Midwest Facial Plastic Surgery offers a wide selection of dermal fillers for patients looking to rejuvenate or highlight the areas of the face. Dermal fillers have a number of uses, including softening facial wrinkles and creases, plumping lips, or enhancing shallow contours. These treatments can be thought of as “liquid facelifts,” where they can correct moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds without adding in surgical recovery time. Due to the quick administration and lack of recovery time, dermal fillers are often taken by patients during their lunch break or while out running errands. At our Evansville, Indiana facial plastic surgery office, Dr. Paik and Shay Glisson, FNP-BC, offer several types of fillers and injectables – all of which are proven to be safe, effective, and convenient for patients who wish to achieve a specific look without the use of surgery.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Restylane® and Juvederm® are some of the most popular hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers we offer. These fillers can instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, such as smile lines or nasolabial folds – the creases that form a “parentheses” from the bottom of the nose to each side of the mouth. Hyaluronic acids, like those used in these injectable products, occur naturally in the body to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Hyaluronic acid and fillers have been proven safe and effective for more than a decade. Because HA fillers utilize the natural fluids of the body, the effects are natural-looking and can last as long as a year.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a highly effective and long-lasting dermal filler. It is made from a completely safe, biocompatible synthetic material. Sculptra is used to treat facial lines, furrows, hollows, nasolabial folds, and wrinkles. The L-polylactic acid found in this filler encourages the natural creation of new collagen layers in the skin, which can tighten skin and replace the natural volume loss that we all experience over time. Unlike other fillers, the results of Sculptra manifest subtly over the weeks or months following treatment. The results of Sculptra Aesthetic treatments are a great long-term solution, lasting up to two years.
