Dermal fillers provide an ideal solution for men and women seeking to preserve a youthful aesthetic by enhancing volume and fullness in the face.
Many fillers exist, with the majority of options composed of naturally occurring substances like hyaluronic acid, that provide targeted hydration to achieve a natural-looking volume augmentation. Popular options include: JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Revanesse®. Non-Hyaluronic Acid alternatives such as Sculptra®, a unique filler injection made of a biocompatible synthetic substance poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA)that stimulates collagen production and Radiesse® composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres within a water-based gel are other powerful options for delivering long lasting results without surgery. They can all be used for a variety of cosmetic purposes, including smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing the lips, augmenting facial features, and restoring fullness to areas of the face that have lost volume secondary to aging or massive weight loss.
Ultimately, the best option for a given patient is multifactorial and best established during a proper facial analysis and discussion with the patient regarding aesthetic goals.
The benefit of having two board-certified plastic surgeons with extensive experience with all facial injectables is an immense advantage that our patients can expect as they explore their candidacy for a particular filler (or combination of treatments) to best meet their cosmetic goals.
