Cosmetic dermal fillers are injected into the skin to improve texture, volume and appearance. They can also smooth wrinkles caused by the natural aging process. Although dermal fillers can be used on many parts of the body, they are most often used on the face. Treatment can last anywhere from 4 to 18 months, depending on the type of dermal filler used and the severity of the wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are safe and generally well-tolerated. Be sure to inform your doctor of any and all allergies, especially to lidocaine, before treatment. Side effects, although rare, appear most often at the site of injection and may include:
Juvederm®, approved by the FDA in 2006, is an injectable gel filler made of hylauronic acid, a naturally occurring complex in the body. Aging, combined with sun and other environmental damage, can cause the natural hyaluronic acid to become depleted. This results in sunken skin and facial wrinkles, like those around the nose and mouth (often called parentheses). Juvederm® can help replace lost hylauronic acid and make the skin appear suppler and smoother.
One of the benefits of Juvederm® is that it is infused with lidocaine, which decreases the amount of discomfort during and after the injection. Juvederm® is also known for being smoother than other fillers, such as collagen, and can last up to 9 months.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin's lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product.
But what's unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler.
