Through the use of dermal fillers (also commonly known as soft tissue fillers), the doctors at Baywood Clinic are able to help both men and women recontour their face, fill in wrinkles, and give your face a smoother, more youthful look.
Dermal fillers are at the top of the list of most popular cosmetic procedures, as they provide immediate results, with very little risk or recovery time involved. The ability to make controlled, incremental changes to your appearance is also a major selling point among those receiving dermal filler injections.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Most dermal fillers can be broken down into three classifications: collagen-based fillers, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, and calcium hydroxylapatite fillers.

Voluma – Voluma treatments can help turn back the clock on facial aging, by adding natural volume to your cheeks, cheekbones, chin and the smoothing out of nasolabial folds (more commonly referred to as “smile lines”.

Some patients who have received Voluma injections report effects that last anywhere from 18 to 24 months.
Juvederm – Juvederm is a gel filler that is used to quickly eliminate wrinkles around your nose and mouth. With only a single treatment, you’ll get natural-looking results that last up to a year. Juvederm is infused with lidocaine to maximize your comfort during the procedure
