As we age, our body's natural collagen production diminishes and we lose much of our subcutaneous fat which supports the structure of our skin. In addition lifestyle factors such as smoking and poor diet, along with environmental stressors such as sun exposure and pollution also take a toll on our skin’s health and vibrancy. 

Dermal Filler is a common aesthetic product that is used to help lift and support the structure of skin helping to minimize wrinkles, restore lost facial volume, and correct facial folds. 

What is Dermal Filler?

Dermal Filler is a cosmetic injectable typically made with hyaluronic acid, which is also naturally produced by the body. When performed properly, by a highly trained and experienced injector, Dermal Filler is a safe anti-aging treatment that can naturally restore a youthful appearance. 

What does Dermal Filler Treat?

Not to be confused with Botox or Dysport, which are neuromodulators used for the specific treatment of wrinkles, Dermal Filler works by restoring lost volume. Depending on the area being treated, your aesthetic injector will recommend the best Dermal Filler product for your specific needs. Dermal Filler is used to plump thin lips and improve lip lines, enhance shallow contours, correct facial folds and lax skin, soften facial wrinkles and creases, improve the appearance of scarring, correct asymmetrical facial features, correct undereye shallowness and dark circles, and more. 

Choosing a Dermal Filler Injector

Choosing a cosmetic injector is an important decision. A good injector has received extensive training on various injection techniques, has a medical background and education, understands facial anatomy, and also has an eye for aesthetics. Dermal Filler should only be administered by a physician or a nurse who regularly inject patients. The Mirabile M.D. nurse injectors have built a reputation of safe, natural results and partner with their patients to achieve each person’s desired outcome. Overseen by the owner and on-site medical director, James Mirabile, M.D., our injection team prides itself on safety and efficacy. Dr. Mirabile hand selects medical professionals who align with his values of patient care, oversees all aspects of the practice, and sets all safety and treatment protocols.
