Dermal Fillers — An Easy Road to a More Youthful Appearance

In the past year, you may have noticed new fine lines and wrinkles. Aging is a normal process, but you don’t have to look older than you feel. Are your smile lines or the crow’s feet around your eyes looking a little deeper? Perhaps you’ve recently lost weight and your cheeks appear even more sunken than they were. 

 

As you age, your facial muscles don’t have the elasticity they did when you were in your 20s. Loss of collagen, a key protein in your skin, as well as bone and muscle loss, can lead to wrinkled and saggy, drooping skin. Dermal fillers can reduce these signs of aging and likely give your self-confidence a boost as well as your appearance. 

 

One of our board-certified dermatologists at Seacoast Dermatology examines your skin and lets you know whether dermal fillers are a good solution for you or if another answer makes sense. We review your medical history, consult with you about your expectations, and can show you before and after photos to give you an idea of the changes you’ll see in your skin post-treatment. 

 

Dermal fillers are gel-like solutions that we inject into your skin to soften fine lines and wrinkles and plump up the skin in your cheeks. They’re a very popular option for skin rejuvenation; more than one million American adults — men as well as women — select dermal fillers to enhance their appearance every year. 

 

Following are the dermal fillers our Seacoast Dermatology team have selected for their excellent results. 

Juvederm® 

Seacoast Dermatology uses two Juvederm products that target specific areas of your face. The fillers contain modified hyaluronic acid, a substance already inside your skin, which helps hydrate and plump the skin. An added benefit, you’ll see results from your Juvederm treatment right away. There’s no waiting involved. 

Juvederm® XC 

Juvederm® XC treats those smile lines that start at the bottom of your nose and move down to your mouth. Left untreated, they can turn into deep grooves that detract from your appearance. This filler lasts up to one year

Juvederm Voluma® XC

Seacoast Dermatology uses Juvederm Voluma® XC to replenish the hyaluronic acid in your skin. It rushes nutrients to your cheeks, restoring youthful plumpness and softness. Your results look completely natural and last up to two years

 

Sculptra® Aesthetic 

Sculptra Aesthetic contains polylactic acid, a synthetic filler that triggers your body to increase its own collagen production. It’s a safe, biodegradable material — the same material that’s been used for decades to suture skin. Sculptra accomplishes the following: 

 

 

You’ll need three injections over a period of three to four months. Results last up to two years if you follow that regimen. 

Benefits of dermal fillers

There’s a reason that dermal fillers are so popular: They have obvious benefits. 

Long-lasting 

Sculptra Aesthetic and some of the Juvederm fillers last up to two years. 

Convenient

You can receive a dermal filler and go about your day afterward. You may have some bruising so keep that in mind.  Resume normal activity with a caveat: Don’t go to the gym on the same day. Relax for the day and let the treatment sink in. 

No surgery 

Dermal fillers provide a more youthful appearance without the pain, expense, and recovery time of a face-lift. They’re not permanent, but you don’t have the risk of complications from surgery. And you won’t need to take time off work as you would for a face-lift. 

Safe 

Dermal fillers are used worldwide and have a good safety record. Only a board-certified dermatology provider should administer dermal fillers.
