At DSA Dermatology, Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell offer a myriad of cosmetic dermatology services including dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are injectables that are used in many dermatology offices to help patients reverse the signs of aging. These fillers reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles to make them less noticeable. Dermal fillers may include a variety of brand names but our team can help patients decide the one right for them.
Dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid. This sugar is naturally occurring in the skin and can attract water, thus adding volume wherever it is injected. Dr. Daniel Achtman will inject these ingredients right into the wrinkles and folds of concern to add instant volume. Patients are able to leave the dermatology office with a rejuvenated appearance and enjoy the results for approximately six months. Many patients book their appointments with us and have injections done at the same time as other treatments, maintaining the result they have achieved and therefore slowing down the signs of aging.
Patients will have little to no side effects after injections and may experience temporary redness and occasionally a small bruise. This will fade and patients will be able to enjoy a more youthful appearance almost immediately.
Patients may also utilize Botox or Dysport, both are popular wrinkle relaxers. It can be injected into muscles to reduce their contractions and reduce wrinkles and folds. These injectables can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers for optimum results.
