What are injectable fillers?
Injectable, or dermal, fillers are substances injected into your skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and fill in areas of lost volume. At Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics, you have access to some of the top dermal fillers on the market.
What aging complaints can dermal fillers treat?
Injectable fillers address a number of the common issues that accompany aging. These include:
Dermal fillers soften your look so you appear younger, but don’t make you look unnatural or like you’ve “had work done.” The providers at Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics help you find the right blend of fillers applied in precise quantities.
Dermal fillers are sometimes used along with wrinkle reducers Dysport® and Botox® to give you a comprehensive look.
What injectable fillers are available?
Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics offers a wide variety of injectable fillers including:
Sculptra is made of particles called polylactic acid (PLLA) suspended in water. Injections of Sculptra add volume to your skin to fill in lines or hollow areas. The PLLA offers immediate results but also stimulates your own natural collagen production. With time, the PLLA dissolves, leaving collagen in its place so you get gradual and natural-looking results.
Juvéderm is a line of fillers that contains a hyaluronic acid formulation to restore volume and hydration. Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics offers Juvéderm Ultra XC, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC, and Juvéderm Voluma. The practitioners determine which option is right for you, depending on where you need treatment.
Juvéderm formulas are effective in plumping lips and cheeks as well as reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds, smoker’s lines, and other facial wrinkles.
Belotero is another hyaluronic acid filler but offers a unique structural design. It’s often used for very fine lines under your eyes and in the tear troughs.
Restylane Lyft adds natural-looking volume to your cheeks and to aging hands. It also contains hyaluronic acid to restore your face’s natural plumpness.
Radiesse is a dermal filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). When injected, the CaHA microspheres quickly correct volume and stimulate your body’s own collagen development to maintain these results for the long term.
Over time, the microspheres dissolve and the body metabolizes the CaHA, leaving the improved look created by your natural collagen.
Kybella is injectable, synthetic deoxycholic acid — a bile made by your body that breaks down dietary fat. When injected under your chin, Kybella destroys fat cells that are then resorbed by your body.
