Injectable Fillers (Restylane/Juvederm)
Obviously, during aging our faces develop lines and wrinkles. A simple yet effective way to soften and reduce the wrinkles is with injectable fillers. While collagen injections were once the mainstay of facial line filling, newer, longer lasting, and hypoallergenic fillers are now available and have pushed collagen injections out of most plastic surgeons offices. Intra-dermal fillers, as they are known, are a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid that restores volume and fullness to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles. They are also excellent products to enhance lip volume for a quick lip augmentation. Unlike many offices in our area who delegate the procedure to less skilled nurses, at our office, Dr. Pastrick performs all of his own filler injections. Filler technique is the most important factor in success of the procedure. The various types of fillers available at The Plastic Surgery Center include:
- Restylane Silk
- Restylane Lyft
- Voluma XC
Sculptra Aesthetic is the latest type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. Sculptra Aesthetic gives you a natural looking, fuller appearance that can last up to 2 years upon completion of the full recommended treatment sessions.
Introducing Juvederm Voluma XC. The first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile for up to 2 years.
