Dermal Fillers (Juvederm & Bellafill)
You may have heard names like Juvederm, Radisse, Restylane, Scupltra, and Bellafill. What are they and what are they used for? The process of aging is different for everyone, however there is one commonality, the loss of volume in our faces. As we age we begin to decrease volume in our facial fat pads and our skin begins to lose collagen and elasticity. Usually the first line we notice is the deepening of our nasal labial folds (the line that runs from the corner of our nose to the corner of our mouths). The next area is usually the marionette line (from the corners of our mouth to the jawline). These lines develop due to loss of volume in the cheek fat pads and the deficit can be corrected by injecting different dermal fillers. This is why an in-person consultation is so important as it allows us to evaluate your skin elasticity, discuss your goals, and develop a customized treatment plan for you.
