Dermal Fillers and Injectables Mountain View
Neuromodulators such as Botox©, Dysport©, and Xeomin© are used to relax muscles and prevent or soften expression lines. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm©, Restylane©, and Radiesse© are used to fill in deeper wrinkles and folds in the face or restore volume lost with age.
WHEN TO USE NEUROMODULATORS
You have frown lines in your forehead or crows feet that are becoming permanent without making facial expressions
You have overactive muscles that need be relaxed (i.e. jaw clenching, bands in neck, or “orange peel” skin in chin)
WHEN TO USE DERMAL FILLERS
To add volume to your cheeks, lips, marionette lines, hands, or under-eye hollows
Dermal fillers have different consistencies and compositions to be used in specific areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Belotero® are soft tissue fillers that are used in the lips, midface, and tear troughs. They usually last 8 months to 2 years, depending on the filler. Radiesse® is comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres and used to smooth deeper wrinkles around the mouth or midface. Radiesse® is especially great for restoring volume in cheek bones and hands. Over time, Radiesse® stimulates your own collagen production for lasting results.
