The passage of time can rob our faces of their fullness and glow, and often this may result in a hollow, wrinkled, or sunken look. The benefit of cosmetic fillers is that they can restore volume and suppleness to your face immediately, and without any surgical intervention or difficult recovery. If you have grown disappointed with a lack of fullness in your cheeks, lips, forehead, or eye area and want a more “filled out” and fresh appearance, these simple procedures offer superior results without disrupting your life.
Choices of Cosmetic Fillers
Botox® is a purified protein that gently decreases muscular activity. This nonsurgical treatment can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines between your eyebrows, on your forehead, and around your eyes, lips, nose, and neck. Although the effect eventually eases, it is easy to reproduce on a regular basis, and the benefits associated with it can last as long as you would like the treatments to continue.
Juvederm™ is a long lasting hyaluronic filler, which is designed with what engineers call extensive cross-linking. In plain English, this means that the compound is built to last – it is firm but not hard, inviting to the touch, and strongly resistant to degradation over time. Clients tell me they love Juvederm™ because it feels permanent, organic, and beautiful.
Restylane® is another hyaluronic acid, this time comprised of a clear gel that already exists in the human body. Its organic origins lets Restylane® blend seamlessly with the natural curves of your face, providing a subtle, clean effect wherever it is desired. This cosmetic filler is used throughout many areas of cosmetic surgery, although its most popular use is in fuller lips. Restylane®is biodegradable and completely biocompatible with the natural tissues of your face.
Sculptra™ is what is known as a “poly-l-lactic acid,” meaning it is completely biocompatible and resorbable. Sculptra™ is a volumizer, not a filler, so it is typically used to add volume rather than to fill in sallows and wrinkles. Sculptra™ is long-lasting and safe, as it stimulates your body to produce its own collagen, an effect that can last up to two years.
