Keeping up your appearance becomes harder and harder as you age due to the breakdown of your skin’s elastin and collagen. However, looking younger and feeling great is easier than ever with dermal fillers, available from your dermatologist. Learn more about dermal fillers and what they can do for you with Dr. Gerald Newman at Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery Associates of Annapolis and Bayside Laser and Skin Care Associates in Annapolis, MD.

What is a dermal filler?

A dermal filler is a cosmetic dermatological treatment which plumps areas of the face which have begun to sag. It is an injectable filler that can also add volume to areas to help reduce the appearance of deep facial lines and folds and plump the lips. Dermal fillers are different from Botox in that they have a different chemical makeup and achieve a different objective. Botox freezes the muscles to prevent wrinkles from forming and smooth existing wrinkles while fillers inject volume into the targeted areas.

Can dermal fillers compliment other dermatological procedures?

Dermal fillers work nicely with other procedures offered at Dr. Newman’s office. Procedures to brighten the skin to achieve a more youthful appearance can work in conjunction with dermal fillers to renew your overall appearance. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells which cause your facial skin to appear dull or tired. Your dermatologist can help you determine which cosmetic dermatological procedures are best for you and your skin.
