Are Dermal Fillers For You

Have you tried the expensive and easy way of applying skin-care products on your face to remove the deep lines? It is a proven fact! There is no skin care product that can work as well as Botox or dermal fillers.

We at the Lotus Health & Wellness Spa are not against the benefits with the today’s skin care products, they do work, but age, muscle movement, sun damage, fat loss and a host of other factors takes it’s toll and your face starts looking older around the age of 45-50. If you do nothing then you will be fighting an uphill battle later in life.

Dermal fillers are one way to truly get a lot of your youthful appearance back. In fact, when models, actors, celebrities and women all over the world age 45 or older have facial skin that looks really smooth, plump, and young, you can wager a big part of the reason is that they have had dermal filler injections.

If you can deal with the use of needles (no injections feel pleasant) and are done wasting money on wrinkle or so-called “lifting” creams that didn’t work, then maybe you should consider using dermal fillers.

 

How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers have a very specific function unrelated to other medical corrective procedures. By directly injecting a naturally derived or synthetic material into the frown lines between your brows, the deep lines from the corners of your nose to the corners of your mouth, depressions along the jaw line, the sunken areas under your eyes, or the hollowed areas of your face, wrinkles and lines immediately become filled-in and skin is plumped up to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or fold is gone. This improvement can last from 3 months to 2 years or even longer depending on the type of filler used, how you take care of your skin, and how your face continues to age.

Don’t confuse dermal fillers with how Botox works. Although both procedures involve injections, Botox is most often injected around the forehead and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet) to stop muscle movement that results in wrinkles. It has nothing to do with the plumping smoothing effect dermal fillers have. Many people get both Botox and dermal fillers because the combination can produce a remarkably younger-looking face.

JUVÉDERM®

What is JUVÉDERM® ?.
JUVÉDERM®  is used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose (nasolabial fold). With just one treatment, you can get smooth and natural-looking results that last nine to twelve months.

Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® can be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas from smile lines to vertical lip lines. You can also use it to enhance your lip volume and make them more defined.  Lastly, you can address deep volume loss below the mouth to the jawline (marionettes).
You can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.

 

RESTYLANE

Restylane is a very effective filler used to correct facial wrinkles, deep folds and the volume loss that comes with aging. Restylane is Hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin. Because Restylane is based on this naturally occurring substance, there is no need for allergy testing. Restylane is non-animal based, unlike other dermal fillers and like many collagen based products.

With aging, one will have significant loss of lip volume. Restylane can be used to safely restore ones lips to a more youthful appearance while smoothing out “smokers line” that radiate out from aged lips. For those who want natural looking augmentation of the mouth, Restylane can accomplish that as well.

The most common area of concern for many is the deep line that develops from the nose to the corner of the mouth called the naso-labial fold. Restylane is ideal for correcting that, easily taking a decade off of your appearance.

The “tear trough” is what we call the hollow that develops under the eyes over time that gives people a very tired and worn out look. Restylane can also be used for the restoration of this area of the face.

Some of the other uses of Restylane include, acne scar correction, restoring volume loss in the cheeks and turning up the corners of the mouth in people who have that “sad expression” that comes from collagen loss.  Restylane is great for correcting marionettes.

 

RESTYLANE SILK

The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.

 

RESTYLANE LYFT

What Is Restylane Lyft?
As we age and our faces lose volume, some of us begin to look for ways to regain more definition in our cheeks without surgery. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face.
Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).

How does Restylane Lyft Work?
Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance
