Dermal Fillers Sarasota, FL
When it comes to rejuvenating the skin without going under the knife, fillers offer a minimally invasive alternative to plastic surgery. Fillers allow us to plump, enhance, soften, and improve facial and hand concerns. All injections are performed by Dr. Trent at our Sarasota office.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers include Juvederm®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra®. When we think of erasing wrinkles and restoring volume, we look to dermal fillers to help solve these issues. They help treat a variety of concerns, such as nasolabial folds, cheeks, and lips. Dermal fillers have the ability to do the following for the face and skin:
- Restore lost volume to the cheek area
- Minimize dark circles or hollowness under the eye
- Add a natural fullness to the lips
- Reduce the smile and laugh lines around the mouth
- Help give a youthful shape to the face
- Restore lost volume in the hands
How long do Treatments take?
It typically takes between 20-45 minutes to inject fillers into the desired treatment areas.
Are Dermal Fillers painful?
We apply a topical numbing cream before injecting fillers, which makes it relatively painless.
What are the possible side effects of Dermal Fillers?
Temporary swelling, bruising, and redness are the most common possible side effects. Other rare but serious side effects can occur, such as an allergic reaction, skin necrosis, or blindness. People who get cold sores (herpes simplex infections) should start on antiviral medications before treatment to prevent reactivation of cold sores if you are receiving an injection in an area where a previous outbreak has occurred.
What is the recovery time after receiving Dermal Fillers?
There is no downtime with dermal fillers. You can resume most activities right away. Mild swelling, bruising, or redness may occur following injections. These conditions can be alleviated with ice and will improve within a few days.
Who should not have Dermal Fillers?
You may not be able to receive filler injections if you are pregnant or nursing; if you have severe allergies, marked by a history of anaphylaxis or history of multiple severe allergies. Certain fillers should not be used in patients with a history of allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins or lidocaine. Patients who have an active infection at injection site should not be injected with fillers.
What are the different types of Dermal Fillers?
Ultra XC and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC are used to fill fine and deep wrinkles in the nasolabial folds, lips, and perioral area. Juvéderm® is the only hyaluronic acid filler that has been FDA approved to last up to 1 year after a single injection. Results are immediate.
Juvéderm Voluma® is an FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face and can be used to fill and lift the mid-face and cheeks. Voluma® uses a cross-linking technology to bind the hyaluronic acid molecules which produce the lift and fill needed for the mid face, and contributes to its long-lasting nature. Results are immediate and can last up to 2 years.
Restylane® is an injectable gel used to add fullness to the face by eliminating deep lines and wrinkles in the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, perioral area, and lips. Results are immediate and can last 6-12 months.
Restylane® Lyft is an injectable gel used to add fullness to the face. It is an FDA approved filler to re-volumize the cheeks. Immediate results can be seen, lasting between 6-12 months.
Restylane® Silk has a unique particle gel formula that is used to enhance the lips and lines around them. It helps give your lips a softer, more subtle look, just what you want for a natural looking smile. Immediate results can be seen and can last between 6-12 months
Sculptra® is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time, by stimulating your body to produce new collagen and providing you with a very gradual natural appearance. After a full treatment course of Sculptra®, which is an average of three injection sessions over a few months, the results you achieve can last more than two years.
Radiesse® is the only product on the market containing calcium hydroxylapatite. Radiesse® is the first and only FDA-approved product for hand augmentation which corrects volume loss in the hands. Radiesse® restores volume to the hands while providing smooth, natural-looking results that can be seen immediately and can last up to 1 year.
