Treatment for:Age-related facial changes
Loss of lip volume
Wrinkles and lines
There are a variety of fillers – sometimes referred to as dermal Fillers, that are available for use in restoring the loss in volume due to aging, the reduction of lines and the enhancement of facial features such as the chin. We use several types of dermal fillers including Restylane®, Modelis®, Juvederm® and Teosyal®. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid which is a product occurring naturally in the skin. All fillers have different characteristics that make them suited to treating specific areas. A skilled injector may use several different fillers during the treatment. Fillers re-volumize the area being treated and they may also induce some degree of stimulation of collagen production. We also use Sculptra™ and Radiesse™ that depend on the significant production by the fibroblasts in your skin of new collagen.
Fillers are most commonly used in the face and hands.
The overall result of the use of fillers is the long lasting reduction or elimination of lines and folds and a restoration of more youthful contours. The areas, that are hollowed due to aging, can be refilled. See the section on Soft Lift™ in which fillers are used to provide amazing results in obtaining an immediate youthful fresh look that will take years off your appearance.
Dr. Rosenthal is a physician that has been especially trained in the process of using fillers. Many of our clients remark on her attention to detail, her artistic ‘eye’ in regaining a youthful look, her experience and overall skill.
What’s involved with Fillers?
At your free consultation we will examine your skin and facial structure to determine whether fillers will be beneficial to enhancing your appearance. We may recommend other treatments in conjunction with fillers. At the time of the consultation we will discuss with you your treatment goals and provide you with an estimate of the cost of the treatments.
We use non-permanent facial fillers composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid – Esthelis, Modelis, Boletaro, Restylane®, Juvederm® and Teosyal®.
The cross-linking ensures prolonged stability of the filler. By holding water, the gel hydrates and gives volume to the skin. In time, the hyaluronic gel particles are slowly absorbed and replaced by water. When totally absorbed, the gel disappears-unnoticed by the body.
