DERMAL VOLUME FILLERS: YOUR FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH
With time and photoaging, the collagen and elastin fibers that keep the skin supple and smooth begin to break down, causing loss of facial volume and increased dynamic wrinkles.
These folds and creases eventually become a part of resting facial structure and can make the face appear drawn and aged.
With the help of dermal filler injections, lost volume can be regained and those wrinkles can be smoothed out, turning back your skin clock and renewing and refreshing your appearance.
Here at the Goodskin office, we offer a few different filler options to fit your varying needs. The three main types of fillers we offer are based on hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyl apatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally found substance in our bodies that lubricates the joints and acts as a building block for the skin.
The solution safely encourages volume and evenness of the skin and naturally breaks down in the body. While the treatment should not be painful, a topical anesthetic is applied before the injection, and most fillers now include a lidocaine anesthetic mixture to combat any additional discomfort.
Light bruising and swelling for one to three days is a common side effect of any filler injection.There are many different kinds of hyaluronic acid fillers, and here at Goodskin we offer four: Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvederm®, and Prevelle Silk®.
