Fillers

The aging process runs its course in different ways. Some may notice the appearance of fine lines and deeper creases around the nose, mouth and chin. Others might worry about a loss of youthful volume, resulting in a hollow, haggard look. Dark circles under the eyes, thinning lips and early jowl formation are all unwanted reminders that we aren’t getting any younger.

There are a few reasons why these changes occur to the appearance, but the top culprit is collagen loss. Collagen is a critical protein found in abundance in the dermal structure in our younger years. Over time, our bodies start producing less collagen, which leads to loose skin and the formation of wrinkles. To reverse these changes, we need to restore support to the dermal layers, which is where dermal fillers come in quite handy.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable solutions specifically designed to reverse signs of aging. They can also add subtle boosts of volume to create symmetry and proportion to various features of the face. The procedure is not invasive and will not require any more than a topical numbing cream to complete comfortably. Even the numbing cream is unnecessary for most patients, as the procedure is quick and relatively comfortable. In one short appointment, you can refresh, rejuvenate and enhance your appearance without the need for downtime afterward.

The expert team at Advanced Skin Medspa works with an extensive menu of dermal fillers that allow us to customize your treatment to your precise needs and aesthetic goals. In some cases, a combination of fillers can be used to produce a more dramatic outcome. Meticulous placement of the needle yields natural, beautiful results that can last many months and even years in some cases.

The Juvederm Family

Juvederm features a line of hyaluronic fillers with various consistencies to address a broad range of aging concerns. We offer all the products in the Juvederm line, which include:

Juvederm XC

Primarily used to treat lines and creases around the nose and mouth, this gel is particularly adept at minimizing the appearance of nasolabial folds that extend around the corners of the mouth from the nose. Results typically last up to one year.

Juvederm Vollure XC

The crosslinking technology of this formulation works in the same areas as Juvederm XC, but with results that extend up to 18 months.

Juvederm Voluma XC

Specially designed to restore volume, this product adds fullness and definition to the cheekbones and temples, with improvements lasting up to two years.

Juvederm Ultra XC

This filler is a good option for patients looking to add noticeable fullness to the lips for up to one year.

Juvederm Volbella XC

With a smoother consistency, Volbella is recommended for more subtle lip volume while smoothing away fine vertical lines above the mouth. Results also last about one year with this product.

The Restylane Family

Restylane is another family of fillers containing hyaluronic acid. Like Juvederm, there are a variety of products to choose from within the line:

Restylane

In addition to its use in treating wrinkles around the nose, mouth and chin, Restylane is the right choice for some patients to add volume and fullness to the lips. Results last up to 18 months for some individuals.

Restylane Silk

For more subtle treatment of the lips, as well as the vertical lines that often appear above the mouth, Restylane Silk is often the filler of choice. This ultra-smooth formulation is also an excellent option to treat tear troughs under the eyes that have contributed to a tired, aged appearance.

Restylane Lyft

In addition to offering facial rejuvenation, Restylane Lyft is designed to turn back the clock on the hands. This volumizing treatment can last up to 12 months.

Restylane Refyne

Featuring innovative XpresHAn technology, this formulation works on mild to moderate facial lines without compromising your ability to make natural expressions. Natural improvements last up to 12 months for most patients.

Restylane Defyne

Utilizing the same revolutionary technology as Refyne, this product is designed to soften even deep facial creases around the nose and mouth. Like Refyne, the results are exceptionally natural and last up to 12 months.

Sculptra Overview

Sculptra is a different type of dermal filler. Instead of offering immediate improvement like other products, this formulation works deep into the dermal structure to trigger additional collagen production. As collagen levels increase, the skin becomes smoother with fewer lines and wrinkles. The results may take some time to develop, but they also last longer as most patients enjoy their more youthful appearance for at least two years.

What is a Liquid Facelift?

If you are ready for some significant facial rejuvenation but not prepared to undergo a surgical procedure, a liquid facelift might be the right option for you. This treatment uses a combination of dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers like Botox to fully refresh the face and adjust minor imperfections to create a look you are sure to love. A highly customized procedure, it takes a skilled-injector to perform this treatment and achieve an optimal outcome.

Fillers are a versatile cosmetic treatment that can be used to address a host of concerns without incisions or downtime. If you would like to learn more about your filler options, contact Advanced Skin Medspa today at 845-253-4625.
