One of the many non-surgical procedures is our Dermal Fillers. At Dr. Sabini, we use several dermal fillers to temporarily soften facial creases and wrinkles, enhance shallow contours, plump lips and help give your face a more youthful appearance. We understand, that as we age our bodies see a reduction in the amount of hyaluronic acid, causing our skin to lose volume and structure, resulting in those unwanted lines and wrinkles. The types of dermal fillers we use are Restylayne®, Restylayne Silk®, Restylayne Lyft®, Juvederm®XC, and Radiesse®.
Restylayne®, Restylayne Silk®, and Restylayne Lyft®
These dermal fillers can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to several facial wrinkles and folds. These areas include the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth and the corners of the mouth to the chin. These fillers can be used for lip enhancement, as well as the corners of your mouth to “turn that frown upside down”.
Sometimes different fillers are used in combination to achieve the desired results. The treatment can take up to 30 minutes and most fillers are now infused with lidocaine, to make the treatment more comfortable.
Juvederm®XC is a smooth fet filler used to smooth away wrinkles around the mouth and nose. It is available in two forms: Ultra and Ultra Plus.
- Juvederm® Ultra is used to treat more superficial lines
- Juvederm® Ultra Plus is used for those deeper folds or lines where more volume is needed
While Juvederm® is infused with lidocaine to make your treatment more comfortable, you may experience swelling and pinpoint bruising following your treatment.
This is a different type of dermal filler. It is made up of calcium-based microsphere, suspended in a water-based gel (unlike other fillers which are made up of hyaluronic acid). Radiesse® works instantly by adding volume and lift to diminish the signs of aging. What makes this filler so different is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen productions. The production of collagen continues for several months after your initial injection and treatment can last up to a year.
And remember dermal fillers provide immediate results with minimal recovery. So if you are ready to take the next step, book a consultation today with Dr. Sabini to find out which dermal filler would be the best fit for you!
