Cosmetic injectables have transformed the aesthetics world. While your mind might immediately go to wrinkle-freezing options like Botox®, there’s a big world beyond that. It’s important to know that dermal fillers can do a lot for you.
Specifically, with the dermal fillers we offer here at Revive Health and Wellness in Norwell, Massachusetts, Stephanie Sylvester, RN, and Craig Sylvester, MD, can deliver appearance-improving results. Whether you’re looking for a way to reverse the effects of aging or enhance your natural beauty, fillers can help. Let’s take a closer look at what, exactly, you can expect with these cosmetic injectables.
What fillers can do
Fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable specifically designed to do just what the name suggests: fill in missing volume. That makes them useful in two specific applications.
First, many people turn to fillers for their anti-aging effects. As you get older, your skin loses volume due to decreased collagen and elastin production. Fortunately, fillers give you a way to reverse that. With these injections, you can add volume back into sunken cheeks, thinning lips, and deepening creases.
But turning back the clock isn’t the only use for fillers. They also give you a way to improve the contours of your face. With them, we can give you plumper lips or enhanced cheeks, for example. If you think your appearance would benefit from more dramatic contours, talk with our team. We can tell you if fillers will be able to achieve the results you want.
Choosing the right filler for you
Most fillers available today, including the Juvéderm line we offer, leverage hyaluronic acid, a substance that already naturally occurs in your body. This allows us to replenish the volume you’ve lost or add volume where you want it with something that will look and feel natural after application.
All that said, there are a wide variety of fillers available today and each works a little bit differently. After talking with you about your cosmetic goals, our team can recommend the right filler or fillers to give you the look you want.
For example, we might recommend Juvéderm Ultra XC to plump your lips and restore sunken cheeks, combined with Juvéderm VOLBELLA™ XC to fill in vertical lip lines.
Additionally, we may recommend combining fillers with Botox or another injectable that works similarly. While fillers replenish volume, they don’t work for dynamic wrinkles. If you want to smooth forehead or frown lines, for example, you’ll need to add Botox or a similar treatment into your injectable treatment plan.
