If your face has developed fine lines, sunken cheeks, or thinning lips, there are proven techniques that can help you look more youthful. You can improve the appearance of your face and the volume of your skin with the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers enhance skin volume and improve the appearance of sunken cheeks, thinning lips, fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable materials used to enhance skin volume. Each filler is comprised of a different substance. For example, JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are both made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that contributes to healthy, hydrated, plump, and youthful skin. Another dermal filler called RADIESSE® is comprised of an aqueous solution with suspended hydroxylapatite microspheres that stimulate collagen production to enhance skin thickness. Treatment with fillers involves injecting the filler into the skin. No surgery is required to achieve excellent results with dermal fillers.
How Dermal Fillers Enhance Your Skin
The different types of dermal fillers can enhance your skin in different ways. JUVÉDERM® is an excellent filler for many superficial needs and can improve cheek volume, facial contour, and lines or volume loss around the mouth and nose. Dr. Roussalis also uses JUVÉDERM® for lip augmentation and to enhance the appearance of sagging skin. The composition of hyaluronic acid found in Restylane® is more granular than the hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM®, making Restylane® a more suitable filler for fine lines, wrinkles, and the sensitive skin around the eyes. RADIESSE® can enhance facial volume and penetrates deeper to improve volume in more specific areas. Dr. Roussalis can create a customized treatment plan for your needs and select the dermal filler or combination of fillers that will be best for you. Results from fillers are not permanent but may last up to two years (depending on the filler). With regular treatments, you can experience excellent results and full facial rejuvenation.
