Looking to give your face a spring refresh? Dermal fillers make the perfect springtime cosmetic treatment to kick off the warm-weather season. With virtually no downtime, fillers are a quick and easy way to freshen up your appearance, whether you’re looking to smooth away wrinkles, plumpen up your pout or banish under-eye bags.
These are just some of the ways that anti-aging injectable filler treatments can help you look younger and maybe even put a little more spring in your step this season.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Lines, wrinkles and creases are often some of the first signs of aging that show up on your skin. Fortunately, injectables can treat lines and wrinkles in nearly every area of your face, helping you look and feel more energized and refreshed.
For fine lines at the corners of your eyes, also called “crow’s feet,” BOTOX® offers excellent results that typically last between 3 and 6 months.
Fillers like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® and Sculptra® and our new RHA collection are commonly used to treat fine lines, wrinkles and deep creases around your mouth and nose. Hyaluronic acid fillers like JUVÉDERM and Restylane can last up to 18 months before you might need another treatment to maintain your same results. These fillers can also be dissolved before fading away on their own if you are unhappy with your results for any reason.
Sculptra consists of poly-L-lactic acid and can last up to two years before an additional treatment might be needed. Additionally, Sculptra does double duty, so to speak, by also triggering your skin’s own collagen production. However, Sculptra cannot be dissolved before it wears away on its own.
A plump, natural-looking pout is now a sought-after look and is easily achieved with the skillful use of dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers are typically the preferred filler type to add volume to your lips, reshape your lips and correct asymmetry for a balanced, natural look.
Many people choose to get lip filler at the same time as an injectable treatment for lines and wrinkles around their mouths and in other areas of their faces. Always work with a trained, experienced professional when getting any type of lip or facial filler for best results and to avoid complications.
Lost Facial Volume
Lips aren’t the only area that fillers can plump for a smoother, younger look. Dermal fillers can also work to restore lost facial volume in your mid-face, or cheek, area. For many people, lost volume in this area can create a sunken-in and tired appearance. By restoring volume to your cheeks, fillers can give your look an instant boost of energy and vitality.
The appearance of bags or puffiness under your eyes is one of the most common cosmetic complaints from both women and men. Carefully placed injectable fillers can “fill in” the hollow-looking areas under the eye to create a smoother and more energized overall appearance.
Hyaluronic acid fillers like Belotero and Restylane are often the preferred filler type for treating under-eye bags.
