Dermal fillers provide a quick, non-surgical, and relatively easy way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and folds on the face as a way to restore your youthful beauty. Gayosos Plastic Surgery offers dermal filler treatments for men and women in St. Petersburg and Tampa looking for a non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation.
The Benefits of Dermal Fillers
As we age, many of us grow unhappy with our facial appearance. Folds and wrinkles begin to show in some places, while other places lose volume, creating a worn, aged appearance, especially in the eye region. Dermal fillers are a way to counteract these effects of aging to help restore the youthful appearance given by smooth facial contours and robust facial volume.
Am I a Good Candidate for Filler Injections?
If you feel facial folds or lost volume in your face makes you look prematurely old or perpetually tired, you may be able to turn back the clock with dermal fillers. To learn whether dermal fillers can help you, please call or email Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso at Gayoso Plastic Surgery today and schedule a consultation. Facial rejuvenation with fillers is performed by Dr. Gayoso and Jessica McCarry, PA-C.
What Dermal Fillers Correct: “Wrinkle Treatment” Using Fillers……
Dermal fillers can work correct two symptoms of facial aging: depressed skin folds (wrinkles) and a loss of volume in the facial area. They can also be used to correct places where lacking volume contributes to an unaesthetic appearance. Dermal fillers are used to:
- Fill hollows under the eyes
- Diminish nasolabial folds (parentheses lines around the mouth)
- Plump small or thin lips
- Accentuate cheek bones
- Augment a small or receding chin
Not all fillers are good for all purposes. Fillers should be considered temporary solutions–treatments will have to be repeated to maintain results.
What Are Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are injectable materials made of a biologically-derived or biocompatible material. At Gayoso Plastic Surgery, Dr. Gayoso and Jessica McCarry PA-C, commonly use two different fillers:
Juvéderm XC® is a smooth gel made from hyaluronic acid, a chemical naturally found in the skin, eyes, joints, and elsewhere. Hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases with age, which contributes to the skin’s difficulty in retaining moisture. Because it is a natural ingredient, it is absorbed fairly quickly by the body. However, it is capable of hold a significant amount of water, so as it is absorbed it uses water molecules to maintain its volume, which helps the filler to have a longer lifespan of effective results. Juvéderm is commonly used for nasolabial folds, hollows under the eyes, and lip augmentation. Its lifespan is 6-9 months, shorter in the lips
Bellafill®is another composite filler. It is made up of polymethylmethacrylate and collagen. You need to have an allergen test before getting Bellafill. It works similar to Radiesse, only instead of having spheres that are absorbed slowly, it has spheres that aren’t absorbed at all. The promise of Bellafill is that it can give potentially permanent correction of facial folds or loss of volume in the face. Bellafill is used in the same places as Radiesse.
Dermal Filler Recovery
The injections process only takes 30 minutes to complete. There is no recovery period or required downtime following your treatment. You should be able to resume all normal activities. There may be some slight swelling and redness around the injection sites but these issues should subside quickly.
The Cost of Dermal Fillers
Cost can vary based on the number of areas treated and the amount of product needed to properly address the aesthetic issues of the patient. Price and payment options can be discussed during your initial consultation at Gayoso Plastic Surgery.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
As a general rule, dermal fillers are very safe. The only complications typically seen are minor swelling, an allergic reaction, or mistakes made by injectors. This makes it very important that you work with an injector who not only has experience with the filler you are using, but also has a good understanding of the facial anatomy and the principles of augmentation for improving facial appearance with dermal fillers.
