While you may take good care of your body, protect your skin, eat a healthy diet, and exercise regularly, you can’t stop the passage of time. Wrinkles and sunken areas are commons signs of aging that everyone will eventually experience. This loss of volume is due to a reduction in the production of elastin and collagen. These natural substances act as the framework for your face, providing it with a support structure that gives your skin fullness and elasticity.
As time passes, your skin will begin to sag, lines will appear, and you will lose your healthy glow. Fortunately, we have a solution that does not involve an invasive procedure. Dermal fillers can give you the volume that you want, helping you to recapture a more youthful appearance.
How do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers, like Radiesse®, Sculptra®, Belotero®, Juvéderm®, and Voluma®, are injected into the areas of concern on your face. The treatment areas will be prepared with a local anesthetic. Many dermal fillers also include a numbing agent. Whether you are looking for plumper cheeks or you want to improve the appearance of lines around the eyes, nose, and mouth, dermal fillers can help.
The procedure is non-invasive and performed on an outpatient basis. Discomfort is minimal, involving some redness and swelling for a short period. Results are usually immediate, although Sculptra® is designed to enhance the production of collagen in your face. It takes three sessions over the course of a few months and the results are gradual, giving you a natural appearance. Sculptra® can last as long as two years. Most dermal fillers last for up to a year.
Who is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are ideal for anyone who does not want to undergo an involved, invasive form of surgery, but wants to restore facial volume. You should be in good health before undergoing a dermal filler procedure. Dermal fillers are not recommended for anyone with skin conditions that may be aggravated by the procedure. Our medical team will work with you to determine the most effective treatment for your needs.
