Anyone who would like to achieve a relaxed, refreshed and natural look can benefit from dermal fillers. Fillers help smooth wrinkles and restore volume to enhance facial shape and reverse the signs of aging. Fillers are also used to enhance and define facial features such as the nose, lips and cheeks. Bertucci MedSpa offers several injectable treatments for different concerns.
Allergan Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Allergan hyaluronic acid fillers such as JUVÉDERM® are often used to smooth wrinkles around the nose and mouth and provide fullness in the lips. This versatile line of hyaluronic acid fillers is also used to restore volume and provide a lift to areas such as the chin and cheeks.
Medicis Aesthetics Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
These hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane® are often used to improve nasolabial folds around the mouth and cheeks, and fill in under-eye hollows. Like the Allergan line of soft tissue hyaluronic acid fillers, products within this line are highly versatile and may also be injected more deeply into the skin to give increased volume and create pleasing facial contours.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler contains calcium hydroxylapatite. This subtance is effective for the correction of medium to deep facial folds and helps to stimulate collagen production in the skin to restore volume, giving a refreshed appearance.
SCULPTRA® is made with poly-L-lactic acid, which thickens skin, restores facial contours and gradually replaces lost collagen over a period of time.
Injectable treatments are popular because they are simple and convenient. One session typically lasts less than 30 minutes and requires no downtime. Dr. Bertucci or another dermatologist injects tiny amounts of the substance into the area in a controlled manner using an ultrafine needle. For increased comfort, a local anesthetic may be incorporated into the treatment to numb the area.
Results can be seen right after treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers and calcium hydroxylapatite and may continue to develop over time with poly-L-lactic acid. Results will vary based on the type of dermal filler used, individual skin conditions, and the amount injected. Generally, however, most people will experience a more refreshed, relaxed and youthful appearance with fewer wrinkles and enhanced facial shape and volume following their treatment.
Q: Are There Any Side Effects?
A: Side effects are uncommon when injections are administered correctly. However, some initial redness, swelling, or itching may develop at the injection site immediately following treatment. These side effects can be minimized using a cold compress and oral pain medication such as Tylenol. In some cases bruising may occur. Rarely, other side effects may occur. Most people find that their issues resolve within a week after treatment.
Q: What Other Options Are Available?
A: Our wrinkle smoothing injectable is commonly used in combination with fillers to further enhance the benefits and, in some cases, to increase the longevity of dermal fillers. Skin resurfacing procedures such as microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing can help improve skin quality for a healthier-looking complexion.
Q: What Is a "Liquid Face Lift"?
A: Dermal fillers can be used for a non-invasive procedure known as a "liquid face lift" or a Soft Lift™ This treatment is intended to mimic the effects of face lift surgery and involves a combination of dermal fillers and a wrinkle smoothing injectable. The injections are strategically placed to provide a softer, youthful, lifted appearance. Results from a Soft Lift are not as significant as a surgical procedure but do provide very significant temporary enhancements that can be maintained with periodic treatment sessions. Dr. Bertucci has been featured for his advanced techniques in liquid face lift procedures. Read Soft Lift article.
Q: What's the Difference Between Dermal Fillers and the Wrinkle Smoothing Injectable?
A: Although dermal fillers and our wrinkle smoothing treatment are both injectable treatments, these products are intended for different purposes. Injectable fillers are used to increase volume and facial fullness, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and improves facial contours. Our wrinkle smoothing injectable is a muscle relaxer that prevents facial muscles from contracting and forming creases. Often, combining these treatments can provide more dramatic, synergistic results.
