Facial Fillers Q & A
What are facial fillers?
Facial fillers are volumizing treatments that come in the form of injectables. Modern NewSkin offers several of the latest facial filler brands to enhance certain areas of your face with more volume, which generally adds to a more youthful appearance. They also offer similar treatments that complement the results of fillers well, like neuromodulators for fine facial lines.
As you age, the contours of your face become shallower as you lose the volume of your subdermal fat. At the same time, collagen and elastin loss causes your skin to become looser and more wrinkled. Facial fillers make up for both of these losses by replacing subdermal fat or adding volume to fill in larger wrinkles.
Facial fillers are made with a gel-like consistency, and your skin absorbs them slowly on its own over time. If you enjoyed what you looked like while your facial fillers were active, you can book follow-up injections to revamp the volume.
What can facial fillers do for me?
With facial fillers as part of your treatment, there are many possibilities for the results. You’ll discuss your treatment goals with a provider at Modern NewSkin before you start treatment, so they can recommend the right facial fillers or other cosmetic treatments for you.
A few of the many possible results that facial fillers can help you achieve are:
- Plumper lips
- Reshaped lips
- Fuller cheeks
- Fuller temple areas
- Fewer wrinkles
- Less prominent scarring
- Better facial symmetry
If your main target is fine lines, neuromodulators might be the better option. Rather than adding volume, these injectables affect the muscles that contract without your awareness to form fine lines like crow’s feet and frown lines.
What are my options for facial fillers and similar treatments?
Modern NewSkin offers several high-end options for facial fillers and neuromodulators. After your consultation, your provider might recommend one or more of these:
Juvéderm® fillers by Allergan
Juvéderm’s line includes a range of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Voluma XC for your mid-face and temples, Volbella XC for your eyes and lips, Vollure XC for your lower face, and Ultra XC for your smile lines and lips. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound in your body that keeps your cells hydrated and your joints lubricated. These fillers last for one to two years at a time.
Botox® by Allergan
Botox is the most popular neuromodulator on the market. Its main ingredient is botulinum toxin, which interferes with the nerve and muscle communication causing the development of fine facial lines. It lasts for three to four months at a time.
Dysport is similar to Botox and uses the same active ingredient. It’s intended for moderate-to-severe frown lines. Like Botox, the results last for about three to four months.
