Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Artefill and others are smooth substances used to instantly correct wrinkles around your mouth and nose, and to sculpt facial features without surgery. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year or longer.
Many dermal fillers use substances that are naturally absorbed by the body over time. After the original injection, subsequent injections should be considered as touch-ups. In the same way you arrange annual appointments with a dentist to assure the health of your teeth, you may wish to schedule quarterly meetings with your cosmetic nurse to maintain the youthful appearance of your face with dermal fillers.
