Wrinkle fillers (or simply fillers) are often utilized to replace lost facial volume. Faces often lack volume for several reasons, but weight loss and age are commonly to blame. The procedure works by injecting the dermal filler beneath the skin to fill the areas that appear sunken or hollow. Fillers are an excellent, minimally invasive option for Gulf Coast region men and women desiring to smooth sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines to create a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can also be added to other cosmetic services to provide the benefits of a traditional facelift without the need for surgery, the presence of scars, and the required recovery that follows. There are a variety of fillers that can help meet the goals and desires of each patient. To learn more about the various options available, such as Restylane®, RHA® Collection, and RADIESSE®, we encourage you to contact Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss & Gulf Coast Aesthetics to request a consultation with Dr. Donald Balder to determine which injectable fillers are suitable for you.
This procedure can be completed quickly in our Gulfport, MS office with minimal risks. Due to the numbing agents, the process is typically only mildly uncomfortable and requires little to no downtime afterward. There may be some swelling and bruising immediately after, but these symptoms should fade within a few days. Results typically last from three months to a full year, depending on the product and the injection placement. To maintain optimal results, Dr. Balder may recommend touch-ups.
