Fillers

Fillers

Natural aging is an inevitable process, but that doesn’t change how you might feel about your appearance. Fine lines, wrinkles and sunken features can detract from your natural beauty and make you feel self-conscious about getting older.

You may be considering plastic surgery as a treatment option, with procedures like facelift, eyelid lift, and brow lift all capable of efficiently reducing aging qualities and restoring youth, but you may also feel hesitant about undergoing such invasive techniques. Although highly effective, surgery is not for everyone, which is why Dr. Carl N. Williams offers nonsurgical techniques that can provide some of the same enhancements you are looking for.

With dermal fillers, you can increase volume to regions around the face and smooth the skin, helping you appear younger and making your skin look vibrant.

Are Dermal Fillers Right for You?

Receiving treatment with dermal fillers often depends on your cosmetic goals, which you can discuss with Dr. Williams’ nurse, Nicole, during a personal consultation. Nicole will be performing your injectable treatment, and during your consultation, you can talk about your expectations for facial rejuvenation. Based on your goals, Nicole can suggest what treatment option she believes will suit you best.

The dermal fillers he offers include:

  • Juvederm Ultra XC
  •  Juvederm Ultra + XC
  • Juvaderm Voluma
  • Restalyne Silk
  •  Restalyne Lyft
  •  Belotero Balance
  • Radiesse
  • Sculptra

Nicole recommends dermal fillers for individuals who desire subtle improvements to their faces. Whereas plastic surgery might produce dramatic changes, dermal fillers will enhance facial features delicately. If you are looking for a cosmetic treatment that is more slight in an attempt to mask the fact that you’ve had work done, then dermal fillers may be right for you.

What Do Dermal Fillers Treat?

You may have a general understanding of both dermal fillers and neurotoxins like BOTOX and Dysport, but have questions about which injectable will produce the best result. Dermal fillers target facial aging that stems from a loss of volume, whereas neurotoxins will treat the muscles that are creating lines and wrinkles.

Dual treatment with fillers and neurotoxins can be effective if you experience overly expressive muscles along with sunken features. Nicole can create a customized treatment plan, including fillers and neurotoxins, that addresses your individual needs.

You can expect dermal fillers to treat your:

  • Laugh lines
  • Thin lips and lip lines
  • Hollowed cheeks and eyes
  • Acne scarring
  • Gauntness in the temples

There are several fillers to choose from, and it’s likely that more than one will be used to create optimal rejuvenation. The filler Nicole uses during your treatment will depend on the regions where natural aging is taking place as well as your aesthetic expectations. Each has a unique longevity as well, which means you can expect to receive maintenance injections over a period of several months. Typically, results from dermal fillers last between 6-12 months.

The Benefit of Dermal Fillers

Injectable treatment with dermal fillers is nonsurgical and minimally invasive, meaning that general anesthesia and incisional techniques are not part of your procedure. Additionally, many of the most popular dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is the substance responsible for increasing moisture levels within the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body, which makes it very easy for dermal fillers to take effect and produce near-immediate results without any downtime.

Although treatment with fillers is temporary, many patients appreciate the control they have over their facial aesthetic and choose whether they want to receive more enhancement as time goes on. Rather than undergo a facelift with too much enhancement, dermal fillers allow you to obtain only the rejuvenation you desire, and if you decide that you want to discontinue their use and achieve results that are more substantial with surgery, the filler will wear off on its own.

No matter the remedy you choose to improve your skin, natural aging almost always takes over, leaving you to consider either surgery or injectable treatment as a next step. When surgery isn’t an option, fillers can improve your appearance and help you look years younger in a way that other skincare mechanisms cannot.

Dermal fillers provide long-lasting and natural-looking results when your regular skin care routine isn’t producing the same, youthful outcome as before.
