Dermal Fillers Glyndon, MD

aafe logoWould you like to reduce the common signs of aging and enjoy a more youthful appearance? Dr. Leah Romay has completed training with the Americal Academy of Facial Esthetics for placing dermal filler injections in our Glyndon dentist office. Dermal fillers can restore lost volume in and around the lips, nose, and mouth to improve the texture and tone of the skin.

Dr. Romay understands how the muscles of the face and neck interact and affect the appearance of your smile. She uses her in-depth knowledge of the facial muscles to achieve natural-looking results using dermal fillers. Placing dermal fillers strategically can meet your aesthetic goals and give you that youthful look you desire.

Dermal Fillers: what can they treat?

Dermal fillers are placed in areas of the face to improve the appearance of those fines lines and wrinkles that are often the result of aging. As we age, we lose volume in our skin as collagen production decreases and our skin becomes drier. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring polymer found in the body that retains that plump, healthy appearance by keeping our skin cells hydrated. When injected as part of a dermal filler, HA will smooth out those tiny lines and wrinkles by minimizing the rate of natural evaporation in the skin. It enables your skin to “hold onto” its natural moisture longer, making those natural lines less visible.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Lines around the lips
  • Thin lips
  • Lost lip volume
  • Scars on the face

Dr. Romay will discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals to be sure that dermal fillers are the best solution for your needs. We also offer Botox® Cosmetic injections to treat a range of cosmetic concerns.

Dermal Filler FAQs

How long do dermal fillers last?

Dermal fillers typically last about 6 months, with some patients enjoying more lasting results with certain types of injections. Dr. Romay will provide expected outcomes based on where and how much is being injected to treat your needs and goals. We can provide additional touch-up injections as needed when you visit with us for routine dental care.

Are dermal fillers painful?

Dermal fillers should not cause pain. Placing dermal filler injections will be done with the use of a local anesthetic. If the lips are being treated, you may experience minor swelling immediately after the injections which will dissipate in a few hours.
