December brings holiday parties and family gatherings. You want to look your best for festive, fun events with people you love. If you have signs of premature aging such as thinning lips, facial creases, and cheeks that have lost definition, now is the time to make some changes.
At Seacoast Dermatology, our board-certified dermatologists examine your facial structure and make recommendations for ways to turn back signs of aging and improve your appearance. Dermal fillers are one tool that can help you accomplish your aesthetic goals.
We’ve selected JUVÉDERM® and Sculptra® dermal fillers to use in our practice for their high quality and ability to address a variety of aesthetic concerns. Here are four common complaints that we can address with dermal fillers.
Facial folds and creases
Do you have creases or deepening grooves from the sides of your nose that extend to each side of your mouth? These lines come from years of contracting your facial muscles around your mouth as you smile or laugh.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC helps minimize these unattractive lines that make you look older than you are. You’ll see results immediately, so you can feel confident at fun holiday happenings. The treatment lasts for up to 18 months following the recommended protocol.
Have your cheeks lost their fullness? It’s unfortunately a part of the aging process. Hollow cheeks can make you look ill and older than you are.
You can reverse this natural decline in facial fullness. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC restores natural looking fullness to your face by stimulating collagen deep under your skin’s surface. Your face will have new, youthful contours.
As you age, your cheeks may flatten and your skin may begin to sag. This is the result of natural loss of volume in your cheeks, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC adds volume beneath the skin's surface, which provides lift and contour to your cheeks. Results last up to two years.
Do your lips look like thin pencil lines? Perhaps you also have tiny lines at the top of your lips where you’ve pursed your mouth over the years as you applied lipstick.
Lips can lose fullness and definition as you age and your collagen supplies diminish. If you want to bring back a lush look to your lips, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injectable gel accomplishes two tasks at one time.
It adds volume to your lips, giving you back a youthful mouth while smoothing out those lipstick lines. Results last up to one year.
Marionette lines at the corners of your mouth
Perhaps you have a series of lines that extend outward from each corner of your mouth almost to your chin. Instead of lines, you might have a deep groove.
Now you can greatly reduce that crease with Sculptra, a dermal filler that can smooth out those lines and creases that age you prematurely. Sculptra stimulates your body to produce new collagen fibers that fill in those unsightly cracks on either side of your mouth.
Sculptra accomplishes its work gradually. New collagen supplies build up over a number of weeks and months. This way, the change in your looks is natural. Your friends are going to say you look so young, but they likely won’t realize what’s made the difference. Results last up to two years.
