As we age, our faces naturally lose volume. Unfortunately, at the same time our production of collagen slows and our faces begin to sag. We start noticing the areas under our eyes beginning to look hollow as our cheeks start to deflate. As if this isn’t enough, the naso-labial folds seem to grab our attention too as the lines show more than ever. At Alazzo Med Spa, we offer several dermal fillers, such as Juvederm™, Radiesse™ and Belotero™, to help fill the void and correct these problem areas.
Dermal fillers work to reverse the signs of reduced collagen and fat within your skin. There are two types of fillers. One, a hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural product already found in the body. Both Juvederm™ and Belotero™ fall into this category. The other, calcium based microspheres that suspend in gel that stimulates your body to produce its own collagen. Collagen gives your skin a smooth and youthful appearance. Radiesse™ falls into this category of dermal fillers.
All dermal fillers are minimally invasive treatments that work to fill voided areas and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The most common side effects are temporary swelling and redness at the injection site.
While dermal fillers have many of the same characteristics, different fillers are used to treat specific areas. It’s important that you consult with a trained professional to discuss the area you’d like to have treated and your desired results so that they can suggest the best treatment option for you.
