There’s no way around it – our skin loses volume as we age, especially in the face. In many ways it literally begins to deflate like a balloon. And like a deflated balloon, the surface begins to sag. Lines begin to form. Something once plump and happy begins to look a little lackluster and sad.
Fortunately dermal fillers do a great job of restoring volume to the face. In the hands of an expert, lost volume can be restored just where it’s needed to put the apple back in the cheek, and fade lines and creases around the nose and mouth. It’s quick, simple, comfortable and requires no surgery. Best of all, results of using dermal fillers are almost immediate.
There are many different kinds of dermal fillers, each with their own special strengths. An experienced physician chooses which dermal filler to use based on the correction she or he needs to make.
For example, Restylane is an ideal dermal filler for eyes, filling the hollow areas underneath. Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler used to restore volume to the cheeks. Belotero Balance® is a dermal filler that is ideal for filling fine lines around the mouth. Juvederm Ultra Plus® is a dermal filler that is ideal for softening wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
Whether you’re getting dermal fillers in New Jersey or across the country, the key is to pick a cosmetic practice that injects all of these different types of dermal fillers all day long. This ensures you’re getting the right product and it’s being delivered by someone who specializes in the art of facial injections (and trust us, it IS an art!).
At Reflections, we don’t use needles to inject many kinds of dermal fillers because using something sharp can cause bruising. Instead, we use flexible tiny little tubes called cannulas, which are minimize bruising and make for an all around more comfortable treatment.
Beyond combating volume loss in the face, dermal fillers can also be used to plump the lips, restore “granny hands,” and fill in creases in the décolleté.
The good news is that with so many dermal filler options, there’s no need to feel deflated about getting older!
