In addition to softening facial features, dermal fillers can be used to restore volumes in areas where they have been lost due to aging or weight loss/gain, for moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds caused by aging or sun damage. It is most effective for people who have lost collagen volume over time.
Dermal filler treatments benefit those who want to improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, restore volume in areas of the face that have been lost due to weight loss or age, and minimize lines around the mouth. Good candidates for dermal fillers include:
- Those with mild to moderate facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the lips), marionette lines (lines under the chin), and thinning lips.
- Those with facial lines or folds that have become more pronounced with natural facial movements, such as frowning.
- Those who have undergone significant weight loss can also lose facial volume and develop depressions in otherwise smooth areas of the face.
Juvederm: Juvederm can be used for the lips to plump out fine lines, fill in lip wrinkles and restore volume lost due to aging or weight loss, as well as for other facial areas such as tear troughs under the eyes or nasolabial folds. The injectable provides the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid and has a smooth consistency giving long-lasting and smooth, naturally youthful-looking results.
Radiesse: Radiesse is a dermal filler that contains calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres suspended in a gel. This popular filler is extensively used in the aesthetic field to correct moderate-to-severe facial lines and folds and replenish lost volume. This filler uniquely provides restoration volume and stimulates the collagen under your skin to provide you with long-lasting and natural-looking results. Restylane: It is a natural cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid molecules already exist in the skin and bind water to collagen, giving the skin its volume and dewiness. Restylane injections work to naturally replace lost volume in the skin while improving the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. They are also used to add volume to small or thin lips.
Because it is a medical procedure performed by a trained medical professional in an approved setting, it is important that patients understand what to expect before undergoing treatment with dermal fillers so they can get the most out of their results. It is important that each patient receives a full-face evaluation by the medical professional before undergoing treatment to ensure they are a good candidate for the procedure and to discuss their goals.
Dermal fillers are injected using very fine gauge needles to predetermined areas of the face. Topical numbing medication is often used prior to dermal filler injections. This omits discomfort during the treatment procedure and results in minimal downtime following treatment.
Immediately after treatment, patients can expect to have redness in the area where dermal fillers were injected. This typically resolves within 1-2 hours after treatment has been completed. Treatment is typically quick and requires little downtime after the procedure. This makes it a popular choice among patients who want to improve their appearance in a minimal amount of time with only one treatment session.
Depending on what dermal filler product is used, results can begin to be seen right away or within a few days and can last up to 6 months or longer.
Trust your aesthetic treatment needs with a skilled medical professional to minimize the risks and get the best outcome.
