Dermal Fillers Las Vegas offer a non-surgical alternative to younger looking skin, enhanced facial volume, fuller lips, and less wrinkles.
Located in Las Vegas, Nevada, we offer a wide range of Dermal Fillers that come in various brands and consistencies. Some, such as the Juvederm Voluma, have a thicker consistency that is used to lift the face and add more volume to your cheeks and chin while thinner fluid fillers might be used to plump your lips.
First of all, you might be wondering exactly what a dermal filler is…by definition, it is simply a fluid that is injected into your skin to ‘fill’ an area. Fillers are made from substances found naturally in your body and are therefore eventually absorbed by your body over a certain amount of months. They are safe, effective, and temporary but some can last up to two years. Most patients find they enjoy the effects of dermal fillers and receive treatments every 4 months or so.
We’re glad you asked. Dermal fillers are useful for many areas including your forehead, eyebrows, eyes, cheeks, mouth area, nose, and lips. You can use dermal fillers for:
As you can see, there is a wide range of trouble areas that can be treated with dermal fillers to restore your youth and/or improve your overall appearance. Dermal fillers are very versatile.
We use several different types of dermal fillers and each has its own unique purpose. Restylane, the Juvederm family, Radiesse, Sculptra and Belotero treatments are the most popular dermal fillers on the market.
Restylane is a non-animal Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is a substance that is naturally found within your skin, usually in your eye and joint liquids. It adds volume to the skin when injected smoothing out wrinkles, lines, and filling hollow areas to provide a more youthful appearance. Restylane was designed to be used in mid to deep dermis injection and should improve moderate to severe wrinkles. You should typically see results immediately and Restylane may last up to 6 months before you would need another injection.
Juvederm is a family of liquid injectables that are also made from HA. Some types of Juvederm have a thinner consistency that are better for injecting into the lips while others are thicker and more suited for adding a lift and volume to your cheeks, chin, and nose area. Some Juvederm varieties also contain the anesthetic lidocaine to provide a more comfortable injection experience. Juvederm injections should last approximately 9 months before you would need further treatment which is slightly longer lasting than products like Restylane.
Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite which is also a substance naturally found within your body that helps make up your bones. This filler differs from HA fillers as it is thicker and needs less volume to have the same effect. This particular filler needs to be injected deeper than HA as, if injected in a shallow area, it might cause lumps. When properly injected though, Radiesse can produce a very natural look that can last up to two years which is a great deal longer than many dermal fillers.
Sculptra is an interesting dermal filler as it is made from poly-L-lactic acid which does not provide an immediate result but instead changes your appearance over time. Sculptra works by replacing lost collagen. As we age, we lose collagen which is the protein that gives our skin strength, elasticity, and helps replace dead skin cells. Less collagen equals older looking skin. Therefore, Sculptra helps boost collagen and over a few months, you will start to notice results that can last up to 2 or 3 years.
Belotero is another HA filler that was formulated to be thinner, lighter, and used on smaller lines, scars, and wrinkles. It is used when you need less volume and fill. It is excellent for correcting fine lines around the lips, smoothing out small wrinkles, and other delicate areas that might be too fragile for other fillers. Belotero works immediately and lasts up to 6 months.
