Dermal Fillers Baton Rouge

Dermal Fillers Baton Rouge Dermal fillers are prescription formulations placed into the skin at varying depths to fill wrinkles, lift facial features, plump lips, and give the face a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are not a substitute for a surgical face lift for severely wrinkled skin. However, an artistically applied and maintained program of injectables can postpone the need for a facelift indefinitely, with none of the risk or downtime of surgery. Dr. Kurt LeJeune offers dermal fillers at his dental practice in Baton Rouge, LA.

Choosing the right fillers

As we age, facial fat pads diminish. The body produces less collagen and elastin, skin’s fibrous support structure. The skin becomes thinner and sags into static wrinkles. Fillers are a curative, and if started early enough, preventive treatment.

No single product is appropriate for every concern. Dr. LeJeune creates customized injection protocols, utilizing a range of injectables that are:
  • FDA-approved.
  • Nontoxic and non-carcinogenic.
  • Not derived from animal sources, so skin testing is not needed.
  • Non-migratory (they stay where placed).
  • Have a history of safety, with minimal complications.
  • Dissipate over time. Your face continues to evolve, so permanency is not desirable.

What fillers can correct

  • Nasolabial folds – smile lines and parentheses.
  • Downturned corners of the mouth.
  • Marionette lines.
  • Some peri-oral lines.
  • Obstinate forehead lines.
  • Indented scars.
  • Thin lips.
  • Dark triangles between front teeth.
  • Flattened cheeks due to loss of mid face volume.
  • Tear troughs.
  • Pre-jowl sulcus – indentations at the chin.
  • Volume loss at temples, earlobes, and on hands.
Dr. LeJeune starts with a stretch test. If the problem can be alleviated by manual tension, dermal fillers should be a good solution. Results can be seen immediately, and there is essentially no downtime. Periodic re-treatment is key to maintaining your new look.
