What are dermal fillers?
As you get older, your face loses some volume and elasticity. You notice your skin sagging, fine lines developing, and wrinkles deepening. Dermal fillers are injectables the team at Dr. K’s Med Spa use to combat these effects by expanding, adding volume, and plumping deflated areas.
What conditions do dermal fillers treat?
Dermal fillers reverse the signs of aging by “filling” designated treatment areas, such as:
- Fine lines
- Thin lips
- Sagging cheeks
Most dermal fillers do double duty and also stimulate collagen production, which helps keep your skin vibrant and youthful.
What types of dermal fillers are available?
At Dr. K’s Med Spa, your dedicated team of aesthetician specialists offers the following dermal fillers by Allergan™, a world leader in medical grade skin care products:
Some fillers work better in certain areas compared to others. When you meet with your aesthetic specialist, your goals and skin type help your aesthetician determine which dermal filler is best for you.
What is Juvederm?
Approved by the FDA, Juvederm is a popular dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid. In its natural state, hyaluronic acid keeps your skin healthy looking by adding volume and hydration.
When you develop frown lines, smile lines, wrinkles, or furrows, Juvederm helps by restoring depleted hyaluronic acid.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is an innovative and versatile dermal filler that’s especially useful for nasolabial folds and marionette lines. The key component of Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance your body makes.
Injections with Radiesse enhance and contour your facial features. Eventually, your body absorbs the Radiesse to boost its own natural collagen production.
What is Voluma?
Specifically for the cheek area, Voluma is a fairly new, FDA-approved filler. It stands out because it gives more lift than other fillers and lasts up to two years. If for some reason you’re unhappy with Voluma, it also has the distinct benefit of being fully reversible.
Do dermal filler injections hurt?
At Dr. K’s Med Spa, your comfort is a priority. You have access to numbing agents to keep you from feeling too much during the treatment. It’s possible that you’ll feel a pinch or burning sensation as the needle goes under the skin, but it’s well tolerated and the procedure doesn’t take very long.
