Choosing The Right Dermal Filler For You

Aging can cause changes to our facial skin, affecting our self-esteem and confidence. However, dermal fillers may help to restore skin’s youthful appearance and slow the physical signs of aging. With dermal fillers, the aim is to reduce the look of wrinkles and restore lost volume. The result is a rejuvenated look without creating an overdone appearance.

Why Choose Dermal Fillers

As our skin ages, we tend to lose fat from our faces which results in losing volume in the cheeks or lips. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to form as our skin begins producing less collagen. Dermal fillers are a non-invasive way to enhance skin’s appearance and reduce the signs of aging.

Dermal fillers can:

  • Decrease shadows on lower lids
  • Restore volume and fullness to the cheeks and lips
  • Soften creases
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminish the appearance of scars

Your Sarasota Dermal Filler Options

Hyaluronic Acids

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that is naturally found in the body. It helps by maintaining the skin’s elasticity and moisture as it volumizes. HA dermal fillers may also boost skin’s collagen production.

The goal of dermal fillers is to provide natural-looking, long-lasting results without an overdone appearance, and HA fillers are often the most popular choice.

At Florida Plastic Surgery, the HA dermal fillers offered are:

  • Juvéderm®
  • Restylane®
  • Belotero®

These versatile fillers can be used to treat the following areas:

  • Smooth under eyes
  • Smooth marionette lines
  • Lift and enhance cheeks
  • Plump lips and smooth vertical lines
  • Enhance chin
  • Soften nasolabial folds

Calcium Hydrohylapatite

Calcium hydrohylapatite (CaHA) is a substance found in the body’s bones. This type of dermal filler contains small calcium-rich microspheres that are effective for contouring skin. CaHA fillers are versatile and used to plump the skin and to stimulate natural collagen production. Results are immediate and may last up to 2 years.

Florida Plastic Surgery offers Radiesse®, which is often used to:

  • Fill in acne scars
  • Nose augmentation
  • Jawline contouring
  • Chin enhancement
  • Soften nasolabial folds
  • Rejuvenate hands

Polylactic Acid

Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a synthetic filler that also works as a collagen stimulator. It revitalizes collagen production and treats deep lines and creases, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles. It gradually restores skin’s volume and fullness. However, it may take multiple sessions to achieve noticeable results.

Florida Plastic Surgery offers Sculptra® that is used to:

  • Soften nasolabial folds
  • Chin enhancement
  • Smooth marionette lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
