Dermal Fillers

As you age, you’ll begin to see volume loss throughout much of our skin. This is generally most noticeable on the face:

hollow cheeks, folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), and thin lips. Aging and volume loss can also

negatively impact the appearance of our hands, making them look bony and thin.

Dermal fillers help improve the volume loss and instantly soften wrinkles by filling them in, as their name suggests.

Dermal fillers help improve the volume loss and instantly soften wrinkles by filling them in, as their name suggests. Fillers are injected with a needle or microcannula into or under the skin, depending on each product’s individual application. Most of the fillers contain an anesthetic ingredient, such as lidocaine, to make the administration minimally painful. The most common treatment areas can be divided into three different categories.

Folds, Grooves & Wrinkles

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft (formerly Perlane®), Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus, and Belotero Balance® are injected directly into folds or wrinkles to reduce their appearance.  These HA fillers are most commonly used for treatment of nasolabial fold, lips, pucker lines, marionette lines, and tear troughs under the eyes.

Some HA dermal fillers are more volumizing than others. Therefore, in certain treatment areas, one product may be preferable over another. Dr. Krysinski or his Physician Assistant, Sarah, will talk to you about your aesthetic goals and will discuss the best treatment solution.

Overall Loss of Facial Volume

Volume loss in the midface, such as sunken or hollow cheeks, or lack of definition along the jawline can also be improved with dermal fillers. In these areas, more volumizing fillers, such as Restylane® Lyft (formerly Perlane®), Juvéderm® Ultra Plus, Juvéderm® VOLUMA, and Radiesse® are most appropriate.

Hand Rejuvenation

Although their appearance is often overlooked when considering skin rejuvenation, our hands can certainly reveal our age. If deflated, thin and bony, our hands can make us look much older than we are.

Injecting dermal fillers like Restylane® Lyft (formerly Perlane®), Juvéderm® Ultra Plus or Radiesse® can improve the aged appearance of the hands, giving them a smoother, softer and more youthful look.
