Dermal fillers are injectables used to restore facial volume, rejuvenate the skin and improve overall appearance. As we age, different parts of the face lose shape and fullness—leading to lines. Fillers are used to correct marionette lines, downturns or “parentheses” around the mouth, moderate to deep wrinkles, enhance lips, and counteract sagging. Facial fillers encourage your skin’s own collagen production and they also plump and hydrate where volume has been lost. Our bodies don’t produce as much hyaluronic acid as they used to—dermal fillers are designed to act like the body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid.
We believe in natural-looking, full-volume correction. Results last from 9 months to 2 years depending on the product and location of correction. When you visit Vega Vitality for a complimentary consultation, we will assess your concerns, discuss your available options and create a customized treatment plan that suits your needs.
