Facial fillers can be used to correct a number of cosmetic concerns including fine lines, tired eyes, wrinkles and facial folds, scars, uneven skin texture, sagging skin and lost volume. Dr. Theocharides offers several types of dermal fillers which allows him the ultimate flexibility to create customized treatment plans and deliver highly personalized results.
Dermal Fillers for Tired Eyes
Tired eyes can make you appear older and worn down. Dermal fillers can rejuvenate and refresh your baggy, tired eyes. As we age the area below our eyes tends to loose elasticity. The area can become puffy or appear darker making your eyes look sunken in. Dr. T can help you determine which dermal filler can best treat your puffy eyes.
Choosing the Best Dermal Filler
Today’s dermal fillers are made of a variety of materials including collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatate which work in different ways to restore volume to the skin, smoothing away wrinkles and defining facial contours. Some of the most popular dermal fillers in our Long Branch, New Jersey office are:
Juvederm is one of the most popular hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, from Allergan, the maker of Botox®. Juvederm is specially designed to treat facial wrinkles in the mid face including the facial folds around the mouth and nose. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is found naturally in the skin, the higher concentration of HA, combined with the smooth formulation make Juvederm longer lasting (up to 6 months or more) than other HA dermal fillers.* Juvederm has also proven to be safe and effective for skin of all types and colors.
Like Juvederm, Restylane is a hyaluronic acid facial filler which is used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds in the mid-face. One of the most exciting features of Restylane is the first and only dermal filler FDA-approved for lip enhancement. Restylane can restore fullness and symmetry to the lips for up to 6 months or longer.*
Radiesse is one of the longest lasting dermal fillers on the market. Tiny calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in Radiesse form a scaffold to support natural collagen regeneration. The long lasting effect of Radiesse make it one of the best dermal fillers for facial contouring.
Bellafill is an FDA-approved, long lasting dermal filler comprised of collagen and PMMA microspheres. Unlike other types of fillers, Bellafill replaces collagen in the face and restructures the skin to support long lasting, natural looking results.
As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.*
Sculptra Aesthetic is a long lasting dermal filler made of a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), the same material used for more than a decade in dissolvable stitches. The microparticles of PLLA work deep within the skin to replace lost collagen and reinforce it’s structure over time.
