What You Need to Know About Injectable Skin Treatments
With age comes a shift in appearance. Skin that was tight and smooth in youth may begin to sag. Wrinkles and creases may start creeping in. While aging is a natural process, the associated changes can make you feel self-conscious and less confident about your appearance.
Fortunately, there is something you can do to reverse the signs of aging. The Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery in Buffalo, NY, offers injectable skin treatments to address age-related cosmetic concerns. These treatment options are less expensive than plastic surgery but can still effectively reduce and smooth facial wrinkles and add volume to the face. Read on to learn more about the options available to you.
Scientific reviews indicate that this injectable skin treatment can safely relax the facial muscles, thereby reducing frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow's feet. When administered by a qualified and experienced professional like Dr. Sherris, you can benefit from effective use and proper application.
When you schedule a procedure at our office in Buffalo, NY, our plastic surgeon consults you and, after determining that you qualify for treatment, administers the injections during a 10-minute appointment. The process is non-invasive and you can resume non-strenuous activities immediately after treatment. The results can last up to six months.
Restylane® fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance found in the body's connective tissues. Restylane increases volume beneath your skin where you have lost collagen and fat tissue. When administered in your cheeks and lips, it plumps them, smoothing wrinkles around the mouth and reducing the nasolabial folds.
Restylane is not recommended for patients with severe allergies to proteins found in hyaluronic acid, but our plastic surgeon at The Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery in Buffalo, NY, will determine your candidacy before treatment. Restylane results can last between six to 18 months, depending on the treatment area.
JUVÉDERM® is another family of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. The products all have different hyaluronic acid concentrations that seek to remedy various skin problems. JUVÉDERM can plump your cheeks, enhance your lips, and eliminate wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. The procedure is non-invasive and often takes under an hour to complete. The effects can last up to 18 months.
RADIESSE® is a filler that contains calcium hydroxyapatite, a compound that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. RADIESSE is usually administered to plump areas on the lower face region. It defines the jawline and reduces nasolabial folds, moderate facial wrinkles, and marionette lines, with effects that last as long as two years.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable treatment containing poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) that stimulates the production of collagen and restores volume to large areas of the face. Though it may take several sessions to see the results, your doctor will give you an estimate before you begin treatment. The results of a Sculptra treatment can last up to two years.
