Dermal fillers are injectables that reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They also fill in areas of your face that have lost volume, such as hollowed cheeks and thinning lips. At Elite Wellness Weight Loss, you have access to some of the top dermal fillers on the market: Restylane® and Juvéderm®.
Restylane and Juvéderm work by plumping and volumizing your skin with hyaluronic acid. In your youth, you produce plentiful amounts of this substance that hydrates and softens your skin. As you age, your production wanes and causes hollowed cheeks and thinning lips. Your skin also becomes dryer and thinner, leading to more apparent wrinkles.
Dermal fillers plump the skin and fill in hollowed areas to erase lines and wrinkles, leaving you with a more youthful look.
Restylane and Juvéderm are effective on a number of common aesthetic effects of an aging face, namely:
Dermal fillers soften your look so you appear younger, without it being noticeable that you’ve had “work” done.
Wrinkle reducers soften the lines and creases that result from repeated expressions. Botox®, which is offered at Elite Wellness Weight Loss, is a purified toxin that temporarily halts the nerve signals that control the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles. An injectable wrinkle reducer like Botox smooths wrinkles in your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes.
Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm produce positive effects for 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used. Wrinkle reducers such as Botox® smooth your look for 3-4 months. You can be treated with both types of injectables on a regular schedule to maintain your youthful appearance.
No, there’s no downtime needed with cosmetic injectables. You can leave and go on with all your daily activities right away.
Another great benefit of dermal fillers and wrinkle reducers is their ease of application. An appointment to have injectables applied lasts just 20-30 minutes. You may have a little redness or bruising at the injection sites, but this fades within a few days and can be covered easily with makeup.
