RESTORE, ENHANCE, AND PRESERVE WITH DERMAL FILLER
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are a safe, non-surgical injectable treatment for removing wrinkles and fine lines and restoring youthful fullness to the face. Since dermal fillers are non-surgical, there is no downtime after the treatment and they can be performed in under an hour.
The most popular type of dermal filler is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is already present in the skin and is in charge of plumping and hydrating the skin. As we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid decrease leaving the skin to loose bounce and elasticity.
Other FDA approved fillers include bio stimulatory products like calcium hydroxyapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). Collagen, the oldest filler, is still used today and is one of the most natural choices to enhance the skin’s texture and increase volume.
The composition of each type of dermal filler is different, but they are all injected deep beneath the skin to fill in lines and wrinkles, restore lost volume, and enhance the contours of the face and body. After treatment with dermal filler, the skin is instantly smoother, more plump and radiant.
WHICH AREAS OF THE FACE DO DERMAL
Dermal fillers are an amazing treatment because they are highly effective, deliver fast and lasting results, and are safe for all skin types. Before placing dermal filler at TRU FORM SKIN LAB, your provider will perform a thorough assessment and get to understand your aesthetic goals. Depending on those goals, we will help you select the correct filler. For instance, if your ideal look is high cheekbones and a beautiful angled jawline, then Radiesse, a very stable filler made from bio stimulating calcium hydroxyapatite may be the best choice to provide volume and a striking contour. If you are looking to fill the deep folds around the mouth and nose, then Bellafill, a collagen and PMMA based filler could be used to help restore the area.
Over time, the loss of hyaluronic acid leads to the appearance of wrinkles and the loss of fullness to the lips. As the lips become thinner, they lose volume and lack definition.
When lips lose their definition, dermal fillers are used to define and outline them again. This treatment is called Lip Border enhancement and it is also perfect for patients who are getting lip lines (smoker lines). After the dermal fillers treatment lips return their original shape and restore lost volume.
Lip lines or Smokers lines are the vertical lines above the upper lip. Dermal fillers restore lost volume to the skin that developed these lines. The skin gets smoother and the definition around the lips is improved.
In some cases, patients are satisfied with the shape of their lips and they just wish to add more volume to the lip body. Dermal fillers are ideal for lip body enhancement because they make lips look more hydrated. This is just a subtle change in lips’ appearance. Dermal fillers can also make a more dramatic change and make the lips fuller and more enhanced. After the treatment lips still, look natural and every movement of the lips is preserved.
CUPID BOW LIPS
This is a V-shaped contour in the upper lip center that makes the two peaks and bow-shaped upper lip. Dermal Fillers can be used to enhance the Cupid Bow and shape the upper lip. This treatment can also be used to contour the flat upper lip.
They represent raised vertical columns that go from the peaks of the upper lip to the nose. Dermal fillers can be used to enhance the shape of Philtrum columns. This treatment brings back the youthful and well-supported area of the upper lip. The skin that surrounds the lips provides support for them. So, treating lower face areas with Dermal Fillers can be also considered in order to fully enhance lip appearance.
UPPER FACE FILLERS
Dermal fillers are highly effective for cheek bones enhancement and skin lifting. Also, this treatment reduces sagging and facial lines and creates better facial support and structure. This treatment can bring wonderful results to both men and women who wish to get a more structured face. Cheek augmentation brings back a fresh and youthful appearance to the face and enhances facial contours.
DERMAL FILLER FOR TEAR TROUGH
Dermal fillers are ideal for patients who have tired-looking eyes, dark circles or deep hollows below the eyes. After the treatment, the eyes look more open, fresh and vibrant. At TRU FORM SKIN LAB, we utilize a microdroplet technique to ensure even placement of filler under the eye.
Dermal fillers can be used to perform non-surgical rhinoplasty. This treatment is perfect for people who prefer not to undergo nose surgery. After the treatment with dermal fillers, the nose bridge looks slender better defined.
Dermal fillers can help lift the brows and restore the shape of the bone under the brow. The eyes look less tired and more open following this restorative eyebrow lift.
FOREHEAD DERMAL FILLER
This treatment can reduce wrinkles and lines or restore the forehead curve back. As the skin matures the forehead flattens and elongates. But, dermal fillers treatment can minimize the signs of aging on the forehead.
As we age or experience lipoatrophy (fat loss) of the upper face the temples can become sunken, disrupting facial balance. Placing dermal filler just above the cheekbone and into the temples will restore the ogee curve and lift the brow.
LOWER FACE FILLERS
These anti-aging treatments can improve the skin around the mouth, fill in lines and wrinkles and enhance facial contours.
DERMAL FILLER FOR MARIONETTE LINES
These lines go downwards from the corners of the mouth and can contribute to a sad appearance because the smile goes down. Dermal fillers can strengthen the marionette lines and provide better support for the lips and lower part of the face.
DERMAL FILLER FOR MENTAL CREASE
This dermal filler treatment is used for the horizontal lines between the chin and the lower lip. After the treatments, the lines are removed, the area is smooth again and the lower part of the face gets a better structure.
DERMAL FILLER FOR CHIN
Dermal fillers can be used to create a chin that is more harmonious with the rest of the face - make it less pointy and pronounced. Also, this treatment can make the chin more pronounced if it is too set back and create a perfect facial profile. Chin dimples and creases can be filled up, and the skin texture around the chin can be made smoother and more supple.
JAWLINE FILLER TREATMENTS
Dermal fillers can be used for jawline augmentation treatment to define the jawline and to help pin back any loose saggy skin. Jawline augmentation treatments can help to define the contours of the jaw and the lower face. Women are specifically satisfied with the results of a more uplifted jaw and reduced saggy skin. Men also appreciate jaw augmentation treatment because the saggy skin is reduced, leading to a more masculine jaw.
DERMAL FILLERS PROCEDURE AND DOWNTIME
When patients decide to try dermal fillers treatment for their problematic areas, first they consult with TRU FORM SKIN LABS aesthetic nurses and doctors. They assess the area of concern and create a treatment plan for each patient individually.
Prior to the dermal filler treatment, the practitioner applies a numbing cream or an anesthetic injection to the targeted area. When the skin is numb, the procedure can start and it lasts between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on the number of syringes. Dermal filler placement causes minimal discomfort because the skin is numbed prior to injection. Also, most dermal fillers manufacturers incorporated anesthetic in the product to reduce the sensation of pain. After the treatment, the practitioner will apply an aftercare cream to the treated area.
Patients can leave TRU FORM SKIN LAB right after the procedure and continue with their normal daily routine. Minor side-effects can appear, like swelling, redness, bruising and tenderness to touch; all usually subside within 2 or 3 days.
Although your skin and beauty goals may achieved immediately, ideal results may take more than one session. The effects of dermal fillers treatment can last from 12 months to a few years, depending on the individual’s metabolism and the type of dermal filler used. Sometimes, “touch-up” treatments every few months could be required for some patients to achieve and maintain the desired look.
