At Artisan Dental, we understand that looking and feeling your best can impact your confidence, health, happiness, and personal well-being. Dermal fillers can smooth facial wrinkles, augment facial features, and restore volume loss to certain areas of your face. They can reverse the process of aging and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. In more ways than one, they may be a great option to enhance your smile!
Dentists are facial specialists. They have years of extensive training on oral and facial anatomy and they have an intimate knowledge of the nerves, blood vessels, and muscles of the face. In fact, dentists have more training on the facial muscle dynamics than most other injectors/dermal filler providers.
Dentists are also well-equipped to deliver dermal filler injections because of the experience they have routinely injecting anesthetics. They have the training and experience to allow for quick, comfortable, and relatively painless treatments. While most other dermal filler providers use only topical anesthetics, Dr. Rehermann can offer local anesthesia to minimize any patient discomfort.
Dr. Rehermann is very passionate about this field and has completed advanced specialized training in dermal fillers from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics. With the combination of his training in both dentistry and facial esthetics, he has developed the skills to administer your injectables to achieve the most balanced and natural results. He would love to see you for a free consultation!
Lips: Lips are one of the most popular areas of face for treatment. Lip filler can add volume, definition, hydration, and make a big impact your smile!
Cheeks: As we age, we tend to lose volume most noticeably in our cheeks. Cheek filler can lift, contour, restore volume loss and minimize jowling.
Nasolabial folds/Marionette lines: Filler can soften any lines and creases around your mouth and reverse the aging process.
Chin/Jawline: The lower third of the face is key to overall facial balance. Filler can correct a deficient chin or jawline and improve the overall shape of your face.
