  • The Complete Guide to Dermal Filler Injections

    Sold By: MD Spa Shop

    As we grow older, collagen production decreases and our skin begins to sag, create lines from muscle contraction, and show signs of damage from the sun, environment, and our lifestyles. Dermal fillers temporarily reverse the resulting lines by smoothing lines, filling wrinkles, improving volume loss, and correcting facial asymmetries. Cosmetic surgeon Dolores Kent, M.D., demonstrates how to inject dermal fillers for cosmetic treatment of horizontal forehead lines, glabellar frown lines, crow’s feet, tear trough, nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines, marionette lines, lip definition, lip augmentation, chin lines, mentalis, scars, and asymmetry. Dr. Kent also explains product options, dermal depth, contraindications and precautions, and injection guidelines. (2 Hrs. 29 Mins.)
