Aging skin can be embarrassing and make you look older than you feel, but it shouldn’t have to.

Fillers Q & A

 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a type of injectable cosmetic treatment to combat common signs of age. Lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin are often the result of lost facial volume and subcutaneous fat. Fillers replace lost volume to lift and firm skin.

Many fillers use hyaluronic acid to add volume below the surface of the skin to improve your appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that gives skin volume and helps it retain moisture. When injected into the skin, it binds with water to fill in lines, smooth skin, or plump lips. 

Dr. Agha of Advanced Dermatology regularly recommends Restylane® to people looking to restore a youthful look and boost their confidence. Restylane is a brand of hyaluronic acid filler, with formulas for lips, cheeks, facial wrinkles, and more.

What cosmetic concerns can dermal fillers treat?

There’s a Restylane product for all the most common cosmetic issues that bother men and women alike. The Restylane family of dermal fillers is FDA-approved to treat:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Aging hands
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Thinning lips

Hyaluronic acid in all Restylane products enhances moisture content in skin and helps restore volume lost over the years. Dr. Agha helps patients decide which type of filler is right for them.

What is the procedure for getting dermal fillers?

Dr. Agha is an expert in cosmetic procedures to help you look and feel your best. If you’re interested in finding out what dermal fillers can do for you, he can develop a customized treatment plan during your consultation.

Dr. Agha works with you to understand your aesthetic goals and chooses the best Restylane product for your needs. For some, combining dermal fillers with Botox® to create a liquid facelift effect is a great cosmetic option. 

Most filler treatment sessions take under an hour from start to finish and results can be immediate. When you come in for your dermal filler, Dr. Agha prepares your skin and makes a number of small injections in the treatment area. The hyaluronic acid solution immediately goes to work, restoring lost volume and smoothing skin. There’s no downtime following the procedure, but redness at the injection site may occur. 

Your results last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the dermal filler Dr. Agha uses and the treatment area. Injections for nasolabial folds and facial wrinkles last the longest, while you can expect to come back for additional treatments sooner for lip injections or the backs of your hands. 

If you’re bothered by sagging facial skin and loss of volume, dermal fillers can help restore that youthful appearance. Find out if Restylane is right for you by calling Advanced Dermatology or booking an appointment online today.
