As you age, your face unfortunately begins to loose subcutaneous fat. Although the idea of losing fat in and around your face may sound appealing, it’s actually something that can make you appear significantly older. The good news is injectable fillers like Radiesse, Belotero and Juvederm Voluma XC can help add volume to areas of the face where it has diminished.
The plastic surgeons and medical aesthetician at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery are experts in injectable fillers and they provide a wide-variety of injectable and filler products, which can be reviewed here. If you’re considering injectable fillers, meet with our highly qualified, licensed clinical aesthetician for a personalized consultation.
Just as a general overview, dermal fillers can improve the appearance of deep facial folds, wrinkles, and lines and they can also enhance facial structures and/or features like the nose or lips. Have you ever heard of a “non-surgical” nose job? It is a fairly popular solution for those on the fence about receiving a rhinoplasty.
A plastic surgeon or medical aesthetician uses dermal fillers on parts of the nose to temporarily give it a new shape. This allows the patient to see instant nose-shaping results, without going through surgery. However, if the patient in question likes the results and wants to pursue a rhinoplasty surgery, then they can a better idea of what to expect post-procedure.
Dermal fillers are considered quick fixes for a fresh, more youthful appearance. However, some products like Sculptra will produce natural-looking results over an extended period of time. This will let you obtain that “youthful” appearance, without giving yourself away to friends and family. Moreover, three injection sessions can last up to two years, so you’re truly getting your money’s worth with this product.
Radiesse is a popular dermal filler because it can last longer than some of the leading dermal fillers on the market today. Plus, the solution stimulates the production of natural collagen over time, resulting in fuller, more radiant looking skin for up to a year or more. This filler is typically injected around the nasolabial folds (lines around the corners of your mouth) and around the chin.
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that moisturizes while volumizing parts of the skin. It is a great choice for diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well. Most of the products mentioned here and on our Injectables & Fillers page have multiple functions, making them incredibly cost-effective anti-aging solutions.
