Much is being written about hydrating the skin topically to rid the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Methods in the form of strips to wear overnight, facial masks, and night creams rich in “water” actually do work, but not for long. The results are barely going to last through your morning routine and post-workout shower.

Pricing for these little miracles can reach upwards of hundreds of dollars to deliver, yet again, disappointing results.

Consider trading out topical temporary cell hydration for a dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid fillers have been tested and true since 2003! Injectable products that contain synthetic hyaluronic acid gel do smooth out wrinkles and lines by plumping the skin from beneath the top surface. By injecting the gel into the dermal layers of the skin the youthful appearance you are seeking will last well beyond 6 months with even some products lasting up to two years.

While these products are temporary they do give immediate gratification with no downtime. Dermal fillers can be dissolved if the look isn’t what you love; however, we have yet to receive this request when the injection has been performed by one of our physicians.

Combining injectable treatments with physician grade research based skin care, such as SkinMedica® will give the optimal result you desire.

Beware of the “bathroom selfie” boasting terrific results: photos should be taken in a controlled light setting with a professional camera.
