No matter what age we are, we always want to put our best face forward. However, things like sun exposure, the natural aging process, and everyday stresses of life can make our faces appear tired and worn out, even if we don’t feel this way. If your face has developed wrinkles or lost fullness, we highly recommend undergoing treatment with injectable fillers at our Orange County practice to achieve a rejuvenated appearance.
Injectable fillers can effectively:
- Diminish wrinkles and creases
- Add volume to shallow/hollow areas
- Fill sunken scars
- Plump the lips
Injectable fillers are beneficial to women and men who feel their faces make them look older than they really are. Ideal candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.
Orange County Injectable Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a substance FDA approved for use in fillers, and it is naturally found inside the body. Fillers made of hyaluronic acid add volume to the cheeks and areas around the lips, such as nasolabial folds. These types of fillers include JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®.
Hydroxylapatite is a calcium compound naturally found in the bones. Fillers made of hydroxylapatite are the most dense fillers available, and they are used to fill deep creases such as the nasolabial folds. RADIESSE® is the most popular filler of this type.
Collagen is a protein that naturally exists in the skin to help keep it firm. Collagen injections used for filler treatment require prior testing to make sure patients do not experience an allergic reaction.
Recovery and Results
Although some redness and swelling will exist directly after the injections, there is little to no recovery time associated with injectable fillers. In fact, many patients return to work and resume their daily routine as soon as the procedure is complete. While the results vary depending which fillers are used, patients can expect noticeably improved results that are long lasting.
