Delivering a wide array of dermal fillers, including Juvederm, Radiesse and Restylane
As our skin ages, the dermis gradually loses its major constituents: collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Collagen acts as the major support protein for our skin, elastin allows our skin to stay firm and resist wrinkles, and hyaluronic acid helps to trap water and add volume and shape to our skin.
Dermal fillers are becoming increasingly popular as a means to help reverse the changes associated with aging. Because the goal is to return the dermis to its original youthful state, dermal fillers can give a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts. Our patients use dermal fillers to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss.
A variety of dermal fillers are available in the United States today. North Idaho Dermatology uses and endorses the hyaluronic acid based fillers Restylane® and Juvederm™, and the calcium hydroxylapatite filler Radiesse®. Your provider can answer all of your questions regarding durations, effectiveness, and complications.
