HOW DO DERMAL FILLERS WORK?

Many of the wrinkles that come with age are caused by depleted amounts of collagen, a structural protein in the skin that accounts for how smooth, tight, and evenly-textured it is. Dermal fillers help make up for this depletion by adding extra volume and support to places where collagen levels have become particularly low: fine lines and wrinkles. By adding both quick correction and long-term volume to these areas, dermal fillers help promote collagen growth and stability in the long-run. Because most dermal fillers are removed from the body after a period of time, regular injections are necessary to sustain any dramatic results.

At RG Plastic Surgery and Rejuvenation Spa, we offer our clients JUVEDERM®, Restylane®, and BELOTERO BALANCE®.

JUVEDERM®

FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2006, JUVEDERM® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that can provide between 9-12 months of wrinkle correction to crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, marionette lines, and smile lines. Injection sessions typically take no longer than 20 minutes and feature little to no downtime.

The JUVEDERM® line of products is tailored to patient comfort and beautiful results. JUVEDERM® is created using Hylacross technology that makes the gel smoother and more malleable than other dermal fillers. It is also indicated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that helps ease some of the pain and discomfort of injection.

RESTYLANE®

Restylane® is a reputable family of dermal fillers that can treat a wide range of aesthetic concerns. It is comprised of hyaluronic acid, and can be used to correct nasolabial folds, add volume to the lips, and fill in sunken or wrinkled cheeks.

Restylane® injections are fast and easy, usually taking between 15-30 minutes to complete. The amount of time that the results of Restylane® are visible depends on the area being treated. While results usually last between 4-6 months in the nasolabial folds, they can last for over a year in the lips.

BELOTERO BALANCE®

Also comprised of hyaluronic acid, BELOTERO BALANCE®  is used to temporarily smooth out moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the lips, mouth, and nasolabial folds. This treatment has little to no downtime and is clinically proven to be safe and effective.

Among dermal fillers, the results of BELOTERO BALANCE® are particularly natural looking. This is because the product is made using a proprietary Cohesive Polydensified Matrix that produces a gel that is smooth, flexible, and better able to blend into the natural structure of the skin. It also has a thinner consistency than most other dermal fillers, allowing it to effectively fill in smaller fine lines beautifully and precisely.

Each BELOTERO BALANCE® injection sessions typically lasts for no longer than 20 minutes, and produces visible results that last for six months or more.
