As we age, collagen production decreases, resulting in wrinkles and reduced facial definition. We offer dermal fillers such as JUVÈDERM® and Restylane® at Women’s Choice Aesthetics in Trumbull, CT, to reduce these signs of aging. With the assistance of these FDA-approved injectable fillers, Dr. Neil T. Specht can help you look rested and rejuvenated.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injected below the surface of the skin to add volume, softening deep creases and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This solution can also boost collagen production, helping you experience long-lasting results.
These safe and biocompatible fillers are often recommended to patients who wish to address:
- Facial folds, wrinkles, and furrows
- Thin lips and fallen cheeks
- Loss of definition in the jawline
If you are looking for a less invasive alternative to having a facelift or other cosmetic surgical procedure, dermal fillers can help reduce wrinkles and add volume to your facial features.
Containing hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body, this dermal filler is specifically designed to bind with the water inside your body to enhance treatment. This dermal filler can improve signs of aging around the mouth and the nose, over the cheeks, along the jawline and under the eyes (tear trough). It can also be used to add volume to the lips. Results typically last about 6 to 12 months. The Restylane family includes:
- Restylane Lyft
- Restylane Silk
- Restylane Refyne
- Restylane Defyne
Made from hyaluronic acid, this gel-like dermal filler is designed to plump the skin and fill wrinkles, furrows, and facial folds around the forehead, nose, and mouth. It can also be used as a lip enhancement. The JUVÉDERM family includes:
- JUVÉDERM Ultra
- JUVÉDERM Ultra-Plus
- JUVÉDERM Voluma
Results generally last between six to nine months for Ultra and Ultra-Plus and up to 18 months for Voluma.
This dermal filler contains polylactic acid, a synthetic material found in dissolvable sutures that can be naturally absorbed by the body. When injected, it immediately begins stimulating collagen production to increase facial volume over the cheeks, temples, mid face, jawline and jowl areas.
What to Expect during Treatment
During your consultation, Dr. Specht will review your cosmetic goals to determine which dermal filler is best suited to your needs. Once the right filler has been chosen, he may apply a topical anesthetic before administering the injections. Treatment can generally be completed in 30 minutes and requires no downtime. You can return to normal activity following the procedure, but you may experience some redness and soreness for the first 24 hours around the injection sites. Most results are immediate.
