Dermal fillers, also called “wrinkle fillers,” are injectable, soft, gel-like substances. Dermal fillers smooth the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as add volume to your cheeks, lips, and the backs of your hands. They may draw moisture to your treatment area or increase the production of collagen, a skin-supporting protein.
Vintage Wellness offers Juvederm and several other fillers, some of which include:
The filler that’s best for you depends on several factors, such as your skin type, appearance goals, and medical history. Your Vintage Wellness provider makes a recommendation based on your specific situation.
The formulas and optimal uses of dermal fillers vary, and your skin specialist recommends dermal fillers based on your skin type and goals. Here’s a run-down of what you can expect from Juvederm and the other fillers offered at Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics:
All the products in the Juvederm line use hyaluronic acid and are designed to add volume to different parts of your face, including the:
Restylane and its accompanying products use hyaluronic acid filler for the lips and cheeks and to fill fine lines or deep wrinkles. Restylane products are designed to allow your face to be expressive and animated.
Versa is a hyaluronic acid filler specifically formulated to provide results with minimal swelling and is injected with a superfine needle.
Bellafill uses polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) in a collagen gel, rather than hyaluronic acid. PMMA encourages your body to produce collagen, adding volume and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Rather than fading within a few months, your results should continue to improve for years; as many as 83% of women and men report satisfaction five years after treatment.
Radiesse uses a collagen gel to stimulate natural collagen production, but instead of PMMA, it contains calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). Fillers containing CaHA are somewhat thicker than dermal fillers that use PMMA or hyaluronic acid and are more suitable for deeper lines and wrinkles.
If you’re concerned about volume loss, fine lines, or deeper wrinkles, schedule a consultation at Vintage Wellness. Call the office today or go online to book your appointment.
