Losing fullness in your face is a possible effect of aging, but dermal fillers can help restore it. At Georgia Center for Female Health, Lynette D. Stewart, MD, Wanda I. Cape, CNM, MPH, and the team use top-of-the-line dermal fillers to boost your facial volume and refine your facial contours. To find out if you’re a candidate for dermal fillers, book a consultation by phone or online at Georgia Center for Female Health in Peachtree Corners or Decatur, Georgia, today.
Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that addresses many of the changes that happen to your face with age. Over time, you lose some of the cushioning fat in your cheeks, lips, and temples, giving your face a sunken, flat, or tired look. This facial fat loss also contributes to wrinkles, sagging skin, and other changes in your facial contours.
Dermal fillers can correct many of these features with a simple 15- to 30-minute procedure and results that last for months or even over a year. The team at Georgia Center for Female Health carefully places your dermal filler injections to build up volume beneath your skin a little bit at a time. After a few days of possible swelling and redness, the results look completely natural, but well-defined.
You can use dermal fillers to make several specific alterations to your face or to tackle just one insecurity. The team helps you name your goals and designs your treatment plan using the best filler for each feature you’d like to treat. Changes you can make using dermal fillers include:
If you have other goals you’d like to meet with your aesthetic treatment plan, the team can tell you if dermal fillers are the best way to meet them. They can also recommend other treatments, like Botox® injections, for fine lines and unwanted facial dimples.
The team at Georgia Center for Female Health offers several high-end dermal filler brands to help you meet your goals. They can help you select the best of them for your specific treatment, and more are on the way. Currently, they offer:
Juvéderm fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a compound in your body that lubricates your joints and helps your tissues hold water. They also contain a small amount of lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, to keep you comfortable during the injections. The results last from 6-12 months in total.
Like Juvéderm, Restylane is made with hydrating hyaluronic acid. For facial wrinkles, the results last for four to six months. If you use Restylane for your lips, you can enjoy their effect for about a year.
The active ingredient in Radiesse is called calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) and is in the form of tiny spheres suspended in a water-based gel. Your own collagen grows around the microspheres to create gorgeous results that last for a year or longer. Like Juvéderm, you can get Restylane with lidocaine for a more comfortable experience.
