Dermal Fillers Can Offer a More Youthful Appearance
If you’re interested in skincare and especially anti-aging skincare, you’ve likely heard about dermal fillers. These injectables can effectively address many skin issues, including wrinkles, fine lines, loss of facial volume, skin elasticity, and acne scars. Dermal fillers can also reshape the lips and enhance their volume.
Here at Resurgence Med Spa, we use dermal fillers to help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance produced naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid makes a face appear plump and round. It keeps wrinkles at bay and contributes to an overall youthful look.
However, as you age, the production of hyaluronic acid gradually diminishes. This reduction, combined with less natural collagen creation, leads to hollowness in the face and visible wrinkles.
Injecting dermal fillers into the face restores hyaluronic acid and stimulates collagen production. The fillers reduce wrinkles and restore volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance. We use Restylane and Juvéderm dermal fillers to provide the most effective anti-aging benefits for our clients.
Do Restylane and Juvéderm Treat the Same Issues?
Both Restylane and Juvéderm use hyaluronic acid as their main ingredient, but subtle differences in the formulas allow them to treat different common concerns related to aging.
We offer fillers from Allergan and Galderma, including Juvéderm Ultra and the full range of Restylane products.
What Is Restylane Best for?
Restylane is most effective for adding volume to the cheeks and smoothing lines around the mouth. It is also a popular option for lip augmentation, which involves injecting the filler into certain areas of the lips to achieve a plumper mouth and enlarge thin lips. Types of wrinkles that Restylane can smooth include nasolabial folds and smile lines.
What Areas Is Juvéderm Ultra Best for?
Juvéderm can be used in many of the same places as Restylane, but it is preferred for addressing certain skin issues. This filler is great for filling in pitted areas of the skin that form as a result of cystic acne. It can also treat superficial smile lines around the eyes and double 11s created between the eyebrows.
We also recommend Juvéderm to treat wrinkles like marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and vertical lines that appear above the mouth.
What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
Both Restylane and Juvéderm dermal filler treatments can be performed in less than an hour. In most cases, patients can undergo a filler treatment on their lunch break and return to work or other activities immediately following their procedure. This makes dermal fillers an attractive alternative to other, more invasive treatments for aging.
You’ll notice the benefits from your filler treatment soon after your appointment, with maximum results apparent within a few days. Instead of waiting months to see changes through skin creams or other treatments, you can see your results rapidly appear.
For those who want to reduce the appearance of aging for a special occasion, dermal fillers should be the go-to treatment.
Reduce Acne Scars
In the past, deep chemical peels were the only option to reduce the appearance of acne scars. Dermal fillers have surpassed deep peels as a treatment for deep-seated acne scars.
You’ll be able to eliminate the appearance of acne scars and enjoy a more even skin texture without the long recovery period associated with a peel.
Enhance Your Appearance
Those seeking to reduce the signs of aging can find what they are looking for in dermal fillers. Dermal fillers fill wrinkles, lift areas that show sagging, and enlarge thin lips. They can treat many aging concerns that pop up over time. Depending on the areas treated, you can expect to leave a dermal filler treatment with a more youthful appearance.
While other facial treatments may require significant downtime, that’s not the case with dermal fillers. There is no recovery period associated with injectables. You can immediately return to your workday, family, or other responsibilities following your treatment.
Can Be Combined with Other Treatments
Dermal fillers may not be the best treatment for expression lines on the forehead or between the brows. These types of wrinkles appear as the result of muscles that repeatedly contract.
Botox is usually recommended to smooth forehead lines and lines in the brows. If you notice lines on your forehead that you’d like to smooth, you can combine your dermal filler treatment with Botox for the best results.
What Can I Expect During a Dermal Filler Treatment?
Before undergoing a dermal filler treatment, you’ll meet with one of our skilled team members. We want to provide you with the best results possible, so we’ll take a deep dive into your skin concerns that you seek to treat with dermal fillers.
During your consultation, we’ll ask you about your medical history and any medications you are taking. This helps us ensure that you are a good candidate for dermal fillers.
On the day of your treatment, we’ll thoroughly cleanse your face and other areas where dermal fillers will be injected. Next, we’ll mark the site of your injections according to your treatment needs.
The fillers will be injected into the sites, and you’ll notice an immediate change in wrinkles, acne scars, and other issues we are addressing with Restylane or Juvéderm.
The appointment will last less than an hour. In some cases, you may be finished within 15 minutes. You’ll be able to return to your normal activities immediately afterward.
We’ll provide instructions to care for your skin after your dermal filler treatment. Our Alastin skin care products can be used in conjunction with your treatment to support and enhance the results of your fillers.
Results from Restylane and Juvéderm last between four and six months before a maintenance treatment is required.
