Dermal Fillers are a Great Non-surgical Option for Stunning Results
If you’re looking for simple, less invasive procedures that can create life changing results, dermal fillers can be a great option. Fillers are a gel-like substance that are injected into and under the skin. This reshapes the skin’s surface and adds volume. The most popular dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that already exists in the skin and connective tissue of all people. This makes HA fillers (ex. JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) perfect for beautiful and natural looking results.
Other types of fillers are also available for various indications. These include calcium hydroxylapatite(CHA) (ex. RADIESSE®) which is a substance naturally found in our bones and poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra®) which stimulates the production of our own collagen. With all fillers, it is important to seek treatment from a board-certified surgeon like Dr. Stallworth who can help to ensure your safety and provide quality results with the latest products and techniques.
How can you use fillers?
1. Wrinkles and Facial Rejuvenation
With age, our faces naturally lose volume. This results in the accumulation of hollows and shadows, wrinkles, fine lines, and general loss of skin support. One predominant use of fillers is for volume restoration to certain areas of the face, restoring a smooth and youthful appearance to our skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be utilized under the eyes, around the mouth, and in lips and wrinkles to soften skin contours. Thicker forms can be used for volume restoration in the cheeks and temples as well. Fillers even out skin surfaces, filling in fine lines and wrinkles as well as evening out your facial features.
2. Acne Scars
Acne scars can be downright annoying and difficult to cover up with makeup. Luckily, dermal fillers are a great solution! Hyaluronic acid fillers can help fill focal areas of acne scarring, and collagen promoting products like Sculptra® can help restore volume below the skin surface. The latter provides greater skin support yielding revitalized skin surfaces that are softer, more supple and radiant.
3. Non-surgical Rhinoplasty
Using fillers to even out the appearance of the nose can produce some shocking results. This procedure has gained popularity on social media and is often referred to as “liquid rhinoplasty”. A liquid rhinoplasty can adjust the appearance of the bridge of the nose in as little as 20 minutes.
4. Lip Augmentation
HA fillers are a beautiful option for creating the perfect pair of luscious lips. Because HA is naturally found in the skin, it is ideal for adding volume that looks and feels natural. Board certified surgeons like Dr. Stallworth can work with you to determine a plan for your pout.
5. Aging Hands
Yes! You can restore volume to aging hands, too! In this way, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, along with tendons and superficial blood vessels can all be improved to yield a more youthful hand appearance. If you dislike the appearance of your hands over time, HA and CHA fillers work perfectly with the skin tension of the area to restore smooth, long-lasting results.
