Facial Fillers Overview by New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Wolfeld
When we are young our skin is smooth and elastic with a healthy glow. As we age, our ability to maintain that smoothness and elasticity diminishes, resulting in skin that becomes drier, thinner and less able to replenish itself. Our body's natural collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decrease and our skin becomes looser. This leads to our skin wrinkling and appearing older than it should. Approved by the FDA, facial fillers, such as Restylane® , are designed to match your skin, smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips or shaping facial contours.
Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus are also hyaluronic acid fillers, and also replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. They are very ‘smooth’ fillers that provide a very natural result.
The loss of facial volume can make your face look thin and narrow, with sunken cheeks - sometimes to the extent of making you look older than your actual age. Sculptra® is an innovative cosmetic injectable made of polylactic acid, a synthetic biocompatible substance used in many surgical products, to treat fine lines, wrinkles, folds, scars, hollows, and other depressed areas and enhance the contours of the face for aesthetically pleasing results.
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that has been FDA-approved to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by augmenting the skin's natural collagen supply. Radiesse® immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features, and continues to work over time by stimulating collagen growth and providing extended correction.
