The news is out about Dermal Fillers. In other words, we’ve come a long way since 1986 and Lisa Rinna’s infamous lip situation. Experts are called in routinely to discuss “did she or didn’t she” for gossip magazines that read often like an advertisement for filler. But if you think that fillers are limited to the world of celebrity, think again. Forbes, NY Times and CNN have all reported on the rapid rise of dermal fillers in the beauty industry. With over 1.9 million procedures performed in 2011, the dermal filler question is rarely “Should I?” but rather “Which one?”
That question is answered best individually. In a complimentary consultation you will meet with our expert Medical Staff where we will go over your medical history, talk about your concerns and let you know what type of results you can get from fillers, including which filler is recommended for you. While there are several types of fillers on the market, research shows that hyaluronic acid based fillers (such as Restylane and Juvederm) are rapidly becoming the facial injection of choice. While collagen-stimulating fillers such as Radiesse and Sculptra typically last longer, the gel-like consistency of hyaluronic fillers make them softer and more ‘spreadable’ which is best for areas like the lips or under the eyes where skin is thin. Restylane, for example, is the only filler FDA-approved for lip enhancement.
