Dermal fillers are injectables that restore lost volume, fill facial folds and wrinkles, or improve lips or buttocks. Most facial fillers last six to eighteen months and are formulated with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, hydroxylapatite or poly-L-lactic acid. These dermal fillers replenish the body's supply of hyaluronic acid to minimize signs of aging. When injected into the face, these products add volume and fullness to facial structures and tissues, acting as an inflatable cushion that fills folds, lines and wrinkles.
In addition, the products are hydrophilic, which means that they attract liquid to the surface of the skin, giving it a fresh and supple appearance. Dr. Schwartz administers a multitude of dermal fillers to refine and contour the face. The products have subtle differences and are recommended depending on the individual aesthetic needs and objectives of the patient.
It's not uncommon for Dr. Schwartz to use more than one filler in a patient. For example, if a patient has deflated cheeks, deep nasolabial folds and thin lips, he can use Voluma on the cheeks, Juvederm XC or Vollure on the folds, and Volbella on the lips. BOTOX works by relaxing the muscles under wrinkles and is most often used for crow's feet, the lines of the frown between the eyebrows and the lines of the forehead.
Facial fillers work directly to fill in folds, wrinkles or areas of volume loss to give you the beautiful, smooth skin you want. A BOTOX treatment can last three to four months or longer, depending on how and where it is used, while the effects of facial fillers usually last up to a year. Dermal filler injections are commonly used as a non-surgical option to reshape areas such as the chin, jawline, or nose. This can improve the lateral profile of the patient %26 reduce the appearance of a sagging neck.
Thanks to this, fillers have eliminated the need for surgical procedures to address these common complaints. They can raise sunken scars, re-inflate the hands, illuminate the cavernous area under the eyes, and sharpen the jaws that have softened. The doctors we talked to universally use muscular structural fillers (Radiesse, Juvéderm Ultra, Restylane Lyft) on the hands and jawline. For the clear area under the eyes, injecting a thin layer of more fluid HA that doesn't swell or give off a bluish glow (something known as the Tyndall effect) can lift the skin away from underlying vessels, hiding discoloration and gaps.
Dermal filler injections are FDA-approved and are generally a safe alternative to more invasive surgical treatments. Dermal filler treatments are extremely popular, with more than 1 million men and women undergoing treatment each year. Synthetic gels are the most common facial fillers. There are different brands but they are grouped by the body's natural substance that they mimic - this includes calcium hydroxyapatite and hyaluronic acid - a sugar protein that attracts water.
Some are stiffer and swell the skin more than others. Unlike other fillers, autologous fat injections require surgery because they remove fat from another part of the body. Dermal Filler is a gel-like injectable that instantly restores skin volume and smooths deep lines and facial folds revealing a more youthful appearance. This long-lasting filler can be used to treat deep folds and folds of the face, restore lost facial volume and even increase buttocks when used as buttock injections.
Facial and injectable fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments because they offer amazing results without invasive surgery or downtime. Whether you're interested in tackling facial wrinkles and gaps or you want a non-invasive solution to enhance your lips or buttocks - dermal fillers may be your answer.
