As we lose facial volume, it is common to develop facial wrinkles, sagging skin, skin folds, and those dark circles under the eyes that make us always look tired, even when we are well rested. The resulting restoration of facial fullness and tone from the use of dermal fillers is immediate and typically lasts one year.
Dr. Brownell often uses dermal fillers in conjunction with Botox. Dermal fillers are not to be confused with BOTOX®, but they work brilliantly together as a team. BOTOX® reduces lines by relaxing the muscles and dermal fillers address and treat volume loss.
This combination of products both relaxes the muscles and decreases the appearance of wrinkles for a more youthful, smoother, well rested and healthier appearance. This appealing and non-invasive cosmetic combination procedure has results that can last up to one year.
WHAT TYPES OF DERMAL FILLERS ARE THERE?

These cosmetic products are all very similar, the primary differences being smoothness and molecule size. Dr. Brownell will fit the right dermal filler for the area of application, and for your individual need.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IMMEDIATELY AFTER MY COSMETIC TREATMENT?
Because dermal fillers replace a volume loss, the technique of application involves a series of injection using a very fine needle. It is reasonable to expect an element of swelling and/or bruising in the area of treatment. This typically lasts three to ten days. Mineral make-up may be used the day after the cosmetic procedure to camouflage any area of bruising.
HOW LONG WILL MY MEDICAL SPA TREATMENT RESULTS LAST?
Dermal fillers are absorbed naturally by the body over time. Results vary but typically last nine months to one year. The amount of time depends on the types of filler and the metabolism of the patient. After the initial dermal filler treatment, subsequent cosmetic treatments are necessary with time for touch ups.
