Injectables and Fillers

As an alternative to looking tired and showing the signs of aging, facial rejuvenation can be an immediate pick-me-up with dermal fillers.  Volume matters in the mid-face to soften the hollowness caused by fat loss with age, and moderate wrinkles and deep lines can be filled to create a smoother appearance. Lip lines referred to as “smoker’s lines” (even if you’ve never smoked) are the result of how the lower face changes with advancing decades. Lips that were once fuller and plumped disappear , temporal areas sink and jowls sag.  Different fillers are can be discussed at your visit for the best results.


THE BENEFITS OF TREATMENT  WITH FACIAL FILLERS

With the age of choice for facial fillers, the best one can be chosen for the intended treatment area and the best longevity at the time of your consultation.

JUVEDERM * VOLUMA * VOLBELLA * RESTYLANE LYFT * RESTYLANE SILK * RESTYLANE REFYNE *RESTYLANE DEFYNE * RADIESSE * BELOTERO * SCULPTRA

Juvederm  is a filler made from hyaluronic acid ( HA), similar to a substance that is naturally found in the skin. It is best used for facial wrinkles and lines, for fuller , more defined lips  and eliminating lip lines, for replacing mid-face volume loss and lifting and contouring the cheek area. The choice of Voluma, Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus or Volbella, will depend on where the correction is needed

Restylane is also an HA filler that is available in different sized particles, designed to reduce the visible folds and wrinkles that occur with aging and to add fullness to the skin for a lasting effect. Restylane SILK and Restylane ReFyne  best treat lips, lines around the mouth and the lower face where a more natural expression is desired while Restylane LYFT and Restylane DeFyne offer a fullness to the face to reduce subtle lines and give the cheeks a lift without an altered appearance

Radiesse is made from a calcium-based product suspended in a gel carrier. It can instantly add volume and support to reduce creases around the nose and mouth. Radiesse is thought to stimulate the body’s own collagen to produce more . As it disappears over time, the natural collagen remains.

Belotero is a concentrated hyaluronic acid . Since its technology has a uniquely soft gel, it is best used around the mouth to correct etched lines and chin wrinkles.

Sculptra is made up of poly-L-lactic acid ( PLA), a substance that helps stimulate and replace lost collagen. With a series of treatments , Sculptra is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body as it rebuilds lost collagen and corrects facial wrinkles and replace fullness.


ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR INJECTABLES & FACIAL FILLERS?

If you have realistic expectations about the outcome of your non-surgical facial treatments, have moderate lines and wrinkles or hollowness of the face, lips that would benefit from some fullness and contouring, and creases around your eyes or sunken temples, most woman and gentlemen are good candidates for injectables and dermal fillers.


WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE

Consider the procedures to be comfortable as well as exciting, as you will have an immediate result after filler treatments! Besides a topical anesthetic that works fairly quickly, most injectables are also blended with Lidocaine to make the procedure tolerable.  Any questions you might have about the treatment will be discussed before the treatment.


RECOVERY

The degree of side effects will vary from person to person based on the type of filler, the number of injections needed and your tendency to bruise.  There is not  necessarily any down-time after the treatment with facial fillers. The redness, swelling or bruising that follows treatment may least 3-10 days.


RESULTS

Unlike Botox, Dysport or Xeomin treatments, the results of injectable facial fillers are  immediate!  Treatments with fillers  often elicit those “WOW” responses and give individuals an encouraging  confidence about keeping an attractive, more youthful look. Most fillers are meant to last , but follow-up treatments help to keep a  renewed appearance.
