Posted September 23, 2019 in Facial Fillers
Over time, imperfections like wrinkles, creases, and fine lines can leave you with an aged facial appearance.
Factors like genetics, lifestyle, and sun damage can also impact the quality of the collagen and elastin in your skin, leaving you with a facial appearance that looks tired and worn out.
Many patients looking to erase years off their appearance without having to go under the knife often choose a minimally invasive approach like injectable facial fillers. Facial fillers can rejuvenate your face to create a more youthful and attractive aesthetic.
Knowing which type of filler and the effects it can have on the area you wish to treat can bring you one step closer to achieving your cosmetic goal.
What Are Facial Fillers?
Facial fillers, also known as dermal fillers, can reduce visible signs of aging to enhance your overall face without the need for major surgery.
When injected, the solution fills the soft tissue of the underlayer of your skin to produce a youthful and beautiful appearance. Dr. Ghere will safely inject all fillers to ensure they highlight your natural contours.
Dr. Ghere uses mostly hyaluronic acid-based fillers because this substance is naturally present in the skin but decreases in quantity over time.
Our practice stocks the most current fillers like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, RADIESSE®, BELOTERO BALANCE®, and Sculptra® Aesthetic to improve a patient’s aging or tired appearance.
What Imperfections Can Fillers Correct?
Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Hyaluronic acid fillers like JUVÉDERM® XC and BELOTERO BALANCE® are known to smooth and fill moderate to severe wrinkles between the nose and mouth. The results of JUVÉDERM® XC and BELOTERO BALANCE® injections last approximately six months to one year.
Small, Thin Lips
Many patients who have small or thinning lips desire volume and shape. Depending on your personal preferences, fillers like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC offer results that range from soft and natural to dramatic to provide you with the lips you desire.
Losing facial fat can cause your cheeks to appear hollowed or aged. Distributing fat throughout the face with the use of either RADIESSE® or Sculptra® Aesthetic can create a vibrant and plump appearance.
