Understanding Facial Fillers
Medical advances and healthier lifestyles are allowing people to live longer, fuller lives. As a result, aging gracefully has become an important goal to many individuals. With age, our skin is more likely to wrinkle or sag. Sun exposure, smiling and chewing can also cause skin tissue to break down. If you would like to achieve a more youthful glow, Dr. Greenberg can use facial fillers to remove wrinkles and plump skin tissue. An alternative to plastic surgery, these products can renew your image and give your confidence a boost.
Also referred to as dermal fillers and injectables, facial fillers are temporary solutions administered to specific areas of the face through several tiny injections. Usually, the results last for about nine to twelve months. These fillers can reduce wrinkle, smooth lines, and refresh your appearance.
Common facial fillers include:
Juvederm® and Restylane®
Designed to add volume to the skin, Juvederm® and Restylane® temporarily correct moderate to severe facial creases and folds. They are both non-animal, biodegradable gels composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that helps with hydration. Through tiny injections Juvederm® and Restylane® allow Dr Greenberg to erase unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
Made from purified cow skin, collagen will fill in lines, wrinkles and scars on the face. Because it is a naturally-occurring protein that supports various parts of the body, collagen is eventually absorbed into the body.
