Restore a More Youthful Appearance
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular ways to make a dramatic improvement in your appearance—immediately. Dermal fillers “fill in” facial wrinkles and folds by replenishing the naturally occurring substances skin loses with age.
In this treatment, fillers are injected beneath the surface of the skin to add volume and fullness and restore a more youthful appearance. Unlike surgical or other solutions for aging skin, filler treatments are non-invasive, improve a plethora of appearance issues, and provide instant results. At Hormone Therapy of Orlando, we offer a variety of filler products including both Juvederm® and Restylane® fillers. The type of filler we use depends on the area(s) to be treated.
What Areas Can Dermal Fillers Improve?
Cheeks. With the diminishment of collagen and hyaluronic acid over time, cheeks lose fullness and vibrancy. Fillers lift and plump up the cheeks, restoring a youthful contour. This creates an overall energized and younger-looking face.
Lips. Fillers add volume and definition to thinning lips and help soften the fine lines that can develop in the lip area. Our clinicians are meticulous in applying only an amount of filler that will subtly enhance the lips for natural-looking results. Lip fillers also help even out the texture of the lips by filling in lines and helping to restore symmetry.
Marionette Lines & Nasolabial Folds. Marionette lines are the lines below each corner of the mouth. Nasolabial folds are the lines that run from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Both of these age one’s appearance. Dermal fillers effectively erase these lines to create a softer and more youthful appearance.
Scars. If facial scars keep you from feeling attractive, dermal fillers are a solution that reduces the appearance of scars and evens out the texture of the surrounding skin. This not only improves your appearance but also adds a boost to your self-esteem.
Chin & Jawline Contouring. Dermal fillers are also used to help reshape the chin and jawline resulting in a more attractive profile. The result is a more aesthetically symmetrical appearance.
No matter which part of your face needs improvement, there is a dermal filler that can enhance and beautify your look.
What is in Dermal Fillers?
There are several different fillers on the market, each with specific formulations designed to provide specific results. Some ingredients are naturally occurring and some are synthetic. Many fillers — including Juvederm and Restylane — are made with naturally occurring hyaluronic acid that plays a role in keeping skin volumized and hydrated. Both of these dermal filler brands are FDA-approved for cosmetic use.
How Long Do Results Last?
You can expect fairly long-lasting results with either Juvederm or Restylane and their longevity is dependent on the area treated. In general, most fillers last up to a year or longer.
What to Expect During a Dermal Filler Treatment
There are numerous filler formulations to select from depending on your desired outcome. A pre-treatment consultation with our aesthetic experts will help guide you on the appropriate filler to give you the results you seek. The area(s) to be treated is first numbed with a local anesthetic cream before the filler is injected under the skin using an ultra-fine needle. Most clients experience little or no discomfort during treatment. We also offer ProNox™, a self-administered anxiety and pain relief system for patient use. ProNox™ uses a nitrous oxide delivery system that works in seconds and wears off minutes after use.
You will see immediate improvements in the areas treated.
Some swelling, redness, or bruising may occur after treatment. Such conditions, if any, will fade within a few days. There is no downtime after treatment and normal activities may be resumed right away.
