Entertainment news has it that former Bond girl Halle Berry is starring in the new Steven Spielberg drama series, Extant.

Being Forty-seven today can mean looking and feeling  as young as 30!

That’s right! Facial fillers (or dermal fillers) can take a decade or more off your face without surgery!

Safe and relatively painless, dermal injections are a nonsurgical way to keep your skin looking and feeling as fresh and resilient as it did when you were young. They are one of the fastest, safest ways to restore youthful volume lost to aging.

Injectable fillers also can help prevent additional signs of aging by keeping lines and wrinkles from deepening and becoming permanent.

Keeping It Natural

Smooth gels made from plants, the facial fillers Juvederm® and Restylane®  / Perlane® are similar to a substance known as hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in the body. These fillers can immediately soften lines and wrinkles that show the passing years on your face.

A synthetic and biodegradable substance made from the acids of fruits, Sculptra helps promote the production of collagen — a natural bodily substance that helps keep your skin young and fresh looking. Sculptra also gradually increases the thickness of the skin, helping fill lines and wrinkles and gently boosting the overall volume of the face for a healthy, youthful look. 

Another popular injectable filler, Radiesse® is a calcium-based substance that stimulates collagen production and reduces the appearance of facial folds, lines, creases, and wrinkles. Radiesse is often used to plump cheeks and fill nasolabial folds. It also can be used to help contour the face for a more refined, polished appearance.

Depending on your goals, your plastic surgeon might recommend more than 1 type of filler to ensure the very best possible results for your face.

Safe and FDA-approved, facial fillers provide beautiful, healthy, natural-looking results!

Injectable fillers can reduce the appearance of:

  • Acne scars and pits
  • Cheek and other facial depressions
  • Earlobes that sag and have deep lines
  • Folds such as smile lines, laugh lines, and grooves running from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Hollows under the eyes (tear troughs)
  • Lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin (Marionette lines)
  • Loose skin at the lower jawline (or jowls)
  • Thinning lips and a receding lip line
  • Thinning lips and a receding lip line
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Wrinkles

For a fully refreshed, smooth, and young look and feel to your skin, you may combine dermal fillers with Botox® Cosmetic injections.

Who can benefit from facial injections?

Many people who have dermal fillers are 35 years of age or older. But you can have dermal injections at any age. Even some teens have facial fillers to correct pitting, scarring, and other facial depressions from acne, injuries, and other conditions. Dermal fillers work well in women and men. They are suitable for all skin types.

Facial filler injections are quick!

Given with a very fine needle that causes little or no discomfort, dermal injections take as few as 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Side effects of dermal fillers are mild and temporary, usually lasting no more than a week. Complications with injectable fillers are very rare.

Rapid Recovery and Radiant Results With Dermal Fillers

Results from dermal fillers are immediate! In some cases, results of facial fillers improve over time with continued treatments. In most cases, the effects of dermal fillers last at least 6 months. But some people need fewer treatments over time. Sculptra and Radiesse tend to produce longer-lasting results compared with many other dermal fillers.

Given by the hands of a skilled plastic / cosmetic surgeon who is knowledgeable about facial anatomy, including the structure of the bones, muscles, and underlying tissues, facial fillers are an ideal way to restore and maintain your youthful appearance!
