Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid substances that restore lost volume in the skin. At Luxbae, the professional filler injectors use Juvederm® and Restylane® fillers to plump up sagging skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Dermal fillers can instantly take years off your appearance by filling in deep lines and skin creases.
Fillers primarily treat static wrinkles, which you can see when your face is at rest. Static wrinkles form from gradual volume loss. As you age, your skin produces lower quantities of the collagen and elastin proteins that once kept it smooth, tight, and hydrated. Without this volume, your skin starts to sag, wrinkle, and become thin and dry.
Injecting volume back into the skin fills in static wrinkles and gives your skin the support it needs. Common types of static wrinkles include:
Dermal fillers typically can’t treat dynamic wrinkles or expression lines. Dynamic wrinkles develop from repeated muscle movement. Luxbae offers neuromodulators, like Botox®, to smooth dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and forehead lines.
When you arrive for dermal fillers, your medical spa provider assesses your skin and facial contours to determine the best placement areas. You can also discuss your aesthetic concerns and desires during the consultation portion of your visit.
To ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed, your provider may offer a numbing anesthetic. This anesthetic can help minimize pain during your injections. Once you’re comfortable, your provider injects the medication into the predetermined areas to restore lost volume. They may massage your skin to help the filler settle.
Unlike neuromodulators, like Botox®, results with dermal fillers are instant. Your results may continue to improve over the next week as swelling from the injections subsides.
Dermal fillers last for about 6 to 12 months. Once they start to fade, you can return to Luxbae for maintenance injections. You can enhance and extend your results by combining your treatment with Botox, facials, chemical peels, and other nonsurgical aesthetic treatments.
