Dermal Fillers

Low body fat is considered to be desirable, but full facial contours are an enviable symbol of youth. Without adequate facial volume, facial features become drawn and sunken – making you look much older than you’d like. Lewisburg Plastic Surgery & Dermatology offers a variety of dermal fillers to help reverse the effects of aging and help give you the supple skin of your youth.

Fillers can be used for the correction of nasolabial folds, glabella, the periorbital region (including correction of tear-trough deformities), depressed acne scars, perioral lines and oral commissures. They can also add fullness to the lips and cheeks.

Treatment takes about 30 minutes with instant results lasting anywhere between six months to several years (depending on which filler is used). The amount of discomfort depends on the sensitivity of the patient's skin. Sometimes a topical anesthetic is used to dull the pain. The product is injected using a very fine needle.

One week prior to your treatment with filler, avoid taking St. John's Wort, aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, e.g. Advil, and high doses of Vitamin E supplements. These agents may increase bleeding and bruising at the injection site.

Sculptra®

The evolution of the wrinkle filler has led to an amazingly effective product called Sculptra®.  Sculptra® is not a wrinkle filler; it is a volumizer.  It is designed to replace the natural volume (fat) loss that occurs as we age - the volume loss that is responsible for  the appearance of age.  An older face has lost the fullness of the cheeks, lips and around the mouth, and fat loss under the eyes creates a hollow effect.  Where there used to be light, now there are shadows.  By replacing the volume loss, you can help to reverse the creation of shadow and help to restore more a youthful appearance. 

Sculptra®, which is often referred to as the "liquid facelift," is a revolutionary product that works by stimulating your body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue. This helps to minimize lines and wrinkles by replacing lost volume and contours to help restore a fuller more youthful appearance.  Sculptra® achieves excellent results in treating all parts of the face, including the areas around the eyes and lips, between the mouth and nose and throughout the cheeks and neck.

 

Bellafill

Bellafill offers a new, innovative level of filler rejuvenation.  What sets this product apart from other dermal fillers on the market today is that it is comprised of tiny collagen enhanced microspheres. The best feature of Bellafill is its long lasting effect.  As with other fillers, the collagen is absorbed by your body over time. However, the microspheres remain, helping your skin to re-create its own firmer structure for more beautiful, younger-looking skin and longer lasting results. Studies show results can be seen for several years.  As with other collagen-based fillers, a skin test must be completed 28 days prior to treatment to assure no allergic reactions will occur.
