If you’ve lost volume in your face or if you want to add volume to certain features such as the lips or cheeks, injectable fillers may be right for you. These fillers can help to restore lost volume and augment your features to look more youthful.
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical, relatively painless way to help improve your appearance. They can be used on their own or as a complement to another non-surgical or surgical procedure. If you’d like to schedule an appointment, please contact Restore Plastic Surgery by calling 850-500-7527 today. Our facility in Pensacola welcomes patients from across Florida, nearby Mobile, Alabama, and throughout the nation.
Radiesse is a semi-permanent filler that utilizes calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres to stimulate natural collagen production in the skin. It’s unique in that it will immediately plump the skin when the gel is injected, but then it will continue to work as the microspheres stimulate your collagen and elastin.
Radiesse can be used in the face and on the back of the hands to restore volume and plumpness to the skin.
Restylane is a family of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that can help to restore volume in the face. Restylane is great for:
- Reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds
- Plumping the lips
- Reducing the appearance of dark circles
- Augmenting the cheeks
There are many different types of Restylane, each formulated to target specific areas of concern. We will help you decide which type is best for your specific concerns.
Sculptra is like Radiesse in that it builds collagen internally. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen production and increase volume in the skin. Sculptra was initially developed to help people with AIDS who had experienced extreme loss of volume.
Since it stimulates the body’s own collagen, Sculptra results last for a long time.
Fat transfer is the longest-lasting and most natural way to restore volume to the face. Fat is harvested from your own body through liposuction of areas with unwanted fat, most often the abdomen, thighs, or love handles. This fat is then processed and injected into areas of your face that need more volume, such as:
- Under the eyes
- Nasolabial folds
Fat transfer is often used to augment results from a facelift or eye lift to achieve even better overall results.
Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation
Lip augmentation is one of the most popular non-surgical treatments available. Full, plump lips are in, and if your lips are naturally thin or have become thinner with age, you may want to take steps to achieve the lips you want.
HA fillers are best for lip augmentation. We use Restylane to help patients plump and shape their lips. The treatment itself doesn’t take long, but there will be some recovery time needed. Immediately after your treatment, your lips will swell. Don’t worry – this is not your final result. Wait for a few days, possibly up to a week, for the swelling to subside and you’ll see your new, beautiful, plump lips.
You may also experience some bruising, but this can be managed with arnica and can be concealed with makeup. We also offer laser treatments to help speed bruise healing.
