Are Pharmaceutical Facial Fillers Right for Me?
A cosmetic facial filler can be an effective way to deal with fine lines and wrinkles. Pharmaceutical facial fillers provide solutions to enhance shallow contours and soften creases and wrinkles as well as reducing recessed scars.
Cosmetic Facial Filler
A cosmetic facial filler is an injectable substance that fills and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. The substances may be manufactured or be grafting fat from the recipient’s own body, depending on your goals and your treatment plan. A cosmetic facial filler can help plump lips, soften creases and wrinkles, and even reduce scars that are recessed or sunken. Facial fillers are a semi-permanent way to deal with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Maintenance may be required over the long term to retain the youthful smooth appearance of the skin.
Some patients, due to allergies or sensitivities to certain manufactured fillers, may opt to use fat grafting as an effective technique for addressing fine lines and wrinkles. Typically, fat is removed from the inner thigh or abdomen, and injected below the skin surface in the treatment area. Since the donation comes from your own body, there is no concern of rejection or sensitivity with fat grafting.
Pharmaceutical Facial Fillers
Pharmaceutical facial fillers include Juvederm, Voluma XC, Restylane, Scuptura, RADIESSE and others. Unlike fat grafting, pharmaceutical facial fillers are a temporary solution, lasting from a few months to a few years depending upon your goals and the product you choose. When you come in for your consultation, your trained aesthetician will discuss the options with you and help you make the right choice for you.
