Restore Facial Volume and Reduce Deep Wrinkles with Injectables and Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers address this volume loss by filling in deep wrinkles and folds, and can also be used to restore volume loss in the lips. A new, exciting application for dermal fillers is filling in the area around the bags under the eyes. There are a number of filler categories available to address these issues.
Denver facial plastic surgeon Dr. Michael McCracken uses a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers, which are longer lasting than collagen and have a high safety profile. These fillers all have added local anesthetic to maximize patient comfort. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in human skin that helps provide skin with fullness, hydration, and elasticity. When skin ages and loses hyaluronic acid, fullness is diminished and wrinkles and deep folds can develop, especially around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvéderm® Ultra, and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus help replace lost hyaluronic acid, restoring facial volume with subtle and natural-looking results that can last up to six months, and in some cases, up to a year. Simultaneous use of Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic in Colorado has been shown to prolong the effect of these fillers.
