Has your face started to lose the natural fullness it once had? Would you like plump and firm your face while smoothing over fine lines and wrinkles? Dermal Fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse) are an easy way to turn back the clock by restoring fullness and contour to your face. Patients at the Advanced Dermatology Center in Wolcott, CT love the youthful results they’ve gotten with these injectable treatments.
Understanding Dermal Fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse)
Dermal fillers are injectable gels that work to fill and support your face from beneath. Once in place, they plump and smooth the skin, restore volume and contour to the face, and fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
The overall result is a face that is softer and more youthful in appearance. Some fillers, like Sculptra, also stimulate collagen production. Depending on the filler used your results can last anywhere from several months to as long as two years.
What Is Treatment Like?
Dermal filler treatments are nothing to worry about. We’ll start by cleansing the skin in the treatment area, and we may make a few light marks that we’ll use as reference points when performing the injections.
We’ll then inject the gel under your skin, and we may press or massage the area afterward to ensure that the filler is in place. Most patients are surprised at just how quick and easy these injections are, and appointments generally last less than an hour.
What Can Fillers Help With?
Dermal fillers are often used all over the face, where they help restore contour along the jawline and in the cheeks, soften the folds that form on either side of the mouth, fill in hollows under the eyes, and smooth over fine lines and creases.
But the face isn’t the only place fillers are used. Some patients have fillers injected into the backs of their hands or use them to smooth over creepy skin on the arms or around the knees.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse) can be used on all skin types and tones. The best candidates are at least 18 years of age and are concerned about an age-related decline in facial volume.
These are individuals who have noticed that their features are not as defined as they once were, leaving the face with a perpetually tired appearance. The ideal candidate also has skin that is healthy and free of infection and inflammation.
Which Dermal Filler Is Best?
Each of our dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, and Radiesse) are formulated slightly differently. They also offer different types of results. For example, Juvederm and Restylane offer fairly immediate results. Sculptra results tend to develop more slowly but are particularly long-lasting.
After evaluating your skin and talking with you about your cosmetic goals and concerns, we can recommend the right filler for you. If you’re ready to refresh your appearance with an easy, non-invasive injectable treatment, dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, and Radiesse) may be just what you’re looking for.
