What are Injectable Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like, volumizing substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth fine lines and deep creases, or enhance facial contours. Over the last few years, more than 1 million men and women annually have chosen this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime.

How can Dermal Fillers enhance my appearance?

While dermal fillers are casually known as “wrinkle fillers,” they can do much more than just smooth out wrinkles, although they are excellent at this too! Here are a few of the common issues dermal fillers can help address:

  • Smooth out lines around nose and mouth. (a.k.a. marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses)

  • Enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks.

  • Diminish vertical lip lines

  • Plump & enhance the lips

  • Smooth out a chin crease

What are Fillers Made of?

There are a variety of FDA approved filler products that cosmetic surgeons use to achieve an individual patient’s goals. Each is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density, and injection depth, which means that certain fillers work better for certain areas of concern. At Xxinia Skin Health we use fillers made up of Hyaluronic acid (HA).

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin. It helps keep skin plump and hydrated. HA fillers are typically soft and gel-like. The results are temporary, lasting 6 to 18 months or longer before the body gradually and naturally absorbs the particles. Certain HA fillers are infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment. FDA approved HA fillers include: Juvederm, Belotero, Restylane, Perlane, and VOLUMA.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Hyaluronic acid fillers tend to be the most temporary option, and therefore are often recommended for first-time filler patients. These will typically last from 6 to 12 months, depending on treatment. For example, injections to the lips will wear out a little faster than those to the nasolabial folds. Certain HA fillers, such as VOLUMA, are formulated to last longer, but are usually limited to certain areas, such as the cheeks.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections (Botulinum Toxin)  

You use the muscles of your face to show your emotions, from laughter to concern. But each time you smile, frown, or furrow your brows, your skin folds in the same places – around the eyes and mouth, and between the eyebrows. Over time, these folds become wrinkles and fine lines that can make you look older, sad, angry, or tired, even when your face is at rest.

This treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles between the brows, on the forehead, and around the eyes that are caused by repeated movement of facial muscles over time. These include:

 

Frowning Wrinkles                     Forehead Wrinkles

Crow's Feet                                    Brow Lift with BOTOX

Treatment of Excessive sweating (Hyperhydrosis) 

When severe sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants are not working, you may be a suitable candidate for the Botulinum toxin treatment. The body areas that can commonly experience over active sweat glands are: the under arms, palms, feet and forehead.

Botox is approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough. Botox is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
