COSMETIC FILLERS AUSTIN
As we get older, we are faced with the all too common effects of aging including facial wrinkles, crows feet, fine lines, thinning lips, and hollow areas (or fat pockets) under the eyes, as well as a hollowing to the midface, temples and cheeks. Cosmetic fillers to the rescue!
TYPES OF COSMETIC FILLERS
If you think the list of available cosmetic fillers is long, check out the list in Europe! (They have about 125 different kinds!) Choosing a cosmetic filler can be overwhelming, so listen to your injection specialist and they will guide you in the right direction with what will work best for you. Each type or brand of cosmetic filler provides unique benefits which may or may not be appropriate for your individual goals. We will customize an anti-aging treatment just for you.
WHICH HYALURONIC ACID BASED COSMETIC FILLERS DO YOU CARRY?
Allergan’s Juvederm (Voluma, Ultra Plus, Volbela, Vollure) and Galderma’s Restylane (ReFyne, DeFyne, Lyft, Silk)
Juvederm is the most well-known brand of dermal fillers in the world. This family of hyaluronic acid soft tissue fillers is chosen by patients who want to enhance their lip contour, correct facial deflation, reduce undereye bags, and more. Juvederm is a proven line of injectable products that offers natural looking results that can last from a few months to a few years.
Juvederm Vollure has been designed specifically for the treatment of concerns such as nasolabial folds and the parenthesis that form around the mouth. This gel-based dermal filler can last up to 18 months, longer than previous formulations developed for the mid-face area. What separates Vollure from previous dermal fillers is that it is made with Vycross Technology, enhancing contouring while preserving the softness and natural movement of the face.
Juvederm Voluma is a unique dermal filler that is made for the cheek area. This gel-based hyaluronic acid product is more structural and is deposited into deeper layers of the skin. Rather than plumping tissue to smooth lines and creases, Voluma is designed to contour the cheeks and gently lift the tissue of the lower face. The results of Voluma treatment can last up to 2 years.
We also perform rejuvenating treatments with Juvederm Ultra Plus and Volbella. Ultra Plus is a hyaluronic acid product with a variety of uses, including under eye smoothing, subtle cheek enhancement, lip volume enhancement, and more. The results of Ultra Plus injections can last a year or longer. Juvederm Volbella was one of the first soft tissue fillers formulated with an ultra-soft consistency for natural-feeling lip enhancement. The results of Volbella lip injections can last up to 12 months.
Restylane is another product line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. These, too, are formulated for specific uses. Each of the Restylane products infuses the skin with hyaluronic acid, the substance that is needed to quickly and successfully help the skin look healthier, hydrated, and youthful. When injected underneath the skin, Restylane adds volume that can soften lines, lift sagging areas, and add youthful volume where needed. The result is an overall refreshed appearance. Within the line of Restylane fillers, we have
- ReFyne is made with XpresHAn Technology™ to help soften nasolabial folds and marionette lines without diminishing the natural movement of the face. Restylane ReFyne can be used to treat mild to moderate laugh lines.
- DeFyne contains hyaluronic acid crosslinking using XpresHAn technology to provide natural-looking results. Restylane DeFyne can be used to treat moderate to severe laugh lines.
- Lyft is primarily used for contouring and lifting the cheeks and smoothing smile lines. It is also advantageous for correcting the deflation of the backs of the hands.
- Silk is an excellent option for natural-looking lip augmentation. This product is formulated with smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane products, so the lips look and feel soft and smooth.
Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite particles. It is a thicker, biocompatible dermal filler that may be ideal for the treatment of significant volume loss or sagging, crepey skin. Some of the common applications of Radiesse include sunken cheeks or hollowness in the lower face and deep folds around the nose and mouth.
Collagen is a foundational structural protein found in connective tissue. It helps maintain smooth, firm skin. As the production of collagen naturally slows down, we see sagging, fine lines, hollow cheeks, and other problems. Sculptra is different from injectable fillers in that its purpose is to stimulate new collagen formation in a target area. The increase in collagen production can correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds and generally help the skin look firmer and more youthful.
Renuva is an injectable alternative to autologous fat transfer. It works by triggering the body to create more of its own fat in targeted areas. This injectable works by telling your body to grow and create new fact cells that populate in the area injected. Another benefit of this injectable is that there is less post-injection swelling. Also, the technology purportedly eliminates that uncanny effect that can happen when filler sits awkwardly on top of moving facial muscles.
