Dermal Fillers: PMMA
Here’s how it works
While not easy for the average patient to pronounce, PMMA, or polymethyl-methacrylate, is a dermal filler that contains tiny microspheres that are suspended in a collagen gel. After injection, your body takes over and produces natural collagen to fill out spaced under your skin.
It’s considered a semi-permanent filler, which is used to treat medium-to-deep wrinkles, furrows and folds in the facial area. Other uses include filling out thin lips and treating pitted scars. The brand that is FDA approved is Artefill.
The main benefit of PMMA injections is that they offer you long-lasting results. It does take a number of injections in order to create the effect you desire.
The costs involved in this procedure include facility fees, medical tests, cost of the PMMA filer, Dr. Jimerson’s fee and any medication or any additional treatment that may be required. Our staff will provide you with a detailed cost estimate for your procedure.
