All About Dermal Fillers
Aging and genetics can lead to volume loss in the face. Volume loss creates hollowness, shadows, and an aged appearance that can make you look old, tired, and even sad. Injectable dermal fillers provide an immediate solution for these problematic signs of aging and can smooth out the skin, lift sagging facial features, create contours, and plump the skin to restore a youthful appearance.
We are proud to offer a wide assortment of dermal fillers because no single face requires the same treatment plan. With different fillers to choose from, we can create the most aesthetic results and help you reach your ultimate goals.
What Areas Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
Dermal fillers can be injected in some common areas, but only an advanced injector has the skill and precision to administer such fillers into alternative locations on the face. Not only is Dr. Alice Kuntz board-certified, but she’s an expert injector who has been administering injections for over 15 years. She can skillfully inject hyaluronic acid-based fillers into areas that need more volume or areas that need enhancements to create the most aesthetically pleasing look.
These injection sites include but are not limited to the temples, cheeks, forehead, tear troughs, nose, jawline, the angles of the jaw, chin, neck, and even the hands. If you have a specific area of concern and want to add volume or enhance your features, you can discuss it with Dr. Kuntz during your initial consultation. She will make suggestions and help create a customized treatment plan so that you can look like the best version of yourself.
Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance used by the body to plump the skin and keep it youthful. With aging comes a decrease in HA production, but hyaluronic acid-based cosmetic injectables use a synthetic version of HA that closely matches the body’s own HA to restore volume below the skin.
Juvederm Ultra and Other Formulations
Juvederm is a trusted collection of hyaluronic acid-based injectables that both treat the signs of aging and enhance the features. At our office, we offer several formulations from this collection including Juvederm Ultra, Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure.
Juvederm Ultra and other formulations provide long-lasting results that can last up to a year or longer with optimal treatment. We use Juvederm Ultra and the other formulations in this collection to enhance the cheeks, contour the chin and jawline, augment the lips, and fill in facial folds.
Restylane is another HA injectable made of a crystal clear gel form of hyaluronic acid that mimics the HA found within your body. At our office, we offer Restylane Classic, Lyft, Silk, Refyne, and Defyne. These different formulations have different particle sizes so that they can treat a wide range of concerns.
When injected just below the surface of the skin, we can use these different formulations to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds that form due to volume loss, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds. These formulations can also add fullness and definition to the lips and even restore youth to the hands. They all provide immediate and long-lasting results.
Revanesse Versa is an effective hyaluronic acid-based filler that can be injected in moderate to deep wrinkles in the skin and improve the appearance of laugh lines that often turn into nasolabial folds. Results are immediate and last up to 12 months.
Belotero Balance is an HA-based injectable that restores immediate volume to the skin. It integrates well with skin tissues and can easily treat and correct moderate to severe lines that are etched into the skin, including vertical lip lines and facial wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is an effective ingredient used in many different injectables, but it’s not the only effective ingredient. Other injectables can restore volume and they use alternative ingredients to restore youth, correct volume loss, and even increase collagen production within your body. At our office, we use different collagen-stimulating fillers like Sculptra and Radiesse.
Radiesse is a collagen-stimulator that is injected below the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen production. It is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in a gel form and when injected, it stimulates collagen production. It can treat and correct the signs of aging and volume loss in the lower half of the face, as well as the hands.
We also use hyperdilute Radiesse to enhance different areas of the neck and body to improve the appearance of sagging skin and restore firmness. This is an effective solution for those who want to improve not just their face, but certain areas of their body.
If you have different areas on your face and body that have experienced volume loss, we can restore that volume with the use of Sculptra. This collagen-stimulator can help treat and correct volume loss in the face. It restores volume to the cheeks, the jawline, and the temples. It is an injectable gel composed of Poly-L lactic acid, an acid that stimulates collagen production below the surface of the skin as your body absorbs it over time.
This injectable delivers gradual results and you will notice an improvement in your problem areas within three to six months of your initial treatment. However, the results are well worth it and will last up to three years once the effects of increased collagen production set in. We can use Sculptra not only to treat the face but to improve the firmness of the skin and increase collagen production in the neck and different areas of the body.
How To Begin an Anti-Aging Routine With Dermal Fillers
You have all of the topicals, the sunscreen, the vitamin C serum, and even the retinol but you’re still not satisfied with your appearance. All of those products are important, but sometimes you need something more, and that solution can be found in dermal fillers. When you add cosmetic injectables to your anti-aging routine, Dr. Kuntz will help you create the most natural-looking yet youthful version of yourself.
