Fillers help the furrows and depressions in our skin that gradually increase as we age. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. Most fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in our skin. This substance is broken down over 6-18 months depending on the product.
Benefits of fillers:
• Significant reduction of fine-to-deep wrinkles
• More volume in the lips, cheeks and tear troughs
• Correction of jowls, vertical lip lines, mouth creases and nasolabial folds
Side effects of fillers:
Patients may experience redness, swelling and possible bruising after the injections. This could last up to 7 days.
Filling material offered by Dr. Campbell:
• Belotero Balance®
Restylane® restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and lips.
Perlane® restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Perlane® provides more volume than Restylane®.
Radiesse® is a deeper filler and used in the cheeks and nasolabial folds. An advantage of Radiesse® is the potential to last one to one and a half years.
Sculptra® is meant to provide more volume. Sculptra® stimulates your collagen to rebuild. This treatment is gradual and very natural with a recommendation of 6 vials over three to six visits.
In a series of 3-6 treatments collagen will be stimulated with maximum improvement seen in 6-8 months. After two years, collagen remodeling is still seen, making Sculptra® the longest lasting filling material on the market.
Juvederm® Injectible Gel
Juvederm® Injectable gel is a smooth consistency gel helping to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. JUVEDERM® also assists with your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds), tear troughs (under the eyes) and lip augmentation.
Voluma® Injectable gel is a deeper filler for mid facial volume loss. Voluma® is one of the newest fillers on the market and can last for up to 2 years.
Belotero Balance® is a superficial filler for very fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth and eyes. This dermal filler is great for very small lines and lasts 6 months or more.
