What is facial contouring with dermal fillers?
Static wrinkles are those that are visible when the face is relaxed and at rest. As people age, the dermal layer of the skin becomes thinner. The loss of elasticity and fullness is manifested in static wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles can also eventually become permanent and no longer disappear when the face is relaxed. Dermal fillers can help eliminate these types of wrinkles by adding volume to the dermal layer. This plumps up the tissue, returns it to a state similar to that of youth and pushes out the creases. Types of fillers range from hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane to collagen fillers like Cosmoplast. Injections of fat are also used as fillers. The duration of results and possible side effects vary with the type of filler used.
Any form of facial contouring with Dermal Fillers is performed as a non-surgical, minimally invasive out-patient procedure in a physician's office. For those suffering from HIV lipoatrophy (facial wasting) due to medications, Radiesse is the ideal injectable shaper that provides immediate contour improvements and can give the face an overall healthy, full appearance with long-lasting results.
How long will dermal fillers last?
In facial applications, they should provide a correction that lasts around one to two years depending on the type of filler. Individual results may vary, affected by age, metabolism, skin type, lifestyle and muscle activity.
How quickly can I return to my normal activities?
Approximately 24 hours following injection of fillers, most swelling or redness will have subsided. Some patients return to work immediately following injection, while others may need 24 hours.
Are all dermal fillers the same?
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a dermal filler specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you. BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as the nasolabial folds, yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines. BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.
