Dermal fillers and injectables are a great way to give your face a boost with minimal time commitment and little to no downtime. Whether you want to treat wrinkles or restore lost volume, all it takes is a quick and easy visit to the office and you will be back out enjoying your day in no time! In most cases, no one will even be able to tell that you got anything done. It’s that easy.
Below are some of the best dermal fillers available at our Hartford, Connecticut area offices.
Botox® is an injectable neurotoxin that works to reduce the appearance of stress and age-related wrinkles. Repetitive movements in the face can cause these wrinkles, and Botox® works to halt these muscle actions for a smoother, more youthful appearance. Approved by the FDA, and completely safe for cosmetic use, the results of Botox® last for about six months and treatments can be repeated as necessary in order to maintain the desired look.
As we age, our body slows the production of certain chemicals, leading to a loss of volume, which can increase the likelihood of wrinkles forming. Juvederm® is comprised mostly of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring chemical that hydrates and plumps by boosting skin’s moisture, volume, and elasticity. Juvederm® hydrates and volumizes the area around the injection site for a more vibrant appearance.
Restylane® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that fills in and diminishes severe lines around the mouth. The injectable gel contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that our bodies produce less of as we age. This product adds volume and boosts moisture production for a smoother complexion and fuller lips.
Radiesse® is formulated to treat more severe lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. This is accomplished by injecting calcium-based microspheres that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Radiesse® is injected deeper into the skin and is particularly suited to treat marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and creases around the chin that can give one a dour and aged expression.
