Long Lasting Dermal Fillers
Not All Fillers Are Made Equally
I want lips, I want cheeks, I want laugh lines, I WANT VOLUME!! Most people may not know that as we age we lose volume in our face, which is why some may look tired or older than they are. Traditionally, dermal fillers are broken up into 2 categories: Hyaluronic Acid fillers and collagen biostimulators. While most HA dermal fillers last 6-12 months, Sculptra and Radiesse can last up to 2 years.
You must be wondering how can a dermal filler last up to 2 years? The answer is that Sculptra and Radiesse, are amazing versatile products that help compliment the natural aging progress without looking over filled. Collagen biostimulators are unique in that they are able to stimulate collagen in injected areas to bring back volume loss by tightening and lifting the cheeks, temples jowls and even laugh lines. Your body eventually breaks down the product the same way it does HA fillers, however the collagen fibers produced stay.
Sculptra, which is made of poly-L-lactic acid is a resorbable material that when injected causes an inflammatory response. These particles are like little collagen seeds which over time stimulate your body to grow collagen fibers resulting in skin thickening and volumizing.
Radiesse is a non-inflammatory collagen biostimulator made up of calcium hydroxylapatite ( the same stuff that makes up the mineral part of your bones and teeth). It acts as a scaffolding for collagen production and promotes the ingrowth of new tissue which mimics the surrounding tissue. The great part about Radiesse is that you can see some results right away and the results continue to improve with time.
Now that we understand how it works, how do you know if you are a good candidate with so many dermal filler options available? Dermal fillers can give us an instant gratification but, what we don't realize is that you can have the best of both worlds when targeting volume loss with Sculptra or Radiesse.
With Radiesse & Sculptra, you can discover the fountain of youth and age gracefully by the hands of Dr. Dhara Patel and Dr. Nina Desai. All areas for treating depends on the person’s anatomy, skin condition and the end results desired. Restimulate your collagen with long lasting definition for a natural looking non-surgical facelift.
