Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and other tissues of the human body. It helps to keep these areas strong, resilient, and supported. However, with age, production of hyaluronic acid slows down, which contributes to sagging and wrinkles. Because it occurs naturally, hyaluronic acid is a wonderful, well-tolerated ingredient for injectable fillers. Dr. Kenkel offers the following HA-based products:
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
- JUVÉDERM VOLLURE
- Restylane® Lyft
- Restylane® Silk
- RESTYLANE DEFYNE®
- RESTYLANE REFYNE
What can fillers improve?
Although these fillers share an active ingredient, there are differences between them that may make them better suited to certain patients and certain treatment areas. During your consultation, Dr. Kenkel carefully examines your areas of concern. You work together to determine the options best for you. These products can be used to treat many common concerns, including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Forehead lines
- Cheek lines
- Lost volume in the cheeks
- Insufficient volume in the lips
- Temporal hollows
- Lack of definition in the jawline or chin
How is the treatment performed?
Dr. Kenkel performs dermal filler injections using a fine needle. Treatment is typically quite comfortable and brief, with most patients in and out of the office in less than an hour. Following your treatment, you may return to your regular activities immediately, and with fillers, your results are instantly visible. Although results are temporary, they can last for several months and even more than a year depending on the filler and area treated. Dr. Kenkel advises you on what you can expect.
What is lip augmentation?
Dr. Kenkel performs lip augmentation using dermal fillers to make the lips more attractive by plumping and defining them. Aging, heredity and lifestyle factors such as smoking all may contribute to decreased lip fullness and wrinkling. Lip augmentation at his Dallas practice can smooth out the fine lines that go from the lip to the surrounding skin and can plump-up and accentuate the lips.
How much do fillers cost?
Because of the varied needs of each patient, it's difficult to offer a quote for injectables over the Internet. The cost of your procedure is dependent on how many areas you wish to treat, as well as which products you choose. We offer you a written quote during your consultation.
