How Do Facial Fillers Work?
There are truly some remarkable benefits when it comes to facial fillers. These injectable fillers can restore skin and help alleviate signs of aging, with very little maintenance required. While there are varying levels of permanence to the different procedures offered today, we’re confident we can find the best facial filler for you.
How exactly do facial fillers work?
As we mentioned earlier, facial fillers are injectable treatments introduced into the facial skin to reverse signs of aging and restore wrinkles to give a smoother, renewed appearance. With time and age, the buccal fat pad on your cheeks begins to thin out and causes the skin to slouch more and more. Facial filler injections will lift the face back up, which in turn will reshape the skin to be smooth and toned again. Unlike Botox®, which merely relaxes the muscle tissue under a wrinkle, injectable fillers fill lines and creases with one of a selection of different substances, erasing distressed spots rapidly.
What types facial fillers do we offer?
Restylane® is a new type of gel product that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that is responsible for cell creation and migration. It is injected into troubled, aging locations on the facial skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works by blending your body’s natural facial skin components to restore it to its original tone. Results may be seen for 6 to 9 months after treatment. Additionally, we currently offer 3 types of specialized Restylane® procedures:
Restylane® Refyne – is designed to help reduce skin folds, known as laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines), around your mouth. This product is designed with XpresHAn Technology and works perfectly to moderate your smile as desired.
Restylane® Silk – is designed to treat your lips. A great number of our clients want smooth, subtle lips, and this new product delivers that with natural, yet stunning results.
Restylane® Lyft – is a product that, in addition to removing lines and wrinkles, will also give your cheeks an attractive lift.
Juvederm® is a versatile injection that can reduce fine lines, wrinkles and facial scars (such as acne). Juvederm is noted for being able to restore a youthful and more round shape to the face. The procedure only takes minutes, and the results are long-lasting. We currently offer 3 types of Juvederm® treatment:
Juvederm® Ultra XC is softer than Juvederm® Ultra Plus, but the effects do not last as long (4-6 months)
Juvederm Ultra Plus® XC can reduce lines and give a more natural, fuller look without requiring surgery. Results can last 6-9 months.
Juvederm VOLUMA® XC enhances volume to cheeks and nasolabial folds to smooth the skin better than other injectable fillers. It is also the first filler to enhance volume instantly and its effects can last up to 24 months. It also contains lidocaine to reduce discomfort during the injection process and is less likely to cause bruising.
At your consultation, Dr. Conde may recommend a single or combination of fillers to achieve your cosmetic goals.
