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.
Allofill is a cosmetic procedure that is injected under your skin and immediately will fill any soft tissues or defects caused by fat loss. This product will work along with your body, giving you a natural tissue scaffold, which later will be populated with your own cells and blood vessels. Since your body will go under natural healing process, Allofill will adapt into normal tissue thanks to your body.
Belotero Balance is an injectable filler treatment that helps treat moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles. This treatment is recommendable for patients who want to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Also, the best of Belotero is that, as well as other cosmetic products, it’s proven to be safe and effective.
Dysport is an injection that works on the improvement of moderate to severe glabellar lines or frown lines around the eyebrows. Although it can help any one, it is only recommended for adults less than 65 years of age. This product will reduce frown lines and will not affect your facial expressions (“frozen look”).
Xeomin is an injection that is applied on muscles to treat many types of discomforts such as increase in stiffness, abnormal head positions and neck pain and rare spasms on the eyelids. Doctors recommend that only adults get this treatment done since it has not been proven that is safe and effective on children.
