What Are Cosmetic Facial Fillers?

Cosmetic facial fillers are injectable substances that restore facial contours and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. We offer injection therapy with both manufactured injectables and fat grafting. Facial fillers are commonly used on the face and other parts of the to:

  • Plump lips
  • Enhance Shallow Contours
  • Soften Creases
  • Soften Wrinkles
  • Reduce Recessed Scars

Fat Grafting

With fat grafting, your own fat is taken from an area of your body using liposuction. Fat is typically taken from the inner thigh or abdomen. The fat is injected below the skin surface to fill hollow areas and creases, or plump the lips and back of the hands. Facial fillers with fat grafting are a long-lasting solution to these problems.

Manufactured Facial Fillers

Juvederm Voluma XC, Juvaderm Ultra XC, Juvaderm Ultra Plus XC, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Sculptra, and RADIESSE injectables are all carried in our Charleston plastic surgery clinic. The pharmaceutical filler gels are injected under the skin to restore volume and reduce lines. Pharmaceutical fillers are temporary, lasting a few months to multiple years depending on the type of injectable.

Microdermabrasion Vs. Chemical Peels

Both microdermabrasion and chemical peels are popular anti-aging skin care services we perform routinely in our Charleston plastic surgery center, but there are some key differences between the two skin treatments. Some of our patients aren’t sure which kind of treatment would be better for them and their personal aesthetic goals. Learn more about each procedure and which one might be better for you. Make your appointment with our on-staff esthetician in Charleston!

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a minimally abrasive exfoliating technique. Specialty instruments are used to gently remove the uneven outer layer of your skin and promote collagen production in your skin. Collagen is a vital protein for keeping your skin youthful, smooth, and clear.

After microdermabrasion, patients have no down time and you’ll leave our Charleston office with a youthful, long lasting glow. We recommend one treatment a month for the best results.

Microdermabrasion is more successful targeting minor skin imperfections, including:

  • Skin Texture
  • Skin Tone
  • Clogged Pores
  • Acne/Black Heads
  • Softening of Acne Scars

Chemical Peels

Like microdermabrasion, chemical peels are used to improve skin irregularities, but the procedures are different. A chemical peel is a minimally abrasive technique that uses a chemical solution that is carefully applied to your skin. The chemicals remove the damaged outer layers to unveil a smooth, youthful skin surface. There are three types of chemical peels, light, moderate, and deep. Peel strength is selected according to our patients’ concerns and lifestyle.

Recovery is minimal, but patients can expect redness, flaking, and general skin irritation after the treatment. Recovery after a deep peel will cause the most symptoms.

Chemical peels are suited to treat multiple light to moderate skin imperfections, including

  • Skin Texture
  • Acne & Acne Scars
  • Age Spots
  • Wrinkles & Fine Lines
  • Skin Pigmentation
  • Sun-Damaged Skin
  • Scars
  • Freckles
