WHAT ARE COSMETIC FILLERS USED TO TREAT?

Cosmetic fillers are designed to enhance your natural beauty by correcting facial wrinkles and folds, augmenting lips, shaping facial contours, and improving the appearance of depressed scars.

Common Treatment Areas:

  • Lip Fullness: Achieve plumper, more youthful lips.
  • Lip Lines: Smooth out fine lines around the mouth.
  • Under Eye (Tear Trough): Reduce dark circles and hollows.
  • Cheeks (Malar): Enhance cheek volume for a youthful look.
  • Nose Bridge: Refine and elevate the nose bridge.
  • Smile Lines (Nasolabial Folds): Soften deep creases running from nose to mouth.
  • Marionette Lines: Minimize lines running from mouth corners to chin.
  • Chin Augmentation: Define and enhance chin contours.
  • Scars (Acne & Chicken Pox): Improve the texture and appearance of scars.
  • Earlobes: Restore volume to earlobes.
  • Hands: Rejuvenate aging hands by adding volume.
WHAT TYPES OF FILLERS ARE THERE AND WHAT ARE THEY MADE OF?

The evolution of cosmetic fillers has led to a variety of options to suit different needs.

Traditional Fillers

  • Bovine Collagen: Derived from cow collagen, once widely used but now less common due to short duration and potential skin reactions.
  • Human Collagen: Similar to bovine collagen but less popular today.

Modern Fillers

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers: The latest generation, made from a substance naturally found in the skin, which provides hydration and volume. Popular products include:
    • Restylane®
    • Juvederm®
    • Voluma™ These fillers last longer and have a lower risk of allergic reactions.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) Fillers: Found in products like RADIESSE®, these fillers stimulate collagen production and provide longer-lasting results.

Specialized Fillers

  • Poly-L-lactic Acid: Used in products like Sculptra®, stimulates collagen production over time for gradual and long-lasting results.

HOW SAFE ARE COSMETIC FILLERS?

When administered by a qualified professional, cosmetic fillers are very safe. Hyaluronic acid fillers, being a natural component of the skin, carry minimal risk of allergic reactions. All fillers used at New You Medical Center are FDA-approved.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS AND POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS OF COSMETIC FILLERS?

Common side effects are typically mild and temporary, including redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. These usually subside within a few days. Rare side effects include prolonged swelling, hypersensitivity reactions, and, in very rare cases, infection.

HOW DO THEY WORK?

A dermatologist will carefully inject the filler under the skin to restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. Hyaluronic acid fillers work by attracting water to the treatment area, providing instant volume and stimulating natural collagen production for longer-lasting results.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS FROM COSMETIC FILLERS LAST?

The longevity of results varies by filler type and treatment area. On average:

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (Restylane, Juvederm)

Last 6-12 months.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers (RADIESSE)

Last 12-18 months.

Considering Cosmetic Fillers in Your 40s

As we enter our 40s, the skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid begins to decrease significantly. This decline leads to drier, thinner skin that loses its elasticity, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Cosmetic fillers are an effective solution to counteract these changes, as they replenish lost volume and hydration. By restoring these essential components, fillers help maintain a youthful and vibrant appearance, enhancing natural beauty and boosting confidence.
