Sagging skin and wrinkles don't have to make you look older than you feel. Dermal fillers, one of the treatments offered by your East Windsor, NJ, dermatologists at Windsor Dermatology, provide a simple, effective way to improve your appearance.
What fillers do
As you get older, your face loses volume, and your skin starts to sag, causing lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers plump your skin and replace lost volume. Returning volume to its normal level improves sagging and wrinkles and helps you look more youthful.
Fillers are also used in people of all ages who want to improve the shape or size of their lips, fill in hollow areas under the eyes, or accentuate the contours of the face.
Depending on your appearance concerns, your skin doctor may recommend injecting collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid or other types of fillers into your skin.
Dermal filler offer a temporary way to enhance your appearance. Some types of filler last 6 months, while others improve your appearance for 2 years or longer. Scheduling follow-up visits for dermal fillers at the East Windsor, NJ, dermatology office will help you maintain your results.
Ways to enhance your appearance with dermal fillers
Fillers can help you:
- Decrease puffiness and increase volume in the undereye area

- Improve your silhouette
- Soften the nasolabial fold lines between your nose and mouth

Dermal filler treatment
Prior to your treatment, your dermatologist will mark the areas they will be treating with dermal fillers and clean your skin. After your skin is numbed, the fillers will be injected into the precise locations marked on your skin.
Your skin doctor will take a look at your initial results and add more filler if needed to achieve your desired look. Once the local anesthetic wears off, you may notice a little redness, numbness, bruising or mild pain for a few hours or a day or two.
