Dermal Filler Sudbury
As we age, our skin loses some of its elasticity. Our skin needs a protein called collagen in order to be flexible and smooth. The more we age, the slower the rate at which our bodies produce collagen. With the production of collagen in our bodies slowing down, our skin starts to lose its suppleness, smoothness, and elasticity, leading to sagging.
The face also loses volume over time as a result of the loss of tissue from the underlying facial fat layer. This causes it to appear gaunt. Another unfortunate side effect of aging is the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
While we can’t completely avoid or hide from these effects of age, we can delay the process using cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers. There are many different types of dermal fillers that are available on the market right now, including Juvederm and Radiesse.
Juvederm treatments are FDA-approved minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age lines. Juvederm has many benefits and negligible risks. It is primarily made from synthetic hyaluronic acid, which can be found in the body in its natural form, so there is very little to no chance of an allergic reaction.
Juvederm can give your face a fuller, more youthful look by filling moderate to deep facial creases and wrinkles. It can even be used to enhance the shape and size of your lips!
Unlike many minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, in most cases only a single Juvederm treatment is required for long-lasting results. You will be able to see a difference in your appearance almost immediately after the procedure. The results from the treatment can last for over six months.
$500 – 750/ml
Radiesse is another popular dermal filler option. This filler diminishes the appearance of lines, wrinkles, creases, and facial folds. It has been approved by the FDA and is also used to treat certain medical conditions like vocal cord deficiencies.
Radiesse is composed of small spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite that are suspended in a gel-like substance. When this filler is injected, the microspheres form a framework in the tissues. Between these microspheres, new collagen forms. These two factors work together to fill in the wrinkles and creases on the face.
The whole procedure only takes about 15 minutes or less to complete, and there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction, thanks to the natural components that Radiesse is made up of. The results acquired from Radiesse treatments are also quite long-lasting and can be seen for around a year or longer. As collagen builds in the skin, the results improve over time.
Restylane is an FDA-approved cosmetic dermal filler that is made from non-animal-sourced hyaluronic acid. It was the first facial dermal filler that was approved by the FDA as a proven treatment for healing subdermal facial tissues. What this means is, unlike other dermal fillers, Restylane can be injected into the deeper layers of the skin, allowing tissue healing at the cellularlevel.In cosmetic treatments, Restylane is used to treat wrinkles and other age-related facial conditions. Some of the issues Restylane can treat include:
- The nasolabial folds
- Fine lines
- Sunken cheeks
- Thin lips
- Melomental folds
- Frown lines
- Marionette lines
