When it comes to selecting an anti-aging treatment that quickly and effectively eliminates wrinkles and fine lines, it is hard to argue against the use of Facial Fillers . Cosmetic fillers (like Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane & Radiesse) offer a very effective way to instantly fill and plump the skin, making it smooth and wrinkle-free.
While the results may vary from individual to individual, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane & Radiesse are among the most significant injectable dermal filler treatments available in the health and beauty marketplace today for removing wrinkles and creases in the skin.
‘Fountain of Youth’ Injections
Dermal Fillers are injections that essentially can stop wrinkles where they start. Removing wrinkles from a person’s face can dramatically change a person’s appearance from one of continual anger or sadness to one of youthfulness and happiness.
These fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a natural building block of the skin. They are very soft and gel-like and ideal for plumping lips and filling small lines and areas. The body breaks them down over time and they lose their effectiveness. They can be used anywhere in the face including under the eyes and lips, and are reversible.
Radiesse is a synthetic filler consisting of tiny calcium spheres in a gel base. It has much thicker consistency than the hyaluronic acid fillers. The gel part of Radiesse gives immediate results, but the calcium particles stimulate new collagen production by the skin! So Radiesse is better for deeper lines and heavier volume restoration. It cannot be used in the lips.
What Can I Expect Before and After a Dermal Filler Procedure?
We will prep your skin with topical anesthetic, ice and alcohol. We will then use small needles to make several injections in the desired areas. We have new techniques using blunt microcannulas that can minimize the number of needle sticks needed. Most of the fillers now have lidocaine included in the filler, so as we inject you are being numbed at the same time! Afterwards, you will experience swelling and occasional bruising. These side effects resolve in a few days Most fillers can last from 6 months to more than a year. Our experience is that the more often you maintain them, the less you will need to redo them. In fact studies have shown that regular facial filler use causes formation of new collagen, the building block of skin!
What are Dermal Fillers Cost?
Facial fillers are priced per syringe. It is a fixed price and includes the expert injection of the filler. Fillers are all about volume, so most patients will require at least 2 syringes to get satisfactory results. The good thing is that we have many specials and discounts to get the amount of filler you need, within your budget.
Cheek Fillers and Under the Eye Fillers
Our philosophy regarding dermal fillers has changed significantly over the years. Once relegated to just filling smile lines and other wrinkles, the concept of facial volume restoration has evolved. We now know the loss of facial volume in the cheeks, temples, etc., contributes more to the aged look than lines and wrinkles. So we now focus on restoring youthful facial volume by placing fillers under the eyes, cheeks and lips. The new Juvederm Voluma was developed specifically as a cheek filler and offers superior results and longevity.
