Dr. Forgosh and his team at Green Hills Dentistry now provide facial fillers as a cosmetic procedure. Their experience with dental care gives them advanced knowledge about the face. As a result, they can offer filler treatments that take your facial structure into account. Facial fillers from Green Hills Dentistry can help you improve your confidence and feel more satisfied with your appearance.
What Are Facial Fillers?
Facial fillers add volume to different parts of the face. As a person ages, their facial tissue can become thinner and form wrinkles. A facial filler injection adds plumpness to aging tissue to restore a youthful appearance. Fillers can have a variety of formulations suited to particular areas of the face.
At Green Hills Dentistry, Dr. Forgosh and his team use the JUVÉDERM® line of products. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance found in the skin that keeps it hydrated and full. When you receive a hyaluronic acid injection, your skin’s ability to maintain a youthful appearance improves. Our fillers also contain lidocaine, which makes the procedure more comfortable.
How Do I Know if I Need Fillers?
If your skin shows signs of aging such as reduced volume or lines, you may benefit from facial filler injections. Dr. Forgosh will help you determine if fillers will make the changes you want. Certain areas of the face will respond to BOTOX® injections instead of fillers. The Green Hills Dentistry Team uses facial fillers for:
- Loss of volume in the cheeks: A filler injection in the cheeks lifts the tissue and promotes a youthful appearance.
- Folds, lines and wrinkles: Wrinkles occur because of increased muscle tone and decreased skin volume. Fillers plump wrinkled skin to soften the appearance of lines.
- Thinning lips or lip lines: Facial fillers can make lips look fuller in patients of any age and smooth lines around the lips.
During a consultation with Dr. Forgosh, you can identify the parts of your face you want to change and find ways to adjust their appearance. He will ask about your medical history and allergies to see which options you can choose.
Benefits of Facial Fillers
Patients who receive filler injections appreciate the benefits this procedure offers. After your appointment, you can expect the results to last for a year or more. Cheek injections have the most lasting effects, with some patients experiencing increased volume for as long as two years. Filler procedures also have a lower cost than plastic surgery and involve less invasive methods.
