Smoothing Out the Wrinkles: Injectable Filler Options in Baton Rouge and Lafayette
Time marches on they say. But what if it seems to be marching right across your face? You wake in the morning, glance in the mirror, and suddenly you realize the indisputable signs of the years gone by. Your face has lost its fullness, and wrinkles and lines seem to be stretching their reach. Maybe you’re looking for a way to turn back the clock, or maybe you just want to look like “yourself” again. Either way, there are filler options to give you just the results you desire.
There are a large number of injectable fillers on the market, and determining which one best suits your needs can seem an overwhelming task. Each filler has its own unique benefits and drawbacks, and the guidance of a board-certified dermatologist is necessary to make the right selection and achieve the desired results. Here are some common aesthetic concerns which may lead patients to consider injectable fillers, along with the option(s) your dermatologist may recommend.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles – The most common aging concern is the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, this particular concern can be treated with fillers such as Juvederm Ultra and Restylane Silk in addition to botulinum toxins Botox and Dysport. If this is your main area of concern, treatment may include a filler, botulinum toxin, as well as a chemical peel or laser resurfacing for the greatest improvement. For deeper, more severe folds, the injectable fillers Juvederm Ultra Plus or Restylane may be recommended.
Nasolabial Folds (Laugh Lines) – These folds occur along the sides of the mouth and vary in depth and severity for each patient. Filling these in may require a different product than lines in other areas of the face. Commonly used fillers include Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane and Radiesse.
Facial Volume – A youthful appearance is hallmarked by fullness in the face. As we age, this fullness begins to subside in many areas due to the loss of soft tissue, fat, and bone. However, certain injectable fillers are ideal for revolumizing the face once again, virtually erasing years. Ideal fillers for adding volume are Juvederm Voluma, Restylane Lift, Radiesse, and Sculptra.
Lip Volume – A separate concern than facial volume, lip fullness is identified as a desire among women across all age ranges. Lips come in all sizes, and if you feel that yours are too thin or lack just the right amount of volume that you desire, injectable fillers can be used to augment and improve this area. Most frequently, your dermatologist will choose an option such as Restylane, Juvederm, or Belotero Balance.
Each of these products come with their own unique benefits. What works best for one patient may not be ideal for another. While many botulinum toxins and fillers are now offered at day spas or even dental offices, it’s important to choose an experienced physician to help you navigate the overwhelming number of products, achieve the most desirable results, and avoid negative side effects. Choose a board-certified dermatologist whose medical training and level of expertise will work to your benefit.
