Look Younger Without Surgery: How the Right Fillers Can Take Years off Your Face

Look Younger Without Surgery: How the Right Fillers Can Take Years off Your Face

Mother Nature and her partner in crime — the sun — wreak havoc on facial skin. Years of tanning without sunscreen or broad-brimmed hats allow ultraviolet (UV) light to break down the supporting collagen matrix in your skin, leading to:

For previous generations, the only remedies for facial aging were acceptance or a not-so-good face-lift. 

Fast forward to today, though the good news is that your options for dealing with the signs of facial aging have increased. Some of the best tools we have to help you look as young as you feel, are innovative dermal fillers such as Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Radiesse®.

At The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, New York, our skilled dermatologists and aestheticians are experts at erasing years of sun damage and wear-and-tear with injectable therapies including dermal fillers as well as neurotoxins like Botox, Jeaveau, Dysport and Daxxify.. 

In our office, we favor fillers formulated with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA)., which your body naturally produces HA to maintain fluid joints and plump skin, over time and with sun damage, your HA depletes. That’s one reason why your skin loses thickness and elasticity. 

So how can fillers help you look younger in the mirror and out in the world? Following are the most dramatic ways fillers can change how you look and how you feel.

Dermal fillers can rejuvenate your eyes

At The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, your practitioner analyzes your face to select the right dermal filler family and formulation to meet your needs and goals. One of the simplest ways to bring back a youthful spark to your eyes is to remedy under-eye troughs.

With careful precision and a thin dermal filler such as Volbella®, we fill the sunken troughs beneath your eyes. We place your filler expertly so the result is an under-eye area that looks smooth, youthful and free from shadows.

When treating the under-eye area, the selection of an injection is critical in order to minimize the risk of complications or a poor result, for example: A poorly trained injector may create the Tyndall effect, a bluish discoloration that results if they inject the HA filler too superficially. 

Dermal fillers can bring back your sexy pout

Another unfortunate consequence of aging is that your lips begin to thin. Even if you’re born with plump lips, by the time you notice facial aging, those lips no longer have their sexy pout. Restoring your lip volume is a fast and easy way to erase years from your face immediately. 

Some of the fillers we use in our office including Juvéderm and Restylane make a variety of formulations that can add volume to your lips to the degree you desire. You may choose a subtle restoration that makes your lips look soft and fresh,or you may wish to create (or re-create) a youthful, sexy pout or even out asymmetries.

Dermal fillers can smooth out lines and creases

While Botox and other neuromodulators are the best first-line treatment for lines and creases on the forehead and around the eyes, fillers take care of the rest of the face. 

While thicker filler formulations can smooth out the deep creases and lines often called “marionette lines” around your mouth and nasal labial folds that make you look older or sad. 

Thinner HA fillers can smooth out the pucker lines around your lips, (sometimes called “smoker’s lines.” )They’re also good at filling out wrinkles around your cheek area and Botox treatments can’t completely erase your frown lines, you may need a filler to achieve your desired result. 

Dermal fillers can bring back volume and lift

One of the benefits of dermal fillers is they create more volume in your skin by replenishing your stores of HA. When we inject dermal fillers in your midface, for instance, the extra volume provides a subtle lift to the skin below.

While recontouring your face with dermal fillers won’t be as dramatic as a full face or neck-lift, the right amount of filler in your cheeks and midface can create a more uplifted look with less visible sagging. 

So if your interested in restoring youthful volume and lift to your face with dermal fillers, reach out to us for a rejuvenation consultation today!
