Collagen and Dermal Fillers Northern Virginia
As we age, Mother Nature tends to remind us that we have spent too much time in the sun and that gravity hasn’t always been our friend. We laugh, smile, frown, squint and chew. Wrinkles and lines, sun damage, sagging muscles – all combine to give our faces that aged look. Many people find that this look is one they would like to change aesthetically.
That’s where the skin care skills and experience of the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery and Virginia facial rejuvenation expert, Dr. Desman come in. By using a number of injectable fillers, Dr. Desman is able to help smooth the wrinkles that time, age, and weather have given you. These fillers are long lasting, non-surgical, and have immediate results. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm are just two of many fillers in this category. Hyaluronic acid is a non-animal based and naturally occurring substance in the connective tissue and skin.
Dr. Desman also uses Restylane to smooth away wrinkles and lines on your face. Made in Sweden, Restylane is a crystal-clear, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts using a very fine needle. The results can be seen immediately. Restylane creates a long-lasting, natural look that is gentle and safe on your skin. It works as a filler for wrinkles in the nasolabial folds and crows feet. The effects of Restylane last up to six months.
Juvéderm, another injectable filler that uses hyaluronic acid, has the added benefit of being able to stimulate collagen production in the skin where it is injected. Juvéderm is used to fill hollow places beneath the eyes, to fill nasolabial folds, and to fill acne scars. It has the highest amount of hyaluronic acid of all the fillers, and lasts up to twelve months or more.
Radiesse has a proven record as one of the longest lasting injectable fillers. It can last up to two years, and reduces wrinkles, folds, and areas of the face that look sunken. Areas of the face Radiesse works well on include marionette lines, nasolabial folds, glabellar lines, and frown lines in the forehead. Radiesse can also be used to augment the cheeks and give you the appearance of pronounced cheekbones.
With all non-surgical injectable fillers, the results are immediate with little to no downtime. If you feel injectable fillers are right for you, or if you have any questions about them, please contact Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery.
