Injectable Fillers Boston
Dermal fillers are an amazing option for women and men who are looking to address issues like fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and a loss of facial volume. While these issues are a common side effect of aging, you don’t have to let them affect your confidence in your appearance. Our team at Volpe Plastic Surgery can provide you with amazing results from your dermal filler treatment in Boston.
Are Fillers Right for Me?
As we all know, aging, gravity, sun damage, and other factors can wreak havoc on the skin. Underlying tissues that work hard to keep your skin looking young and alive, start to break down as we grow older. Laugh lines and smile lines which used to disappear, start to become permanent. Crow’s feet and other facial lines and wrinkles start to appear permanently in areas where facial muscles do the most work. This can all make one look tired and old.
Hope is not lost, however. Through the use of injectable fillers your cosmetic surgeon can fill in these unsightly lines, and creases to help you have younger, smoother-looking skin. When injected by an expert, these fillers can add fullness to the lips and cheeks, and reduce or erase those unsightly lines and wrinkles.
Restylane® is a clear, biodegradable gel used to diminish facial lines and wrinkles that commonly develop around the corners of the mouth, around the lips, and the “marionette lines” from the nose to the corners of your mouth. It is also a very effective lip plumper. Made from a substance naturally found in the body, Restylane® does not contain any animal proteins, and is safe and gentle to your skin.
Juvéderm™, is one of the latest dermal fillers available. Also used to diminish facial lines and wrinkles similar to those mentioned above, it is available in two strengths: ULTRA for less intense areas and lips, and ULTRA PLUS to correct deeper wrinkles and folds.
Composed of hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm™ is made from a natural substance found in all living cells and one of the major components of the skin’s connective tissue. Its water-loving makeup attracts and binds water molecules to help restore volume and fullness to the skin, smoothing lines wrinkles.
Perlane® is a clear, biodegradable gel used similarly to Restylane® and Juvéderm™. Its water-loving nature also attracts and binds water molecules to help restore volume and fullness to the skin, smoothing lines and wrinkles.
Perlane® is also composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that exists in the body, and is chemically cross-linked to delay breakdown by skin enzymes. It is free from animal protein, thus safe and gentle to your skin. Allergy testing prior to use is not necessary.
What to Expect After Your Filler Treatment
Dermal filler injections are a non-surgical and minimally-invasive option for facial rejuvenation. There is no recovery period required following your dermal filler treatment. Some patients may choose to relax for an hour or two after the treatment, but most normal activities can be resumed with away.
There may be some light bruising and swelling around the injection sites, but these issues will subside quickly. The results of your dermal filler treatment will vary based on factors like the type of dermal filler used.
