Signs of aging tend to creep up on us long before we are ready for them. Fine lines start to form around the eyes and lips, while deeper creases begin to make an appearance around the nose, mouth, and chin. Fortunately, there are ways to reverse those signs of aging today that do not require anesthesia, incisions, or downtime. The solution lies in injectable treatments known as dermal fillers.

How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers are formulations that are injected into the underlying skin structure. The solutions support the underlying structure, restoring volume and smoothing away wrinkles from the inside out. With many different formulations to choose from, we can tailor each patient’s treatment to their specific concerns and desired results.

Treatment Areas

Dermal fillers offer benefits to many different areas of the face. Some of the most common concerns addressed by dermal fillers include:

  • Loss of volume and definition in the cheeks
  • Hollows and dark circles under the eyes
  • Fine lines that form in the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Creases that extend from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Lines that run from the mouth to the jawline (marionette lines)
  • Mild skin sagging along the jawline

Options in Dermal Fillers

To address these many different areas of the face, Dr. Cole and the staff at Cole Aesthetic Center offer a variety of options in dermal fillers:

Hyaluronic Acid

This substance is naturally produced by the body to seal in hydration and give skin its smooth appearance. By restoring hyaluronic acid to the underlying skin structure, we can effectively turn back the clock. Common hyaluronic acid fillers include Juvederm, Restylane, and Restylane Lyft.

Calcium Microspheres

Calcium hydroxylapatite is found naturally in the bones and teeth of the human body. When microspheres are injected into the skin, the result is a smoother, wrinkle-free complexion. This substance offers results that tend to last even longer than hyaluronic acid fillers and is found in the filler Radiesse.

Poly-L-Lactic Acid

Sculptra is the filler that contains poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that offers immediate and long-term support to the underlying dermal layers. As the ingredient is slowly absorbed by the body, it stimulates the body’s own collagen production to maintain a naturally youthful appearance.

Dr. Cole will meet with you prior to your treatment to discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals. He can then recommend the best filler solution for your specific needs.

Fast Treatment, No Downtime

Dermal fillers have the distinct advantage of convenience over other cosmetic treatments. In just a few minutes of time, you can complete your procedure and return to your regular activities right away. Some bruising or swelling may occur around the injection points, but that usually subsides within a day or two. Results can also be seen right away, although they will likely improve in the days following your procedure.

Natural, Long-Lasting Results

While dermal fillers are not a permanent anti-aging solution, their results can be long-lasting. Hyaluronic acid fillers usually last 6-12 months, while Radiesse can last up to one year. Sculptra is the longest-lasting filler at this time, with results that can last up to two years. Maintain those positive results by coming in periodically for touch-up treatments, and you can keep your more youthful appearance indefinitely.

Dermal fillers are a quick, relatively easy way to maintain a youthful appearance. To learn more about your options in dermal fillers, contact Cole Aesthetic Center today at 360.613.2600.
