Dermal Fillers

Many of our patients are unhappy with deep-set lines around their mouth and jawline. These deep and often static lines are the result of a natural decrease in collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential in keeping your skin supple, smooth, and lifted. Most of the injectable wrinkle fillers that LSG uses in the office are made from different formulations of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body, which is responsible for keeping our skin plump and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The consistency of wrinkle filler products is determined by the specific cross-linkage of the hyaluronic acid molecules, making some products smooth and malleable and others more firm. Our Nurses will determine the appropriate wrinkle filler to address your individual concerns, often injecting with a soft needle called a cannula to minimize bruising and achieve a natural, youthful result.
