For the treatment of eye circles, bags, lip augmentation and facial volume, subdermal fillers may be the secret. There is a significant part of the practice of plastic surgery and cosmetic enhancement that includes non-surgical, facial rejuvenation.

These procedures are known as minimally invasive facial aesthetic procedures. Juvederm®, Voluma®, Restylane®, Restylane Lyft® and Belotero® are all examples of facial fillers. Non-Hyaluronic acids are also examples of subdermal fillers. They are used to enhance different areas on both men and women. They are great for adding a younger, fuller look to the face and specifically around the lips. They work by lifting the face and adding volume to wrinkles and folds.

Common Treatments Include:

  • The folds connecting the nose and corners on the lips (nasolabial folds)
  • Around the cheek bones
  • For lip augmentation
  • On and around the eyelids, tear trough, and for circles under the eyes

There are several types of fillers that can be used and safely injected in order to improve the appearance and look of the face. Different injectables and fillers are used for different reasons and effects. Most are safe and have little to no downtime as long as they are used on appropriate skin types. Dr. Morris likes using injectable fillers to help enhance facial features and improve the patients overall fullness of the face.

Dr. Morris uses subdermal fillers in certain areas of the face and they typically only need a topical anesthetic. Procedures only usually last around 30 minutes and have minimal side-effects. Side effects may include mild swelling, redness, bruising, or irritation and Dr. Morris can reduce the effects of these by using the right fillers on the right patients.

The results or facial fillers are remarkable and offer patients a safe and very effective way to improve the look and feeling of their skin and face. The main benefit of these fillers is they offer a long lasting effect without the risk of permanent fillers. Rarely the side effects and some discoloration may happen, but it is completely reversible. Most side effects disappear within a week.
