Dermal fillers are injected under the skin to restore fullness to your face and lips. There are many brands of fillers available to erase fine lines, diminish wrinkles, lift cheeks, and plump lips. Their results last four to nine months, sometimes longer, depending on the product. The key ingredient in most dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is a moisturizer that’s naturally produced in your skin, so it’s safe to use in facial injectables.
The providers at Fairfax OB-GYN Associates are prepared to rejuvenate your appearance with a large selection of dermal fillers that target virtually every type of wrinkle. They offer:
Restylane®: All Restylane products contain hyaluronic acid gel. Restylane corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds or parentheses lines (wrinkles that run from the sides of the nose down to the corners of your mouth) and marionette lines (wrinkles that begin at the corners of your mouth and run down toward the chin). Restylane-L® targets the same wrinkles as Restylane, but the injection also contains lidocaine. Restylane® Silk is used to augment lips and smooth wrinkles around the mouth
Juvéderm®: This family of injectable fillers contains hyaluronic acid, too. Juvéderm Voluma® XC and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Juvéderm Ultra Plus may also fill in depressed areas in the cheeks. Juvéderm® Ultra XC is specially formulated to add volume to lips
Botox and Dysport treat different types of wrinkles than those that are softened by dermal fillers. Both are made from purified botulinum toxin, which is injected into muscles that are responsible for wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and furrows across the forehead.
Botox and Dysport relax the muscles, which in turn diminishes the wrinkles. These products are carefully injected into specific muscles, so you lose wrinkles without sacrificing your natural facial expressions. Botox and Dysport last about three to six months.
Kybella is a unique type of facial injectable that contains deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally produced in your body, where it helps break down dietary fat. When injected, it eliminates a double chin by filling a similar role and destroying fat cells. The damaged cells are eliminated by the body, so the loss of fat is permanent.
