How Do Soft Tissue Fillers Work?

Beautiful Young Woman with Clean Fresh Skin touch own faceWrinkles and lines on the face can make you appear older than you are. Though there are a number of reasons these lines appear, the good news is that there are minimally invasive options to treat them. If you’re looking to regain a younger-looking face or rejuvenate your skin, Dr. Conrad has multiple dermal filler options for you to consider.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

A dermal filler is an injectable solution used to correct wrinkles, lines, or creases. This treatment can restore facial contours in places where a lack of fat has caused a sunken or flat look, such as your cheeks. Some fillers can even be used to add volume to your lips.

Filler Options

Dr. Conrad’s office offers multiple filler options, each targeting different areas of the face. Prior to your procedure, you will consult with a Certified Nurse Injector to review your treatment goals. She will evaluate your face and skin to determine which filler (or fillers) would be most appropriate for you.

Lip Enhancement

Dr. Conrad uses Restylane-L® and JUVÉDERM® XC dermal filler for lip enhancement procedures. These options are composed of a synthetic form of the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid keeps skin hydrated, giving a youthful look. Lidocaine can be used during your treatment to keep you comfortable.

Line and Wrinkle Reduction

Restylane-L®, Restylane® Lyft, JUVÉDERM® XC, and RADIESSE® are used to reduce wrinkles, lines, and creases in your face. The filler is injected below the targeted area. It fills the space, expanding and plumping the skin to smooth out wrinkles and creases.

Restoring Facial Volume

Sculptra® Aesthetic is designed to restore lost facial volume. With lost volume comes flat cheeks and more pronounced wrinkles. This injectable treatment stimulates collagen production in your face to help restore fullness to your cheeks and in turn, remove wrinkles. This treatment typically requires two to three injections with long-lasting results.

What Can You Expect?

The actual treatment session is very quick, though this depends on how many treatment sites and how many different fillers you are receiving. You may experience some swelling or bruising, but this should pass quickly. Although dermal fillers do not require any downtime, you may want to take it easy for a few days. Fillers are temporary treatments with results lasting anywhere from six months to two years. Dr. Conrad will provide you with more specific information regarding the longevity of results.

lady-getting-botox-cosmeticDid you know there’s proof that beauty treatments can help you feel happier? Many people feel better when they know that they look their best, but beyond anecdotal evidence, scientific research has demonstrated that treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic (a neuromodulator) can reduce depression. Neuromodulators and soft tissue fillers are non-surgical facial injectable treatments that can help you look more youthful, attractive, and happy.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are neuromodulators that can minimize wrinkles. These prescription medicines can be injected into certain areas of the face to treat:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet at the outer edges of the eyes
  • Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Wrinkles at the sides of the nose

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® work by weakening the facial muscles that create expression lines. This helps your face to relax into a more relaxed, affable, and approachable expression. You will still be able to make sad or angry expressions, but after treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®, it’s easier to put on a bright and welcoming smile.

Soft Tissue Fillers

Soft tissue fillers can also minimize facial wrinkles and improve facial fullness. Fillers such as Restylane-L®, Restylane® Lyft, JUVÉDERM® XC, RADIESSE®, and Sculptra® Aesthetic are all offered here at our facility. The injection of soft tissue fillers can fill in volume loss and eliminate wrinkles so that your face appears softer, younger, and more attractive. Fillers can also enhance the size of the lips so that your smile is more inviting.

Non-Surgical Treatments

These neuromodulators and soft tissue fillers are non-surgical treatments that can reduce the signs of aging. After a single treatment session and no downtime, immediately visible results will reveal a more comfortable and rejuvenated appearance. With regular treatments, you can maintain a more pleasant and appealing look with fewer wrinkles, younger-looking skin, and a beautifully confident smile.
