Everyone has a unique face, so when it comes to enhancing the appearance or combating some of the most common signs of aging, you need to have options. At Bevel Up in Tampa, FL, we know that different faces will benefit from different dermal fillers, which is why we offer several different brands that can effectively improve the appearance in more ways than one, including fillers from the Restylane family, the Juvederm collection, and Radiesse.
Our Dermal Fillers: The Restylane Family, Juvederm, and Radiesse
At Bevel Up, we offer several different collections of dermal fillers. Some of the fillers we offer are hyaluronic acid-based fillers which means they are made of a gel formulation that contains a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that your body produces to keep the skin more youthful.
Just like the body produces less collagen and elastin as you age, so too does it decrease the production of your body’s hyaluronic acid content, and your skin begins to exhibit the signs of aging. We also offer collagen-stimulating fillers, which contain an active ingredient that forces the body to create more collagen to deliver natural-looking results when injected below the skin’s surface.
Replenishing the Skin’s Hyaluronic Acid Content
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers can combat wrinkles, lines, and hollow areas, correcting asymmetry, improving proportions, and redefining facial contours. They can augment the lips, enhance different areas of the face, and help you achieve the best, most aesthetically pleasing appearance possible. All of the dermal fillers that we offer create natural-looking results, can combat the signs of aging, and help improve facial proportions.
Stimulating Collagen Production Below the Skin’s Surface
Not only can we fill hollow areas with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, but we can use collagen-stimulating fillers to improve the appearance as well. These fillers contain an ingredient that stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin to help add natural volume below the skin and fill areas and smooth wrinkles naturally with your body’s own natural filler, collagen itself.
Choosing the Right Fillers
When it comes to choosing the right dermal filler, some patients may be better suited for one particular brand over another. We take many different factors into account when choosing the right dermal filler for your needs, which is why a consultation is so important. Before beginning the treatment process, we will schedule an initial consultation with an experienced injector.
The Importance of a Pre-Treatment Consultation
A pre-treatment consultation is so critical to this process because it gives you the opportunity to discuss your concerns and your aesthetic goals. It also allows us to evaluate your areas of concern in person, learn more about your medical history, and determine which dermal filler is the right choice for you. We can also provide you with more information about the treatment process, how to prepare for your appointment, and what you need to do post-treatment.
Customizing Your Treatment
Some of these fillers contain a very particular formulation with specific particle sizes that can better address certain areas of the face than others. Particle size is one of the factors we can take into account in designing the treatment plan it’s right for you. Additionally, we can use different fillers to treat different concerns, so it’s important that we have a complete and thorough understanding of the different areas you want to treat or address.
You can rest assured that when you choose our office for your aesthetic needs, not only will you achieve natural-looking results, but you will love those results and feel more confident in your appearance.
The Restylane Family of Fillers
The Restylane family of fillers is a popular collection because it can effectively target different areas of the face and deliver some beautiful and natural-looking results. We offer many different fillers from the Restylane family, including:
The Different Fillers and What They Treat
The Restylane family includes various versatile dermal fillers made of a transparent hyaluronic acid gel formulation. When injected into different areas of the face, they can help fill hollow areas, enhance the features, create new, more desirable facial proportions, and help promote increased volume and elasticity.
These dermal fillers can add volume to the lips without altering a patient’s ability to express, smooth wrinkles and add volume to the hands, address smile lines around the mouth, and smooth nasolabial folds. These fillers can also enhance the chin profile, address and correct deeper facial lines and folds, and restore definition and volume to the cheeks.
Restylane fillers use XpresHAn Technology to deliver volume that allows patients to maintain their normal ability to express. Post-treatment, you can expect some incredible results, but you’ll still look and feel like yourself, just with an improved appearance and more confidence. These fillers deliver long-lasting results and depending on which formulation is used to treat your specific concern, your results can last anywhere from six to 18 months.
Juvederm comes from Allergan, the company that has created some of the most popular injectables and skincare lines, like Botox and the popular SkinMedica. This line of fillers is well known for its versatility and long-lasting results. We offer three very effective dermal fillers from this collection, including Juvederm Voluma, Ultra, and Ultra Plus. Each is designed to target a different area of the face and delivers immediate, long-lasting results.
Voluma is a dermal filler that can be used in two specific areas of the face: the cheeks and the chin. When injected into the cheeks, it can fill hollow areas, contour and define the cheeks by injecting volume into the area and combat age-related midfacial volume loss. It can also smooth facial wrinkles like nasolabial folds and create a more youthful appearance. It can lift the cheeks, and results last up to two years.
Additionally, Voluma can be injected into the chin to improve the chin profile. If you want to create better facial proportions and address your chin profile, this dermal filler can deliver subtle yet noticeable results for up to one-year post-treatment.
Juvederm’s ultra formulation is specifically designed to augment the lips. It can also be used in different areas of the face to smooth smile lines that run from the outer corners of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth.
Those who want a lot of volume in their lips can achieve their desired appearance with this filler, as can those who want just a little volume in their lips. Post-treatment, you can expect immediate results that continue to improve within a week following your treatment, and results will last up to one year.
Sometimes patients require a thicker dermal filler to meet their aesthetic needs, and that’s exactly what Ultra Plus can do. Juvederm’s Ultra Plus formulation can address deeper facial creases and folds in the mid-face region thanks to the thicker formulation and high concentration of hyaluronic acid particles. This filler lasts approximately one-year post-treatment.
Radiesse is a collagen-stimulating dermal filler that uses a primary ingredient called calcium hydroxyapatite to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. When injected into some specific areas, it forces your body to create more collagen and, in doing so, adds volume to the face. Radiesse is a good option for those who want to increase the body’s natural collagen stores in their face or hands. It can improve the appearance of:
- Chin wrinkles
- Pre-jowl folds
- Smile lines
- Wrinkles at the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines
- Aging hands
Results appear within several weeks of the treatment process and can last 12 to 18 months or longer based on how your body responds to the treatment process.
