OUR SERVICES – Dermal Fillers

ADD VOLUME AND BOOST COLLAGEN with dermal fillers containing bio-technologically produced hyaluronic acid, the body’s own natural source of volume.

Why Folds and Lines Form

Losing facial volume is a natural part of aging. The cheek area is especially subject to this aging process. With the decrease of both deep fat and supportive connective tissues, cheeks flatten, under-eye bags form, jowls emerge, and marionette lines appear. The lower face begins to appear heavier. The lips also lose volume over time, looking chapped and wrinkled with vertical lines developing in the upper lip area. The result — a tired and aged appearance.

Plastic surgery is an option, especially if facial aging is advanced. Topical serums improve the skin’s surface layer but do not address the deeper structures of the face that have changed with age. Dermal fillers are an effective and affordable option that restore lost tissue volume, thereby supporting underlying facial ligaments and the overlying skin. In the hands of a skilled provider, dermal fillers produce beautifully natural results that rejuvenate the face harmoniously.

What You Can Do

How It Works

Hyaluronic acid (H.A.), a complex sugar molecule found naturally in the connective tissues of the body, is the most common product used as dermal filler. The ability to hold up to a thousand times its weight in water helps hyaluronic acid attract additional volume to tissues. As we age, our body decreases its production of hyaluronic acid, and consequently, supporting tissues lose volume. Injecting H.A. fillers lifts cheeks, plumps lips, and smooths folds around the nose and mouth. The result — a more youthful version of you.

FAQs

Do Dermal Fillers hurt?

All dermal fillers at Aluma contain lidocaine, which numbs the treatment tissues. Before your treatment, lidocaine cream and/or ice is applied to numb the skin and constrict the blood vessels. We recommend taking two 500mg Tylenol capsules 45 minutes before your treatment to ease any anxiety and aid in treatment tolerance.

Overall the discomfort associated with dermal filler injections is minimal and well tolerated by most clients.

After Dermal Fillers, will the results look natural?

At Aluma, our focus is on beautiful, true-to-you, natural-looking results. We work hard to achieve these outcomes through extensive continuous training and close patient follow-up.  

How long with the results of Dermal Fillers last?

Typically dermal fillers are thought to last between six and 18 months. The wide range is due to the different rates individuals metabolize the product and different cross-linking technology used by the pharmaceutical companies.  

 

Interested in Dermal Fillers, what do I do next?

Book a consultation (in person or video) with Dr. Brigham to see if you are a candidate for dermal filler.
