Dermal Fillers Philadelphia
Dermal fillers, as their name implies, are injected beneath a wrinkle increase, or area of volume loss and they help to plump or “fill” those areas. This elevates the skin back up and reduces the wrinkle or crease. Dermal fillers work on a different type of wrinkle, known as static wrinkles. These wrinkles are caused by sun damage, declining collagen production, personal habits such as smoking, and simple aging. The most popular dermal fillers, Juvederm and Restylane, are made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that is responsible for hydrating and plumping the skin.
Juvederm Facial Filler Philadelphia
Dermal Filler Treatment – 71-year-old woman came to me with the common complaint of aging changes around her mouth, especially the outer areas near the cheeks. This common target of the aging process often results in sagging of the lower face and causing the unpleasant reality of jowls.
The definitive treatment would likely be a face-lift, but many patients seek non-surgical ways to improve this area. She underwent Juvederm treatment with me and has a very beautiful result. She was well aware that facial fillers like Juvederm Facial Filler Philadelphia are not a substitute for a full face-lift. However, with reasonable expectations, she was very pleased with a nice improvement that looks natural and avoids a major operation. She has a significant reduction in the sagging appearance around the mouth.
Filler in this area can be expected to last 6 months to 1 year. Dr. Chandler performs all non-surgical injectables himself at Chandler Cosmetic Surgery.
