What is a wellness routine?

A wellness routine is a detailed plan for how to have a healthy lifestyle. It helps you develop good habits that take care of your body and your mind. A wellness routine usually incorporates the following:

Looking good is an important part of feeling good. Dermal filler treatments support you in feeling beautiful, attractive, and confident.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are substances that are injected into your skin that cause wrinkles to disappear, restoring your skin to a firm, youthful looking state. Dermal filler treatments are performed in our office in a few short visits. You don’t need to stay in the hospital or run the risk of surgery, and you see results immediately.

A number of substances can be used as dermal fillers. Your doctor reviews your medical history along with any allergies you have, and talks with you about your beauty goals to determine the right one for you. 

What are the types of dermal fillers?

There are many types of dermal fillers, and they fall into a few main categories in terms of chemical makeup. These include:

Although these have different chemical compositions, they all work similarly. Each one has certain advantages and disadvantages depending on your particular history and preferences. Don’t worry, we help you figure out which one works best for you. 

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers are injected into your skin and work by filling in your lines and wrinkles by plumping up your skin. Most dermal fillers also encourage your body to produce collagen. 

Collagen is the protein in your skin that’s responsible for its elasticity and fullness. As you age, your body produces less collagen, which is the primary reason your skin loosens and sags, forming wrinkles and lines. Through a chemical reaction, dermal fillers prompt your body to produce more collagen, further smoothing your lines and wrinkles. 

A wellness routine is a great way to achieve your optimal health by ensuring that you develop and commit to habits that support your mental and physical well-being. Dermal filler treatments are easy to fit into your wellness routine, and can help you look and feel youthful, vibrant and confident.
