Dermal Fillers in Tijuana
It is natural for our facial skin and underlying tissue to become loose as we age. The regular loss of subcutaneous fat can cause the lines on our faces to become deeper and more noticeable.
Dermal fillers are gel-like compounds that come in a variety of forms. They may be injected into specific places to fill up minor depressions and smooth wrinkles without requiring surgery. Some can stimulate the body’s natural collagen synthesis in specific locations. Thus, dermal fillers can be utilized to improve the contours of our faces and to plump up thinning lips.
Fillers last six to twelve months, which means that regular treatments are recommended for best results. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Ampudia today!
