Injectables Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume in all the right places to smooth out lines and enhance your natural beauty. The aesthetic experts at Genesis Medical use dermal fillers to:
Fill or smooth moderate-to-severe wrinkles and fine lines
Marionette or parentheses lines
Add lost volume
Correct minor asymmetries in the face
Most dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a hydrophilic molecule produced by the body to plump or add volume to the skin. The aesthetic experts also primarily use dermal fillers that contain lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic that helps minimize your discomfort.The specialists at Genesis Medical think dermal fillers are a great noninvasive option for minor aesthetic corrections, whether you’re trying to improve the look of a scar, aging, or other genetic factors.
