Is your face giving away your age or making you look older than you really are? If so, you may be feeling self-conscious about what your aging skin says about you.
Thousands of people have discovered the benefits of injectable dermal fillers to smooth out fine lines, plump up lips and cheeks, and reverse the signs of premature aging. They are a quick and minimally invasive way to restore a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Why Choose Dermal Fillers?
Sometimes, it only takes one glance at someone to tell that they’ve “had work done.” Not when you turn to the expert team at Dermatology Medical Group. At our San Francisco clinic, our talented professionals have perfected the art of combining injectable dermal treatments to give you a natural-looking appearance without undergoing surgery. Your friends and co-workers will wonder what your secret is for looking so rested and refreshed, without ever guessing the real reason.
Dermal fillers are a relatively recent treatment option for patients who want a long-lasting, naturally youthful look without undergoing surgery or dealing with a long, uncomfortable recovery process. These products are designed to help re-contour areas of the face that have developed wrinkles or lost volume as you have aged. You may choose a combination of injectable fillers to reshape your entire face, or just to target wrinkles such as the “parentheses lines” or “marionette lines” around your mouth.
At Dermatology Medical Group, we offer the Juvéderm® and Restylane® product lines, in addition to Sculptra®. All these gel-based products are FDA-approved, nontoxic, and made of naturally derived substances.
The Juvéderm® Family
Juvéderm® is a collection of hyaluronic acid-based fillers that provides volume in areas where you need it, such as the lips, cheeks, and backs of the hands. It is also excellent for smoothing fine to moderate wrinkles around your mouth, such as the nasolabial folds that develop when you smile or the “pucker lines” on your upper and lower lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body that works as a humectant, which means it naturally attracts moisture to help your skin look plump and smooth. Juvéderm® injections can last six to nine months.
The Restylane® Line
Like Juvéderm®, Restylane® is a family of hyaluronic acid fillers. Because of their advanced formulation, Restylane® products are designed to move dynamically with your facial features, which means you will not have any artificial-looking stiffness in your face. Restylane® products are made from a smooth gel that is excellent for restoring volume loss to your skin. Though the results are not permanent, some Restylane® products can last as long as one year.
Sculptra® is a unique dermal filler made with poly-l-lactic acid, a biocompatible substance that can stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. In addition to the instant volume boost you’ll get with Sculptra®, you will also enjoy long-term collagen restoration. Sculptra® can target laugh lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, and other deep creases that have developed in your face. It can also target hollow or sunken cheeks. Because it continues to work within your body, the results of Sculptra® can last for as long as two years.
Immediate Results With No Need for Downtime
Dermal filler injections are painless because we apply a numbing cream to your skin 30 minutes before performing the treatment. The injections themselves take less than a half-hour to perform, so you can easily fit your treatment session into your busy schedule.
The injections are extremely safe because they are made of naturally derived ingredients. Following your treatment, you can immediately resume work and other daily activities. However, you may experience some minor sensitivity, bruising, itching, swelling, and redness at the injection sites for a few days.
