Aftercare: Dermal Fillers

For most patients, the benefits of dermal fillers can be enhanced by using a medical-grade skincare system, such as Obagi. Products containing Vitamin-C can strengthen the skin and improve laxity and texture. Additionally, use of Retinol Cream helps rebuild cells in the skin’s epidermis (or top layer). Over time, it can strengthen skin, improving firmness and resiliency.
