Dermal Filler Injections in Newport News
We offer a variety of dermal fillers to meet our patients’ individual needs. Dermal fillers are injected in tiny amounts into the skin using a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces long-lasting, natural enhancement. Dermal fillers will last from 6 to 12 months, depending on the type chosen, and are very effective for diminishing wrinkles around the corners of the mouth, the lips, the nasolabial folds, and the frown lines.
Dermal fillers are also an excellent temporary filler for lip augmentation. While dermal fillers are not permanent, they provide you with the option of changing your treatment plan in tune with changing taste and fashion.
With all fillers, a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon is necessary to discuss the options and to determine which areas are best suited for treatment. Find out more about the dermal fillers we offer below!
This hyaluronic acid filler is the first and only filler FDA-approved to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in your body to provide elasticity and moisture to your skin, helping to keep it firm and youthful. As we get older, hyaluronic acid production decreases, which leads to loss of volume and drooping of facial skin.
Juvéderm effectively replenishes hyaluronic acid to improve the appearance of vertical lip lines, “marionette” lines between the mouth and chin, and “parentheses” from the bottom of the nose to the side of the mouth.
Your treatment should take less than 15 minutes. You should experience little-to-no discomfort and can resume your normal activities as soon as you’re finished, as long as you avoid direct sunlight and contact with the injection sites for the first 24 hours. Results should gradually appear over the course of three to four days and can last for up to a year.
If you’re concerned with severe wrinkles and deep folds around your nose and mouth, jawline, and chin, Radiesse may be a good option for you. Over the years, important support structures in your skin, such as collagen and elastin, diminish, resulting in a decrease in suppleness and the development of wrinkles.
Radiesse works by both restoring lost volume in the treatment area and stimulating your body’s collagen production. This effectively smooths out wrinkles and improves elasticity to improve the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, and pre-jowl folds.
After treatment, your results should gradually appear over the course of a few days and can last for up to a full year.
Many patients assume that severe wrinkles can only be addressed by surgical or more invasive procedures, but certain injectables can provide dramatic improvement. Perlane is a clear, hyaluronic acid filler with that is injected deeply to address deeper, more severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Perlane is formulated to behave like your body’s natural hyaluronic acid to add volume, hydration, and firmness to the skin. In addition to the placement and depth of injections, Perlane is formulated with larger particles to better address harsher lines and creases.
Immediately after your treatment, you should see improvement in the appearance of deep nasolabial folds, bleed lines around the lips, heavy creases in the lower face, and cheek depressions. Many patients are happy with their results after just one treatment. Any swelling or redness will resolve within the first few days and you will be able to enjoy your results in no time at all!
Often referred to as the “liquid facelift,” Sculptra provides dramatic improvement of wrinkles, sagging skin, and volume loss. It works by stimulating your body’s collagen production to effectively lift and fill in the face to provide a well-rested, smooth, and more youthful appearance.
Both shallow and deeper facial folds and wrinkles can be treated with Sculptra, which is a great option for marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and wrinkles on the chin. After treatment, you should notice a natural soft and youthful improvement to your face.
Many patients benefit from a single treatment, though a series of treatments may be recommended to achieve more dramatic and longer-lasting results.
