Refreshing Your Appearance
Facial fillers can provide a variety of anti-aging benefits. Patients often turn to dermal fillers to help soften wrinkles and creases, improve facial contours, reduce scarring, or plump up their lips. Each type of filler has unique properties that target specific aesthetic concerns. With these different therapies at their disposal, our doctors can provide a completely individualized treatment that meets your personal aesthetic goals.
JUVÉDERM® XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA)-based filler that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and specially designed to smooth out the lines and creases around your nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® XC can improve the appearance of marionette lines, smile lines, vertical lip lines, and wrinkles extending from the corners of your mouth. Your mouth is one of the first features that people notice when they speak with you. A smile that is framed by smooth, even skin can make a lasting impression and increase your confidence.
Restylane® is another type of HA-based filler that has been formulated to add firmness and volume to your skin. Completely biocompatible and biodegradable, Restylane® has been safely used in the United States for nearly two decades, and for an even longer period of time in Europe. The gel works by attracting and binding moisture within the skin to make it appear fuller and softer. Specifically, Restylane® promotes evenness and suppleness by filling in the space between the elastin fibers and collagen, which are components of the skin that naturally deplete with age. This product can also be used to enhance the contour and plumpness of your lips for a sexier pout.
The Treatment Process
Your dermal filler treatment will be performed by one of our doctors to help ensure the absolute highest-quality results. This quick procedure can easily fit into your busy schedule. In fact, most patients have their therapy performed during their lunch hour, or while they are out running errands.
To begin, the treatment areas may be lightly numbed with a topical gel. Next, your doctor will inject a small amount of the gel into the predetermined treatment areas. Once treatment is complete, usually in just fifteen minutes, you can go back to your usual routine with no downtime. Some patients may experience some minor swelling and bruising, which will resolve within a few days, if not sooner.
