Are Dermal Fillers?
fillers are injectable solutions used to fill in wrinkles and fine
lines or to add volume to the cheeks or lips. Many dermal fillers,
like Belotero, are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs
naturally in the skin. Radiesse can be used on the hands as well as
the face. Bellafill stimulates collagen production and its effects
can last for over a decade.
Is a Chemical Peel?
chemical peel is an outpatient cosmetic treatment used to reduce or
eradicate various skin imperfections like scars, wrinkles, discolored
spots, and large pores. The dermatologist will apply a chemical
called trichloracetic acid to the client’s face. The chemical will
exfoliate the topmost layers of the skin by causing the skin cells to
dry up and peel off. It will take seven to 14 days for the client to
see the full results.

can be used in a variety of treatments. Lasers can stimulate the
production of collagen, a protein that gives the skin its structure
and elasticity and thus reduces wrinkles. Different lasers can target
pigments like melanin or hemoglobin, so they can remove hair, age
spots, spider veins, and other blemishes.
