before reinjection is needed. Dermal fillers can also be combined with other injectables available at cosmetic practices such as Botox (neuromodulators) and Sculptra (collagen stimulators). By using various injectables around the facial area, patients can significantly improve their look without ever being touched by a surgeon’s scalpel!
