As we age, the face develops folds and creases that are caused by the loss of volume and hollowing in the skin. This is caused by the effects of gravity and repetitive facial activity over time. One of the most popular methods for treating these folds and creases is the use of Dermal Fillers. These fillers can also be used to augment the size and shape of the lips.
Until recently, there were no effective treatments to stop or reverse this process. Now, using non-invasive Dermal Fillers, our doctors are able to help you address the issue of volume loss by filling the void under the skin which will erase those creases. Once finished, you will enjoy the results of a natural, more youthful look, with softer facial contours and a healthier appearance.
After an initial consultation, we will choose the most effective Dermal Filler to produce the optimum results to provide you with an enjoyable and natural looking appearance. To learn more about Dermal Fillers, click here to schedule a FREE consultation with Zeiter Eye Medical Group.
Two of the most common Dermal Fillers are Restylane and Juvederm.
Restylane is the one of the most widely used dermal fillers in the United States and has established a strong record of safety, efficacy and longstanding results. Restylane is made from Hyaluronic acid and closely resembles the same substance that naturally occurs in the body. Restylane immediately softens the lines and wrinkles seen associated with aging skin and enhances your natural features such as the lips or cheeks. Restylane is injected with a very fine needle during a comfortable procedure and allows the patient to quickly resume their daily activities. Because Restylane does not contain any animal-derived ingredients, no skin test is required. Restylane lasts 6-12 months.
Juvederm Ultra™ and Juvederm Ultra Plus are dermal fillers made from a smooth gel that help to instantly restore the skin’s volume and smooth away your facial wrinkles and folds (such as the nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth). Juvederm is composed of Hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to the skin. By adding Juvederm to your facial areas, our doctors use the hyaluronic acid to supplement the body’s natural supply of this substance. Juvederm comes in two formulations, Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus. Juvederm Ultra Plus is more robust, and helps us to better treat deeper folds and wrinkles and it may also last for a longer duration. Juvederm can last up to one year.
