Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM and Sculptra provide a non-surgical way for our Michigan patients to refresh their face. Treatments are fast and simple, improving your appearance with little or no downtime. In fact, many of our patients schedule treatments during their lunch hour and immediately return to their everyday activities.
Dysport is abobotulinumtoxinA commercial name, a derived form from the botulinum toxin that causes local muscle temporary paralysis where it is applied. In nature the botulinum toxin is produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum, but the drug is produced in the laboratory in a controlled biochemical process.
Dysport is not only used to prevent and treat facial lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, but also in several other conditions such as excessive axillary sweating, hyperactivity of the superficial muscle in the neck (called platysma), excessive blinking, migraines, joint pain of the jaw, muscular contractures and others.
The effect of Dysport lasts between 3 – 4 months depending on the patient and the amount injected, although it may be necessary to repeat the treatment session according to the desired outcome.
- Consider choosing a reversible filler like JUVÉDERM for your first injection.
- Choose a practitioner that will sculpt your face, not just fill lines.
- Ask about a “liquid facelift.”
Ideal Candidates for Dermal Fillers in Michigan
The best candidates for JUVÉDERM, dermal fillers, and lip injections in our Michigan practice include women and men looking for a non-surgical way to refresh their appearance. Those who have crow’s feet, marionette lines, frown or vertical lip lines, and loss of facial volume can benefit tremendously from treatments.
The standard procedure for JUVÉDERM injections at our Michigan practice is very simple. The product is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. The amount of filler used will depend on the extent of correction necessary, so it will vary from patient to patient. JUVÉDERM is injected into the skin with very fine needles. A topical anesthetic may be applied to the skin before treatment, if necessary.
Sculptra Aesthetic gives our Michigan patients gradual, long-lasting results. Although most do not see results overnight, they will experience a natural-looking improvement in their skin. To begin the Sculptra treatment, makeup is removed, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to the skin. Sculptra Aesthetic is then injected beneath the skin with very fine needles. This procedure is fast, usually lasting no more than 30 minutes, making Sculptra a convenient option for our busy Michigan patients.
Downtime for JUVÉDERM, and Sculptra Aesthetic is minimal. While some of our Michigan patients might experience slight discomfort, recovery from these noninvasive treatments is generally fast and easy.
