Dermal Fillers: Taking the Wrinkles Out of Aging

Aging in a healthy, graceful way is a topic on the minds of many people over the age of 30. One way to accomplish this end is to adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes maintaining your body, mind, and spirit. Dermal fillers are part of a process that is philosophically aligned with an anti-aging lifestyle.

While you can’t turn back time, you can fight back with dermal fillers that reverse the signs of aging by diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

As you age, your face loses subcutaneous fat, which is located directly under the skin. Your skin also stretches, which can accentuate wrinkles, lines, and the loss of volume. Dermal fillers are minimally invasive injections that restore the volume and fullness in your face. These fillers are most often used to plump thin lips and enhance shallow contours, as well as soften facial creases and remove wrinkles. Depending on the quantity and type of filler used, results can typically last from 6 months to about a year.

Dermal fillers are sometimes confused with, but are different than, Botulinum toxin injections (Dysport or Botox). These are also an injectable wrinkle treatment, but work in a way that stops the muscle movements that result in wrinkles.

Restylane, Restylane Silk And Restylane Lyft Dermal Fillers

Restylane is made from biodegradable, (non-animal) hyaluronic acid, a substance found in the skin that naturally provides volume. Hyaluronic acid slowly declines with age. Using this type of filler replenishes this natural element within your skin. Restylane treatment lasts up to 9 months to a year, which means you’ll need fewer treatments than with collagen or Botulinum injections. With maintenance touch-ups once every 6 to 9 months, Restylane can last up to 18 months.

Some of the Restylane products have lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Lidocaine is included in these fillers to help reduce discomfort both during and after treatment — a definite plus. With the addition of lidocaine, 72% of Restylane-L patients reported significantly less pain during treatment and 95% of Restylane Lyft-L patients reported significantly less pain during treatment.

You will need very little down time with either Restylane-L or Restylane Lyft-L dermal fillers. You will be able to return to work and resume your normal activities right after your treatment. Your only restrictions will be to stay out of the sun and refrain from strenuous activities for the first 24 hours.

What You Should Know About Dermal Fillers

Not all dermal fillers are right for all types of wrinkles. You can learn what’s best for you and achieve optimal results by coming to a free consultation at BioVital MedSpa. Dr. Carlos Almonte can make the best recommendation for your situation.*

Restylane Silk is specially formulated with smaller particles which make it the right choice for thin lips and vertical lines above them.

Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane, is the first and only dermal filler approved by the FDA to provide lift and volume to cheeks and correct nasolabial folds.

When you receive treatment, the entire process takes anywhere between 15 minutes to one hour, depending upon the number of areas you are going to have treated.
Always remember to use sunscreen daily since it helps preserve the integrity of your dermal filler.

Indulge In Comfort And Safety

Anti-aging treatment with dermal fillers is a safe course of action with few potential side effects, but it’s still important to choose carefully where you undergo this treatment. A doctor’s office can be a cold, impersonal, uninviting place when it comes to an anti-aging procedure. On the other hand, you can be pampered in the comfort of a qualified spa, such as BioVital MedSpa in Weston, Florida. Biovital MedSpa was started by a woman for women. Our aim is to provide a wide range of preventive and corrective face and body care services within a warm, caring setting.
