Dermal fillers and injectables can provide you with a minimally invasive, low risk way to improve aged and worn facial skin in order to recapture your youthful vitality. Fillers are applied to regions of your face that have lost volume due to aging. They are an excellent option to repair wrinkles, lines, and scars.
Fillers can also be used to augment your facial features. Many patients seeking fuller lips, cheeks, and chins turn to fillers to accomplish their cosmetic goals. When using fillers for facial enhancement, it is important to work with a cosmetic surgeon with a tasteful eye for aesthetics. Dr. Peña always strives to achieve a natural-looking result so that you will not appear “over injected.”
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved several filler products to be used for facial enhancement purposes. Each product is slightly different and will yield unique results. Dr. Peña can discuss the differences in the various fillers with you so that you choose the appropriate one to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. In certain situations, Dr. Peña may choose to combine several fillers for maximum effectiveness.
Belotero Balance is a Hyaluronic Acid formulated to treat extra fine lines like smokers lines around the lips. It can also be used to treat laugh lines and crows feet.
RADIESSE® provides you with an excellent option for filling in lines and wrinkles around your:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
RADIESSE® is a calcium hydroxyapatite-based substance. It is a synthetic filler and therefore reduces your risk of infection. RADIESSE® can also stimulate natural collagen growth, providing you with even better results.
Restylane® and Perlane
Restylane® and Perlane are natural fillers made out of non-animal based hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule present in your skin. These fillers are ideal for restoring skin volume to wrinkled areas, reshaping facial contours, and enhancing your lips. Restylane® and Perlane are frequently used to treat wrinkles and enhance regions around your:
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Marionette lines
- Jaw line
Restylane® and Perlane provide patients with very natural looking results. Since these fillers are not made from animal products, there is very little risk of infection or allergic reaction to your treatment.
Juvederm is an ideal option to repair damage caused by:
- Deep facial wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Lip Augmentation
Juvederm is also an effective treatment for enhancing your lips. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid. Over time, your skin produces less hyaluronic acid, resulting in dry, wrinkled skin. Juvederm helps replace some of the hyaluronic acid that your skin is no longer naturally producing.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is unique among dermal fillers in its ability to address age-related volume loss in the mid-face. To give optimal lift to the md-face, this hyaluronic acid filler is injected deep into the subcutaneous or supraperiosteal tissue. Which placement can best meet your specific needs will be carefully planned by Dr. Peña using the advanced Vectra 3D imaging system.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC has been shown to produce immediate results and requires little to no downtime. What’s more, a single JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC treatment can provide a fuller and more youthful appearance for up to two years.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is used to repair regions where fat loss underneath the skin is experienced. The primary material in Sculptra® Aesthetic is poly-L-lactic acid. It thickens your skin in order to provide you with a more youthful, supple face. You may require several treatments before you achieve maximum results.
