Many times, certain areas of the face need added attention to regain their youthful appearance. These target areas can be treated with facial fillers. These treatments involve very little time procedurally and no recovery time. Facial filler treatments may be the perfect choice to help you feel young again.
Arizona Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery offer facial filler treatments designed to help patients experience:
When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested services. Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime or surgery and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel
Juvéderm is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, thinning lips and loosening skin. It can also “plump up” the lips, sculpt the cheeks, and restore a youthful oval shape to the face. It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Because it is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed. Juvéderm comes in three formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Results last about 6-9 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
Sculptra® is an injectable product that restores and corrects the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume. Facial fat loss, or lipoatrophy, is the loss of fat beneath the skin, which can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollow eyes. Sculptra provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas.
The results from Sculptra® are not immediate but they are long-lasting. In a clinical study, effects lasted for up to two years after the first treatment session in most patients. No skin testing is required.
Stem Cell Plasma Rich Protein (PRP) Facial Rejuventation
PRP injections: Plasma Rich Protein, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma, involves injections of the patient’s own platelets and fibrin for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles or scars of the facial region. The procedure ignites growth factors to enhance areas which require volume. Improvement of skin texture and tone can be noticeable within 3 weeks and improvement continues for months as more collagen and elastin accumulates under the skin. PRP has been used in facial rejuvenation around the world since the early 2000′s. PRP treatment is optimal for individuals looking for gradual but noticeable improvement in skin texture and tone with minimal or no recovery time.
Fat Transfer with PRP: In addition to facial fillers, fat from your own body can be harvested and reinjected into your lips, cheeks, chin, under-eye area, and depressed scars to enhance facial fullness, fill deep creases and build shallow contours. With the addition of PRP to this procedure, fat survival rate and retention is remarkably improved.
PRP with Micro-Needling: Micro-needling creates a controlled injury under the skin surface to activate the body’s natural collagen inducing response. This generates new layers of tissue packed with elastin, collagen, fibers and new capillaries. When combined with PRP, tunnels created by the micro-needling process allows infiltration of growth factors into the dermis easily. The deep infiltration of growth factors repairs and triggers tissue regeneration. This combination procedure is ideal for acne scars and skin texture imperfections.
