Fillers are injections of substances which fill out wrinkled or uneven areas of the face and body. They include Juvederm, Collagen, Perlane, Sculptra, Radiesse, Belotero, (a new tiny line filler), and even your own fat taken from another part of your body.
In most patients fillers last for 6 to 18 months depending on factors such as skin structure, lifestyle and age. Treatment is quick and simple with spectacular improvement. Results are clearly visible in all patients within minutes of the treatment, and there is very little if any bruising or “down-time”. The ease of administration and the rapid onset of visible results has led these fillers to rival botox and other neuromodulators as the number one cosmetic procedure in the world.
Many of us notice fine lines developing on the face in our thirties. These can often be the result of muscular activity and loss of facial fat which results in sagging. The lines that form on your face are areas where the body’s own collagen has thinned and broken leaving a depressed line.
The wrinkles around the eye can often be due to muscle activity and may be improved with BOTOX. If the lines are very deep or are due to skin sagging e.g. the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), then a filler may often soften or sometimes even eliminate the line. The filler is injected into the skin itself to plump up the depressed line in the skin. When the lips are injected we place the filler on the inside of the lip to turn it out a little.
Other areas of the body may be injected, although this is “off-label”, and care must be taken to use an experienced professional that has worked with the various fillers in these areas. Dr. Weinstein has been enhancing her patient’s lives with both neuromodulators such as BOTOX and fillers of various types for over a decade.
Radiesse®- 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.1
This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE Volumizing Filler to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
