How can dermal fillers improve your appearance?
A thin layer of fat cushions and softens the skin on your face. As the years go by, this fat thins out, which makes lines and wrinkles more prominent. Dermal fillers replace the fat to restore volume and fill in lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can also diminish the appearance of indented scars, add volume to your lips, and enhance shallow contours.
What dermal fillers are available at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates?
Dr. Shahabadi offers a variety of injectable dermal fillers. After examining your skin and learning what results you want to achieve, she may recommend one of these treatments:
- Juvéderm®: Juvéderm is a line of injectable gel fillers made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your skin that holds in moisture, adds volume, and contributes to soft skin. Juvéderm products are used to boost volume in cheeks, enlarge lips, and to smooth moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. The Juvéderm cheek treatment has been proven to last two years when used to improve cheek volume.
- Restylane: This is a line of gel fillers made from hyaluronic acid recommended to smooth facial wrinkles and folds, enhance lips, and add volume to cheeks. One of their innovative products lifts laugh lines while preserving natural facial expression.
- Botox® Cosmetic: Botox is the only treatment currently approved to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. These common lines and wrinkles result from years of using specific muscles. When Botox is injected into muscles, they can’t contract, which diminishes the wrinkles. (see Ref 5, paras 1, 2)
How can Dr. Shahabadi help ensure safe and excellent results?
Dermal fillers are safe and effective, but they must be injected into small, targeted areas of your face — a treatment that should only be performed by a highly qualified dermatologist. Under the capable and experienced hands of Dr. Shahabadi, injectable dermal fillers are precisely delivered to create natural-looking results. If you have any concerns about lines, wrinkles, scars, or the volume of your cheeks and lips, call Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates to schedule a consultation and get answers to your questions.
