As we age, our appearance begins to lose some of its natural fullness that gave us our youthful appearance. For many years, methods for maintaining or restoring this plumpness have been an important part of dermatological care. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Sculptra are quick and effective ways of dialing back the clock on the appearance of aging. Dr. Bolante is skilled in applying these treatments in a way that restores the contour and fullness of your face. Find out what Parasol Dermatology can do for you.
Dermal Fillers And How They Help Restore Youthfulness
Juvederm, Restylane and Sculptra are all types of dermal fillers. These injectable gels are formulated to safely and effectively restore fullness and provide support to your features. Once in place, they help to smooth out wrinkles, plump the skin, and restore contours and volume. The result is a softer-looking face that provides a more youthful appearance.
Some fillers, such as Sculptra, are formulated to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is a substance found within our skin that helps maintain its elasticity and tautness. The results of your treatment can last from a few months to two years, depending on the filler used.
Some common questions we receive about dermal fillers include:
- What Are The Treatments Like? What Are The Treatments Like? Receiving dermal fillers is a simple and routine procedure that is nearly painless. When you arrive, the skin of the target area will be cleaned, and a few light marks will be made as reference points. Injections are then made at these points. Sometimes this will be followed by Dr. Bolante pressing or massaging the injection site to ensure the filler is where it needs to be. These appointments generally last less than one hour.
- What Are Fillers Good For? Fillers are used on any part of the face that needs to have its fullness restored and its contours enhanced. These treatments can be used to strengthen the appearance of the jawline, bolster the cheeks or fill in hollows under the eyes. They’re also effective for smoothing creases and lines, and the folds on the sides of the mouth. Some patients have injections made on the back of their hands, in their arms or around the knees.
- Are Dermal Fillers Right For Me? These fillers are appropriate for all skin types, tones and ages over 18. They’re perfect for those who are concerned about a loss of facial volume caused by aging. The loss of definition over time can create a perpetually tired appearance. Those receiving these injections must have healthy skin free from inflammation and infection.
Each variety has its own benefits and is formulated slightly differently. Juvederm, for instance, offers results that are apparent immediately. On the other hand, Sculptra will produce results over time as it rebuilds the presence of collagen. Sculptra also has the benefit of producing long-lasting results.
