When you look in the mirror, are you noticing a hollowed or thin look to your face? As we age, our skin loses elastin and collagen, which can cause lost volume in our face. If this sounds like you, you may be able to benefit from dermal fillers to restore this youthful volume.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that can be used to smooth lines and wrinkles, and restore lost volume to the skin. The two most popular dermal fillers in Brandon for restoring lost facial volume include Radiesse and Sculptra.

Radiesse stimulated the production of collagen in the skin to restore a youthful glow. Made up of calcium-based microspheres, this filler fills in facial grooves, with results lasting up to five years! Sculptra is another filler option that stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production over time for a more youthful appearance. Made up of hyaluronic acid, Sculptra also binds water under the skin, creating youthful volume. Sculptra can last up to two years when injected properly.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Not only are these dermal fillers minimally invasive, they also boast no downtime, so patients can return to their normal routines as soon as they feel comfortable. Treatment is also quick, usually lasting about 15 minutes, so you could even receive your dermal filler during your lunch break!
