What are dermal fillers used for?
There are lines and depressions in the face that can not be corrected with Botox and Dysport, such as hollows under the yes, smile lines, and deflated lips and cheeks. Dermal fillers fill those spaces and give you the plump youthful appearance that’s lost with aging. Our focus is to give you the most natural looking, yet subtle enhancement for reversal of signs of aging with dermal fillers. Our focus is to avoid the unnatural overinflated results that some people experience elsewhere.
What’s new in Dermal Fillers?
Today, a new trend of injecting one’s own fat that has been processed with uniform fat particle size, and enriched with your own plasma and growth factors has become popular. It is known as autologous fat grafting.
For smaller volume enhancement or reshaping of the face, there is another solution: the dermal filler that lasts at least 5 years: Bellafill.
Are you tired of repeated dermal filler injections that don’t last long?
Enter Bellafill/ Bellalift, the 5 year filler.
This is the latest addition to our collection of dermal fillers. Bellafill is a third generation dual phased filler which contains 80% Bovine collagen and 20% PMMA microspheres. The results of treatment with Bellafill for volume and shape restoration as well as acne scar enhancement are natural looking, long lasting (at least 5 years), and stimulates your own body’s natural collagen production, caused by the PMMA microparticles. The enhancement is immediately visible and gets even better with time. One may need as few as 1 to as many as 20 syringes of Bellafill to achieve long-lasting results that look natural, depending on the location and the amount of volume loss.
The latest addition to the Juvederm line up in October 2016. This filler is the longest-lasting and most natural looking and feeling filler for the lips. In clinical trials, over 60% of individuals still had their Volbella lasting at 1 year after the injection. Other uses of Volbella include smooth correction of smokers lines, as well as off-label usage for correction of dark circles around the eyes, or hollows under the eyes.
The newest member of the Restylane family. This is a very smooth product for correction of etched in smile lines, smokers lines, and for softening of the lip wrinkles and hydrating them without overtly inflating lips. The results last up to a year.
This is an FDA approved filler, which is very cohesive, and made of dense hyaluronic acid molecules, used for facial volume restoration and lifting. It is primarily used in the check area (that will affect how deep the appearance of the lines around the mouth and nose are). The advantage of this filler is that it’s a one time treatment that lasts 18-24 months. It is well tolerated and potentially reversible if there is a need to remove any excess filler.
Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC: These are very refined hyaluronic acid products that are naturally found in connective tissue, and may outlast Restylane and Perlane for the same indications. The duration of effect can be up to a year.
Belotero: This is a fine filler for correction of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a great filler for superficial etched-in lines.
Radiesse: A very smooth filler with long lasting results, with duration of effect of at least 1 year. Very cost effective for the volume added. This can be used anywhere on the face except for the lips, or hollows under the eyes. Another great usage of this filler is for volume restoration to the back of hands, and the gaunt faces of HIV patients.
