As you get older, the aspects of your face that indicate youth and health start to fade. You may notice your facial contours are fading or that you are starting to get more wrinkles, lines, or creases on your face. Luckily, there is a way to remedy these signs of aging. Dermal fillers can shape and contour your face by filling hollow areas and creases or plumping your lips. Swelling usually dissipates in less than two weeks and can produce results from a few months to several years. Here are a few of the products that Dr. O’Neill offers.
RADIESSE® is a manufactured dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth wrinkles and folds on the face. Common folds and wrinkles that RADIESSE targets are the creases around the nose and corners of your mouth.
Restylane® is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, adding fullness to skin that has lost its natural volume. Restylane® is effective in filling facial wrinkles and folds without the need for surgery. Results typically last about six months and can be repeated as necessary.
Juvederm™ injectable gel is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Dr. O’Neill eases Juvederm™ injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvederm™ Voluma™ is the latest of the Juvederm line of fillers created to target volume loss in specific areas including the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. Voluma is versatile in that we can also use it to add definition to the jawline.
