Dermal Filler in Williamsville, IL
Anti-Aging Dermal Fillers
Surgery isn’t the only way to rejuvenate your appearance and look younger. Facial fillers replenish the hyaluronic acid in your skin to soften lines and wrinkles. Aesthetics ~ Wellness at Ophthalmology Center of Illinois offers facial fillers for men and women in the Williamsville, IL, area.
What Is a Dermal Filler?
Injectable facial fillers are made with substances that occur naturally in your skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) keeps your skin hydrated. As you get older, your body produces less HA, and your skin does not retain water as well as when you were younger. The result is skin that sags, leading to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. Juvederm and Restylane are made with HA to boost moisture levels in your skin and reduce these signs of aging.
Dermal Filler Treatment Areas
Facial fillers are recommended for reducing wrinkles around the nose and mouth. The HA in the injections combines with water and holds it in your skin. The water adds volume to your skin which reduces wrinkles and creases. Fillers may also be used for enhancing your lips and reducing superficial scars.
Procedure for Juvederm and Restylane
Facial fillers are administered with a thin needle. Multiple injections are made in the crease of the wrinkle, and you may feel a slight prick on your skin when the needle is inserted. The dermal filler may contain an agent that numbs the skin for greater comfort. You may notice some tenderness and mild bruising at each injection site. These symptoms may last for up to three days.
Results of Juvederm and Restylane Treatments
You may notice an immediate improvement from the injections due to the gel-based formula of facial fillers. Juvederm takes approximately 14 days for visible improvements, and the results may last up to 18 months. The full effects of Restylane injections may take one to two months and last six to nine months. Follow-up injections are recommended to continue the anti-aging benefits.
Is Juvederm or Restylane the Best Filler for Me?
Facial fillers that are made with HA work in much the same way, and both products provide long-term results. The primary difference between these two products is how easily the gel disperses in your skin. Our lead clinician, Courtney Wilbern, examines your skin and recommends the product that offers the best potential for anti-aging and wrinkle reduction.
