Revitalize Your Appearance With Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can restore plumpness and the appearance of elasticity to your face, combating the natural effects of aging. If you are unhappy with lines and wrinkles on your face but do not want to consider surgical intervention, dermal fillers may be a more viable option. Talk to Dr. Bruce Watkins in Elkhart, IN, about your goals for a smoother, more volumized face. 

Are Dermal Fillers Right for You?

Because they are minimally invasive and affordable, fillers can be an appropriate alternative to a facelift or similar surgical procedure.

Dr. Watkins offers several brands and types of dermal fillers at his practice, including RestylaneⓇ Lyft, Restylane Silk, and JUVÉDERM. He can help you determine which product will give you the results you want to meet your objectives.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Why would someone choose to receive dermal fillers from a dentist? A few of the most notable reasons include:

  • Understanding of facial contouring: Dentists are trained in the structures of the face and can consequently provide highly precise results.
  • Immediate results: When you leave the office after receiving an injectable such as Restylane Silk, you will typically see an immediate difference. 
  • Natural-looking outcomes: Dermal fillers are injected just below the skin and offer subtle changes. You may hear more compliments about how much younger and more energized you look, but few people will guess that you worked with your dentist to improve your skin.
  • Comfortable surroundings: Dr. Watkins and his team maintain a family-friendly, comfortable atmosphere centered around exceptional patient experiences. When you come for any cosmetic dentistry treatment, you can expect to feel pampered and well-served.

What to Expect During Your Treatment

Receiving dermal fillers at Watkins Family Dentistry is a fast and comfortable process. Your skin will first be prepared for treatment by the dentist and members of our certified team who have undergone American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) training. We will also numb the treatment area to ensure the highest level of comfort during the procedure.

The staff will carefully inject the filler just beneath the skin to correct wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging. Most patients experience few side effects after treatment, other than minor bruising, soreness, swelling, and redness at the injection site. These effects usually fade away within one to two weeks, if not sooner.

Explore Your Dermal Fillers Options

With so many different dermal fillers on the market, you may have trouble choosing the right one. When you sit down with Dr. Watkins at your first consultation about injectables, he will walk you through the differences RestylaneⓇ Lyft, Restylane Silk, and JUVÉDERM so that you can decide which is best for your goals. He may also recommend BOTOX Cosmetic treatments to augment your dermal fillers.
