Dermal Fillers

A growing number of Bayridge residents have been asking us about the cosmetic benefits of dermal fillers. These fillers are aesthetic medical procedures that are designed specifically for improving and eliminating signs of aging and helping a person look and feel younger. But what areas of the body are affected by these types of treatments?

In this in-depth look at the benefits of dermal fillers, we will examine a few different types and how they improve skin across your body. These benefits will include improvements to your facial area, your lips, and even on the lines of your neck.

Eliminating Fine Lines

Fine lines occur in the skin for a variety of different reasons. Aging is just one influence. However, they can also happen if a person doesn’t carefully take care of their skin or if it suffers from stretch marks after severe weight gain and loss. Fine lines are often very faint but can end up turning into wrinkles if they aren’t taken care of quickly.

The easiest way to get rid of these lines is to use what is known as a neuromodulator. These types of fillers work by directly affecting the nerves and muscles around the line. When injected into the skin, they can eliminate forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines around your lips, and heavy lines around your neck.

Using aesthetic medical procedures like these help freeze the aging process for about six months to a year. While neuromodulators have a strong safety record, it is important to talk to your doctor about their possible side effects before getting this procedure. In this way, you can avoid running into any problems.

Reducing Wrinkle Size

As we age, our skin starts losing the elasticity that helps it look young. When this starts to happen, wrinkles start appearing on the skin. While it is possible to minimize line appearance by taking other steps (such as keeping your skin well-moisturized), wrinkles are an almost inevitable part of the aging process. However, dermal fillers can help improve their aesthetic appearance.

Eliminating wrinkles on your face, lips, and neck requires the use of a variety of different treatment types. While these methods often quite like Botox, they aren’t the same. One of the most popular of these is Juvederm, a filler that is injected directly into the skin near the wrinkles. It can last up to two years when injected into the skin. Other types include Restylane and Perlane, which last about six months to one year.

These dermal fillers differ from Botox because they literally fill in the sagging areas of the skin to eliminate wrinkles. As a result, they are often considered safer than neuromodulators because they don’t affect the nerve or muscle fibers in the face.

Reshaping Your Nose

Surgical nose jobs or rhinoplasty procedures can help reshape a nose after an accident and contribute to improving its aesthetic appearance. However, those who are looking for a non-surgical alternative should consider dermal fillers. This surprisingly effective treatment serves as an instant and non-surgical nose job that will take less than 30 minutes to finish.

Using Restylane, a skilled cosmetic surgeon will fill in hollows, smooth down its bumps, manage scar tissue, elevate your tip, and correct the position of your nose. They will also focus on facial areas around your lips to help make your new nose look well-integrated with the rest of your facial areas. This step is essential for Bayridge residents who want to look years younger.

Another nice thing about this procedure is that it can be used to fix poorly done surgical nose jobs and help you look better after an acute surgical mistake. In fact, it is possible to pair this procedure with surgical work to create the kind of beautiful nose that you’ve wanted for your entire life.

Improving Chest Appearance

For women who like to wear open-top shirts, dermal fillers can be an essential way of improving the appearance of their chest. Wrinkles, fine lines, and other imperfections are common on the upper chest if it is regularly exposed to the environment. For example, a woman who loves sunbathing may end up with severely burned, wrinkles, and scarred skin areas.

Thankfully, fillers are an aesthetic medical procedure that can be used to eliminate the appearance of these fine lines. By applying fillers like Perlane to your chest, you can restore your skin’s beautiful look. Pairing these fillers with collagen injections is often a good idea because it can restore skin elasticity. These medicines include choices such as Radiesse or Sculptra.

Another commonly used item for the chest is Ulthera, a skin-tightening filler that lets surgeons target specific areas of the body. Combining multiple treatments in this way helps manage your skin problems and fully restores your aesthetic appearance.

Softening Your Hand Appearance

For anyone who doesn’t believe that hands are profoundly affected by the aging process, we only have to remind them of the gnarled appearance of Sarah Jessica Parker’s hands. The thing that surprises us about this is that it is entirely possible to soften your hand appearance by using high-quality aesthetic medical procedures.

To soften your hand appearance with dermal fillers, you can use Radiesse. This item is the only filler currently approved by the FDA for the hands. When injected into the skin around your hands, it adds a thick layer of microspheres that improve the aesthetics of your hands. While these items will eventually break down and dissipate in your body, they should last for at least a year or so.

Looking Better With Dermal Injections

These are just a few of the ways that these powerful aesthetic medical procedures can improve your appearance. Make sure to pay attention to the areas that need the most work and focus your procedures here. Typically, the neck, lips, and eyes are among the most popular, though are far from the only facial areas that can benefit from dermal fillers.  If you have any questions or would like a consultation with one of our expert doctors, feel free to contact Artisans of Medicine today!
