While many people think of aging as merely getting wrinkles, it is also commonly associated with the loss of volume in the face.
Skin loses collagen and elasticity as we age. Facial features once accentuated by fullness can become marked by more severe contours and thin skin.
Dr. Lipkin and Dr. Cliffel are able to help these patients by adding youthful volume to the face. Fillers are an ideal way of achieving the desired result.
The procedure can be performed with minimal to no downtime and without the expense associated with surgery.
Things to know about cosmetic facial fillers:
- Fillers are commonly used to fill in deep smile lines and the lips.
- Facial fillers can be expected to last six to twelve months or longer.
- The procedure is short and most patients return to their normal routine immediately following the treatment.
The most popular of facial fillers are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Dr. Lipkin and Dr. Cliffel use the Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Sculptra® and Perlane® family of fillers. HA occurs naturally in skin and these building blocks deplete as we get older. When injected into the skin the HA attracts water to the site resulting in a look that is soft and natural. HA fillers are reversible, have a low risk of side-effects and the results are long lasting.
While fillers are a safe solution for someone wanting to “freshen” their look, the outcome greatly depends on the experience and skill of the injector. It is important to make sure the person providing your treatment has been properly trained and has experience treating the desired area. Dr. Lipkin and Dr. Cliffel are highly trained in the art of fillers. Their expert knowledge of facial symmetry and balance allow them to produce natural, youthful results.
