Like many of my patients, are you beginning to feel that the years in your life have left their mark a few too many times on your face? Would you like to decrease the smile lines around your mouth, the frown lines across your forehead and the crow’s feet around your eyes? Are you ready to look younger, smoother and firmer?
This might be a very good time to consider dermal fillers, or injectables: non-invasive, non-surgical treatments that help reverse the visible signs of aging and restore volume and fullness to your face.
Dermal fillers are a type of gel-like substance used to add volume, alter the contours of the face and fill in wrinkles. Common areas to inject fillers are in the face, neck and hands, resulting in a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are among the most popular facial procedures I perform because they produce immediate results, very few risks and little recovery time. There are also many other ways I can help you achieve a more beautiful face. To learn more, click here.
What are the main causes of facial wrinkles?
As a person grows older, part of the normal aging process causes the face to lose its subcutaneous fat. This results in the facial muscles being closer to the skin’s surface, which causes smile lines around the mouth, crow’s feet around the eyes, and frown lines across the forehead to become more noticeable. Age and gravity also cause the facial skin to stretch and its natural collagen and elastin to gradually break down, causing additional loss of facial fullness.
Other factors that affect the facial skin’s elasticity and hasten wrinkling:
- sun exposure
- changes in bone density
While some factors such as bone changes can’t be prevented, others such as loss of fat, collagen and elastin can be minimized, and in many cases, reversed.
Dermal fillers can effectively:
- Help reverse early signs of aging
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Fill in shallow contours
- Plump up thin lips
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
- Compliment facial rejuvenation surgery
The beautiful benefits of Juvéderm®
One particular filler which consistently delivers outstanding results for my patients is Juvéderm. Using a very fine needle, I inject it under the skin to achieve natural-looking results that can last up to a year.
There are two types of Juvéderm treatment:
- Juvéderm® XC that smooths away deep lines around your nose and mouth
- Juvéderm Voluma® XC that adds volume lost to aging in the cheek area
How much do dermal fillers cost?
Because every person’s facial features and skin consistency are unique to them, I determine the exact cost of dermal fillers only after I have met with the patient and together, we have decided what type of procedure(s) will achieve the best possible results.
